Xanadu mega-mall project to shed its name

EAST RUTHERFORD - Xanadu, the mega-mall project in the Meadowlands that Gov. Chris Christie has called the ugliest building in New Jersey, will be getting a new name.

Jon Hanson, who headed a committee appointed by Christie to study the future of casinos, racetracks and Xanadu, told a gambling forum today that the project will shed its Kubla Khan-inspired name.

Hanson says he met with the developers and told them the project does not mean anything to the average New Jersey resident.

AP wire services contributed to this report.
