Plans Submitted for LEGOLAND Discovery Center Michigan

Posted by – Steve Cohen, Director of Community Development

The fun part of our job is that we get to be on the ground floor in the development of new projects behind the scenes.  It’s our role to help them become a reality from start to finish.  The exciting new LEGOLAND Discovery Center at Great Lakes Crossing Outlets will be no exception.

LEGOLAND Discovery Center Michigan will be the eighth to open in the U.S.

We’re pleased to report that construction drawings were submitted to the City late last week for the new indoor family attraction based on the world-famous LEGO brick.  The development announced by Merlin Entertainments Group less than a month ago will be located in the former Jeepers! space adjacent to the outlet’s food court.  It will take about one year to complete.

Building Official Jeff Spencer reviews the plans which include a LEGO-themed ride, 4-D cinema, and a "Miniland" with Metro Detroit area landmarks constructed entirely of LEGO bricks.
