For the very first time in the sprawling history of the American Dream Mall project, a specific opening date has been named.

It's no longer summer-ish or sometime in the fall, but a specific date has been singled out as the day that the mall will open.

Mark your calendars, the mall's developer, Triple Five, says that American Dream will open on October 25th, 2019.

If you've crossed paths with just about anything New Jersey related in the past decade and a half, you've certainly heard about the American Dream Mall (formerly "Xanadu").

The on-again, off-again, will it or won't it saga stretches back well into the early-2000s, with no fewer than three opening time frames coming and going in 2019 alone.

The announcement that was reported by NJ.com is somewhat short on specifics, with the developers saying that:

“Over the coming weeks, American Dream will be providing further insights to the property, its attractions, tenants and the exciting plans and events surrounding the opening and beyond,”

October 25th is 114 days from the time of this writing, so they've got about 3 1/2 months between now and the stated ribbon-cutting.

We'll keep you updated as more info comes out and as the opening approaches. In the meantime, you can read our previous coverage of the American Dream project by clicking here.
