Dadeland Mall will renovate its food court in time for the holiday season, Simon announced on Monday.

The multimillion-dollar renovation will span 19,298 square feet and include additions such as new vertical louvers, light fixtures on an existing rotunda, a skylight, and new furnishings. Restrooms will also be updated, according to a press release. Simon did not disclose how much it would spend on the upgrades.

Fast casual restaurant Thai Basil recently joined the food court in a 438-square-foot space, and Freshii will open in a 580-square-foot space later this year.

All tenants will remain open during the renovation, slated for completion in November.

Dadeland Mall, at 7535 North Kendall Drive, spans 71.2 acres and 1.4 million square feet of leasable space, according to the mall’s website. Simon Property Group owns 50 percent of the mall, which is anchored by Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, J.C. Penney and Nordstrom. In May, the mall announced new tenants and expansions including Steve Madden and Kay Jewelers. Tenants of the new terrace dining wing include Balans, Bobby’s Burger Palace and Earls Kitchen + Bar. — Katherine Kallergis
