      Suburban Detroit mall announces plans for aquarium

      Great Lakes Crossing Outlets in Auburn Hills announced plans for an aquarium in the spring of 2015.

      A shopping mall in suburban Detroit is expected to be the site of an aquarium in the spring of 2015.

      The Oakland Press of Pontiac reports that Great Lakes Crossing Outlets in Auburn Hills announced plans for the attraction on Monday.

      Plans call for more than 30 displays of diverse marine life at the 35,000-square-foot aquarium from a company called Sea Life. A tropical ocean tank with a walk-through underwater tunnel is planned along with displays of Great Lakes marine creatures.

      Michigan has a number of aquariums, including one on Detroit's Belle Isle that was closed for years before it reopened with limited hours.
