On Monday, Design District literally unravelled itself, revealing the retail project that's been going on for the last few years. Now open is the Palm Court, a huge open square of luxury shopping with an immense Buckminster Fuller Fly's Eye Dome sculpture in the center (which you can descend into) and a blue Le Corbusier sculpture sitting submerged into the ground.

As New York Post puts it, "The Design District's central Palm Court will house one of the highest concentrations of fine jewelry in the nation." Call the first floor "watch row," as it has four luxury watch stores- A. Lange & Söhne, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Hublot, ECJ Luxe- lined in a row, with a third Alchemist location in Miami focused mostly on jewelry, and one more watch store . Almost every store is still under construction, like Emporio Armani, Valentino, although a few stores were either open or looked almost ready to open. Click through to see what we saw today from the entrance of the Palm Court to the second floor, and head over to explore it for yourself over the weekend!
