Maybe India's not not Asia's.

Kuala Lumpur's Berjaya Times Square is bigger at 4.5 million sq. ft.

and under construction right now is 4.9 million sq ft Mall of Asia in Manila which will open this December.

SM Megamall in Manila is also 3.55 million sq ft. (opened in 1990's).
Glorietta in Manila is 3.22 million sq ft.

and another one under construction is Mall of China which is a lot bigger, around 6 million sq ft.

Oh I thought so because this mall was in News overhere in London on ITV news and they said that asia's largest mall is u/c in india. Even on the website it used to say before asiaslargest mall but now it only says india. Anyway 3.5 million sqft is still a lot.

Pretty cool. This project shows that India's purchasing power has been shooting up like hell over the past decade.

The consumption power of India is definitely heating up. Is it like a Western mall with department store/hypermarket anchors, or will it be just a collection of smaller stores?

On the contrary, this one has progressed real fast. They only announced it towards the end of last year, and construction started around spring this year. Since in India, we can't due to obvious constraints, use prefab materials, the construction time is longer than say in the US or Europe. Everything is sort of done on the site....

I am going to Delhi in December and I hope to comeback with a progress report.

It doesn't matter whether its small stores or giant ones, because in a mall, airconditioning and lighting and ventilation are dependant on the total size of the constrution. That's the difference between a mall and a shopping arcade. In a mall, every measure is centralised to the T!

It has nothing to do with anything that is "prefab". Look at the pictures, there's nobody there, no equipment, no scaffolding, no materials, no nothing. Just a concrete shell. Obviously, when the pictures were taken, construction had been halted.

It has smaller stores but also anchors. I think this mall has a Debenhams and Piramyd store as large anchors.

Cool, I was just curious.

It's strange Debenhams, a mid-level department store in Britain is overseas, in places like Riyadh and Delhi. I checked, and they have franchised stores in Bahrain, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dubai, Iceland, Indonesia, Kuwait, Malaysia, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sharjah, and Sweden, with plans to open in Indonesia too!

You are right, both Dabenham and H & M of Sweden, are trashy stores. But outside their respective countries, they somehow get respect. It's the same with IKEA- people laugh at it here in Sweden, but somehow it's very attractive to the outsiders.
