The first indoor Asian shopping centre in Europe, East Shopping Centre, will open in East London’s Green Street in October.
The new centre is being developed on a one acre site of a former bus depot and features 35 two-storey retail units and a 17 unit market place for local businesses. The centre will also have a six unit food court.
Many Asian fashion, jewellery and accessory brands have already signed up to the venture which is being spearheaded by ACR Investments.
Eco-friendly features in the design include solar panels to save on electricity usage, flow restrictors to help save water, and harvesters to recycle water throughout the mall.
