Fodor's Expert Review Rosemary Square
The 72-acre, four-block-by-four-block commercial and residential complex centered on Rosemary Avenue has been revamped from CityPlace into Rosemary Square, with $550 million in upgrades to the pedestrian walkways, plus new retail, dining and public art installations. The mixed-use neighborhood will soon feature luxury apartments and office space, and it still attracts people of all ages to restaurants like Italian-inspired Il Bellagio, a 20-screen AMC theater, live music at Copper Blues, the Harriet Himmel Theater, and the Improv Comedy Club. In the courtyard, Berlin-based artist Jeppe Hein has created a whimsical water pavilion, and live bands perform on weekends. The dining, shopping, and entertainment are all family-friendly; at night, however, a lively crowd likes to hit the outdoor bars. Among Rosemary Square's stores are such popular national retailers as H&M, Tommy Bahama, and Restoration Hardware. Anushka Spa and Salon draws locals and visitors.
