School Of Whales Crowdfunding Project Will Turn Miami’s Historic Post Office Into Food Hall
Miami-based real estate crowdfunding startup School of Whales has unveiled plans for its second restoration project aimed at revitalizing a historic city landmark while offering locals an investment opportunity.
Next year, School of Whales cofounder Andrea Petersen says the group will launch its latest crowdfunding complex in the city’s historic Post Office building located at 100 NE First Avenue.
When complete, the 36,500-square-foot space will transform into a four-level gastronomic hub, a development Petersen promises to be a mindful preservation of the 1912 neo-classical building.
While the property is currently in the final stages of planning, a number of tenant selections have already been secured and two floors fully renovated. When it opens, the venue will offer a number of food and beverage-themed concepts, and will also be home to Biscayne Bay Brewing, which first announced plans of opening a downtown brewery and taproom in 2018.
Additional concepts will include the first stateside restaurant by a well-known Mexican chef; a Japanese izakaya and sake bar curated by a world-renowned restaurateur; a traditional Mexican café and bakery; and a mezcal bar.
