Over the years, Dacra has nurtured the evolution of the Miami Design District from an overlooked and stagnant neighborhood into a thriving center for commerce and creativity. Today, the Miami Design District is owned by Miami Design District Associates, which was established in 2010 as a partnership between Dacra and L Catterton Real Estate, a global real estate development and investment fund, specializing in creating luxury shopping destinations. In September 2014, General Growth Properties (GGP) purchased an interest in Miami Design District Associates.

Together the partners continue to build out and enhance this global destination by presenting the best shopping, cultural, and culinary experiences within an architecturally significant context.
