The Iran Mall is the biggest shopping mall in the world in terms of area, and one of the largest commercial, cultural and social projects in the world, located in northwest Tehran, Iran, by Chitgar Lake.
The multi-purpose complex was designed on land with an area of 317,000 square meters and seven floors. Its infrastructure area in the first phase is 1,350,000 square meters, which will be increased to 1,600,000 square meters when all the development phases are completed.
Over 1,200 contractors and 25,000 workers took part in the construction of Iran Mall. The facility is owned by Ayandeh Bank. The original idea of building such a large complex came from the well-known Iranian entrepreneur, Ali Ansari, who has also been the chief executive of constructing the Iran Mall.
There are over 700 stores in the Iran Mall and a wide variety of upscale facilities and amenities. Some noteworthy facilities in the mall are a hotel, an ice rink, a multiplex cinema, a bowling alley, a sports medicine clinic, and an exhibition center. Of the more unique attractions, the mall’s traditional bazaar probably tops the list.
On 16 March 2020, for the first time in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Iran Mall closed all its units and immediately set up a convalescent center for patients with COVID-19. This convalescent center was established in less than three days with a capacity of 3,000 beds at the Iran Mall Exhibition Centre and continued to operate for two months. The launch of this convalescent center was widely reported in the domestic and international media.
In May 2021, Iran mall vaccination center started operating as the biggest and most well-run hub in the country at Iran mall Exhibition Centre. The center with a capacity of injecting more than 20,000 doses of vaccine is still providing services to citizens (as of December 2021).
