Scope of Project:
Construction of new large shopping centre

Opened in 2007, The Avenues is one of the largest malls in the world with more than 800 stores spread over the 7 districts.

Albion Stone supplied 540m² of Portland Jordans Basebed for the prestigious ‘Grand Avenue’ district in the form of internal flooring and cladding to shop facades.

Walking down the tree-lined Grand Avenue is much like walking down a grand shopping boulevard in the centre of Europe. The Architecture of the retail facades features three styles – European, local and contemporary. The Grand Avenue Boulevard is covered with a transparent roof structure that reinforces and enhances the feeling of being outdoors.
