Ahmedabad One is an operational retail mall that was acquired by Nexus Malls, a Blackstone Group company. Bentel Associates was mandated to review and recommend changes to the space planning of the mall which improved the visibility of few under-performing areas. The vertical circulation was also improved by relocating staircases and elevators. The food-court was completely revamped with fresh interiors using a brighter décor enhanced by diffused natural light. The capacity of the food court was dramatically increased while maintaining the number of food stores and kiosks, which were relocated closer to the multiplex entrance to improve business. High touch point areas including toilets were redesigned with additional amenities such as child care and access for the disabled.
Furthermore, Bentel provided architecture and interior designs services for the extension of the mall, a new block ‘Ahmedabad Gold’, positioned as a premium destination housing luxury and bridge brands. This new block, connected to the existing retail block and adjacent operational luxury hotel (Hyatt Regency), will complete the revitalization of this project and firmly establish its preeminent position as the most successful retail project of the city.
