Just a few days after demolition of the former John Wanamaker store at the Plaza began and the announcement about the construction of a new two-story addition to take its place; the King of Prussia Mall has announced an even larger project that will finally connect both malls. 40 more stores will be added when the malls are finally joined. The Wanamaker project is adding 10 more stores.
The Plaza with its 1.7 million square-feet will be combined with the Court’s 900,000+ square-feet. With the additions (200,000+ square-feet) there will be nearly 3 million square-feet of space. The King of Prussia Mall is the largest mall in the United States in terms of leasable retail space.
The latest project is subject to approval by local government. I would be beyond shocked if that didn’t happen!
