A retail hub in Kazakhstan's main commercial city

Mega 2 opened to the public in November 2013. The scheme has almost doubled the amount of retail space on this site, providing over 100 additional retail units, as well as a major restaurant court to the unified development. 

Striking views

With an area of more than 78,000m² encompassed by a sweeping, angled roof, the building climbs up its sloping site and is surmounted by a restaurant court which offers dramatic views of the mountain range encircling the southern edge of the city. 

Modern retail with traditional Kazakh signatures

A rich external landscape is also incorporated, with surface parking in front of the building and an amphitheatre, stage and large LED screen forming a focal point. Design themes relate to Kazakh landscape and iconography and include motifs based on mountain lakes and streams, a Kazakh marketplace as well as poppies and eagles. These are integrated with a number of unique artworks specially commissioned from local artists for the project.

Chapman Taylor undertook the layout planning and design of Mega 2 from concept through to tender stage, also overseeing construction works on site.
