Bal Harbour Shops with its high-end brands, and then there are always a whole bunch of options available across the MacArthur Causeway at Brickell City Centre and the Design District. However, you can still find a Starbucks in the Marriott Stanton, a Publix, Target, Best Buy and other big box stores on 5th Street, an Equinox and Orange Theory Fitness nearby, and a Whole Foods on 10th Street.

Opinions and Advice New Emotional Support Animal (ESA) Law Florida: Complete Condo Guide
Finding and moving to a new home can be a strenuous experience, even when you like the change you’re making. This is more so when you have an emotional condition or disability and part of your treatment involves having an Emotional Support Animal (ESA). In this case, finding a new home comes with a whole new set of challenges only you and your furry friend can know. And no one needs the added fear and stress of possibly being denied housing or being discriminated against for owning an ESA. Thankfully, a new Florida law on emotional support animals that went into effect July 1, 2020, explicitly states what you and your current/prospective landlord or HOA can and cannot do regarding Emotional Service Animals. The law applies to all condos, apartments, and rental homes. Last updated on March 27, 2024.
