I'm not sure if it will be one of the biggest malls in the world or anything, but I saw a fairly large mall under construction in suburban Shanghai that looked like a near-replica of the USA's Pentagon military complex! Crazy!!

The Galleria was developed by Gerald Hines in 1970. Modeled after the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan, it originally had 600,000 ft² (56,000 m²) of retail space. The first expansion, called Galleria II and completed in 1976, added 360,000 ft² (33,000 m²) of retail space on two levels. Later added was the Galleria III (completed 1986), followed by the newest and biggest expansion (Galleria IV) completed in March 2003. This expansion added 2 department stores, a Nordstrom and flagship Foley's, as well as about 70 other stores, increasing the area to 2.4 million ft² (220,000 m²). Another 100,000 ft² (9,300 m²) of retail space, vacated by Lord & Taylor in 2005, is expected to be renovated by April 2006. Federated Department Stores plans to close the current Macy's store once its takeover of May Department Stores becomes final in 2006 and Foley's is renamed to Macy's. [1] A plan is being considered to convert the Macy's space into apartments.[2]

The Galleria is now the fifth-largest shopping complex in the United States, and considered to be one of the most prestigious malls in the country.Houston Galleria

Largest Shopping Malls in the World

I decided to start a thread on the world's largest shopping malls since there could be many shopping malls that have at least 2,000,000 sq ft of retail space. The largest shopping mall is the largely vacant South china Mall. There are two under-construction malls in Dubai that could surpass its size soon.

I heard theres a new one in Beijing too thats now the worlds second largest, the Golden Resources Mall.

rentable space

1. South China Mall, Dongguan 7.1 million sq. feet
2. SM Golden Resources Mall, Beijing 6 million sq. feet
3. Mall of Asia, Pasay City, Philippines 4.2 million sq. feet
4. Cevahir Istanbul, 3.8 million sq. feet
5. West Edmonton Mall, Edmonton, Canada 3.8 million sq. feet
6. SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City, Philippines, 3.6 million sq. feet
7. Berjaya Times Square, Kuala Lumpar, Malaysia 3.4 million sq. feet
8. Beijing Mall, 3.4 million sq. feet
9. Zhenjia Mall, Guangzhou, 3 million sq. feet
10. SM City North Esda, Quezon City, Philippines, 3 million sq. feet

Almost all these malls take advantage of the weather in places where its too hot/ too cold to shop normally (eg Canada, Southern China, Philippines).

Golden Resources Mall:





Golden Resources Shopping Mall, or Jin Yuan is a shopping mall located near the Fourth Ring Road in Beijing, People's Republic of China.

In English, the mall has earned the nickname Great Mall of China, owing to its total area of 7.3 million square feet (680,000 square metres) over six floors. At 1.5 times the size of the Mall of America, Golden Resources Mall was the world's largest shopping mall from 2004 to 2005.[1][2]

The mall was completed on 20 October 2004 after 20 months of construction and opened four days later.

Although the developer of the mall initially estimated that the mall would have 50,000 shoppers a day, as of 2004 the actual number was far smaller, as few as 20 in an hour. One problem was that prices of most items sold were far beyond the purchasing ability of most ordinary Chinese. Another barrier was the inaccessibility of Golden Resources Shopping Mall to foreign consumers because of what Forbes magazine calls "a tough location outside the heart of the city."

In 2005, Golden Resources Shopping Mall became the world's second-largest mall when South China Mall in Dongguan was completed. It was still in second place as of late 2006.

Should there be any proposed shopping malls that may be over 2,000,000 square feet in area? I know the Mall of Arabia in Dubai is one of them. We'll find out later.

Im kinda gald malls arent catching on that well in China. All that famous, vibrant traditional streetlife of the cities would be sucked away. I can understand their popularity in hot and humid countries, as well as freezing ones though.
