Lincoln Road's transformation into the kind of shopping center you'd find in suburbia continues today with news that American Eagle Outfitters and Urban Outfitters are planning to set up shop along the pedestrian mall. ExMiami reports that the two retailers are the latest big-brand clothing stores to set their sights on South Beach.

The chains are joining recent additions like H&M and Forever 21, as well as longer-standing stores like The Gap and J.Crew, along the pedestrian thoroughfare. Zara also announced that it'll be opening its own store with a Lincoln Road address.

We've reached out to both Outfitters brands for store details and opening dates, and we'll update this post as soon as we have more information.

UPDATE: American Eagle tells us that their store will be located at 825-829 Lincoln Road. They've signed a lease for 4,500 sq. ft., and are anticipating a late fall opening date.

In the meantime, think on this: Lincoln Road was once a unique architectural fixture in Miami, redesigned by Morris Lapidus as one of the first pedestrian malls in the country. Today, only about a half-century later, it's an Orange Julius away from becoming a carbon copy of the shopping centers you'll find anywhere else in the U.S.

It's not a new realization -- Lincoln has at least a decade of serving as South Beach's glorified mall under its belt. Still, sometimes the pace of development is just breathtaking, isn't it?

Love seeing all these changes to Lincoln Road.... It's safer, more places to shop, it's walkable and architecture is intact thanks to laws protecting it! Yes like everywhere else, big retailers can pay the big bucks.... Has anyone walked 5th Ave in the last year??? Talk about tourist trap, discount stores are all over that Ave... Talk about Orange Julius!!!!

Orange Julius ? Exaggerate much ? The food is hardly the mall food court. And as long as they're more solid retailers, what difference does it make ? 2 Starbucks locations, LOL, South Beach loves it.

Lincoln road has had it cycles from boom to bust, the huge rents may very well lead to the next bust. This wonderful street has lost its wonderful charm

Lets all be honest here. Once the term SoBe was coined it was all over. BUT we do have our memories and they can't take that away! By the way, I look fondly on the memories of shopping at all the thrift stores on lincoln road by day and sneaking into the clubs at night. For me the nail in the coffin was the GAP down the street and the $25 parking during the day that was established many many moons ago. I am obviously dating myself here but like I said memories....thank God I was born and raised in Miami!

I hate what it's become but I'm glad all the shitty bling boutiques are being pushed out. UO has been trying to get in Lincoln Rd for years. They wanted the theater but faced strict rules for their planned remodel. I guess H&M wrote a big enough check to break the rules.

"Miami is seeing the $$$ and getting greedy." would you charge hundreds less on a property you owned or would you maximize your investment?

who said MIAMI had any real identity of it's own ? = everyONE comes from somewhere else and everyTHING only lasts a season or so and although many do VISIT most don't WANT to live here = it's PLASTIC and FUN but immature and a scam = like a circus you want to go to see the freakshow BUT you don't want them to LIVE around you

Lincoln Rd was never shady. It was funky, quite different sense.

It's what the masses want isn't it? I remember when Lincoln was all consignment, second hand and boutiques....not to mention preetty damn shady once night fell. No, not so Bohemian any more : /

Reminds me of how bohemian the Grove once was until it was gentrified and is now mostly empty storefronts.

The only square footage that makes money on Lincoln Road is Starbucks and Apple. The other clothing stores are simply advertisements/reminders to the millions of people that walk Lincoln every year.

Rent prices are so high on Lincoln Rd. that only massive companies can afford store fronts there. For some companies it's probably "worth"while having a storefront on Lincoln Road even if it loses money; it's a status symbol that reflects well on the overall company.

It's already a carbon copy of the Santa Monica Promenade.
