America’s Biggest Mall Preparing To Break Ground In Miami Late 2021, With Completion In 2025

A Representative of Triple Five Worldwide has revealed a construction timeline to build America’s biggest mall in Miami, according to the Herald.

Construction on American Dream Miami is expected to begin in late 2021, with completion 2025, an attorney for the project said.

A finalized design and environmental study for a highway interchange is now being worked on, with completion in spring 2020. Final design of the mall itself will be submitted to the county for review by the end of 2020.

The company expects to spend $4.5 to $5 billion on construction. It will include both retail and theme park elements, including an indoor ski slope, ice skating, aquarium, and submarine lake.

Triple Five owns Mall of the Americas and recently opened the American Dream mall in New Jersey.

More low paying jobs and more unsustainable development. Just what Miami needs.

Maybe the governor will have a $ 15.00 an hour min. Wage by then… or more, $ 20.00 an hour for Miami.

NJ had lots of construction delays on their mall. Some were for no reason.

Malls are dying nearly everywhere but South Florida. It’s because monied Latin American foreigners flock here to buy goods they can’t get at home, but how much longer will this dynamic last? Eventually they too will be able to order click and have goods delivered to their door just like us here in America.

Malls need to have a purpose instead of it being just shopping. This mall will redefine the MALL.

If we can get Tripple Five to hurry up and start construction now while roadwork is being done, yes. This would be done by 2023 or 2024 if that was the case. They don’t have to wait until the roadwork is finished just to start construction on the American Dream Mall. Come on!!!

Yet, within proximity to Manhattan and transit, so this mall is bound to fail, and if it succeeds, we’ll have two white elephants; the Dolphin Mall and Sawgrass Mills to deal with.

This is a colossal waste of money, will bring nothing but part time minimum wage jobs and will be horrific for the environment. A loser of a project all the way around except for Triple 5, who will end up building halfway and then demanding public money to finish. Their Jersey City project should be a dire warning to us all.

“will bring nothing but part time minimum wage jobs”

Do you have the ability to create even “part time minimum wage jobs?”

Shawn Kouri

Maybe not so much a waste with the mall, but the roadwork though is an even bigger waste of time. The worst is the Turnpike. The construction of the mall is all about the construction of the Turnpike. The roadwork alone is an even bigger waste of time. In fact, The roadwork is a complete waste in its own.

Agreed. This won’t open anytime soon. They will likely wait for a downturn to hit, then they will also request subsidies for site work (Street/Utility/Drainage) promising new jobs in exchange. I know it’s quite a negative stance but these large entertainment/retail/consumerist projects tend to take a long time at a huge public cost.

By that time, rich people living in even 3rd world South American countries will be able to order online and have goods delivered to their doorsteps, so why fly to Miami to buy stuff?

Once again, this project is great but really needs to have a proper transit system to get to it. Perhaps they can contribute money to a metrorail expansion

Shawn Kouri

Agreed. This mall is going to generate traffic problems here and there, even if roadwork is being done. Miami Dade county is going to need to expand its Bus fleet. And I have a good idea. You know how Walt Disney World has its own bus transportation that shuttles people from the hotel to the parks, end it has its own ride sharing program is called Mini Van? Why not do something like that for this shopping mall. Why not have the developer of this shopping mall create its own shuttle program and it can have buses going to every hotel in Miami and Broward county, pick up passengers, and take them to the megamall? Plus add Uber, Lyft, Taxi, personal cars self-driving cars, and Miami-Dade transit buses to the subject, there you go!! Problem solved!!

Oh and you know how Walt Disney World has its own collection of resort hotels, Tripple Five can do something like that.

Or how about this? What if Miami Dade College he can make the metro rail go all the way up to Aventura and then curve Northwest to Broward to make a Southwest curve back down, and then go over the Turnpike and curve again to go South and add a station for the mall. There you go!

Another mall. For that everybody call Miami the capital of the malls and consumption. Build one theatre, one museum, a university, something that will drive the city to be global and people will buy apartments to live with their families not just to spend a few weeks of the year or laundry their money.

