Native Realty is giving Fort Lauderdale foodies much to be excited about. The firm just finalized lease agreements with five food-and-beverage concepts at Marina Village, the waterfront food hall/entertainment venue located within the city’s iconic Bahia Mar resort.
Firm CEO Jaime Sturgis and COO Kaley Tuning exclusively represent Bahia Mar’s ownership, led by developer Jimmy Tate, in leasing Marina Village. With 35,000 square feet of open-air space nestled between the Intracoastal Waterway and Fort Lauderdale Beach, Marina Village is sure to become a go-to dining and entertainment destination.
“We are thrilled to activate a critical component of Bahia Mar by completing these Marina Village leases,” Sturgis said. “Marina Village will be the epicenter of Fort Lauderdale Beach and provide a much-needed elevated dining experience for locals to enjoy. All of these concepts were hand-picked and curated – they have established local followings and perfectly complement each other.”
Newly signed tenants at Marina Village include:
- Blue Steel Pizza, a Detroit-style pizza concept that originated in New Jersey and has a big following
- Burgers and Shakes, which has existing locations in Hollywood Beach and North Miami Beach. The Marina Village location will offer made-to-order burgers and shakes, along with two specialty craft beers
- Fresh Garden Bowls, which provides healthy alternative food with seasonal, mostly organic and non-GMO ingredients
- Quore Gelato, a fusion of small batch gelato and world-class liquors. Malcolm Stogo, the inventor of cookies-and-cream ice cream, is behind the concept. Quaro Gelato has existing locations in the Aventura Mall, Hollywood Beach and Wynwood
- Yip, a fast-casual dim sum concept initially founded on handcrafting dumplings from scratch each morning. It has numerous locations in South Florida, including in Aventura, Doral and Wynwood
