Coral Square is an enclosed shopping mall in Coral Springs, Florida in central Metropolitan Miami. Like Miami International Mall, it was built by the Edward J. DeBartolo Corporation in 1983, and is currently owned and managed by Simon Property Group. The mall also has about 120 shops and eateries, located on University Drive like Westfield Broward, and named after the city like Pembroke Lakes Mall, Pompano Citi Centre, and Galleria Fort Lauderdale. It was built by the Edward J. DeBartolo Corporation like the Boynton Beach Mall for which it is similar in layout.

Anchor stores include JCPenney, two Macy's stores that were formerly Burdines and Jordan Marsh, Sears, and Kohl's, which opened in 2011 in a building that was previously occupied by Lord & Taylor, Mervyns, and Dillard's.

The mall underwent a major renovation in 1995, and again in late 2008.

On November 26, 2016 a shop owner shot and wounded an employee, then turned the gun on himself and killed himself.[3] Coral Springs Fire Department took the wounded to a nearby hospital, where they were expected to be ok. The mall was closed for the morning then reopened later in the afternoon with heavily armed Coral Springs Police Officers.
