‘Full Speed Ahead’ For American Dream Miami Mall, Indoor Skiing Soon

America’s biggest mall continues to move towards the start of construction in Miami.

American Dream Miami is moving “full speed ahead,” a lobbyist and lawyer for developer Triple Five told the Herald. That includes the indoor skiing portion, he added.

Bids are due later this month for a state contract to extend the Turnpike, adding capacity. The county is also moving forward with a sewage project to the site.

A site plan still hasn’t been submitted to the county, but experts say a project of this magnitude takes time to design.

In total, the project will include 7.2 million square feet with towers as tall as 50 stories. It will include retail, restaurants, the world’s largest indoor ski slope, a walk-through aquarium, a skating rink, an ice-climbing wall, live theater venues for Russian ballet and Chinese acrobats and 2,000 hotel rooms.

In New York, the developer is also building American Dream Meadowlands. That project is near 85 percent completion, with opening set for September.

I’m thinking this should be less mall and more amusement park type attractions like some simulation rides to with the other entertainment offerings. South Florida already has malls up the @$$.

I still don’t believe this thing is getting built any time soon. Look at how long the one in NYC has taken.

The County and State need to improve traffic here. If it actually is a realty get the Metrorail up there. Even if it does not go, NW Dade and Miami Lakes could use a station.

I am fearful this will be a large empty building one day. I think people are right it needs to be a lot about entertainment and not so much about malls. We have enough malls.

And you know this, how?? Growth happens whether you like it or not. Now it is time to put your big boy/girl pants and accept it or move to a more secluded place.

If this is actually built and successful, the only good thing is it will kill Sawgrass Mills and the Dolphin Mall. I hate those places.

I don’t like them either but I wouldn’t wish death on them. But I just don’t go. They are both economic drivers for the region.
