New Asian shopping mall to open in East London
A new indoor Asian shopping centre is to open in the Green Street shopping district in East London this autumn.
Built on the former site of a bus depot, the East Shopping Centre will comprise 27 individual, two storey retail units anchored by a ground floor Souk which will provide a smaller marketplace for retailers and local businesses.
In addition, there will be a first floor food court where there will be six to seven quality catering units with a common seating area.
Due to open in October, the centre will include eco-friendly features such as solar panels, flow restrictors to help save water, and harvesters to recycle water.
Its developers ACR Investments said: “We couldn’t be more excited to be making history with East Shopping Centre, being the first development of its kind in Europe.
"The borough of Newham is a wonderful district with so much potential and Green Street is already a major hub for people to shop for clothes, food, accessories and everything in between.
"Our aim is for East Shopping Centre to enhance the street’s appeal and expand on this vibrant shopping destination by attracting new consumers and businesses."
The new shopping centre is expected to create around 200 jobs.
