EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — The developer of a massive New Jersey megamall has signed a union agreement to jumpstart work on the long-delayed project.
Triple Five and the Bergen County Building & Construction Trades Council signed the deal Monday in East Rutherford. The American Dream shopping and entertainment complex is projected to create 9,000 to 10,000 new jobs and be finished in late 2016.
“This is going to include an enclosed amusement park, an indoor water park, performing arts theater and the only indoor ski facility in New Jersey,” Gov. Chris Christie told reporters, including WCBS 880’s Ginny Kosola, at Monday’s announcement.
