Nice starter compilation Tmac. Does anybody know when it's supposed to be complete? Things seems to have progressed nicely despite corruption troubles of its owner, but I would be suprised if the interior is finished this year. My prediction...at current rate of construction...middle of next year.

Very nice.

With all these beautiful constructions underway, power development board should wake up and do something about the hanging wires and ugly power grids.

Nice thread Tmac!From what I can see in the google earth pic of the mall,it is all set to have Five big Domes.Hope they make each part of the mall unique and diifferent from the other in terms of decoration and architecture-much like the Ibn Battuta Mall in Dubai which has got five parts based on the architecture of five countries.

I am unable to lookup Jamuna Groups website. Looks like the domain registration has expired.

The above structure is truly stunning. It's one of the best infrastructures in southeast Asia.

Looking at the Google Earth photo made me wonder...do any of you guys know which side of the building (north, south, east, or west) will be the main entrance? Or are there to be entrances on multiple sides? If we can go by the computer rendering, there will be some lawn area in front, but the Google Earth view shows the building hemmed in by other structures or trees...so some of that may have to be cleared.

This is how the place should look after JFP is completed.The rendering below also suggests that all small sized structures in the surrounding areas will be removed before the mall opens.

Very nice Mirza, but do you know if this is a current render? For instance, that semicircular window out front...I have not seen evidence of it being built in your photos. Interesting also to see the other buildings around JFP...I assume those are just hypothetical? Or are there plans for them to be built? Anyway, if the place turns out like the picture, that will be great. In fact, from what we've seen, it'll probably turn out great even if it doesn't end up exactly like the pic.

Tan,I am not sure if they still plan on building the exact thing in the picture.But JFP was always supposed to consist of one Mall,one 5 star hotel,and one world class hospital...so I guess the two buildings on two sides of the mall will be the hotel and the hospital.Small structures will surely be removed from the area,and from the front of the mall as its a huge project,and cannot afford to have those around it.

Hello Bangladeshi friends (haven't said hi in ages),

4.2m sq. ft is clearly indicative of a fast-growing retail sector in Bangladesh. BTW, is Jamuna Future park going to attract tourists from outside South Asia?

Hi to you too! I doubt that a shopping mall, in and of itself, will attract any tourists to Dhaka (after all, this isn't Dubai)...but I am sure that tourists already in Dhaka might stop by for a look-see.

Hi,

That would depend entirely on the retail stores, items, prices etc available in this mall. Also, they would need to advertise in other SE countries to attract tourists. Generally BD lacks poor image abroad compare to many neighboring countries even after having similar or better infrastructures.

There is another very big shopping mall (biggest in SE) in Dhaka and foreigners like it. But I don’t know if anyone would visit BD just to shop in that mall.

You can find info about that mall in other sections of this forum. The name of that mall is “Bashundhara” mall. Just to give you an idea how big that mall is, a Canadian diplomat based in Dhaka commented that it was one of the biggest malls she had ever seen in all the countries she had visited over the years!
