I think for North America, it's the West Edmonton mall in Edmonton Alberta. In the US, I think it is the MAll of America in Bloomington Minn. just south of Minneapolis. Don't know about the other Continents.

the world famous architect Fuksas projected the center, was opened in 2006.


2) Roma Est will be opened the 31th march, it will host the first italian Apple Store, that is also the first Apple Store in Continental Europe!

main data:
* 136.000 mq surface
* 120.000 mq covered surface
* 13.000 mq main supermarket
* 220 shops
* 5 levels
* Warner Village Complex
* 7000 car parkings

soon I will post some photos, ti is really beautiful.

3) BARIBLU Mall, near Bari(South-East Italy)

main data:
* 150.000 mq surface
* 44.000 mq covered surface
* 5.500 mq main supermarket
* 120 shops
* 2 levels
* 10.200 mq Cinema surface
* 3000 car parkings





In Italy, maybe, there are not the biggest malls in Europe, but surely they are not mere blocks or artificial, false small cities! usually are well projected by famous architect...

The Gateshead Metrocentre is horrible. The new extension is nice, but the train station outside is still run down as is the majority of the centre. It's full of chavs too

I'd much rather go shopping on Grey st.

The World's Largest Malls

1. South China Mall

Location: Dongguan, China

Year Opened: 2005

Gross Leasable Area: 7.1 million square feet

In the Chinese mall arms race, this facility opened a year after the Golden Resources Mall to displace it as the country's and the world's largest. The space includes wind mills and theme parks, plus a replica of the Arc de Triomphe.

2. Golden Resources Shopping Mall

Location: Beijing, China

Year Opened: 2004

Gross Leasable Area: 6 million square feet

Not sprawling, this is a stacked-up five-story mall. Approximately 1,000 stores, selling plenty of familiar global brands like Nike and DKNY. A truly ambitious real estate project, with new apartments and offices, surround the mall. A tough location outside the heart of the city has resulted in disappointing traffic from foreign tourists.

3. SM Mall of Asia

Location: Pasay City, Philippines

Year Opened: 2006

Gross Leasable Area: 4.2 million square feet

Includes the first Olympic-sized swimming pool and first IMAX theater in the Philippines. Spread over four buildings, customers can get around on a 20-seat tram.

4. West Edmonton Mall

Location: Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Year Opened: 1981

Gross Leasable Area: 3.8 million square feet

The biggest in North America, the West Edmonton Mall has over 800 stores, along with attractions like a water park, skating rink, casino and rides.

5. SM Megamall

Location: Mandaluyong City, Philippines

Year Opened: 1991

Gross Leasable Area: 3.6 million square feet

Fun stuff includes bowling, ice skating and a 12-cinema movie theater, along with traditional mall fare like arcade games. Customers can also get a haircut or see a doctor at the Manila clinic.

6. Berjaya Times Square

Location: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Year Opened: 2005

Gross Leasable Area: 3.4 million square feet

Built with an adjacent hotel and convention center. In addition to over 1,000 retail shops, the mall includes a 12-story-high roller coaster, plus a pool, skating rink and "Cosmo's World," a children's theme park.

7. Beijing Mall

Location: Beijing, China

Year Opened: 2005

Gross Leasable Area: 3.4 million square feet

The first real suburban mall in China, located about an hour from downtown Beijing, this center has four levels with parking for 8,000 cars, plus a man-made beach. Bootlegged DVDs of American movies are a top sell

8. Zhengjia Plaza

Location: Guangzhou, China

Year Opened: 2005

Gross Leasable Area: 3 million square feet

Has been known to attract over half a million shoppers on a good day. Another mixed-use space, the mall has a hotel and office tower in addition to retail stores.

9. SM City North Edsa

Location: Quezon City, Philippines

Year Opened: 1985

Gross Leasable Area: 3 million square feet

The first major "mega mall" built by SM Prime Holdings, which now claims three of the largest 10 in the world. It's a five-story complex that boasts over 100 retail outlets and restaurants, along with 12 cinemas, a bowling alley and skating rink. An IMAX theater could be added soon.

10. King of Prussia Mall

Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

Year Opened: 1962

Gross Leasable Area: 2.8 million square feet

This product of the original U.S. mall building surge in the early 1960s still survives on the top 10 list, at least until the next big project goes up in Asia. Billing itself as the "premier shopping destination on the East Coast," this mall takes advantage of its location right off the Pennsylvania Turnpike to draw shoppers from New York, New Jersey and Maryland to its 400 stores. Despite a lack of theme parks and other modern amenities, package deals with Radisson Hotels and cross-marketing with nearby attractions like the Revolutionary War encampment at Valley Forge draw out-of-state shoppers looking to get away for a day or two.


8 out of 10 are in Asia-Pacifc
