^That's a big "if", based on our Great Recession and the fact they want the Bloomington residents to subsidize it, it may not ever happen. That would be a shame though, since it's the only mall in the country I can think of that could add 5 million SF and actually fill it up!

My favorite is Oakbrook Center in the Chicago area. I LOVE that mall. I've been to the MOA many times, and Woodfield as well, but IMO, they can't compete with Oakbrook.

I have my favorites throughout the country.

California

South Coast Plaza (Orange County)
Fashion Valley Mall (San Diego)

Texas

The Galleria (Houston)
Northpark (Dallas) - One of the most stunning, impressive malls I've been to from an architectural standpoint

Florida

Mall at Millenia (Orlando)
Aventura Mall (Miami)
Sawgrass Mills (Sunrise/Ft. Lauderdale)


Georgia

Mall of Georgia
Perimeter Mall

I find Lenox to be nice, but highly overrated

Virginia

Tysons Corner Center (DC Area)

MOA will soon be king again, once the expansion starts.
They are builing a mixed use complex right next to KOP mall with 4,000 residential units and a million sq ft of commercial with 1.4 million sq ft of additional retail - ugh more suburban ugliness

Green Acres Mall (#18)


*Green Acres really surprised me because, it was always big but I didn't know it ranked near the top, I always saw it as "the mall" that's 3 miles away, I'd count it as an "almost Mega Mall"*

There's also:
The Walt Whitman Mall
Queens Center Mall (among the top grossing in the U.S., I'd count it as an "almost Mega Mall")
The Source Mall
The Short Hills Mall (among the top grossing in the U.S.)
Kings Plaza
The Manhattan Mall
The Staten Island Mall
The South Shore Mall
The Sunrise Mall
Atlas Park
I could keep going but I think people get the idea...
I've been to the ones in blue. The First 3 are phenomenal malls imo. I also like the malls around Orlando, maybe I'm just a fan of newer things lol. Texas and the Southwest have great malls too.

we have similar travel experiences and shopping tastes...i have been to each one listed except the one in Orlando and I agree they're my faves too...
the Dallas Northpark is a very timeless yet interesting and uniquely designed mall, one of the few malls I've ever reached for a camera.

I also remember well the Mall of Georgia, for whatever reason I remember it for a very pleasant shopping experience

Also I like Flatiron Crossing in Denver- that is a great mall with some nice structural details too

I've been to Mall of America in MN also, but that was actually nothin special to me

This spring, Syracuse's Carousel Center is going to almost double in size and become DestiNY USA. That should be exciting for about a week.

Some people call the new addition The Museum and Correctional Facility.

Two of the 5 are in the Miami MSA and boy do the European and South American tourists keep them busy.
