Will The American Dream Come True?

The plan to open a mega-mall, complete with indoor water park and amusement park, located in northern New Jersey, may have finally received the green light.  The American Dream project would seen the completion and expansion of the partially finished Xanadu mall and entertainment center, which was a victim of the financial recession of several years ago.

The project is adjacent to the Meadowlands, home of the Giants and the Jets, and faced opposition from the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority due to concerns over making a crowded area even more so.

The American Dream would consist of a huge retail mall, with a 22 acre enclosed amusement and water park along with other attractions.  The mall's current developer is the same behind the Mall of America and the West Edmonton Mall in Canada, both of which have amusement or water parks as draws.

No timetable for work to start or a possible opening date has been mentioned, but this step is a big one - the project was announced back in May 2011.
