The Centra Mall is located in the Industrial Sector and a high accessibility area with excellent linkages from the airport, railway station and the residential and institutional areas of the city.
The design intent for the mall has two predominant aspects viz. the socio-cultural aspect and the environmental strategy. Traditionally, malls have been approached with a box-type morphology that excludes people and is not democratic in nature. Hence, the approach has been to reverse this morphology and open up the box instead towards the site context and surroundings.
