Centro, Oberhausen.

Here are a few impressions of the largest mall in Germany, called `Centro` in Oberhausen (Ruhrarea). It attracts millions of people, from Germany and the Netherlands, due to its location near The Netherlands. Often considered as the largest in Europe (?), I must say, shopping in Centro is pretty amazing.

01. Main entrance from the north:



02. Sure, this is The Coca Cola Oasis:



03. Long live Corporated America! :



04. Overview western part of the mall:



05. Outside and within walking distance, you can visit other attractions, like Cinemas (as shown), Sealife Center, Modellbahnwelt Oberhausen, or the Arena Stadium (boxing, pop concerts):



06. Finally, an overview from the nearby Gasometer, 117 meters high:


Thanx for sharing.

Many people hate the acres of parking and the distances to walk to get to one of the shops.

Malls were big here in the 50's, 60's and 70's. Finally we are becoming more like Europe ... London, Paris, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Rome - they don't need malls and don't want malls.

we need malls because it's hot here. you don't want to walk to a shop under a freakin' temperature.

West Edmonton Mall is... well... a mall. It's huge, but if you've been to one mall, you've been to WEM except WEM has a whole shit load of attractions to go to. And apparently they're going to be expanding soon... that's just what I've heard, no sources, just hearsay

Frow Wikipedia

"It is often claimed that CentrO is the largest shopping mall on the continent, but at approximately 70,000 m², it is not even the largest in the region."

Canal Walk Mall in Cape Town, South Africa is third largest in the country at 125 000m2 and currently being expanded to 144 000m2:





Sandton City (located in Sandton (Johannesburg)) is the second largest and is currently undergoing a huge overhaul with a 30 000m2 addition, bringing it to around 186 000m2, the recladding of the two existing towers on top of it and the building of the tallest building in Africa too:









Gateway Mall located in Durban is the biggest, currently at 166 000m2. It will be dethroned by Sandton City once it's done with its completion:

Activities include the world's largest in-door climbing wall, a skate park designed by Tony Hawk, I-max theatres, a Wavehouse and much more.

Zonki'Zizwe mall, which will also be located in Johannesburg, is currently under construction and will be the largest at 200 000m2 when it is completed. Another mall in Durban, part of a huge development, should it be approved, will be even larger.

Some masterplans for the Tilburg Mall. A large shopping mall in the southern part of the Netherlands with +/- 250 shops.

Quote:








Some facts;
- +/- 80.000 - 100.000 m2 shopping space
- Space for cafe's and restaurants
- Space for fashion shows, art and other cultural things
- Hotel and more
It is still unkown if the shopping mall will be built. 70% of the people living in Tilburg wants it, but many people are afraid that the city center will lose shops.
Some people say there is no need to built such a big shopping mall in the southern part of NL, they say it should be built in the Randstad.
The Randstad is the western part of the Netherlands with cities like Amsterdam, Utrecht, The Hague, Rotterdam, Haarlem and many other big cities.
