Mall of America expansion
The subsidy value came from: Tom Webb, "Mall of America hopes tax break jump-starts $1.5B expansion," St. Paul Pioneer-Press, May 20, 2013.
After years of trying, Triple Five finally got the Minnesota legislature to approve a large subsidy for its planned $1.5 billion expansion of the giant mall. The $250 million was to pay for infrastructure improvements in and around the mall. There were controversy over the fact that the funds were coming from a program designed to discourage cities and towns from using subsidies to compete against one another for investment. Overlaps with main Subsidy Tracker data: none.
