NJ Sports Authority Approves Meadowlands Megamall

The New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority has approved the master plan for the American Dream megamall in the Meadowlands sports complex.
 
The approval at Friday's special board meeting means the long-delayed retail and entertainment project can move forward again.

  The NFL's Giants and Jets had opposed the mall being open on game days because of traffic concerns. A lawsuit by the teams against developer Triple Five and the sports authority was dismissed last year, but a judge said the teams could refile if the sports authority approves the project.
 
The teams didn't immediately comment on the board's action.
 
Once known as Xanadu, the mall project dates back 10 years. It was plagued by cost overruns and construction was stopped in 2009 because financing dried up.
