Small Renderings.

I can't find anything larger, but based on this it seems the mall has a great design.

ABOUT ADO BAYERO MALL

Ado Bayero Mall is the first ultra-modern shopping mall in Northern Nigeria located in the heart of Kano city and named after the city’s longest serving Monarch, His Royal Highness Alhaji (Dr). Ado Bayero. When it opens in 2013, it will be the largest mall in Nigeria.

Situated in a neighborhood defined by a well balanced mix of commercial and residential properties, the mall is located near major access roads such as the Zaria –Maiduguri Highways, and is also adjacent to major landmarks such as Kano Trade Fair Complex and the historic Kano Zoo on Zoo road. This high-profile location guarantees easy access and visibility for all tenants and shoppers.

Spread over 10 hectares, Ado Bayero Mall will offer 24,000 m² of retail and entertainment space comprised of two major international shopping retailers (Shoprite & Game), the largest and modern indoor multi-screen cinema (Film House Cinemas) and a broad range of other offerings including restaurants, media stores and an indoor play area for young children. Furthermore, the mall offers over fifty (50) customisable shop spaces and ample parking for 1000 automobiles. Ado Bayero Mall will also offer specialist facilities for department stores, banks, fast food outlets, salons and indeed any tenant who may have special requirements.

The owners of the mall, Beverly Development and Realties Limited (BDRL) will be responsible for the management of the mall through a world class facility management firm. AdoBayero Mall is scheduled to open its doors to the general public in the second quarter of 2013. Anchor tenants include Game, Shoprite and Film House Ltd. Sole letting agents are Broll Property Services Limited.

While the mall constitutes the first phase of the development on the site, it is the intention of the owners to embark on a second phase comprising a 4-5 star hotel and an amusement park – thus providing the customers a unique blend of shopping, entertainment and hospitality experience.

I like this, as it is a challenge to many Southern governors to come up with something bigger. Probably by 2020, the largest shopping malls in Nigeria will change more than 10 times.

This is not significantly bigger than any of the other malls in terms of lettable space, which is what should be used to judge the size of a mall.

Tinapa - 80,000sqm (But seeing the state of the project, I don't know how much lettable space they ended up with - I guess, maybe it is fair not to consider this facility)
Eko Mall Eko Atlantic City - 40,000sqm
Silverbird Entertainment Center Abuja - 30,150sqm (This should be considered the largest shopping centre in Nigeria, I don't know why people call Polo Park or Ado Bayero the largest)
Ado Bayero - 24,000sqm
Polo Park Enugu - 22,530sqm
Ikeja Mall - 22,000sqm
Palms Shopping Mall Lagos - 19,520sqm
Ibadan Mall - 18,500sqm
Kwara Mall - 10,430sqm
Grand Towers Mall Abuja - 9,000sqm
Ceddi Plaza Abuja - 8,500sqm

It seems like a good mall. I am not too happy at some of that extensive the roofing though, it would have been wise to use a network of skylights and light wells to introduce more natural light into the mall spaces. They would save on operating costs on electricity for the long term.

The renderings look good. Let's hope Boko Haram will allow the mall to operate.
