Miami International Mall


Miami International Mall

Miami International Mall is a shopping mall in Doral, Florida in western Metropolitan Miami, and so named because it is close to Miami International Airport. It has over 140 stores including anchors Macy's, Kohls, Dillard's, JC Penney and Sears. The mall is only a half-mile away from the larger outlet mall, Dolphin Mall. Some of its 100+ stores include The Limited, Express, Victoria's Secret, The Gap, RadioShack, Payless Shoesource, The Children's Place, Hollister, and Bath and Body Works. It is managed and owned by Simon Property Group.

From its opening the 1980s until 2000, the mall had indoor trees, five fountains to throw pennies in (one in front of each of the anchors), a children's train, and a large cascading floor level fountain in center court. The large center fountain was shut off and sat unused through most of the 90's. It was later completely removed and the circular space was used for cart vendors. In 2000, the mall underwent a huge renovation and celebrated its "Grand re-opening" in 2001, with an international (hence the name of the mall) theme. The renovation included removing its old features (the trees, fountains, etc.), and making it a more modern and upscale mall. This renovation was similar to that done at Dadeland Mall. Both Dadeland Mall and Miami International Mall were acquired by Simon Malls in the early 2000s. Talks are currently underway about adding a second floor to the entire mall. This project will double the malls space plus add second floor access to the anchor stores all of which already have second floors. However since the opening of Dolphin Mall directly across the street the project seems to have been put on the back burner.
