AVENTURA, Fla., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- RCC Associates, a South Florida-based general contractor which has built more than 1,500 projects in 25 states over the course of its 39-year history, has announced its 69th construction project at the popular Aventura Mall, located in northern Miami-Dade County, Florida.

RCC recently added J. Lindeberg, Mrs. Fields, Sur La Table, Inglot, Pianegonda and Beard Papa to its list of projects for the Aventura Mall. The company's first project for the regional mall was to provide build-out construction for Maison Blanche in 1983.

South Florida's #1 shopping destination among international visitors, Aventura Mall was voted Best Local Shopping Destination by Miami Herald's "Hot List" and ranks as one of the top five highest grossing malls in the country in sales per square foot.

"Repeat construction projects at high-profile shopping destinations are a significant part of our core business," said RCC President Beverly Raphael, whose firm has provided build-out construction services for many of the nation's high-end retailers, private clubs and restaurants.

Raphael cited several other South Florida regional malls where RCC has provided repeat construction services over the years, including the Town Center in Boca Raton, The Gardens in Palm Beach Gardens, Mizner Park in Boca Raton, Worth Avenue on Palm Beach and the internationally regarded Bal Harbour Shops in Bal Harbour where a recent project for Hublot will notch more than 50 projects for RCC.
