Trivandrumites rejoice! After months of rumours and mysteries, we are finally getting to see the first rendered images of upcoming lulu mall in Trivandrum.
The world-class mall which is coming up near Akkulam toll plaza has a total area of 2.5 Million sqft and consists of Mall, a convention centre and a 5 star Hotel.
It has three levels for retail and leisure with a total GLA (Gross leasable area) of 61,000sqm.
There will also be a Lulu Hypermarket with an area of 8,100 sqm and a Lulu Department Store with a space of another 8,100 sqm. Lulu Mall Trivandrum will have a parking capacity to park around 2,500 cars.
Apart from housing world’s leading brand outlets, food courts and multiplexes. The project also envisages a 150 suit 5-Star Hotel from Marriott and a large convention centre.
The images which first appeared in a site called Design International says 2018. This could either mean the mall will be open in 2018 or the construction will start in 2018. If 2 years is plenty to build a mall like this, then we will get to see Lulu Mall hopefully by 2018.
Earlier, Yusuff Ali M A, managing director of Lulu Group said the company is planning to invest Rs5,000 crore in India by 2020 largely for setting up shopping malls. The locations include Trivandrum, Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad.
The group has 124 shopping malls globally with operations in 30 countries, including Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt and Yemen, among other countries, and employs 35,000 people.
