A new colony of mall in the Indian state of Karnataka has been announced as the first in the country.
The mall was built in partnership with an old colony, and it’s now the largest of its kind in the world.
The new colony will be built in the city of Kanpur in the south-western state of Maharashtra.
“It’s a unique opportunity, the first mall in Karnataka,” said Kanpur-based mall operator Sunil Bansal.
The mall is designed to accommodate both children and adults, and offers shopping, leisure, education, entertainment and healthcare facilities.
The building is slated to open next year.
“There are lots of people who come here every day,” said Banal.
“They have no other place to go.
They come to us, they buy our goods and we pay them back.”
Mall workers have started construction work on the first phase of the mall, which will have two floors and will have a capacity of 1.8 million.
The two floors are being built on the existing mall and are slated to be completed by March.
“We will build it in two phases.
The first phase is for construction and the second phase is the retail,” said Bansal, who added that the mall will cater to all ages.
The plan is for the new colony to be the largest in the state, with 1.3 million sq ft. of space.
“The first phase will be for construction,” he said.
The two-storey building is located in a cluster of old colonial buildings and has an entrance gate on the third floor.
The entrance gate will be made of the same material as the existing entrance gates, with the addition of a glass window on the fourth floor.
The first floor is being built with new materials, like concrete, and the building is designed with a more open and inviting design.
The second floor will be open-plan with a view.
The third floor will have an open plan.
The project will take place in three phases.
On one floor, the mall’s first phase and the main retail will be completed.
The remaining space will be allocated to the second floor, which is designed for residential use.
The fourth floor will include a fitness centre, restaurants, retail, a gymnasium and a gym.
The construction is scheduled to be complete by the end of the year.
