The owner of Fort Lauderdale’s The Galleria announced plans to develop a phased project valued at more than $1 billion around the mall.

If approved, construction would start in late 2015. Project plans include 1,600 residences, 150 hotel rooms and an unspecified number of senior living apartments. The Galleria’s owner would also improve walkways around the mall property and add new landscaping, green space and bike lanes.

“This is an exciting time for The Galleria as we pursue a long-term vision, which will dramatically improve the landscape of the area and impact our ability to further attract the best retail and dining options,” Galleria general manager Mark Trouba told the Sun-Sentinel.

The mall was originally constructed in the 1950s as the open-air Sunrise Shopping Center. It was redeveloped as the enclosed Galleria in 1980. Today’s tenant roster includes Dillard’s, Macy’s and Neiman Marcus. [Sun-Sentinel]Eric Kalis
