Malls In India
The Mills Corporation introduced the racetrack mall design with Ontario Mills in 1996 which made the malls easy to navigate inside and has a smaller footprint rather than many linear malls that we know. The new residents thus had to form their own communities in the newly built environment composed mainly of residential towers, podium-top gardens, shopping malls and the leisure facilities provided by the government like the swimming pools, tennis courts and basketball playgrounds.
Cineplex’s move into mall-based advertising network space places the company in direct competition with established mall network players that include Pattison Outdoor’s Digital Mall Network and Neo Traffic And across the UK, Canary Wharf Media , Clear Channel Malls, and Limited Space all operate robust ad-based networks.
Shopping in Kuala Lumpur also offers variety the air conditioned shopping malls that deal in luxury high end goods, department stores, hypermarkets, shopping arcades that are complete with Cineplex complexes and bowling alleys, specialty shops and designer fashion boutiques make up the high end, modern shopping attractions of the city.
Another reason why the shopping malls in the urban centre cannot function as the public domain as the ones in the new towns do is they are not designed to serve only the surrounding neighbourhoods but actually the whole city of Hong Kong, probably due to their high land value and rent.
The International Council of Shopping Centers classifies shopping malls into eight basic types: neighborhood center, community center, regional center, superregional center, fashion/specialty center, power center , theme/festival center, and outlet center 30 These definitions, published in 1999, were not restricted to shopping centers in any particular country, but later editions were made specific to the US with a separate set for Europe.