Completion in 2025?? That’s exactly what the lawyer said before. That is way out there. Come on. They are already doing road work so wouldn’t it make sense to work on the mall while doing roadwork at the same time? At least just break ground next year in 2020 and have it opened in 2024, or at least on an accelerated schedule in 2023 for completion. I mean come on now. Come on. Is Tripple Five nuts? The approval from Miami-Dade County (5-2018) is going to expire in a year. I live just two miles away from the Megamall, which is only 10 minutes away. It’s just down the road from my house. I mean, just start construction on this mall already. Just get to working on it. You can rap-up environmental studies and start construction as you work on this mall. Just get it finished already. Let’s just get this over with, or not build it at all since it is going to cause traffic problems, problems with close by neighbors, and problems with having to expand NW. 170th, Street and make an interchange there to begin with. When really they can just change that interchange to the Palmetto 826 Expressway, or Gratney Parkway. Besides what tointerchange for the American Dream Mall is needed on the Turnpike? The Turnpike is well East of this mall. The only spots where an interchange needs to be built for the mall is I-75 and Miami Gardens Drive. Also, what sewer line needs to be put under Miami Gardens Drive for this thing? You don’t need to put in a sewer line under an urban street just for this mall. Does 170th Street cut off and end at 87th Avenue anyway? There’s no where to build an interchange there. Come on!! What is this nonsense? This doesn’t make any sense.

By the way, The first of the roadwork is about to finish in the Spring of 2020 For Your Information.

Miami is going to need more hotel rooms catcher for this thing that’s for sure because since it is going to attract 30 million visitors a year, more hotels would definitely have to be built. The nearest hotel that would hold some of the tourists going to the Megamall is the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and it’s iconic guitar shaped hotel tower which is 15 minutes away from the mall. But it may not be enough. South Florida developers need to build more hotels.

Shawn Kouri

Despite all of this, self driving cars might be a popular thing by 2025. many of such cars are staged as ride-sharing vehicles. American Dream Mall should have it’s own shuttle service from its own bus services to its own ride-hailing service if it wants to ease traffic congestion, adding Uber and Lyft to that.

Honestly, this is cool because of the entertainment options. It’ll be nice to have a rollercoaster in South Florida again. But yea, the last project was a mess so everyone should be weary. It’s also just dreadfully ugly.

You know considering how late construction is beginning on this project, I think the developer should use prefabricated modular construction for at least some of the components of the project and push up the construction groundbreaking to sometime in 2020 or earlier in 2021 with completion in 2023 or 2024.

Ha. Construction on the mall is all about the turnpike. Turnpike, Turnpike, Turnpike!! When there are some roads getting access points already at Miami Gardens Drive and soon NW. 170th, Street. So, the access from the turnpike isn’t that important right now.

Ohh yeah! I used to live in this subdivision called Century Gardens which was at one point called Shona Homes from 2006 to 2009 and this mall is LITERALLY right there! I can’t imagine what it might be like for them with the lights shining off this thing at night. They can literally see the tallest building at the new megamall right from their house and even when getting in their car. It’s like being next to Downtown where you are in your backyard or your street getting the mail and you see the 50-60 story towers right in front of you. That’s what it will be like. The Megamall is going to be literally ten minutes from my house; like, right down the street off Miami Gardens Drive.

My cousin and I would go shopping every once in a while and when this thing opens, we are going to go crazy. Literally. Even my mom. For things like an amusement park, a massive massive water park, a theme park and shopping within A shopping mall all in one, I would have to get on a plane to go to a mall like this. Now in a few years time, something like that will just be a short 10 minute car ride away. All I have to do is instead of getting on a plane and flying a good two maybe three hours and then having to plan it months in advance, I can just go anytime I want since all I have to do is just get in the car and then in like 10 to 15 minutes I am there. For something like this, for someone like me who lives in Miami, why plan a year ahead, pack a bunch of bags, get a hotel room and spend a bunch of money bu getting on a Two to four hour plane ride plus a hotel and then go to a shopping mall that has an amusement park, Waterpark, aquarium, ski slope and shopping with restaurants all in one and then plan for a couple of years after that when I can just leave stuff that I would take on a plane at home, just take my phone and my wallet and get in the car and then drive five minutes to something like that and go on weekends or after school; and then taking that money and instead of spending that on a plane and a hotel, just take that money and spend it on gas for your car, and shopping. I can totally do that.

Just say no to this sprawl inducing plan. Anyway late 2021 gives them an opportunity to keep pushing it back. Probably doesn’t happen next decade.

The ironic part is that the same people saying sprawl and not to build this out west are the same ones saying not to build on the coast due to sea water increasing and the coast under water in 30 years.

It’s good they put a dome over the fake beach, since it rains every day in the rainy season, and is hot, humid and infected with mosquitos carrying the sika virus, and dengue fever in that part of the county (not to mention the pythons, and alligators lurking near by).
