A 4-layer 12,000 lb. exterior glass star is a striking 3 dimensional representation of the new updated Mall of America iconic star logo. The 3/4” thick laminated colored glass sections all match the MOA brand standards and include white LED lighting. Built of a stainless steel frame with hidden access panels in the 1” thick stainless steel legs, it is anchored to a concrete slab base and stands over 16 feet high and 16 feet wide. It also incorporates a sensor activated heat trace to melt any snow or ice immediately. Mall of America is currently undergoing an 750,000 square foot expansion with the addition of specialty retailers, dining experience, office tower, luxury hotel and a grand entrance. Surrounded by landscaping and the VIP valet driveway, the star is a dynamic feature centerpiece to this grand entrance.
