There are dozens of shopping centers now, but it's literally impossible to find pictures. Ethiopians for some reason hate promoting their business
If I were to open something like that, you'd best believe I'd have dozens of pictures posted on my website.

Just off the top of my head, I can immediately think of about 10 that were there even back in 2006. Imagine how many have been added since.

There's Loli Bldg that is U/c (and has been for years and years; owned by Al Amoudi which explains the endless delays).

There are lots planned though. There's the Piazza one, there's Ayat's mall, there's some other real estate developer's planned mall, etc. These are real Western-style malls.

If we're talking just shopping centers like the above, there are popping up like mushrooms continuously.

Here's one of the planned malls - Hillview Mall












Loli Building - the entire structure is already up, but the finishing is not done at all




I believe this is the mall in Piazza

The first and the last of the two have been proposed for years, since I started lurking on SSC years ago.

The first is a long-term plan of the real estate company. They'll build the houses first (which they're doing already btw), then the mall will follow.

The 3rd is an Al Amoudi project so I don't expect it to finish any time this decade. Every few months we get news coming out saying construction will start in a month, and that's been happening for years. Look at Nani bldg. It has been completed for years, and it's still closed. I don't understand

Btw, you shouldn't quote all the pics. It's pointless and slows down the loading for some of us.

Oh, okay (hillview). Where is it again? I only learned that the Nani Building wasn't open when Fortune published that article about it opening. Very odd, same with the original City Center proposal.

Sorry about the pics, will fix that. As for malls, there are few "real" malls in Addis, only Dembel strikes me as meeting my perception of one.

On another note, one thing I hate are those multiple floors of stores with outdoor balconies. They look so ugly and are so common (perhaps less so in newer buildings). Edna Mall is an example, as are these two on Bole Ave. (? I forget):

Well these have all been in Ethiopia since Haile Selassie's time, right? And don't the owners live in Ethiopia?
