Jamuna Future Park opens in January
Staff Correspondent


Jamuna Future Park, claimed to be the third largest shopping complex in the world, will be opened in January, said a company official.

‘The shopping mall is fully ready for launching and the process for renting the spaces for shops and other business started from the beginning of October,’ Alamgir Hossain, director (marketing) of Jamuna Future Park told New Age on Sunday.
He said that the shops at the Park situated in the city’s Kuril would be handed over to the tenants from November.
Alamgir said that the shopping complex would be the world’s third largest with a space of 41 lakh square feet including 16 lakh square feet shopping space.
The construction of the Park faced controversy after the Rajdhani Unnayan Kartipakkha in January of 2010 declared four floors of the complex unauthorised.
After wining a legal battle, Rajuk demolished some portion of the unauthorised floors in February of 2010 but suddenly stopped the demolition without showing any cause.
Alamgir said that Rajuk had approved their revised plan for the park taking a penalty after the park authorities appealed to a government committee, headed by the public works secretary. ‘We have now settled the dispute with Rajuk,’ he said.
The park authorities said that the buildings of the park had protection for earthquake up to 7.5 meter in Richter scale. It has 118 escalators, 34 lifts and three pair of conveyor belts.
It has seven halls with one Cineplex, large food court, indoor children park, gymnasium and health club, swimming pool for both men and women, banquet hall, large exhibition centre, two line bowling centre, large billiard zone and karaoke.

I think the owners advertised the 3rd largest slogan based on 2002 info when the construction of JFP started. In the last 10 years many new malls in China and other parts of Asia has come about.

From the wiki link it looks like JFP is still the largest Mall in South Asia by far! The next one is Phoenix Mills in Mumbai at number 16.. But more than the size, I hope there are quality international brand stores and worldclass movie theatre.

I think they will maintain international standards in all aspects and im hoping it will wash away the slight disappointment i felt by the way it looked.

And yeah it was always going to be the biggest mall in south asia but its a shame bashundhara didnt make it to the top forty

This is a Bangla article from Jugantor, the newspaper owned by Jamuna Group there are a few interesting points there. My personal favorite is how an initial idea of 5000 shops is now being turned into a few hundred and space is not being sold to everyone. Thats a good move to keep it a class apart.

excellent info there...i believe jamuna groups decision to appoint agents abroad to convince foreign brands to enter the bd market will bring great rsults.
Also i appreciate the groups plans of leasing out only large spaces and to respected brands.

the chances of them coming in is very slim

but i would expect lower end or mid range brands like zara, h&M, mango and open up shop at best

wouldnt expect affordable luxury brands like ralph lauren or abercombie to set up shop any time soon thou

That's unusual though. Young people should always be brimming with enthusiasm and optimism.

I find it surprising that the mall is only 2 months away from opening but yet no announcement from any of the global brand stores or fast food chains regarding their foray into Bangladesh market

.Does anyone know which international stores are opening up at JFP?

I would assume that KFC, Pizza Hut, BFC, Nando's, Coffee World, Movenpick would be there. Everything else probably is in the negotiation or perhaps it will be like Bashundhara City. By that I mean that those stores won't necessarily open immediately.
