We want to have 12 multiplex screens and parking for approximately 2000 cars. The parking facility will be expanded, we are still working at it". The project will be completed in 36 months with an investment of 300 crores.
The Inorbit mall will overlook the Durgam Cheruvu. Anand Sundaram, Vice President, design and planning, says, "Among the metros, Hyderabad has the maximum potential for growth. It is investor friendly and there's market waiting to be tapped. People in Hyderabad and Bangalore are movie lovers so multiplexes become an integral part of their lifestyle. We are planning to have five to eight screens. There are three elements that contribute to good shopping experience - retailing, food and entertainment. Most malls lack in one or the other area. The idea is to do the best in all the areas." Inorbit, spread across seven lakh sq ft area, will have multilevel parking for 1000 cars."
