(EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.) – The developers of the Mall of America, the most visited mall in the world, signed a letter of intent Thursday to revitalize the Meadowlands complex.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie announced that Triple Five will work to transform the space into a successful tourism and retail destination.
"This administration fully supports the progress being made and will be a true partner at every step in transforming the Meadowlands from a financial and economic drain into a vibrant destination so that New Jerseyans can begin to reap the benefits of the job creation and much-needed tax revenues this project will provide,” said Christie. "We're glad to have Triple Five's long-term investment in New Jersey and I am confident that the developers who created the most visited mall in the world, due to their vision and innovation, will transform the Meadowlands into New Jersey's very own Mall of America.”
Triple Five will unveil its plan for the project in 2011.
