Architect Aedas has been appointed to design a 2.1m ft2 retail and entertainment park in Lahore, Pakistan.

The Crystals scheme includes cinemas, food courts, a hotel, retail space and wedding facilities.

The design is inspired by Pakistani jewellery design and craftsmanship.

Marcus Wilkins, Aedas divisional diector, said: “There has been an increase in demand for retail space in Lahore, essentially due to the large population increase and growth of diverse income groups. Aedas is delighted to play its role in helping the city to meet this demand as well as create a significant catalyst for the ongoing development of the area.

“The arrival of the scheme will form a striking backdrop for the area. The Aedas concept of colours, colours and textiles has been inspired by the rich jewelry design and craftsmanship that Pakistan is historically renowned for. We thought this was particularly apt as Lahore is renowned as the cultural capital of Pakistan.”

Crystals forms phase one of the Expo site masterplan in the south western region of Lahore.

Start on site is scheduled for March 2013 and will be completed within a three year timescale.

I think they're just confused about whether Lahore is in India or Pakistan.

Dolmen is 550,000 sq. ft. and Centaurus is 400,000 sq. ft. If this is 2.1 million sq. ft. then it will be four times the size of Dolmen.
yeah 2.1m is huge. Dolmen is G+2, Centaurus is G+4 let's see how many it will have and the location etc.

The Nishat Group has recently purchased a chunk of land near the Lahore Expo Centre from the Lahore Development Authority, and has reserved it for a hotel.

LDA’s Trade Centre auctioned for Rs 2.17b

LAHORE - A hotel site of Lahore Development Authority (LDA), measuring 118 kanals, was auctioned for Rs2.177 billion on Monday.

The plot is situated in the planned Finance and Trade Centre, spreading over an area of 1123 kanals near Expo Centre in Johar Town, Lahore. Reserve price for the plot had been fixed as Rs One crore and 40 laks per kanal where as it was auctioned in one crore, 84 laks and fifty thousand rupees per kanal.

Severe competition between the bidders was witnessed at this occasion. Ms Nishat Hotels and Properties Limited offered the maximum bid for purchasing this plot whereas Ms. Daewoo Sapphire Consortium remained at the second position.

The auction proceedings were held at LDA Community Centre, 239-A New Muslim Town and were supervised by the Vice Chairman LDA, Aamir Asghar Dar. Members of LDA’s auction committee including Chief Metropolitan Planner Waseem Ahmad Khan, Director Estate Management One Muhammad Numan Khan, Director Finance Zaheer Asghar Rana, Director Estate Management Qaid-e-Azam Town Mian Mazhar Iqbal and Director Land Development One of LDA Imran Raza Abbasi conducted the auction.

The Governing Body of Lahore Development Authority has already permitted other uses of this hotel site including setting up of an Inter City Bus Terminal, a D-Class Bus Stand for indefinite period, Super Store, Shopping Centre and provision of other allied facilities. Lahore Development Authority has also decided to relax building bye laws for encouraging construction of high rise buildings in this new hub of business in the provincial metropolis.

They are designing these all facilities under one roof? I think design will have separate building for hotel and one huge complex for mall, cinemas, food etc.

The ad mentions 118 Kanals. That's just 59,000 sq. ft :dunno:

You're calculating based on square meters.

118 kanals = 14.75 acres = 642,510 sq.ft.

If the project has several floors they can fit 2.1 million acres in it - that's assuming it's the same site.

oh ****, I forgot, it's not 59,000 sq. ft, it's 59k sq. yards. Which means 531,000 sq. ft.

1 Kanal = 500 sq. yards.
You're still off a bit. One kanal = 1/8 of an acre = 0.125 acre = 505.857 sq. meters = 605 sq. yd. = 5445 sq. ft.
