Triple Five Worldwide, developers of the proposed American Dream Meadowlands project in East Rutherford, NJ, have signed a Project Labor Agreement (PLA) with local Building Trades Unions in advance of the project’s final approval. The development, which is being billed as “one of the largest and most unique shopping, entertainment and tourism centers in the world,” will create thousands of construction jobs according to the American Dream website.
While litigation and bonding issues are hurdles that still must be cleared, the PLA marks a major advancement for the enormous $1.9 billion project. Developers have been granted six years to realize their American Dream though Triple Five officials suggest it could only take one third of that time.
