Well Brickellites, looks like you'll soon be able to make your Genius Bar appointments in your own metropolis, and at a rather large Genius Bar too. Yesterday The Real Deal and South Florida Business Journal revealed that Apple would be opening within Brickell City Centre (yay!) and that this will be its largest store in Florida yet!
The plan seems to have been in the works for a couple of years now. Back in 2014 a credible source slipped us the potential news, way before we knew who any of the 70 other tenants were. Apple and Brickell City Centre spokespersons declined to comment on the matter. The store won't be opening up until later this year so for now you can visit Apple's other locations at Aventura Mall, Dadeland Mall, and its impressive new digs on Lincoln Road.
