More than a year after securing initial approvals from Miami-Dade County for what is planned to be the country’s largest mall, Triple Five Group will return to the county next month for a final OK.

A development impact committee moved the $4 billion, 3.5-million-square-foot project along at a meeting on Tuesday. From there, it will go before the county’s planning advisory board on May 7 and a final vote before the Miami-Dade County Commission on May 17, according to the Sun Sentinel.

As planned, American Dream Miami would cover at least 174 acres in unincorporated northwest Miami-Dade. The development would include a mall, theme park, 2,000 hotel rooms, a 16-story indoor ski slope, a 20-slide water park, a 14-screen 3-D movie theater, a performing arts center and more.

County officials also pushed forward an office and residential project being proposed by the Graham Companies.

In October, Triple Five paid $11 million for a 15-acre piece of the development site. Earlier that year, the firm, led by Iranian-Canadian developer Eskandar Ghermezian, secured the first approval from the county commission for a comprehensive master plan amendment for the site.
