Since its Opening in January 2008, this Mall has ushered in an unparalleled phenomenon in this part of India, and redefined shopping and retail experience in the city, albeit the whole of East India, to a whole new level.

Changes expected

  • Rust is Out. Black is IN.
    The glossy, reflective Rust colored cladding on either wing of the facade has been replaced by matt, soft shine jet black cladding. The cladding has been done till the edge on top unlike earlier. The soft lustre black cladding, needless to say, is looking much classier than before, and it complements the display boards and brand logos, which stands out more vividly and prominent against the black backdrop.
  • The portico has an all glass enclosure, right in front of the mall entrance.
  • The Roof the portico is having a new set of glass.
  • Diamond shaped marqee panels, in beige and gold color, clad the center of the mall facade. Earlier there was no cladding here. The display boards which used to jut out of the surface, have been embossed in this cladding.
  • Every single Glass panel on the facade, be it the Central dome or the Side Vertical panes, have been replaced.
  • The Sides of the mall, as well as the parking is still getting finishing touches. The side cladding in Rust color will also change to Soft Black.
  • The entire driveway has been relaid in concrete with a slightly raised surface, waiting for a new set of granite.
  • We will see a substantial increase in Mall floor plate by about 1 lakh sq.ft. retail space. With the addition of another floor on the right wing, the food court will shift to the top.
  • The huge additional Steel frame structure on top will be the new food court. Waiting to see how it looks..!!!
  • Several new brands, in addition to the existing ones, will dot the mall. Forever 21 launched today. Starbucks, Sephora and a host of others is also on cards. We might hv another big anchor to the likes of Zara or H&M.
  • State of the art facilities and upgrades, with luxury lounge, Wifi zones, IMAX, Dolby Atmos, and a host of others. The Pantaloons store itself had a stunning makeover just before the pujas.
  • The proposed refurbishment will comprise three aspects: comfort, safety and greenery . Restrooms will become premium and corridors will get a new ceiling. In the second, the entire electrical wiring will be overhauled and new-generation CCTV cameras, smoke detectors, heat detectors and motion sensors installed. The security check-points at the entrance will be upgraded. In the third, the entire illumination will use LED, water will be recycled and a more efficient HVAC (heating, ventilation and airconditioning) system will replace the current one.

Cant wait for the Interior World class experience..!!!

An explosion of Brands lined up...
Ans an envious line up as well..
Most people r unaware that stores in SCM is opening daily in phases..Shops r actually opening in phases..To most revellers a mall is either open or closed..partial concept is beyond understanding of many..especially potential buyers..when a potential buyer goes to a mall he/she wants to be spoilt for it is still limited as most think mall is not fully open. Its people like u and me who researches this knows whats open and whats not..

Let the mall be fully thrown to public and then see the surge..
Almost all the vanilla stores hv become bigger than earlier.
Also they look much jazzier and decked up in design, aesthetics and visual merchandising.

Seems like this is the spot where Zara would open its store...and would sing zara zara...:lol:...btw, if it would be one of the largest store in SCM...

Yes, this is the Store. Goes further all the way left. It is pretty big.
A sneak peak into the bowling alley of Timezone...

Wow!! :cheers:
The TimeZone is way bigger than earlier. Probably the first gaming zone in a mall to accommodate a bowling alley.
