VIJAYAWADA: Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has said the proposed Lulu International Shopping Mall coming up in Visakhapatnam should be the ‘talk of the world’ with unique designs. He said the priority should be given in designing the complex for a better sea view with underpass or overpass from the complex to the beach.

It may be noted that the Lulu International Shopping Mall and Mega International Convention Hall is coming up in 13.83 acres of land in Visakhapatnam at a cost of Rs 1,500 crore. The project components include a mega commercial complex with six lakh sq ft, convention centre-cum-exhibition halls with 5,000 seating capacity, a 5-star hotel with 220 rooms and other supporting facilities.

The Lulu mall delegation, led by Design International CEO Davide Padoa, called on the Chief Minister at the Interim Government Complex in Velagapudi on Friday and gave a presentation on the designs of the shopping mall.

After the presentation, the Chief Minister said the Lulu International Convention Hall and Shopping Mall should be an iconic structure.
