PostSubject: World's 10 LARGEST SHOPPING MALLS   2008-06-04, 12:12

1. South China Mall
Location: Dongguan, China
Year Opened: 2005
Gross Leasable Area: 7.1 million square feet

In
the Chinese mall arms race, this facility opened a year after the
Golden Resources Mall to displace it as the country's and the world's
largest. The space includes wind mills and theme parks, plus a replica
of the Arc de Triomphe.



2. Golden Resources Shopping Mall
Location: Beijing, China
Year Opened: 2004
Gross Leasable Area: 6 million square feet

Not
sprawling, this is a stacked-up five-story mall. Approximately 1,000
stores, selling plenty of familiar global brands like Nike and DKNY. A
truly ambitious real estate project, with new apartments and offices,
surround the mall. A tough location outside the heart of the city has
resulted in disappointing traffic from foreign tourists.



3. SM Mall of Asia
Location: Pasay City, Philippines
Year Opened: 2006
Gross Leasable Area: 4.2 million square feet

Includes the first Olympic-sized swimming pool and first IMAX theater in the Philippines.
Spread over four buildings, customers can get around on a 20-seat tram.



4. West Edmonton Mall
Location: Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Year Opened: 1981
Gross Leasable Area: 3.8 million square feet
The
biggest in North America, the West Edmonton Mall has over 800 stores,
along with attractions like a water park, skating rink, casino and
rides.



5. SM Megamall
Location: Mandaluyong City, Philippines
Year Opened: 1991
Gross Leasable Area: 3.6 million square feet

Fun
stuff includes bowling, ice skating and a 12-cinema movie theater,
along with traditional mall fare like arcade games. Customers can also
get a haircut or see a doctor at the Manila clinic.



6. Berjaya Times Square
Location: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Year Opened: 2005
Gross Leasable Area: 3.4 million square feet

Built
with an adjacent hotel and convention center. In addition to over 1,000
retail shops, the mall includes a 12-story-high roller coaster, plus a
pool, skating rink and "Cosmo's World," a children's theme park.



7. Beijing Mall
Location: Beijing, China
Year Opened: 2005
Gross Leasable Area: 3.4 million square feet

The
first real suburban mall in China, located about an hour from downtown
Beijing, this center has four levels with parking for 8,000 cars, plus
a man-made beach. Bootlegged DVDs of American movies are a top seller.



8. Zhengjia Plaza
Location: Guangzhou, China
Year Opened: 2005
Gross Leasable Area: 3 million square feet

Has
been known to attract over half a million shoppers on a good day.
Another mixed-use space, the mall has a hotel and office tower in
addition to retail stores.



9. SM City North Edsa
Location: Quezon City, Philippines
Year Opened: 1985
Gross Leasable Area: 3 million square feet

The
first major "mega mall" built by SM Prime Holdings, which now claims
three of the largest 10 in the world. It's a five-story complex that
boasts over 100 retail outlets and restaurants, along with 12 cinemas,
a bowling alley and skating rink. An IMAX theater could be added soon.



10. King of Prussia Mall
Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
Year Opened: 1962
Gross Leasable Area: 2.8 million square feet
