Taubman Eliminates Plan for Enclosed Mall for Miami Worldcenter Project

by John Nelson

MIAMI — Taubman Centers Inc. has decided not to move forward with an enclosed regional mall that was slated to be part of the Miami Worldcenter mixed-use development in Miami. Instead, Taubman, in conjunction with The Forbes Co. and Miami Worldcenter Associates, is now pursuing a high street retail plan that will better utilize the characteristics of the site and the market. Taubman expects to recognize a charge of $11 to $12 million for the write off of previously capitalized costs related to pre-development of the enclosed mall plan. Taubman and Forbes have agreed with Miami Worldcenter Associates on preliminary terms to lease the retail portion of the street level project with an option to purchase the retail component for a pre-determined price once it opens.
