Bardiya Group with its advent in Real Estate was proactive in realizing this testimony, and the outcome was a radical success. The Group rather than focusing on new residential developments, which has the trend back in the 1990s vouched to spread out the marketable side of real estate at the unexplored areas of the city consequently taking the city of Jaipur to newer pinnacles of commercial ‘real-estate’ success. In 1992, Bardiya Group sparked off a revolution in organized real estate for commercial development by scheduling a retail format where all the basic needs of a family were met under a single roof and at the same time the plan extended amiable support to corporate organizations for setting up of offices. The Big idea was to create the very first Mega Shopping Mall of Jaipur and the idea got realized in the shape of Gaurav Tower, getting established at Malviya Nagar.
The development of “Gaurav Tower” began in the year 1993; the first phase was completed in the year 1995 and the second phase in 1997. Since a decade and a half, Gaurav Tower remains to be the most celebrated mall of Jaipur providing shoppers and tourists an unequaled shopping experience along with entertainment and innumerable food & beverage options. Gaurav Tower is spread in area of around 2,00,000 sq. feet and covers a large variety of world-class brands of apparels & clothing, electronics, furniture, shoes & accessories, Jewelry, supermarket & super stores, restaurants & food courts etc. The Mall attracts an enormous footfall of over 25,000 people a day.
The construction aspect of Gaurav Tower facilitates a naturally airy & well lit ambiance. The mall has spacious passages, courtyards and delightful fountains as its highlights. There are huge spacious parking slots to facilitate the visitors further. The podium area at the main entrance with an open area of around 20,000 sq. ft. lends the full view of the mall and also provides ample space for people to hang around and have fun with their friends and family. The basement of Gaurav Tower with vanilla stores, shops as well as hi-tech kiosks houses the biggest cluster market establishment for Jaipur’s local vendors. The concept of kiosks was earlier considered classified as ‘small-time’ shops. Bardiya Group realized the potential of these so called small time shops and knew the possibilities that they possessed. Gaurav Tower presented these Kiosks as a new trendsetting concept in the retail domain.
In 1996-97 in order to attract footfall in this new area, Bardiya Group organized mega fairs. The grand success of these fairs attracted popular brands like Shopper Stop, McDonald’s, Pizza Hut, Dominos Pizza, Planet M, etc to open their stores in the mall, which were among first few stores of these brands in north India. Today, Gaurav Tower holds an enviable pool of multi-national and national retail brands in the city such as Mc. Donald’s, Reliance Digital Xpress, Raymonds, Woodland, Mochi, Bata, Planet Sports, Gold’s Gym, Café Coffee Day, Kaya Skin, Vodafone State Headquarters, Godrej, Dream House, Ganesham Electronics, and many more.
