H&M It seems the Swedes are big fans. The Stockholm-headquartered clothier opened a 55,000-square-foot store at the Forum Shops in 2010, the largest at the time. (The Big Apple now carries the title, with a 57,000-square-foot location.)

Forever 21 The LA-based retailer’s 126,000-square-foot store at Fashion Show Mall has been bested in size since 2010, thanks to larger stores opening in California and elsewhere.

High Roller If you’ve been living under a rock, you might not know that Caesars’ “observation” wheel stands 550 feet tall, making it the largest non-Ferris Ferris wheel in the world—for now. Plans for wheels in New York City and Dubai in the next couple of years have been reported—and both will eclipse the Linq’s anchor attraction.
