The JWP, which was created as a center for entertainment, shopping, and eating, will be home to a number of international businesses making their Indian debuts. These brands include Rimowa, EL&N Café, Pottery Barn Kids, Samsung Experience Center, Giorgio Armani Café, and Balenciaga.

It is projected that by 2027, there would be 195 billionaires, up from 161 in 2022.
