Dubai Mall hands down. Reasons why:

1. 1200 retailers, shops, department stores and boutiques.

2. 160 F&B outlets

3. 1.1 million sqm total space

4. Largest and biggest indoor aquarium in the WORLD

5. Over 80 million footfall in 2013 with an estimated 100 million in 2015.

6. Facing Dubai Fountains and Burj Khalifa (tallest tower in the WORLD)

7. Close proximity to multiple major 5- and 4- star hotels (in Dubai that's a good thing)

8. Largest Gold Souq in the world.

9. (more of a bonus feature and not an absolute factor) One of the best valet car-parks in terms of exotic cars and rare sports cars (Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Rolls Royces, Maseratis) and more are constantly there. Weekly rarer cars such as Paganis, Bugattis and more park in the VIP valet.

+ Celebrities can always be spotted there from Naomi Campbell to Blake Lively, Shah RuhKhan and the Kardashians...

Flávio Conceição

Londrina



Yellow Shopping Catuaí, 1991, 82,000 m² GLA. Largest shopping mall of Southern Brazil, 9th largest of the country. It's a regional centre, quite upmarket.

Red: Royal Plaza Shopping, 1996, 9,000 m² GLA. 4 floors, built in Downtown on the busiest shop street.

Green: Londrina Norte Shopping, 2012, 31,000 m² GLA. Built by the Catuaí group, it's on the most populated region of the city, which is mainly low-middle class. Improved greatly retail in the area, bringing all sorts of national and international brands.

Blue: Boulevard Londrina Shopping, 2013, 48,000 m² GLA. Replaced an abandoned warehouse complex just outside Downtown, in a place called "Ground Zero" as the British founders built their first tent there, in the middle of the tropical jungle back in 1929. That's why the British theme is all over the mall.

Pink: Aurora Shopping (U/C), 25,000 m² GLA. Multiple floors, right in the middle of Gleba Palhano, Londrina's new upmarket district.

Cool map! I might make one for Miami.

Is Londrina just now expanding to the south?

I'd love to see similar maps for other cities. Although I'm very interested in the US metro areas, I understand nothing about their retail universe.

About Londrina, yes, the upper class neighbourhoods are expanding southwestern. We have a vertical district, just across the lake from Downtown, called Gleba Palhano, and behind Catuaí Shopping, the gated communities. Zooming off, to provide a better context:

Cambé-Londrina-Ibiporã (691,043 inh.)

I like the Dubai Mall the best, but in terms of just size alone I think the; "New Century Global Centre" in China is the winner. The Building is 500 Meters Long and over 100 Meters tall.

Hia-leah, those figures are for total area or gross leasable area (GLA)?

It's hard to find real information on that sort of stuff, I think it's safe to assume most of those are total area.

It must be total area...47 800sqm for 60 retailers seems much too big.

The 5th is still u/c. The 12th would make its mark hopefully in 2016 for expansion to make it either 2nd or 3rd. And one in China with the same mall developer could be 1st when finished.

Any updated list arranged by 'total area'

I don't think GLA cannot explain the size of mall.

Agree. Total Mall area = GLA + Floor area

Biggest Mall by total area = The Dubai Mall (1.2 million square meters)
