TBT (March 27, 2015) - Miami City Commissioners approved the Design District expansion which now includes the completed Paradise Plaza. Also part of the expansion was Museum Garage, which was completed May 2018.

City commissioners have given the green light to allowing expansion of the Design District further North, according to Miami Today. 

This will mean that the Design District will extend into the Buena Vista district, which is next to Little Haiti. 

Residents in the area are said to welcome the expansion.

As the Design District continues to expand with the addition of Museum Garage and Paradise Plaza, both places are equally as impressive at night. 

With colorful designs throughout Paradise Plaza such as the work of Freeland Buck, the colors pop at night with the right lighting. 

Officially opening in December 2017, more stores continue to open weekly in Paradise Plaza as the whole area is beginning to take shape compared to how it looked four years ago.
