Another question – easy take

Did you answer Chenthil’s latest trivia question yet?

Here is another

Where%20in%20Chennai_Oct23.JPG

a) What is this building in the making?

b) Where in Chennai is this building?

Update: Senthil got the answer it. It is the Ampa Mall at the junction of Nelson Manickam Road and Poonamallee High Road. The area is Aminjikarai.

the Rs 50-crore mall project located at the junction of Poonamallee High Road and Nelson Manickam Road, would be spread over three acres.

There would be a total of six lakh sq ft of built-up space, he [Ampa Palaniappan] added.

The company [Ampa Housing Development] has signed up two anchor stores for the mall – The Spencer’s Hypermarket and Westside. The mall will feature over three lakh sq ft of retail space on three floors.

the company has signed up with PVR Cinema to provide 50,000 sq ft of viewing space for a seven-screen multiplex.

The company has a partly lease and revenue sharing arrangement with PVR Cinema, he added. The mall will have a food court serving 15-18 different cuisines, three fine dining restaurants, and a coffee shop. There will also be a 20-room boutique hotel.

Provision for the parking of about 1,000 cars has also been made, he said. Entry to the mall would be possible from both the roads. The company has opted to lease out the space rather than go in for outright sale.

    Senthil’s got the location wrong.This is at the junction of Nelson Manickam Road and Poonamallee High Road and so Nungambakkam falls nowhere in the picture.The exact location is Aminijikarai.

    Senthil got it right and Shek got the location exactly right. Easy wasn’t it?

    Ampa Center One Mall when ready should in 2007 be a great place to shop cause it has many many stores with a retail spread of over 3 lakh sq.ft.One should be able to buy almost everythen one needs under one roof and get real value with the hypermarket coming up.Plus the major draw will be PVR Cinemas which is India’s best Multiplex Company.It should run to packed crowd no doubting that.This is sure to become one major landmark in Chennai city next year.

    @Thad: I have been wondering along the same lines. Especially when I go to Citi Center.

    @John: It should run to packed crowd – that seems inevitable
