Elan Miracle is a flagship mixed–use development, by Elan Buildcon Pvt Ltd, strategically positioned on a prominent 6 acre plot, in Sector 84 Gurgaon. Situated at an important intersection of the Dwarka Expressway, one of the most important arterial roads connecting New Delhi with Gurgaon, it is in close proximity to Indira Gandhi International Airport. The development contains a rich mix of services and facilities including a large leisure and retail mall, a boutique hotel and luxury serviced apartments, all centered around a generously proportioned public courtyard and inhabited podium roof, landscaped with lush tropical flora and water bodies.
The Elan Miracle Mall, has two distinct centres of activity – one internal and one external. Arriving from the West, tenants, guests and visitors approach via a grand open courtyard with a footprint of over 26,000 square feet, that is generously landscaped on all sides and and punctuated by water spouts, retail kiosks and activity spaces. Four storeys of triple-A office accommodation overlook the courtyard, occupying the north western quadrant of the development. Approaching from the Dwaka Expressway to the East, a formal drop-off area, leads directly into the heart of the mall, with the atrium at its center.
The Mall accommodates a number of significant anchors including a rich and varied food court, as well as India’s largest multiplex cinema complex of over 100,000 sq ft, operated by PVR, with 18 screens incorporating a multitude of cinema experiences such as 7D, Goldscreen and IMAX formats.
Six storeys above street level, the rooftop gardens serve as a tranquil retreat, for more relaxed leisure and entertainment activities. Residential tenants and hotel guests can enjoy al fresco dining, pool and spa facilities, whilstfor more active guests, an outdoor yoga studio and jogging track are provided.
Soaring to 85 and 125m respectively, the twin towers of hotel and serviced apartments, punctuate the Gurgaon skyline, providing luxury accommodation with all the facilities of a 5-star hotel. The 150-key boutique hotel, has a dedicated drop-off and car park entrance at ground level, from where guests are taken by elevator to a voluminous double height sky lobby at podium level.
The external envelope of both the Mall and Towers follows a similar design language to the atrium mall within, with strongly accentuated horizontal bands and smooth curves at every interface. The principal cladding material used is a bespoke perforated aluminium screen with apertures of varying diameter, decreasing with the height of the building. This has the effect of softening the impact of this significant structure and creates a shimmering oasis ofactivity, constantly changing in appearance throughout the day, and throughout the seasons.
