The Mall of America is about to get bigger.

The mall in Bloomington is planning a 5.6 million-square-foot expansion as part of Phase II. The plans call for a multi-level complex, which could draw an additional 20 million visitors a year - nearly 60 percent from outside 150 miles. The increased visitors are estimated to almost double the state's economic impact to an estimated $4.3 billion.

Phase II

  • Up to 5.6 million square feet of retail, hotel and entertainment options.
  • Unique lodging options such as boutique, business, family and premium hotels.
  • 20,000-square-foot event space to host community events, celebrity appearances and more.
  • Museum-quality exhibit space.
  • The state's largest water park.
  • High level services, spas and a wellness center.
  • Fine quality restaurants and bistros.
  • Nightlife, entertainment options, and state-of-the-art movie theaters.
  • Exclusive and boutique-style retail offerings.
