Miami Beach is one of the world’s most famous resort cities, and Lincoln Road is at the epicenter of what makes it great, being lined with some of the ritziest clubs, restaurants, lounges, and luxury boutiques in South Florida. With its trendy reputation and millions of potential customers pouring in every year, it’s no wonder that the world’s largest tech company has taken an interest in opening a store there. Local real estate news site Curbed Miami has more: “Apple’s desire for a big, flashy new Apple store on Lincoln Road to replace their itty bitty little one remains quite strong after their last plans were denied by the HPB board for the Gap site. The new plans are to demolish a one story building right next door, at 1021-1025 Lincoln Road and replace it with a two story store. Although we haven’t seen the new designs, we assume it’ll be white and glassy.

These visitors, many of whom are affluent, spend millions of dollars on all sorts of goods and activities – especially on high-end consumer products, for which Apple is most well-known. Miami Beach is a thriving and dynamic community, with numerous high-end condominiums, stores, and commercial centers scheduled for completion in the coming years.
