Luxury retail center Bal Harbour Shops announced it will bring the first Barneys New York to Florida, with a 53,000-square-foot store to open in 2023.
The new Barneys New York at Bal Harbour Shops will anchor the Shops’ $400-million, 350,000-square-foot expansion. When it opens, Barneys also will bring its signature restaurant, Freds at Barneys New York, serving European- and American-inspired cuisine from executive chef Mark Strausman.
Matthew Whitman Lazenby, third-generation leader of Bal Harbour Shops and the President and CEO of Whitman Family Development LLC, said his family is “proud and humbled” to welcome Barneys New York to the Miami area.
“We could not be any happier if we tried about Barneys New York finally coming to Bal Harbour,” he said. “Theirs has always been a unique and compelling perspective on fashion and on luxury – and through Freds, on food, too – and we know their point of view will resonate with our customers.”
Added Daniella Vitale, CEO and President of Barneys New York: “It’s a milestone for Barneys New York to launch our first location in Florida at Bal Harbour Shops, which attracts the best clients from around the globe, who mirror today’s Barneys clients. We’re excited for Bal Harbour shoppers to experience Barneys New York’s renowned approach to creating environments with exclusive, rare and highly-edited products coupled with luxury services, food, and digital experiences.”
