Mall of America may have to move on over as the newest mall is coming to South Florida, American Dream Miami is intending for land near Miami Lakes, Florida bringing it to be the largest mall in the United States!
The largest mall in the U.S. is planning on being constructed on Miami's vacant land between the regions two busiest highways, Florida’s Turnpike and Interstate 75. Triple Five, the company that owns Mall of America, is backing up this larger scale mall and theme park.
Not only will the mall have hundreds of stores it will also include a water park, a Ferris wheel and an indoor domed amusement park with a roller coaster. Along with spectacles of live sea lions shows and a “lake” offering submarine rides. A skating rink and an indoor ski slope, with 800 feet of artificial powder will be anticipated. A mini golf course and indoor gardens will beautify the entire place as well as overnight hotels and condominiums!!! Can you think of anything else a mall could have?!
The mayor of Miami-Dade County, Carlos Gimenez, said “the venture promises to provide a historic boost to the county’s economy. Mall of America owner Triple Five is not asking for government dollars or free land, Gimenez said, but wants to create the kind of large-scale theme park that can attract visitors from around the world and sustain thousands of jobs across Miami-Dade. It takes a lot of logistics to keep a thing like that going. All the food, and the mechanical equipment, air-conditioning — there’s going to be a huge spin-off,” he said.
“It is our intent that this project – American Dream Miami – will exceed our other world famous projects in all respects,” Triple Five said in a statement.
The mall/theme park is planning on employing over 25,000 people during the building process and will create many everlasting jobs.
The American Dream project is on a theme of expanding prosperity and economic development!
