Introducing The New Giralda Plaza

shopping at grand giralda

Giralda Plaza has undergone a dramatic transformation into a more modern, open-air hotspot. And now, the wait is nearly over! If you’ve enjoyed the Giralda Al Fresco events throughout the summer, they have only been a sneak preview – a mere sample – of what’s to come.

New Places, New Faces

Since construction began last year, the project’s ultimate goal has been to create a new and more pedestrian-friendly locale for people to shop, socialize and dine. These enhancements have added beautiful walkways and a new promenade, but also new shops and eateries.

While some restaurants have remained open during the construction, there are some new places for diners to explore upon the plaza’s opening. One of them is Rice Mediterranean Kitchen, an offshoot of the Rice House of Kabob restaurant in South Miami. It offers a “build your own bowl” style of Mediterranean cuisine with all manner of vegetables, grains, sauces and meats for patrons to experiment with.

A Flexible Future

One of the distinctive features of the redesigned Giralda Plaza is the flexible nature of the streetscaping. At present, and for the next two years, the plaza will be closed off to vehicular traffic, courtesy of removable pylons at either end.

While this was done with the agreement of the businesses on Restaurant Row, the fact that the pylons can be removed – if necessary – ensures that the plaza can be reintegrated as part of Giralda Avenue, as well as allowing for events such as classic car shows or accommodating trucks used to move in equipment for special performances.

With its versatile design, the new Giralda Plaza is built to delight and entertain for years to come.
