It’s a big draw down south near San Diego, but now Northern California will soon have its own Legoland.

“We’re so excited about the economic impact that Legoland Discovery Center will bring to our city,” said Milpitas mayor Rich Tran. “Boys and girls in our country and around the world have grown up with Legos, and to have one of the biggest brands in the world here in Milpitas is the greatest luck one can have.”

The new Legoland Discovery Center will be located at the Great Mall in Milpitas.

Construciton has gotten underway and a formal event was held Thursday for the 31,000-square-feet space.

“It’s a great day out for families attending the mall," said Johnny Campbell, the opening director at the Legoland site. "Or for people in the need for a weekend break in the area,who want to come in and experience Lego and experience all the fun attractions we have at the site."
