Miami International Mall is an enclosed shopping mall in Doral, Florida in southwestern Metropolitan Miami only half a mile away from the larger Dolphin Mall and the Miami International Airport is nearby, thus giving the mall its name. It was built by the Edward J. DeBartolo Corp. in 1983, and is currently owned and managed by Simon Property Group . It also has about 140 shops and eateries as well.

East Entrance to Miami International Mall in between JCPenney and Kohl's

From 1983 until 2000, the mall had indoor trees, five fountains to throw pennies in (one in front of each of the anchors), a children's train, and a large cascading floor level fountain in center court. The large center fountain was shut off and sat unused through most of the 90's. It was later completely removed and the circular space was used for cart vendors. In 2000, the mall underwent a huge renovation and celebrated its "Grand re-opening" in 2001 when the nearby Dolphin Mall opened, with an international theme. The renovation included removing its old features (the trees, fountains, etc.), and making it a more modern and upscale mall. This renovation was similar to that done at Dadeland Mall. Both Dadeland Mall and Miami International Mall were acquired by Simon Malls in the early 2000s.
