MIAMI– As part of what will be a very active area in the new ballpark, the Marlins will open a state-of the-art retail area accessible to the public 365 days a year that will feature unique shops and restaurant to highlight Miami’s local delights. These areas will be located on the West Plaza adjoining the ballpark.

Currently, the Marlins are calling on local retailers to bid for the opportunity to become part of this new retail area in Little Havana. The Marlins are looking for long-term leases for the development and management of a full service public restaurant and bar as well as four individual retail stores to be located on the Ballpark Plaza. Selected retailers will have daily customer traffic, in addition to at least 81 Major League Baseball Games, World Baseball Classic, concerts, trade shows, other sporting events, and private functions.

The new shop and restaurant area will have an economic impact in the Little Havana community and will generate further employment opportunities in the area. Currently, over 2,000 people have worked in the construction of the New Ballpark, from which 62% are from Miami-Dade County and 33% are from the City of Miami. Also, 58% of firms working in the construction are from Miami-Dade County.
