Model Answer:

Well, modern cities are constantly developing and my city is not exception.

What development is it?
There are numerous facilities available for the dwellers of the area but one facility was not available for some time people in my area were deprived of a multiplex but after a year-long construction finally, it is opened to the general public.

Where is it located?
I have visited this place as well and I must say that it is an outstanding place where people can do a lot of things. It was very much required before the opening of the shopping mall that people were compelled to go shopping in the nearby big city.

What are its features and benefits?
So, it was a total waste of time but now they can simply visit this mall in their city and purchase anything especially when it comes to major brands.

Most brands are available in this shopping mall and people can do all their shopping just under one-roof other than shopping, it has become a hub for entertainment as well.

Firstly, there are cineplexes people visit with their friends and family to watch the latest released movies at the same time there are game parlours, and play areas for children which means it is a wonderful place for families to spend their weekends.

Yet another advantage of this shopping mall is that there is a food court at the top floor where there are all the brands available for example, American restaurant like Mc Donald’s if you want to enjoy Pizza there is Domino’s, if you want to enjoy fried chicken there is KFC and all these were not available in my city prior opening of this shopping mall.

Now, usually on weekends I visit here with friends and family and we really have a good time together. The best part is that for old people there are escalators and elevators which make it extremely accessible and we know that these shopping malls are always climate controlled which means you always have a wonderful shopping experience.

Overall, I can say that it is one of the recent development in my town and I am delighted that now I have a shopping mall in my own city.
