It's very near Baclaran church where a huge crowd gathers all day long everyday and it's also near two transit lines.

One word, air conditioning.

People who apply current western urban development practices wholesale may miss out on local practicalities. There used to be some walking streets but their rents and business in general have gone down substantially. What happens here is that they build very huge malls with a lot of airconditioning so whether it's really hot outside or raining for three months straight people can shop and live. The malls here are also ussually at tranportation nexuses. The biggest ones all have subway stops with the majority of the people using mass transport rather than cars. So this model is quite different from the US concept of the suburban mall. Yes the space is made up but so far people have a preference for this climate controlled environment rather than pedestrian streets. Also these big hyper malls have a lot of people in them, on a normal busy day there's at least 400,000 people in megamall (the precursor of Mall of Asia) , it's 300,000 sq.m. leasable, on a bad day like a sale double that, 800,000 people. There are no streets with the commercial capability here, even with urban redovelopment (as has been done in Manila).

*West Edmonton Mall, Alberta, Canada: 5.3 million square feet (gross)

*"South China Mall" in Dongguan, China:~ 6-6.5 million square feet (gross) UC?

*Golden Resources Mall, Beijing, China: ~6.02 million square feet (gross)

*Berjaya Times Square, KL, Malaysia: 2 million square feet (retail space>) ~ advertised as 6.7 million square feet (built up floor area - commercial space gross - does this include retail space as well?, i think so) ---> situated in a 5.08 hectare site

*Mall of Arabia, Dubai, UAE: ~9 million square feet (gross) UC

SM Mall of Asia: 4.8 million square feet (gross floor area <building only?>, so does this mean it's reatail space only?) UC ---> situated in a 19.5 hectare site

People should make an actual list of the largest malls in the world, they are popping by the minute.

China are building large malls: Triple Five Group(owners of Mall of America, and West Edmonton) are building Mall of China and the Triple Five Wenzhou Mall which are each projected to be 10 million square feet" -2010

are these projects approved?


Correct me if I am wrong w/ these figures...so Mall of Asia is amongst the largest in the world, but not the largest. They should have kept with the orinal plan of 500,000+ square meters (5.38 million square feet - retail?).

Don't worry, soon Dubai will build a 20 million sq. ft. mall in the sky that will only be accessible by submarine, where you will arrive at an underground elevator transportation center that will lift you thousands of feet into the sky.

SM Mall of Asia opens this year, so it still would get the Biggest Mall in Asia title even if it would be for a short while...until China's bigger malls are built.

so i guess berjaya times square is not bigger thatn MOAsia?, but I already thought there was a bigger one in China already, the Golden Resources Mall in Beijing, which opened recently? I think in 2004, which is the current title holder in the world (wikipidea) @ 6 mil sq ft. Oh and I just learned that West Edmonton Mall has only 3.2 mil sq ft of retail space (so is MOAsia bigger than this?) I'm all confused now, to who is the biggest.
