Here’s a look at the floor plan for American Dream Miami, the mega-mall in development at the intersection of Interstate 75 and the Florida Turnpike in northwest Miami-Dade County.
Shoppers had best wear shoes with thick tread because this thing is going to be huge.
The 6.2-million-square-foot mall, under development by the Triple Five Group, would be the largest in North America with 3.5 million square feet of retail stores, 2,000 hotel rooms, a 370,000-square-foot theme park, 370,000-square-foot water park, a 200,000-square-foot indoor ski slope, movie theaters, a sports center, outdoor fishing center, miniature golf course, live entertainment venue, plus attractions the developer is calling Submarine Lake, Art Deco Village and Tivoli Garden.
The mall would be anchored by five two-story retail stores.
Transportation planners are comparing the mall’s likely impact to theme parks such as Disney World, while retail consultants predict the project will draw shoppers away from other area malls, including Sawgrass Mills in Sunrise, the Business Journal report said.
