Vijay Chauhan, Director, Adidas

“You’ll find the Kolkata spirit alive here (City Centre), with people cutting across age groups, indulging in adda with a cup of tea in one hand and a cigarette in the other.”

B.S. Nagesh, CEO, Shoppers Stop

“Most promoters would have packed City Centre more densely. The potent combination of Harsh Neotia and Charles Correa ensured that aesthetics triumphed over economics in strategic decision-making. The result: a most un-mall-like mall. There is just no other mall in India quite like City Centre Salt Lake”

Virag Joshi, President and CEO, KFC and Pizza Hut

“In the last three years, our City Centre Salt Lake outlet has emerged in the top five of our 126 Indian outlets – in terms of footfalls, revenue and profits.”

Alok Tandon, CEO, Inox Leisure Ltd.

” In a very short span of time, the City Centre New Town mall has become a happening place and a perfect destination for family outings with the best of high-street brands setting up their presence. Its unique aesthetics and a steady flow of promotional initiatives like Winter Carnivals, Rock festivals etc. undertaken by the mall have also helped in adding incremental footfalls…We are confident that our multiplex will do exceptionally well and go on to become one of our flagship properties in the East”.

Sonaal Chopra, CEO, Timezone Entertainment

“If I have to think of the best open plan mall in India – a challenging concept to implement – the first name that would come to my mind would be City Centre Salt Lake in Kolkata, followed by Nirmal Lifestyle in Mumbai.”

Rudra Kishore Sen, Head – Operations (East), McDonald’s India

“City Centre New Town has the right mix of brands, and is one of the prized retail locations in the city of Kolkata. Ambuja Realty has been able to create a very compelling customer experience, which few other retail locations have been able to match. Establishing our presence at this property has not only helped us increase our presence but strengthened the McDonald’s brand experience in Kolkata city”.

Shweta Shetty, Head Business Development, Café Coffee Day

“The setting couldn’t have been better because you feel so relaxed, without being boxed in like the other malls. Just right for a coffee shop.”

Vineet Kapila, President, Spencer’s

"Siliguri is a fast growing market and our presence there is imperative. However we wanted to partner with a developer who would be able to visualise a property, which will meet the consumer aspirations of the catchments. There could have been no one better than Ambuja Realty."

S. Ranganathan, Chief of Operations, Shoppers Stop

"Shoppers Stop is in 22 Indian locations today but the store in City Centre Salt Lake figures among the top 10 in terms of revenues and profit per square foot.”

Vasanth Kumar, Executive Director, MAX

"City Centre Siliguri has a balanced retail mix, with entertainment and food courts. The composite development planned for residential, commercial office spaces and Mall makes City Centre a desired shopping and entertainment destination at Siliguri."

R. Parthasarathy, Head – Retail Services, Madura Garments

“The street feel in City Centre - without the street! - makes the place different.”

Lovey Burman, Director, Kookie Jar

“City Centre Salt Lake gave Kookie Jar the confidence to develop into a chain.”

Vijayant Chabra, Executive Director, Archies

“I would rank City Centre Salt Lake as one of the top 10 malls in India… We should have taken more space at City Centre.”

Jayabrato Chatterjee, Writer and Filmmaker

“City Centre gives me space to do my own thing. I can shop at leisure, eat to my heart's content and even catch a movie if I'm in the mood, without running in different directions. The result is that I visit City Centre at least once a week even though I live in Southern Avenue!”

K.S. Dhillon, Director - Retail Operations Liliput World

"Liliput, the symbol of fashion for kids, looks to set its mark at Ambuja City Centre Siliguri – the shoppers paradise for people of North East."
