Upon completion the Mall will be Nigeria's Largest!
Late October/Early November Construction Update of Jabi Lake Mall
The size difference between the three malls in Kano, Accra and Abuja is negligible. In terms of finishing and general appearance, we would prematurely rate the Jabi Lake Mall to be slightly better than West Hills Mall, with Ado Bayero trailing in third place. Jabi Lake Mall will boast of new international entrants such as Versace, Armani Jeans, Swarovski and Jack Jones to the Nigerian market. However if unconvinced, we believe that Jabi Lake takes home the price, with its unrivaled waterfront location, with inselbergs in the distance and sprawling residential estates and vegetation.
The Mall does not simply exist within this context however, the site informs its very design. Unlike most malls in West Africa or Africa for that matter, that are essentially shoe boxes.........the Jabi Lake Mall gently cascades into its terrain, and where the mall meets the edge of the waterfront, there is an open green space to continue the theme of relaxation and amenity. For more information about the Jabi Lake Mall, read our previous entry.
The West Hills Mall is shown below (After the Jump), as well as additional construction images from September.
