Now there's more. At the time of the first articles "so far the postings have only been seen on Craigslist"

Nope, but my first guess would be Topgolf, although the sources on SSC say that site was passed over.

Bold choice to continue making big investments in golf like that.

What exactly is a golf entertainment center? Does it have indoor facilities where people can practice their golf swing, and play virtual golf? Not trying to sound sarcastic or rude, I'm honestly just curious.

I would assume an indoor driving range, golf simulators, putting green and sand traps. Would probably include full bar and food. I would go to this every single time my wife wanted to go to the MOA. Basically, I would be a regular customer.

I could have sworn the mall was going to be starting a renovation of, West market. I have searched all over the Internet but can't find anything about it. Anyone have any info?

West Market was the 3rd section that they renovated. Went from green Victorian train station to a very bright white cathedral of commerce. While I miss the old look, I really like the bright and airy feel of the renovated area. Other than the old Bloomingdale's corner. the courtyards in from of the main anchors have not been redone. Not sure if they will be done to be honest. Maybe someone on here knows why not or when that might happen.

1- East side
2- South side
3-West side
4 North side, which is just finishing up on their work and the addition of the new north extension for phase two.

Was at the mall of America today, I can't believe they're going to be starting on the next phase, possibly the spring. The recently opened phase, except for the food court on the third floor, doesn't have any stores in it yet. I must say, I do like the large windows on the new north end.

I think I'd trust the MOA owners to know their business best. They have been very clear with the intents of this new wing - and the slow expansion into it. This wasn't ever planned to be full from the opening. Likewise - the future expansion plans, which wouldn't be complete for 2 1/2 years, give them time to fill this new section, all while courting new tenants. It's very precise and methodical, I have no doubts about that.

Is there risk, of course! But seeing that MOA has one of the lowest vacancy rates of any mall in the Metro, I don't foresee any problems long term.

That is right where they want the restaurant corridor, correct?

Apparently my mom drank there with the Northstars back in the 70s when they played there.

A new immersive video ride called Flyover America has opened at the south end of Nickelodeon Universe. Looks like it's a small OmniMAX/IMAX Dome with just one row of seating, but with the seats suspended in the air during the "flight". Some misting devices and smell-o-vision are also included.

It's a copy of something, but I'm not sure what -- it could be that. One of my old classmates on posted a link about it on her husband's Facebook page and said "Your favorite ride has come here!"

That is kind of like the mystery mine ride that used to be right about there.

OMG I totally forgot about the mystery mine! I LOVED that ride. This one looks cool as well, too bad it's nearly 20 bucks

I just found out that Wetzel's Pretzels is now at the mall, but I'm not sure where it is. It's only their 2nd location in the state(Mankato was first).
Buildings, what buildings?
