27.07.2017
Kuala Lumpur, 27 July 2017 – The first major shopping mall in Taman Melawati opened its doors on 26 July 2017. The eight-storey mall house over 250 shops across a net lettable area of 620,000 sq ft and serve an estimated 740,000 people serving neighbourhoods in Taman Melawati, Taman Melati, Wangsa Maju, Bukit Antarabangsa, Ukay Heights, Kemensah Heights and other surrounding areas with 1,900 parking bays. Melawati Mall is conveniently accessible from Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2) or 15-minute bus ride from the Taman Melati, Wansa Maju and Sri Rampai Light Rail Transit (LRT) stations.

Melawati Mall is certified as a Green Building Index (GBI) building with a rainwater harvesting system, energy-efficient lighting, air cooling systems and environment-friendly features.

The focal point of the new shopping mall is the LED façade wall, a design that is meant to evoke the image of Tabur Hills. A 773 square foot family room located at Level 2 is well equipped with fundamental facilities; three nursing rooms, family toilets, diaper changing room, resting area, water dispenser and designated play area.

Anchor tenants include Golden Screen Cinemas, Village Grocer, Padini, Brands Outlet, Coco, Next, FoodEmpire, Toys “R” Us, MPH, KidsZone , Kaison, Sports Direct and Mr DIY, to be followed by Fitness First, Yubiso, SenQ, Daiso, Homes Harmony, Tony Roma’s and many more. Cognisant of its targeted Malay patrons, Melawati Mall has designated a zone on Level 2 for brands like Ashura, Aura Raja Sehari, Rina Salleh, Siti Khadijah and Tucz to form a collective of retailers specialising in Muslimah and Malay ready-to-wear fashion, a sector which has boomed in recent years.

Dining options range from established restaurant chains to new-to-market brands like Wayback Burgers, an American franchise whose first Malaysian outlet will be in Melawati Mall. Adding to the variety are home grown restaurants such as Troka Coffee and Be Sixth, both of whom have staked their claims on Level 6 where a cluster of F&B outlets with spacious balconies make it an ideal spot to take in a meal and a panoramic view of the world’s longest quartz range, Bukit Tabur.

The Centre Manager of Melawati Mall, Kow Shih Li said, “The mall is well received by retailers and we are greatly encouraged by the support, especially during these challenging times. Melawati and the surrounding areas have been underserved for a long time and our tenants are tapping into this pent-up demand for a modern, quality retail offering.” Occupancy is set to exceed 80% by the end of the year. “We are glad that Ms. Read is on board and scheduled to operate in October including much loved favourites such as a new Thai food concept, grocer with the widest range of fresh produce in Malaysia, halal dimsum restaurant, an oceantheme indoor children’s playground, gourmet bakery, a food court, and cinema”, Kow added.

In conjunction with the opening, Melawati Mall has started engaging with the public online since June 2017 with more than 8,000 registration to the opening campaign, www.melawatimallopening.com. Ten thousand gift vouchers and on top of that five winners will walk away with a total of RM5,000 cash vouchers each. The public can still register before the campaign expires on 15 September 2017.
