Mixing modern with heritage

Market City Pune consists of a 190,000m² main complex and a 21,600m² bazaar-style mall. Market City features a five-storey retail centre topped with an entertainment level. Four towers sit above this housing a 5-Star Hotel, serviced apartments and twin office buildings.

A looping driveway conveniently provides access to the independent drop-off area of each tower, while the main entrance stands out with a distinctive frontage featuring a flowing ribbon-like glass canopy. This wavy marquise wraps around the podium and forms a sheltered plaza at the entrance for public enjoyment, which acts as a ‘canvas’ for a large digital screen.

The shopping centre has been conceived as a continuous loop with a large central courtyard that forms a landscaped outdoor environment where bars and restaurants stay open late, keeping the space lively long into the evening.
