Located at 19501 BISCAYNE BLVD the Mall sits in a prime location for major delevopment. the mall first began with just over 450 sq. ft. and in 1985 had a major renovation done and added another floor bringing the mall up to 1,500 sq. ft. The mall has 3 major department stores: Nordstrom, Sears, and Hechts. Kohls is another major box store built right across the street. In 1999 the mall began on a huge 3.8 Million dollar redevelopment and completed it in 2002. The inside was remodled and the parking lots were re-done. the huge glass dome entrance was also added. the mall is located right off the Palmetto Expressway. Future development around the mall: a new stand alone chili's, bed bath and beyond, and applebee's.
