Project Description

Aventura Mall Expansion

Defined by culture, style and taste, Aventura Mall’s new three-level wing creates an inviting indoor-outdoor exchange highlighted by experiential, site-specific additions to the Arts Aventura Mall collection, as well as an array of dynamic shopping and dining experiences.

The 315,000 square-foot expansion wing’s three key design points – transparency, connectivity and integration – provide a completely unique experience for visitors. An 84-foot by 50-foot glass wall at the entrance offers panoramic views of the surrounding landscape and a continuous 350-foot skylight runs the length of the wing, providing abundant natural light.

As visitors arrive at the new wing, they are awed by the monumental, nearly 93-foot tall, spiral Aventura Slide Tower by German artist Carsten Höller, which leads a double life: towering landmark and exhilarating slide. Adjacent to the Slide Tower, Gorillas in the Mist, a whimsical outdoor fountain by The Haas Brothers, features three larger-than-life bronze gorillas and four massive bronze trees, circulating and spraying water.

A shopper’s paradise, the wing also offers an abundance of new retailers, including a two-level Topshop Topman, Zara, Adidas, Pomellato, and more. The third floor welcomes guests to a well-curated Treats Food Hall where communal seating encourages encounters among guests in the bright and airy space.
