Nation's largest mall planned for Miami

Developers are proposing to build the nation's biggest shopping mall in northwestern Miami-Dade County.

The Miami Herald reports Canadian company Triple Five wants to develop the mega mall.

Triple 5 opened the Mall of America in Minnesota in 1992 and the company says the new mall, named American Dream Miami, will be even larger.

The $4 billion entertainment and shopping complex will include an artificial ski slope, a lake with submarine rides, a water park, indoor gardens and miniature golf course, among other attractions.

The 200-acre development is expected to bring 25,000 jobs to the region.

The proposed developed still needs various approvals from local officials.
