It seems Chris Christie has agreed to give about $200 million to a developer to expand Xanadu. The developer, who runs the Mall of America, gets a low interest loan that they’ll pay back by keeping “most of” the sales tax. One condition is that they change the exterior.
I for one wonder how anyone thought an indoor ski slope would succeed without an indoor water park. Well, I hope it’s a big success.
Needless to say, renaming Xanadu the “American Dream@Meadowlands” is the most delicious part of the deal.
