The developer of the long-awaited American Dream Meadowlands project has released a new video detailing its vision for transforming the stalled property and offering a sweeping new look at the complex’s offerings.
In a brief news release, Triple Five announced the unveiling of a new set of digital renderings and a computer-generated flyover video of the planned retail and entertainment complex in East Rutherford. The Canadian firm, which owns Minnesota’s Mall of America and the West Edmonton Mall, touted what will be a “contemporary, pristine aesthetic” that has been designed by GH+A Design Studios.
“Transforming the exterior design of the property has been an essential part of our plan for the project from the very beginning,” Don Ghermezian, president of Triple Five Worldwide, said in a prepared statement. “Our vision is to create an elegant and visually exciting façade that will showcase the exceptional retail and entertainment destinations found inside American Dream.”
Ghermezian’s firm took over the stalled project, previously known as Xanadu, in late 2010 after construction stalled under the previous developers’ financial woes. Triple Five, which plans to use billions in bond financing to complete the project, said construction is underway once again and is scheduled to be completed in fall 2018.
