Where BCBG once was, now stands a different display of art – performing art! The Miami City Ballet, whose normal location on Liberty Avenue has been closed since March, was on the market for a space where dancers can practice outside of their homes. With the plethora of vacancies on the once-bustling Lincoln Road combined with Miami Beach’s pivot toward a culture and arts vibe, allowing the dancers to showcase their talent for the world to see seemed like an obvious move to Michael Comras, CEO of Comras Development Company. “With more vacancies, this is what we need to bring to retail,” Michael Comras said. “People want arts, culture and to be entertained.” Not to mention, Miami City Ballet originally opened on Lincoln Road 35 years ago before moving a bit north on the beach.
