A mall is a large retail complex comprising department stores, shops and restaurants. Pakistan is one of the countries where the trend of building malls is still relatively new. Consumer needs are evolving with time and everything has to be instantaneous. Therefore, what could be better than turning towards a place that provides everything under one roof—from grocery shopping and dining to entertainment and leisure. Builders and developers in megalopolises like Lahore and Karachi have erected a number of vertical buildings over the past decade as a one-stop solution for shoppers. The success of these malls has invited further competition in terms of building features, design and facilities. The trend of building more large indoor retail complexes has now been picked up by relatively smaller cities like Gujranwala as well. There might not be as many malls in Gujranwala as, let’s say, there are in Lahore, however, one look at upcoming projects will give you a better picture of the city’s promising commercial real estate future.
More developers in the “City of Wrestlers” are focusing on developing malls that can satisfy the rising demand for public spaces providing leisure and entertainment. Here we have listed features, facilities and the location of malls in Gujranwala, which aim to take the city’s shopping experience to a whole new level.
Malls In Gujranwala
Even though the list is short but all of the projects mentioned below offer or aim to provide world-class features not only to shoppers but also to businesses. We shall discuss:
- Mall of Gujranwala (MOG)

The road also helps people traveling from Sialkot and Lahore connect to Gujranwala and it’s also a good spot for grabbing a quick bite.

Unlike MOG and Kings Mall, Civic Centre is in its development phase. It aims to revolutionize the retail sector of Gujranwala by becoming the first driveway commercial centre where parking on different levels will be right in front of the shops. This feature will reduce the hassle of walking to the desired shop if you plan on going to one or limited shops on the same level. This is the kind of experience which shoppers will truly enjoy and produce a buzz effect.
The second phase of Civic Centre was launched a couple of years ago after the success of the first phase. The project is a development of Mughal Developers who have other ongoing development projects in Lahore and Faisalabad.
