Just to the south of the
Miromar Outlet Mall is Miromar’s newest project, the International Design Center.
The first phase of the International Design Center will host 250,000 square feet on three floors and is scheduled to open in the fall of next year. There will be a sky-lit atrium lobby, valet parking, and a gourmet café and coffee bar. The second phase will add two additional wings of 75,000 sf each to complete the intended total of 400,000 sf.
If you are familiar with DCOTA, the Design Centers of the Americas, in Atlanta or Miami, this will be similar in concept. It will be a resource center for interior design, housing showrooms of fine furniture and accessories, fabrics, wall coverings, lighting, kitchen, bath, flooring, art, and antiques.
But look at it’s regional draw: designers and their clients from this area will have a shorter trip to this design center than to either of the other two. Additionally, the first floor will be open to the public all year long with designers on staff. Future plans will include a hotel conference center and an office complex.
