The bustling Buena Vista neighborhood has a new retail and dining compound. With its chic, rustic architecture and towering tropical trees, Upper Buena Vista feels just like the eco-chic beach community of Tulum in Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. Embracing the micro-retail trend, most of the boutiques are 250 square feet. Pure Soul, which has stores in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Shelter Island, N.Y., expanded its concept for resort fashions and home wares like macramé hammocks. Mayra González, who once owned a vintage store in South Beach, returns with her fabulous vintage pieces at the House of Findings. House of V, a home collection in Miami, launched its first retail shop for throw pillows, candles and home fragrances made in Grasse, France. Dining offers shaved ice with toppings, poke and coffee.
