In November 2017, Aventura Mall opened a three-level, 241,000-square-foot (22,400 m2) expansion wing designed by Carlos Zapata and JPRA Architects.
IPC developed the landscape masterplan for exterior areas of the luxury extension. The ground floor courtyard now houses enormous native canopy trees including Mahogany (Swietenia mahogani), Black Ironwood (Krugiodendron ferreum) and White Tabebuia.
Interactive art pieces are embedded within the exterior areas including the 93-foot-tall Aventura Slide Tower by Carsten Holler and Gorillas in the Mist by The Haas Brothers, set amidst mature transplanted trees and fruiting bananas.
Aventura Mall attracts 26,000,000 people a year.
