‘Largest Mall In North America’ Gets Green Light From Miami-Dade Commission

May 17, 2018 No Comments by

The American Dream Miami, a gigantic $4 billion project for a retail and entertainment complex in unincorporated northwest Miami-Dade County, won two key approvals from Miami-Dade commissioners Thursday.

Commissioners first voted 11 to 1 for the Comprehensive Development Master Plan, the land-use changes needed to develop the complex. Commissioner Daniella Levine Cava was dissenting vote.

Commissioners voted to change the zoning for at least 174 acres. The area near Hialeah, Miami Gardens, Miramar and the Everglades was zoned to allow industrial use. Commissioners will be discussing the development agreement.

Canadian developer Triple Five wants the mall’s 6.2 million square feet of retail to be known as the largest mall in North America. The complex will have theme-park attractions such as a 16-story indoor ski slope and a 20-slide water park. It will also have a movie theater, a performing arts center, restaurants and 2,000 hotel rooms.

Developers claim the project will create 14,000 permanent jobs and attract 30 million visitors. Opponents’ concerns were centered on traffic, property value and cannibalizing jobs from other malls.

The developer is planning to break ground next year and open in 2023.
