King of Prussia, PA — Simon Property Group, Inc. plans to unify the two main shopping venues of King of Prussia Mall, expanding one of America’s most productive and iconic retail destinations.

The project will entail an enclosed multi-level expansion connecting the 1.68 million-square-foot Plaza, and the 902,000-square-foot court. The 140,000-square-foot expansion will include approximately 40 new retailers, several restaurants, an upscale dining pavilion and customer lounge. The timing of the project coincides with the upcoming 50th anniversary of the center.

“Within weeks of increasing its ownership and assuming control of the operations of the King of Prussia Mall, Simon presented their unique vision for the property and we’re excited to work with them on making it a reality,” says Robert Loeper, Upper Merion Township Planner.

Already underway is a major redevelopment of the center that will convert the former Strawbridge’s building into a home for 10 new retailers in a two-story, 100,000-square-foot space. This redevelopment is set to debut in time for next year’s holiday season.

New stores to open at King of Prussia Mall in 2011 have included: L.L. Bean, Love Culture, lululemon athletica, LUSH, Mammoth, Swim ‘n Sport, True Religion Brand Jeans, Vera Bradley, and Wolford Boutique.

King of Prussia Mall, 96% owned and managed by Simon Property Group, features seven department stores and more than 400 retailers and 40 restaurants. For more information, visit or
