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.

Because 15 acres of land is impossible to find in the center of the the city, and if it was available the price would be far higher. They've already paid $22 million for this.

Although many international cities have downtown malls the vast majority of them are built in the suburbs. Toronto has a large mall downtown but NYC doesn't.
btw johar town is not the suburb its pretty much in the city
