Omaxe Ltd. took on the challenge of reinventing Chandni Chowk to bring a modern shopping experience that, while being contemporary, was also traditional at heart

New Delhi: Chandni Chowk, an iconic and bustling traditional high street in Delhi, has long been known for its vibrant atmosphere, historical charm, and diverse shopping experiences.

The need
With the government’s thorough revamp of the area, there was the need to bring a modern shopping experience that, while being contemporary, was also traditional at heart. Omaxe Ltd. took on the challenge and, in an ambitious endeavour, came up with a modern and organised retail destination Omaxe Chowk, that, while preserving the essence of Chandni Chowk, offered people a convenient shopping experience.

The approach
Spread over 4.5 acres of land with a total built-up area of more than 10 lakh sq. ft., the vision behind Omaxe Chowk was to create a world-class shopping and entertainment destination that pays homage to the historical charm of Chandni Chowk while offering a more structured and convenient experience for visitors.

Incorporating modern amenities was a crucial aspect of the transformation. Air-conditioned shops, clean walkways, and enhanced security measures are standard features of Omaxe Chowk. The entire edifice complements the historical ambience, significantly improving the shopping experience and ensuring visitors’ comfort.

Getting approval and support from the local community and authorities was a challenge. However, Omaxe Chowk communicated its commitment to promoting Chandni Chowk’s traditional shopping. As a result, merchants and residents gradually warmed up, realising that Omaxe Chowk intended to support local businesses and artisans.

A focus on various crucial aspects guided the transformation process at Omaxe Chowk.

Firstly, modern amenities were seamlessly integrated to enhance the shopping experience and provide visitors with a comfortable market exploration.

Secondly, revitalising local businesses was prioritised, supporting traders and artisans by allowing them to open an outlet at Omaxe Chowk to reach a wider audience and boost their businesses. These include Jung Bahadur Kachori, Kuremal ki Kulfi, Gaya Prasad Paranthe Wale, KDH Chaat, Al Bake, Qureshi Kabab Corner etc.

Lastly, embracing technology became a game-changer, as its integration played a significant role in the overall transformation of Omaxe Chowk. It has implemented tech innovations like Smart Parking, Mobile Apps, Contactless Payments, Digital Signage, Customer Feedback Systems, and Social Media engagement to elevate the shopping experience.

Another challenge Omaxe Chowk had to address was Chandni Chowk’s parking woes, causing inconvenience and frustration for visitors in the bustling commercial area. To address the major parking challenge in Chandni Chowk, Omaxe Chowk partnered with Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD). In partnership with MDC, it developed a state-of-the-art parking space for 2200 cars to ensure a seamless and enjoyable shopping experience for all visitors, alleviating the parking concerns of shoppers in the bustling area.
