Forum Mall is a shopping mall in the Bhowanipore area of Kolkata, India. It was initially conceived as an office tower; 80% of the foundation was complete before it was converted into a mall. Currently it covers two-lakh (2,00,000) square feet of area and has 1.25 lakh (125,000) square feet of retail area, and was opened to the public with the launch of Shoppers' Stop. Its opening was credited with turning its neighbourhood from a quiet residential area into an upmarket shopping destination. It has been noted for its excellent layout and signage. The mall is constructed and owned by Rahul Saraf, Chairman of SAPL. The Mall also has a branch in Bhubaneswar named Forum Mart.
The tenants are diverse ranging from retail outlets to entertainment multiplex theatres to dining. The mall offers paging services and a dedicated telephone exchange. As of July 2003, the mall had parking space for 175 cars and planned to increase it to 700 cars in 18 months.
