MIAMI (Nov. 7, 2023) – Brightline MiamiCentral signs Brooklyn Dumpling Shop, the first in a series of upcoming new tenant announcements within the six-block transit-oriented development in the heart of Downtown Miami. Opening Summer 2024, Brooklyn Dumpling Shop is a fast-growing, technology-driven, contactless concept serving classic dumplings, bowls, and bites.
The Comras Company, a well-established Miami-based commercial brokerage firm, is representing the limited-remaining prime retail leasing at Brightline MiamiCentral. This includes strategically positioned restaurant spaces situated in the heart of the "New Downtown Miami." The Downtown Miami neighborhood is experiencing a remarkable surge in growth and expansion, with numerous residential and commercial developments currently underway. This dynamic transformation is largely attributed to the allure of the intercity rail hub, making Brightline MiamiCentral a pivotal destination for businesses.
“The Brooklyn Dumpling Shop team looks forward to opening our first South Florida location in the heart of Miami - Brightline MiamiCentral,” said Brooklyn Dumpling Owner and Founder Stratis Morforgen. “Attracting residents, executives and visitors, now even arriving from Central Florida every hour, we look forward to this high-traffic neighborhood serving as a perfect location in this market.”
Brooklyn Dumpling Shop cuisine includes traditional dumplings such as Chicken Teriyaki Potstickers and Shrimp & Vegetable Shumai alongside unique Crispy Dumpling flavors like Bacon Cheeseburger, Chicken Parmesan and Buffalo Ranch Chicken.
“South Florida continues to experience historic growth and investment with Downtown Miami, one of the epicenters of this capital movement,” said Michael Comras, president of Comras Company, who along with Jeff Evans and Michael Silverman are spearheading the leasing and the merchandising strategy. “MiamiCentral is a unique live-work-play destination with the added appeal of seamless connections to South Florida city centers and now Central Florida.”
Located at Northwest 1st Ave., between Northwest 3rd St. and 7th St. MiamiCentral is the premier business, leisure, dining, and transportation hub with tenants including Joe and the Juice, Chick-Fil-A, Starbucks, Powerhouse Gym, and class-A office space. The destination creates a focal point among Miami Worldcenter’s 2,000+ residential units and 250,000 square feet of retail, Miami Government Center, Bayfront Park, Mana Common, the Flagler District and Block 55.
“Brightline MiamiCentral is a transformative transportation hub, that continues to re-define the future of downtown and impact investment in the community,” shares Patrick Goddard, president of Brightline. “We look forward to welcoming Brooklyn Dumpling Shop and more offerings to MiamiCentral in partnership with The Comras Company, bringing the best in retail and restaurants to the heart of downtown Miami.”
MiamiCentral is also home to ParkLine Miami and its 816 fully occupied luxury rental residences situated atop the Brightline station and retail space. Office tenants within the encompassing 2MiamiCentral and 3MiamiCentral include Blackstone, Ernst & Young, Uber, Carlton Fields and Viacom.
