Saks Fifth Avenue considering leaving Bal Harbour Shops after a recently approved expansion plan. The plan calls for $400 million of work including 430,387 SF of new retail space with a new flagship anchor location which is expected to become a Barneys New York. The existing Neiman Marcus location will also expand. The expansion plan is being designed by Zyscovich Architects and Whitman Family Development hopes to break ground by the end of 2017 with an expected completion in 2023. Saks Fifth Avenue's opposition to the plan comes amid the developer, Whitman Family Development's, lack of attention and possible expansion that was offered to the Saks location. Saks Fifth Avenue would also lose parking and be forced to rely on valet for customers. Whitman Family Development also owns a minority stake in Brickell City Centre, where Saks Fifth Avenue also just opened up a flagship location.
