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.
