The Mantri Square located in Bangalore, was inaugurated on 16th March, 2010 by BS Yeddyurappa, Chief Minister of Karnataka. It is informed to be the biggest mall in India covering an area of about 9,19,516 sq. ft. with a parking space of 2,080 sq. ft. A mind boggling 200-230 outlets in retail space will be merchandising and selling their wares in this mall. They have an additional 36 options in Food court with 6 Inox screens with SCARE house too. You can find outlets of Spar, Reliance, Pantaloon, Lifestyle, Shopper’s Stop, Acer, HP etc. all under one roof. A complete shopping solution.
The best part of the mall is the parking area which is free (as of now) with double decker parking for cars. Auto parking is also on their cards. When inquired about the double decker parking (which seems to be first in Bangalore) to one of the service person, he informed about it’s functionality. One slot is always free so that cars from top can be pulled down. A full bay has 5 slots in the bottom while 4 slots in the top wherein the top open 5th slot is used to navigate the other cars parked up, to be lowered down. It was amazing to see the technology that is being used.
