The Largest Mall in America could be coming to the Miami-Dade area
The West Edmonton Mall in Canada is currently the largest mall in North America. But that could all change soon if Triple Five, the company that owns the mall gets to build its newly proposed mall in the Miami-Dade area.
The new complex would be called the American Dream Miami and would feature several shopping and entertainment venues including:
- Upscale arts and entertainment, including night life
- A performing arts center
- A luxury theater with 16 screens with high-back rocker seats, including a 148-seat VIP theater with full service concession with beer and wine.
- An indoor and outdoor amusement park, including Legoland and theme park rides.
- The world’s largest indoor ski slope.
- An indoor waterpark with large slides and a simulated beach.
- A skating rink featuring ice ballet, figure skating and hockey.
- A sea lion show.
- An Art Deco village with restaurants, live theater and a Tivoli garden.
- A submarine ride and aquarium with a live reef on a 7-acre lake.
- A huge ferris wheel so tall that riders could see the ocean.
- Bowling and billiard center.
- Miniature golf.
- Water ballet fountains, like seen outside Las Vegas casinos.
- A museum.
- A host of retailers, with a focus on fashion.
- A hotel and luxury condominium tower.
The proposed complex would be located on a vacant plot of land at the intersection of Interstate 75 and the Florida Turnpike near Miami Gardens Drive.
We intend to capture the very best elements of West Edmonton Mall, Mall of America and American Dream,” Triple Five said. “Like our other properties, American Dream – Miami will generate tens of thousands of jobs and have an annual economic impact for the State of Florida in the billions.”
Triple Five also currently owns the Mall of America in Minnesota and is also developing the American Dream Mall in New Jersey.
In order for this gigantic project to begin construction, the company would have to purchase land from Graham Cos. and the state.
