Spencer Plaza, is a shopping mall located on Anna Salai (formerly known as Mount Road). This fully air conditioned Mall is the oldest shopping mall in India.
In the year 1863-1864, this first Departmental store in the Indian subcontinent (comprising India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka), was established by Charles Durant and J. W. Spencer.
After a few years, Eugene Oakshott shifted the department store to a new building, which was an example of Indian Indo-Saracenic style of architecture. The building was designed by W. N. Pogson.
In the year 1985, the original building was destroyed in a fire. The present Spencer Plaza was constructed on the same site.
It now comprises 3 phases, Phase I, Phase II and Phase III. The 7-storey building houses a variety of shops spread over 3 floors in 3 phases and office spaces that occupy the top floors.
