Mills Corp. shares plunged to a 5 1/2 -year low yesterday after the developer said earnings restatements are likely to reduce net income by $210 million, and the cost of a New Jersey project has soared to $2 billion. Mills shares fell $6.68, or 29 percent, to $15.91. Shares of the Chevy Chase-based company, which owns Arundel Mills and other very large malls, have dropped 62 percent this year, compared with an 11 percent increase in the Bloomberg Real Estate Investment Trust Index.

And, like the Anaheim, Calif., granddaddy of theme parks, it promises hours of family entertainment and total sensory overload -- from videos to virtual games. But Ontario Mills, 40 miles east of Los Angeles, is neither theme park nor Disney creation.To its Arlington, Va.-based developers, the huge value mall represents the next generation of outlet shopping centers. The Mills Corp., which wants to build a smaller-scale version of Ontario Mills near Baltimore-Washington International Airport, has spent more than a decade inventing and fine-tuning its mall hybrid.

Nobody at Maryland's Department of Business and Economic Development could remember the last time something like this happened.
