Why is it großen? Does "Im" give weak declension in the dative case?

'im' is a contraction of 'in dem' so yes, it's dative.

Yep, I have been referring to that table. I just wasn't sure which case to apply - dative or accusative. I found this link that clarified things a bit for me: http://german.about.com/library/weekly/aa052101a.htm
