Origin and brothers
The patriarch of the family, Jacob Ghermezian, (1902 – January 3, 2000) moved from Iran to Canada with his four sons in 1964. The four sons, Eskandar, Nader, Raphael and Bahman, grew the family rug business into a large real estate and construction company.
The family's estates include the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota and the West Edmonton Mall in Edmonton, Alberta. In 2011, the family's Triple Five Group acquired the troubled Xanadu Meadowlands project in New Jersey. Triple Five renamed the project American Dream Meadowlands and announced a major expansion and revamping of the under-construction mall, now expected to open in the summer of 2017.
