Englewood’s newest project for Wisconsin-based doll retailer American Girl, the company will combine four vacant storefronts into one large 15,000 square-foot retail space for American Girl. The project, located in The Falls Mall in Miami, marks the seventh store Englewood Construction has built for American Girl.
