The Grand Canal Shoppes is a 500,000 sq ft (46,000 m2) upscale shopping mall inside The Venetian Hotel & Casino and The Palazzo on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada.

The mall was opened along with the Venetian in 1999. The mall has indoor canals, where gondolas take people around the mall. The mall is anchored by a flagship, high-fashion Barneys New York store and contains many designer and upscale boutiques. Live performances can be found throughout the mall.

As of 2008, the mall had 20 million visitors a year,[1] among the highest in the country.

History[edit]

General Growth Properties acquired the 400,000 sq ft (37,000 m2) mall from Las Vegas Sands in 2004 for $776 million.[2]

Grand Canal Shoppes opened in 1999. The place was a Venetian-styled shopping mall with 91 shops for retail, dining, and entertainment. Retail includes Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Sephora, and more. In 2005, plans were made for an expansion to add 50 more shops for retail, dining, and more theater space. Plans were approved and built in 2007. The mall was originally named "The Grand Canal Shoppes", but later was renamed "The Shoppes at the Palazzo" to give credit for the hotel which the mall is in. Now the mall has over 140 shops and eateries.

On May 16, 2013, General Growth Properties Inc. sold half its interest in the Grand Canal Shoppes, including the Shoppes at the Palazzo, in Las Vegas for net proceeds of $410 million as part of a new joint venture with TIAA-CREF. GGP will continue to manage and lease the center which has sales of $1,000 per square foot.
