Chandigarh is growing as the next metro city of Indian and thus is attracting a lot of investments from global businesses that eye the premium audience of the city. It all started with Fun Republic mall that was the first shopping mall of Chandigarh. The city soon saw DT Mall (DLF City Center), Centra Mall and the entire game changed when Elante came into existence.
We all know that Elante is the most premium and the biggest shopping mall in Chandigarh that attracts lakhs of people every month. North Country Mall opened in Kharar (Mohali) and it also contributed to the area development in a huge manner. But now, we have something bigger and better.
New Shopping Mall in Chandigarh
A shopping mall was into construction from the last 4 years in the IT park area of Chandigarh and this mall is almost at par with the biggest mall of North India i.e. Ambience Mall in Gurgaon. The construction has been completed and this mega mall in Chandigarh is all set to be thrown open to the public in April 2017.
With a massive front area and an excellent infrastructure in the front, this mall is simply an eye catcher. It is as beautiful from inside as it looks from the outside. The construction of the mall has been completed in 4 phases. Each phase took close to 1 year to get complete and it is in 2017 that this new mall is all set to rock Chandigarh.
Highlights of Chandigarh’s New Mall
One simple look at the mall will be enough to judge the massive infrastructure. Considering the smart city status for Chandigarh, this new shopping mall has been designed in a unique way. Here are some highlights of the mall:
- 50% of the mall outer area is built of glass.

- The roof of the mall has a helipad.
- There are over 150 restaurants.
