In 1907, the Jamaica Estates Company purchased 503 acres for their eponymous development. The company was composed of both political leaders and businessmen, reflecting a combination of public office and financial investment that was considered normal and acceptable at the time. Midland Malls is named after Midland Parkway, one of the many streets in the Jamaica Estates section of Queens named after locations in Great Britain. The British Midlands are so called because of their location in the middle of England.
