Bloomfield Hills, Mich. -- Taubman Centers said Thursday that it will begin construction this summer on its 640,000-sq.-ft. Mall of San Juan, in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Formerly known as Plaza Internacional, The Mall of San Juan will be a state-of-the-art, two-level, enclosed mall anchored by a 138,000-sq.-ft. Nordstrom and a 100,000-sq.-ft. Saks Fifth Avenue. It will be the first upscale mall on the island and the first and only location in Puerto Rico for both Nordstrom and Saks.
Taubman said the project is anticipated to include a Crowne Plaza hotel and casino, developed by the current land owner, New Century Development.
The $405 million shopping center will include more than 100 specialty stores and restaurants, approximately 60% of which are expected to be new to the island.
