One of the largest retail malls in the country will soon gain an additional 155,000 SF. A connector will link the King of Prussia Mall’s The Plaza and The Court sections. Over 60 new retailers will be added along with an upscale dining pavilion and an expanded parking deck. Designed by RTKL and being constructed by IMC, the expansion involved a year of preconstruction and planning to minimize the impact on the mall and its shoppers, and to allow it to stay open throughout construction. The project includes parking, roadways, and amenity upgrades that will substantially enhance the shopper experience. Construction is underway and scheduled to be complete in fall 2016.
