The owners of the Bloomington megamall, Triple Five Group, say the $1.5 billion project would double the size of the mall, add hotels, a waterpark, performing arts center, officer towers and hundreds of stores. The owners have not indicated when the expansion project would begin.
It's been 20 years since Mall of America in Bloomington made its debut. The shopping and tourism destination is marking the milestone with a birthday celebration on Friday and Saturday. The mall opened to the public on August 11, 1992.
Raheem Aaron Waheed, 52, was driving a rental truck that struck a concrete-and-steel support beam Friday evening, causing the beam to fall and crush the truck's cab.Authorities said the truck was too tall for the parking ramp.
The project would be another step in the Bloomington megamall's long-planned, often-delayed expansion. Kurt Hagen is an executive with mall owner Triple Five Group. He says his group is trying to lock down the final financing arrangements.
The cast from the upcoming movie "The Hunger Games" will visit Bloomington's Mall of America next week. Cast members will sign autographs and hold a question-and-answer session for fans on Friday. Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Alexander Ludwig and Amandla Stenberg are among cast members scheduled to attend.
The news last week that Bloomingdale's is leaving Bloomington, Minn.'s Mall of America comes just after Sears' recent announcement that it was closing 25 of its "full-line" stores nationwide -- most of which are in anchor malls.
