It's not a mall, but on a busy day the three-block main arcade at Seattle's Pike Place Market can take forever to walk down. You don't so much walk as shuffle.

Today i'd read an article about a new mall in the Pearl River Delta, in a city which name i can't remember, somewhere between Shenzhen and Guangzhou. That mall has canals like Venice and Amsterdam and was visited on one day by 600.000(!) people. Bigger malls are u/c in China and that;s the only thing i can remember of that article...

That's makes more than 360 million visitors each year, and only for shopping?

Do you have proof about those figures, because i have my doubts:

Quote:
The Mall of America (also MOA or MoA) is a shopping mall located in the Twin Cities suburb of Bloomington, Minnesota.

The mall became the largest shopping mall in terms of area in the United States when it opened in 1992. However, the mall is not and has never been the largest in the world, or the largest in the United States in terms of shopping area; four larger shopping malls have been built in China, in North America the West Edmonton Mall in Canada is larger, Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg, Illinois and King of Prussia Mall in the Philadelphia suburbs have more retail space. The Mall of America is, however, the most visited shopping mall in the world with more than 40 million visitors annually (or roughly eight times the population of the state of Minnesota).

Ayala Center averages 500,000 a day, e.g. their annual reports et al. page 6 , paragraph 2.

I think our friend sinjin refers to peak day capacity's like a weekend sale when the mall is open till midnight. At times like these 1 million is normal. Same with SM megamall which is actually larger.

As with most people and things you have to see it to believe it. ONe must remember MetroManila is not a small city and malls in the Philippines are not the same as US type malls, they're really microcities in their own right.

@Bustero: This is a 2004 report. I once read an article recently that Ayala Center (Glorietta and Greenbelt) attracts almost 1 million (so it's about 900,000+ rounded off) visitors daily.

800.000 (or according to you a million) visitors across all seven malls, quite a different isn't it?

Quote:
Shopping Centers. Fundamentals were strong in 2004. Our 7 malls (excluding our newly opened Market!Market!) averaged 94% in occupancy, among the highest rates in the industry. Daily foot traffic increased 15% at Ayala Center to over 500,000 as we expanded the elevated pedestrian walkway. We attracted over 800,000 customers a day across all our malls.

You can edit Wikipedia if you want it... But i guess that it would be known if a mall attracts 8 or 9 times the numbers of visitors of the Mall of America. Very strange that only a few seems to know that.

@909 Ayala does have Seven Malls but if you read the paragraph carefully the 500,000 does not go into 7 malls but into just Ayala Center.

Shopping Centers. Fundamentals were strong in 2004. Our 7 malls (excluding our newly opened Market!Market!) averaged 94% in occupancy, among the highest rates in the industry. Daily foot traffic increased 15% at Ayala Center to over 500,000 as we expanded the elevated pedestrian walkway. We attracted over 800,000 customers a day across all our malls.

With regards to no one having heard of it, it's not really surprising as most people do not really know of developments in other places. Many people in the US do not know much about other places as I'm sure many people in Europe , Asia, Africa do not know much about the US or other places either. The interesting part about this is that Ayala Center is actually not the largest Mall in the Philippines in terms of Daily Foot traffic, it's Megamall, which is actually larger.

@909: The Philippines' malls are generally crowded. Even the very small malls get at least 20,000 daily shopper crowd. The Filipinos' shopping attitude is uniquely different.

Here are the 2005 reports (to clarify with Bustero's post)
Ayala Center (300,000 square meters) 1,000,000 average daily
Araneta Center (300,000 square meters) 900,000 average daily
SM Megamall (331,000 square meters) 550,000 average daily
SM North EDSA (325,000 square meters) 300,000 average daily
Ayala Center Cebu (100,000 square meters) 150,000 average daily
Metro Gaisano Colon (7,000 square meters) 20,000 average daily
^See?

And if you said that you did not hear Ayala Center there, we too, honestly, did not hear any Mall of America here. Peace.
