How Long Does it Take to Build a Mall?

The American Dream mall in the New Jersey Meadowlands has been at least 18 years in the making, passing from developer to developer, having billions of dollars thrown at it and still no hard opening date in sight. This week, a New Jersey Local Finance Board gave the green light to use $800 million in high-risk bonds to help the current developer, the Triple Five Group, finish the project by mid-2018. The hope is that this time will be the charm, but history shows that nothing is certain when it comes to this particular development.
