Mall brings Western-style shopping experience to India’s Chandigarh
The North Country Mall in Chandigarh, capital of India’s Punjab state, is a joint venture between shopping center developer J.J. Gumberg Co. and global design firm tvsdesign. Scheduled to open this winter, the Western-style mall has already leased more than 75% of its outlets to international retailers. It features a total of 1.03 million sf of built-up area, with more than 325,000 sf reserved for anchor tenants and 255,000 sf for smaller stores. More than a shopping center, the North Country Mall was also designed as an entertainment complex and includes an IMAX theater.
