American Dream Miami Will Be Built In A Single Phase, Open In 2022

The American Dream Miami mall and theme park is expected to be fully completed and open to the public in 2022, a representative of the developer said yesterday, according to the Herald.

A presentation to the South Florida Regional Planning Council showed the dimensions of the project:

  • Retail – 3,500,000 square feet
  • Entertainment – 1,500,000 square feet
  • Hotel – 2,000 rooms
  • Common Area – 1,200,000 square feet

Excluding hotel, the total development size is 6.2m square feet. All will be built in a single phase.

The developers say that the retail theme park will attract 40 million visitors per year, with attraction such as an indoor ski slope, water park, skating rink, aquarium and a submarine ride.

State officials are currently reviewing the proposal, with a final county vote scheduled for May or June.

Yes!!! Once i saw that they even had a future rapid transit station for it, I knew this would be a done deal. Excited for this and can’t wait. Will be getting snow ski gears for me, the wifey and the kids.

It needs something better than a bus line if it’s really going to see 40 million visitors/year.

It was in that post of the county’s smart plan. there was a corridor/station called the American dream station where rapid transit busses where designated to route there.

How? We don’t pay state taxes. The tourists and those who go to South Beach pay.

This will bring more tourists to South Florida and is certainly an exciting investment in our community! Competition will bring out even better offerings at our other malls as well

I love the project an as fun and exciting as South Florida is we still don’t have this level of entertainment. We have expensive luxury living we have the best night life but not much family entertainment. I think this will bring family entertainment along with hopefully Miami Wilds theme park. We will no longer be known just for our night life but also a place you can come to for a nice family vacation.

A ski slope in Miami, if done right I hope it will look like the one I Dubai, if that is the case I will be there at least once a month ready with my snow board.

I am cautiously optimistic. As long as development doesn’t go west of the turnpike I think this project will bring a lot of economic stimulus to our county and city. Hoping and praying that metro station comes to fruition

This is terrible!!!! Stop developing west! stop trying to develop the everglades!!! why don’t the developers of this massive unecessary mounstrosity buy suburban homes closer to the downtown midtown area and some actual density so that our city expands sustainably and so that you can actually draw enough local traffic to prevent project from tanking!! Pay the actual price of the land dont go into the everglades trying find the cheapest deal you jerks!!

When this project was first published they made the mistake in promoting this as a MEGA-MALL, and I was totally against this. Now that we have further details about all the elements that this project brings I’m totally for it!! My only concerns are access roads, They do not look like they can handle 40 million people a year. I hope there is more than one way into this development.

Of course you’re only concerned about the ROADS…more of the backwards thinking that got us in this mess. Meanwhile the developers are focused on TRANSIT. Get with the times.

Developers are focused on transit??? that’s a first. Developers concerns begin at property line and they move inward, not the other way, but since you are confident developers of the current times are focused on transit than we are good. Pencils down everyone! Developers are here to solve our transit problems.

Says the member of a governing body the has done nothing for mass transit in decades. Your statement has the smell of irony and confliction all over it. Pencils down ? I can’t bet they are never even sharpened. Done!

Did the developers of this monstrosity get the memo that brick and mortar retail is dying? A mega mall that won’t be completed for 5 years? That will be 5 more years of momentum for ONLINE retail. Unbelievable.

This project could have a phenomenal effect on the local economy. My only concern, as has already been expressed by others, is the traffic. Most visitors will come by car. Was thinking about the most recent plans outlining the proposed mass transit extensions. Would it not make more sense running a line from Metrorail in Hialeah to the Mall, possibly utilizing the Palmetto and I-75 rights of way with an elevated rail. The Metrorail extension proposed running up 27th Ave. to the County line could be eliminated. Not sure if that extension makes sense anyway.

The mall will be only twice the size of Aventura Mall. The traffic along Biscayne Boulevard is well managed. Especially, when you consider traffic from Aventura Mall and added heavy traffic from Aventura Hospital Complex and the Village at Gulfstream Park The road improvement that are planned for the new mall at 183 Street, the Florida Turnpike, at 87/97 Avenues and at I-75 should suffice.

The planned for 27th Avenue should be top priority. HOPEFULLY, BROWARD County will build a light rail system will connect to it. Nonetheless, ridership is expected to be higher due to patrons, students, visitors and employees to miamidade college north, Nova Southeastern University, Broward College, Calder Racetrack, Miami Gardens City hall, Dolphin Stadium. Also, there are thousands of people who live in Miramar. HOLLYWOOD and other South Broward cities who work in downtown Miami.

truly awful project, very low brow, the lowest common denominator, snot nose kids, moronic families consuming cheap plastic disposable garbage at the edge of a swamp, shoving endless mouthfuls of lard and goop into their overweight and pre-diabetic failing bodies. Let the plebs feast on bread and circuses! babylon of the apocalypse! ALL PRAISE TO MAMMON!

Unfortunately this looks like a done deal. All the necessary construction happening on I75 and the Turnpike are coinciding with the needs of this development.

Building in a single phase sounds impressive until you remember the NJ one still isnt done yet. The snow birds might end up having 2 eye sores to look at

Well then, after it’s built, don’t go and stay home, I guarantee you no one will come looking for you.
