One of the top retail meccas in the country – Miami’s Lincoln Road – is getting a full dose of Gap Inc.

Recently, we opened a 19,000-square-foot Gap store, our newest flagship, with Athleta and Intermix alongside it. About a block away, we have an existing Banana Republic store inside an historic bank structure.

It means we will have our corporate portfolio well-represented in this popular region, which teems with shoppers and international tourists.

Built from the ground up, the Gap store was designed by the award-winning Miami-based Touzet Studio and the building sits among the historic structures along the length of the Lincoln Road promenade.

We are excited about being the first retailer to deliver a new iconic structure in this area and to have the opportunity to not only imagine, but go all the way and build, what modern Miami Beach looks like.

As a result of a partnership with local civic leaders, we will be delivering a piece of architecture that respects forms of the past, absorbs the light and materials of Miami Beach itself, and is oriented to hold hands nicely with the future of the district.

During a grand opening event, beautiful South Beach-themed images captured by four of the city’s most influential Instagrammers were projected on the exterior façade of the store building.

This embodies in-demand, urban space, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have such a strong presence here.
