Ingka Centres, part of the Ingka Group, has today revealed plans for a major new IKEA anchored mixed-use development in Gurugram, a city southwest of New Delhi, in the state of Haryana.

Reflecting the local community’s need for more than shopping, the new meeting place will set the standard for the next generation of sustainable mixed-use destinations, acting as a lively gathering place for leisure, entertainment and retail in one of the world’s fastest growing markets.

Ingka Centres 52nd meeting place will offer a vibrant mix of hospitality, food and beverage, ‘edutainment’ learning spaces, alongside a wide retail offer anchored by an IKEA store. It is being developed to act as a local community hub, with spaces for festivals and exhibitions throughout the year.

The new meeting place will be developed under the new Livat brand, a Swedish word that means ‘a lively happening’ and reflects Ingka Centre’s vision to create a better everyday life by providing easy access to wellbeing, a sustainable lifestyle and belonging, while meeting everyday needs. The brand name is connected to the company’s Swedish heritage and shares common roots with the IKEA vision and values.  

Cindy Andersen, Ingka Centres Managing Director, commented: “We are on a journey to reach more people through more developments in more markets. India is an exciting opportunity for us and our partners to bring new experiences to customers and to develop meeting places that bring value to communities and the planet.”
