Walters Builds Excitement with American Dream

On Thursday July 20th, Walters staff enjoyed a visit from PCL, our client, and Triple Five Worldwide, the owner of American Dream™. Their visit included a tour of our facilities and a presentation from both parties that brought the massive scope of this incredible project to life for our employees. It was inspiring to meet the people behind the project and see their excitement for the project, and for working with Walters.

“We want to thank all of Walters for being a key subcontractor and partner on this prestigious project.” shared David Campbell, Project Manager, PCL Construction Services. “Both PCL and Triple Five truly appreciate the sacrifices and patience that Walters has demonstrated to help this milestone program.”

For over thirty years, Triple Five Worldwide has owned and managed the world’s first and second largest tourism, retail and entertainment complexes; the world-renowned West Edmonton Mall in Canada and Mall of America® in the United States. Building upon these successes and their experience and expertise, Triple Five is now creating American Dream™ to be its premier flagship location – a world class retail and entertainment destination in New Jersey, just nine miles from New York City.

“We are very pleased to partner with Walters Inc. who is also a family run Canadian business to complete this premier property.” shared Gary Hanson, VP Development, Triple Five Worldwide Organization on behalf of the Ghermezian Family. “Walters is an integral part of the American Dream and we couldn’t do this without you. We thank you all for your help regarding the process of getting this project back on track. This is a world class project with world class partners.”

Walters staff was blown away by a video of the rollercoaster that Triple Five has purchased for the park. This amusement park will now have the steepest rollercoaster in the world – with an angle of 122°. If you have the stomach for it, and want to see the video, click below.

We are extremely delighted to be a part of this tremendous project and look forward to assisting PCL and Triple Five Worldwide in showcasing the American Dream™ to the world.
