RAPAPORT... Macy's Inc. signed an agreement with Miami Worldcenter in Florida for  Macy's and Bloomingdale's stores to anchor the new mall by the third quarter of 2016. Miami Worldcenter, a major mixed-use project with retail, hotel, residential and convention space, is being planned by The Forbes Company and Taubman Centers Inc.

The Macy's and Bloomingdale's stores -- each on three levels -- will anchor the north and south ends of the retail complex. Macy's will occupy a 195,000-square-foot store  at Miami Worldcenter with a full range of offerings.

"Miami is a vibrant marketplace and Macy's is well-known to customers who are year-round and seasonal residents, as well as to visitors who come from around the world to enjoy south Florida's weather, cultural, sports, entertainment and culinary attractions," said Peter Sachse, Macy's chief stores officer. "Miami Worldcenter promises to be a world-class attraction, and we look forward to enhancing our ability to serve customers with a tailored merchandise assortment and shopping experience that meets the needs of south Florida shoppers."

Bloomingdale's in the mall is expected to be 120,000 square feet and include special product offerings.

Michael Gould, the CEO of Bloomingdale's, said, "Bloomingdale's knows the exceptional and distinctive fashion that makes south Florida an international hot spot. Customers look to Bloomingdale's for styles and looks that set the trends in an environment of attentive, personalized service. That is what they will find in our new store in Miami. It will be the best that Bloomingdale's has to offer for this savvy fashion customer."
