With a $285 million expansion, also known as Phase 1C, the megamall is now bigger than ever. The Mall of America Expansion Phase 1C extended the mall’s square footage by 883,610, adding office, retail, restaurant and hotel space.
MG McGrath Architectural Glass & Glazing worked with Mortenson Construction, DLR Group Architects, and the Mall of America Expansion project team on the interior of the mall, installing a glass elevator enclosure, along with glass at the public bathroom areas of the common areas on levels 1-3. For code compliance, the glass elevator enclosure was constructed of white frit laminated viracon safety glass with Kawneer custom brushed aluminum framing – the largest piece of glass weighing 600 pounds!
