Mall of America (also MOA, MoA, the Megamall) is a super-regional shopping mall located in the Twin Cities suburb of Bloomington, Minnesota, USA. The mall is located southeast of the junction of Interstate 494 and Minnesota State Highway 77, north of the Minnesota River and is across the interstate from the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. It is the third largest mall in North America, after the West Edmonton Mall, in Edmonton, Canada, and the King of Prussia Mall in King of Prussia, PA. In the United States, it is the second largest mall in terms of retail space. Opened in 1992, the mall received 40 million visitors in 2006.[2] Triple Five Group, owned by Canada's Ghermezian family, owns and manages the Mall of America, as well as the West Edmonton Mall.

Design

Mall of America has a gross area of 4,200,000 sq ft (390,000 m2), enough to fit seven Yankee stadiums inside of it[citation needed], with 2,500,000 sq ft (232,000 m2) available as retail space.[3] The mall is a nearly symmetric building, with a roughly rectangular floor plan. Over 520 stores are arranged along three levels of pedestrian walkways on the sides of the rectangle, with a fourth level on the East side. An addition planned north of the mall will allow for up to 900 stores, but this has been put on hold due to the economy.[citation needed] Four "anchor" department stores are located at the corners. The Mall is organized into four different zones, each with its own decorative style.
