Dolphin Mall is a shopping mall north of Sweetwater, Florida and west of Doral and Miami.[1] There are over 240 retail outlets and name-brand discounters as anchors.

The mall opened in 2001,[2] the first of four Taubman Centers malls to open that year. (The others are: The Shops at Willow Bend north of Dallas, Texas, International Plaza and Bay Street in Tampa, and The Mall at Wellington Green in Wellington in Palm Beach County.)

The mall is built like the "Mills" outlet malls owned by Simon Property Group, which include South Florida's largest outlet mall and Dolphin's main competitor, Sawgrass Mills, and similar to Taubman's other outlet mall, Great Lakes Crossing. However, the mall is divided into three districts: Playa (Beach), Ramblas (Boulevards), and Moda (Fashion), and has nine zones.

With 1,400,000 square feet (130,000 m2) of retail selling space, it is the second-largest mall in Miami-Dade County. Being near Florida International University, it is a popular hang-out place for students.

A few years prior when the mall was first planned, Dolphin Mall was to have over 2,200,000 sq ft (200,000 m2), a roller coaster, a 28-screen Regal Cinemas, and over 300 shops. Once Taubman Centers owned property rights in 2000, the center was downsized to its current 1,400,000 sq ft (130,000 m2), no roller coaster, and a 19-screen Cobb Theaters in the second level in the "Ramblas" Zone.
