Burnsville Center is located in Burnsville, Minnesota. It is one of the larger enclosed malls in Minnesota with over 150 stores and approximately 1,100,000 square feet (100,000 m2). The mall opened in 1977 after Joe Rimnac sold farmland to Homart Development; however, the mall is now owned by CBL & Associates, a company which owns and operates over 100 malls throughout the United States.
The mall is also used as a transportation stop in the region, with bus service linking the mall to other destinations. Regular public transit service is provided by the MVTA. The center will to be a stop on the proposed METROOrange Linebus rapid transit service to downtown Minneapolis (another major shopping destination in the region, particularly during weekdays). The Orange Line will run along Interstate 35W which runs just east of the mall.
