It’s a big mall. Multi Level parking is available. No need to buy a ticket(just give a mobile number to the staff) but at exit , you have to pay the parking fees.

The place is good and the people working there are very polite, helpful and friendly  …..But most of the places in the Chennai City Centre are simply vacant … More shops would be included in the city center to have many people attracted towards it. Other than that there are Cinema theater, Food court, Textile , and some small shops. Good mall near Marina beach. At present not much is happening inside the mall. Inox cinema is running. Rest all by looking , construction is going on inside for the majority of shops. That much crowd is not present.
