Publix Plans Latest Urban Unit for Miami

LAKELAND, Fla. -- Regional grocer Publix Super Markets has signed a lease to anchor a new, upscale urban lifestyle centre in the heart of Miami's Brickell Financial District, the project's developer said yesterday.

Publix is the latest in a growing list of tenants in the centre, which includes an eclectic mix of high-end shops, restaurants, and services. Construction on the new Publix location is scheduled to begin in early 2008 with a grand opening planned for late spring/early summer 2008, according to Ivanhoe Cambridge, the owner, developer, and manager of the property.

The 31,000-square-foot Publix will feature traditional grocery, meat, produce, dairy and frozen foods departments, as well as full-service bakery, deli, and fresh seafood departments. It will also include two levels of dedicated parking for Publix customers above the store.

The first stores in Mary Bricknell Village opened in May 2006.

In other Publix news, the company is planning to build a second health clinic to treat minor on-the-job injuries. Its first such clinic opened in Deerfield Beach two years ago.

The new 1,400-square-foot clinic, which will be operated by an outside vendor, will be located near Publix' manufacturing facilities on North Galloway Road to treat minor injuries that occur in the company's local distribution center and plants, spokeswoman Shannon Patten told the Lakeland Ledger. The clinic is expected to open in the first quarter of 2008.
