This thread about Mall or Multiplex? Centre square is a big size mall with a 11 screen multiplex. Just that the cinemas haven't been opened to public due to fire approval.
This thread is for Mall. Me asked to list malls having multiplex currently functioning in Kerala. center sq can't called mall until its open cinepolis. When multiplex is open we can add to list.

Malls=multiplex retail game zone food court

Well, you can refine your questions, like malls with McDonalds or malls with sports apparel stores etc. But you can't make your own definition of what is a "mall".

Dictionary.com says "A large retail complex containing a variety of stores and often restaurants and other business establishments housed in a series of connected or adjacent buildings or in a single large building." Now, how you define "large" is subjective. But there is no rule that there must be a multiplex for an establishment to be called a mall.

BTW, Canton at Muvattupuzha should be there in the list.

I think the dictionary definition helps most of the shopping centers that came offlate to be called as malls.

In Kollam itself there are small shopping centers called as malls such as iMall, Eye Mall, Bother's Shopping Mall, and even some in rederings such as Safeer Mall, Ruby Mall, The City Mall, Mili Mall, etc...Infact, some of them are not eligible in the category but named as malls. A proper definition is required for mall else most of our cities will be filled with the so called malls and a stranger coming to a city for the first time may be confused which one is actually a mall worth to visit !:eek:hno:

Not shopping complexes like GCDA or Penta Menaka. Malls with multiplexes already existing in towns like Muvattupuzha and soon to be started in Perumbavur, Thodupuzha, Kodungallur etc. The trend is, spreading across central and malabar regions. We cannot convert our coastal cities into Bangalore or Coimbatore where, after the city limits only halli's and patti's exists. Continuous urban growth is happening in even towns closer to hills, like Thodupuzha.

Since this is called' Kerala Malls, Commercial buildings & retail' I would list out malls without multiplexes too:-

1) Bay pride, Kochi
2) Focus mall, Kozhikode
3) Capitol mall, Kannur
4) Selex mall,Thrissur
5) Club 7

Is this list complete? Iam not taking into account Thrissur city centre or GCDA complex Marine Drive because the definition of a mall is an enclosed space while a shopping complex is just a open row of shops. Please see this link for a full definition. In short if it is enclosed with air conditioned and if it has amusement areas, food court etc it is a mall.
