Paseo Interlomas now open!

Paseo Interlomas is finally open. I have been following on this project since 2008, long before any construction was made and the final project decided on. Now Paseo Interlomas has been opened and it looks great. Well not all the stores are opened yet, but the ones opened are nice.

The mall includes three main stores, Liverpool, El Palacio de Hierro, and Sears. There is also cinemas, an ice rink, a food court, and a restaurant area. There are 110,000 square meters of retail area with 229 locals. The mall interior has wood highlights, very good natural illumination and ample spaces. The exterior has three elements that catch the eye: the restaurant area is covered with wood-like paneling and has terraces for the smoking areas of the restaurants; El Palacio de Hierro looks like a giant slab of black granite (think 2001: Space Odyssey) with a video screen on one corner; but the most intriguing design is the one of Liverpool, its facade is made of 7,5000 unique stainless steel panels that gives the illusion of the flow of the cars. The exterior of Liverpool was designed by the team of Rojkind Architects.

Here is also a bird's eye view of the mall, from the twitter account of Rojkind Architects:

Bellow I have compiled a list of the stores that are expected to open in Paseo Interlomas:

Update: I'll update the list as I know of more stores in the mall and which ones are open.
