Canal Walk, Sandton City, Gateway, Pavilion, Eastgate, Tygervalley are those at the top of my head. I have no clue as to the size of the majority of malls in Joburg so I'll need help with those. Many of these are currently undergoing upgrades too, with a few other malls undergoing expansions that will put them in the 75 000m2 category.

Of course there are other malls under construction...not sure if any fit the super-regional category but quite a few come close.

all these malls not just add a lot of cool entertianment, promote the image of a modern city, but above all help to fight poverty, many direct and indirect jobs are created!

Take a city like Bangkok it has around 50 malls (I am just taliking about the big modern ones!!). Just imagine the amount of direct and indirect jobs!!

Urban Nigerian people are generally very fond of shopping! (an urban Nigerianman likes a lot more to go shopping than an urban German man, generally speaking...not to speak of Nigerian young women...especially Igbo girls, they virtually die for shopping)

Nigeria needs more malls!!!

Zonkizizwe is currently under construction in Midrand, Johannesburg. It will be Africa's biggest mall when complete at 200 000m2.

It's part of a theme park, casino, office park among other things.

From what I know you're correct. It won't be for long though as Sandton City will expand soon which when combined with Nelson Mandela Square will make it larger than Gateway.

Erm, no it's not...750 000m2 including all the office towers etc. yes. The actual mall is 150 000m2 which is smaller than Gateway (Gateway has 18 movie theatres, an IMAX theatre, a playhouse called the Barnyard Theatre, more than sixty restaurants, more than 300 stores, the Wave House, an arcade and theme park called Fantasy Forest, a 4000 sq. metre skate park designed by Tony Hawk, the highest indoor climbing rock in the world, a Nissan 4x4 track and a science theme park. It's 166 000m2 shopping-wise) in Durban and Sandton City in Johannesburg. A simple google search proves that.

Sandton City is currently under expansion with an 80F office tower planned. The fact that it's a part of the mall doesn't mean it's considered a physical piece of it. By that logic Century City in Cape Town would be absolutely huge due to the fact that it's surrounded by office towers.

How do you actually measure a mall? is it the actual retail space, the building including offices, number of shops or what?

Retail space. If it included offices Canal Walk would be very very massive.

im not sure about that 150,000 m2 figure, it should be more because Citystars has 3 flors underground parking, 7 floor, 750 stores and restaurants, 6000 m2 theme park, 21 cinema screens, and there is a phase 2 under construction , but the features of Gateway mall sound cool
