Sawgrass Mills To Be Renovated & Expanded, Including New Primark

Sawgrass Mills, which is America’s biggest outlet mall and among the biggest malls and tourist destinations in America, will be undergoing a renovation.

The entirety of the original shopping center common area will be remodeled by late 2020, in time for the mall’s 30th anniversary.

“Sawgrass Mills has evolved into a renowned global shopping destination,” said David Gott, Sawgrass Mills General Manager. “The center has gone through six expansions and brought a long list of retail, dining and entertainment firsts to the market in its 30 years. We are excited to embark on the property’s largest renovation to date in our mission to deliver an unparalleled shopping experience.”

Floors will be replaced with porcelain tile accented by marble and stone, with new seating and tables, LED light fixtures and open skylight designs.

Food courts will instead be rebranded as food halls, with new dining options added.

New entrances will feature colorized glass, decorative metal panels, and permanent canopies, along with new landscaping and improved lighting and signage.

A new retailer is also being added. Primark, a European brand known for dirt cheap clothing, will open at Sawgrass in the summer of 2020.

A hotel is also planned to be built on site. AC Hotel by Marriott – Sawgrass Mills will include 174 rooms, with work set to begin this spring. Opening is expected in fall of 2020.

I’ve been to Primark across the pond. Even with online shopping, it does very well. It’s like J.C. Penney if they successfully adapted to Forever 21 and H&M. In fact, it would be a great replacement for all the Sears locations closed/ing down. Until then, I’ll pass on Sawgrass.

Is it really being expanded? I didn’t see expansion in the article. I suspect the Primark is replacing a current retailer rather than the mall actually expanding.

Yep. Looked at the original article on May 13th in the South Florida Business journal. Everything in this article seems to be verbatim from that article. No expansion—just major renovation.

All these shitty malls in So Fla. Sawgrass Parkway Mall, Wasteland Mall, Shops at AfterSchool Daycare Place, etc… People wanna shop in the center of the city, or by clicking a button on Amazon… not going out to these boring exurbs to shop.

If you couldn’t find parking, that means you didn’t go in.. so it appears to be a very successful place no matter how much you say it “sucks.”

Parking is a nightmare. Long distances to walk in sweltering heat. Unsafe parking, no security in sight. It looks like one huge afterthought.

this mall was supposed to have the indoor skiiing next to their new metropica towers but the company decided to wait because of a super fake imaginary mega mall that doesnt exist and probably never will. Thats a land grab.
