With the slow drip of information coming out about the American Dream Mall project over the last few months, there's been one big thing missing - an official comment from the developers.

But yesterday we got that exact thing that we've been waiting for when officials finally put their names behind a projected opening time frame.

You'll remember that earlier this year, reports were pointing to a March opening.

Then March arrived and Governor Phil Murphy said that the expected ribbon cutting has, "slipped closer to June".

Now, we're getting mixed news as, on a plus side, the project's developers are finally commenting, but on a negative side, we also now know for sure that it won't open in June.

According to NJ.com, a spokeswoman for developer Triple Five pegged "late summer" for the mega-mall to open to shoppers.

Obviously, that's not a specific date, exactly, but it's a rare on-the-record comment from the long (and I do mean long) running project's management team, so I think that we can say that this is the most realistic time target yet.

But, as I've done all along, I'll wait to believe it when I see it.
