Yet another luxury mall

YET another luxury shopping destination, Shanghai IFC Mall, is emerging in the Lujiazui financial area in Pudong New Area as a world-class landmark.

The mega retail complex, which recently opened, has attracted international attention with its many international luxury brands.

It includes a shopping mall, a five-star Ritz-Carlton Hotel, two Grade-A office towers and high-quality serviced apartments.

There's more to come in the next phase of development.

Shanghai IFC Mall was designed by American architects Pelli, Clarke and Pelli and the interior was designed by Benoy Architects. The facade is constructed in diamond patterns that glitter at night. It offers expansive vistas of the Huangpu River, Oriental Pearl TV Tower and Lujiazui's lush green spaces.

The mall itself covers more than 100,000 square meters in two phases, the first covering 90,000 square meters and the second 10,000.

The first phase is a six-story shopping mall housing more than 180 premium international retailers and culinary specialties. It contains global flagship stores and concept stores of well-established and new brands; around 15 percent are in the Chinese market for the first time and 40 percent are making their debut in Shanghai.

It is unusual to have 25 international shops on the same floor, including Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Hermes, Gucci, Prada, Cartier, Ermenegildo Zegna, Salvatore Ferragamo, Giorgio Armani, Tiffany, Dunhill, Burberry and Dolce & Gabbana.

It will have the first deluxe Palace Cinema in Shanghai, with six houses and 800 plush seats equipped with high-end audio facilities.

The 2,600-square-meter Lifestyle Specialty Store is the famous chain's first store in China and offers a wide variety of lifestyle products and high-quality food.

A selection of fine international restaurants can be found on Levels 3 and 4, including the Michelin-starred Cantonese restaurant Lei Garden, the first renowned American Morton's Bar & The Steakhouse in China, and the popular Italian restaurant Isola.

A featured food zone on LG2 -- Fast Menu -- offers a range of hamburgers, BBQ, sushi, curry, ice cream and other treats and caters to office workers and strolling food lovers.

The mall, at 8 Century Avenue, is situated in a prime location and is easily accessible from around the city.

It takes 10 minutes to drive to the Bund and 20 minutes to get from the Shanghai Expo venue to Shanghai IFC Mall. The mall has direct access from LG2 to the Lujiazui station on Metro Line 2. It will also be linked with the Lujiazui Metro Line 14 station under construction.
