Over in Putrajaya, phase one of IOI City Mall is set to be the largest mall in the south of Klang Valley with 1.35 million sq ft of nett lettable area.
Upon completion in the fourth quarter of 2014, the mall with contemporary architecture will boast 350 specialty shops and four anchor tenants. IOI City Mall head of marketing and leasing, Chris Chong said the mall, designed by RTKL International Ltd, would have an abundance of natural light and offer a view of the 18-hole Palm Garden golf course.
Located within the IOI Resort City, the mall will house 80 food and beverage outlets, popular fashion brands, indoor theme park, cinema, bowling centre and a full-size ice rink.
“The fact that we are in a location without any other regional mall is a unique feature. IOI City Mall will be an alternative to shopping in the city centre, catering for 1.8 million people within a 20-minute drive,” Chong said.
He added that safety and security within the development would be the priority of the mall management.
