Celebrities and VIPs gathered at Sawgrass Mills to unveil South Florida’s most desirable parking experience, #TheHauteSpot, located in the new 1,700-space parking garage outside The Colonnade Outlets. The space’s impressive design was imagined by Jonathan Stein (aka “Lord of the Bling”). The local artist used 100,000 genuine Swarovski crystals to create a mural that was inspired by a collection of sunrise photographs to pay special tribute to the City of Sunrise.
Adrienne Bosh, wife of Miami Heat superstar Chris Bosh, made a grand entrance as she pulled into the garage in style driving a Fiat 124 Spider provided by the Rick Case Automotive Group. Bosh’s pop-up boutique store, Sparkle and Shine Darling, is located in Bloomingdale’s – The Outlet Store at Sawgrass Mills through September 19.
City of Sunrise Mayor Michael J. Ryan, Sunrise City Manager Richard Salamon, Gregg Goodman, President of The Mills division of Simon Property Group, and Sawgrass Mills General Manager David Gott were also in attendance and assisted with the official ribbon cutting ceremony.
Gott remarked, “Our guests deserve the very best from the moment they enter our property, so we have answered their call for more parking with our new 1,700-car garage. Only at Sawgrass Mills, will you find a parking experience as unique and stylish as our mix of exclusive retailers providing an unmatched shopping experience in South Florida.”
In addition to “The Haute Spot,” the new parking complex features state-of-the-art technology, including a counting system which tracks number of open spaces, an elevated valet area, electric charging stations and air conditioned stairwells.
To celebrate the opening, Florida residents will have the opportunity to submit entries for a chance to reserve parking in “The Haute Spot” during one of the busiest shopping days of the year. Fourteen winners will be chosen at random on Nov. 4 and, in addition to a special parking reservation, will receive a $250 shopping spree, VIP butler service, free lunch at Sawgrass Mills and more.*
“The Haute Spot” is open to the public during the mall’s regular hours of operation on a first-come-first-serve basis, with the exception of Thanksgiving, Black Friday and the twelve days before Christmas (Dec.12-23) which will be reserved for contest winners.
