The project, termed Forum Esplanade, is coming up at one of the strategically located areas in the city and is being built by Leighton, a major construction and contracting company based out of Australia. It would house around 150 operators in sectors like retail, food and entertainment. Further, the mall would count Mexican multiplex chain Cinepolis as one of its key anchor tenants. Cinepolis has committed a seven-screen multiplex with a seating capacity of 1,250. Retail chains like Lifestyle, Max and Home Centre would also set up shop in the mall complex.
