Bayside MarketplaceEdit profile
Bayside Marketplace is a festival marketplace in Downtown Miami, Florida. It's in between Bayfront Park to the south end, and the American Airlines Arena to the north. As Bayside's name suggests, it wraps along the banks of the Biscayne Bay.
The entertainment complex opened in 1987, while a major real estate boom was taking place. Instead of being planned to revitalize a specific area as its sister properties had, Bayside complements an existing marina. The shopping center was frequently featured on the crime drama TV series, Miami Vice.
The center attracts on average fifteen million people annually. It is served by the Metrorail at the Government Center, and directly by the Metromover at College/Bayside station.
Chicago-based General Growth Properties manages and owns Bayside Marketplace.
