The entertainment complex opened during a major real estate boom in Miami. Instead of being planned to revitalize a specific area as its brother properties had, Bayside complements an existing marina. The shopping center was frequently featured on the crime drama TV series, Miami Vice.
It has been reported that Felipe Juan Carlos manages and owns Bayside Marketplace.
