The excitement level in the Melawati area has been pushed up a notch as 11 well-known brands were announced today as anchors and key tenants at the upcoming Melawati Mall – the first major shopping mall in the established and affluent residential district of Taman Melawati, located north east of Kuala Lumpur.  

Melawati Mall is conceived and developed to stand out from other suburban malls and to define new standards for neighbourhood shopping centers in the country with its optimised space planning and contemporary design suited for a bustling catchment of 740,000 residents.  The 620,000 square feet net lettable area lifestyle mall with more than 250 retail shops spread over eight levels of retail floors and 1,900 parking bays is expected to become the preferred destination for shoppers.  

In a ceremony attended by about 200 guests, Toys “R” Us, Village Grocer premium supermarket, Golden Screen Cinemas, Fitness First, MPH bookstore, Padini Concept and Brands Outlets fashion stores, SenQ electrical and electronics goods store, Daiso variety store, Kidz Zone children’s playland and Lifestyle Foodcourt were the 11 brands announced as anchors and key tenants, among those that will be opening in Melawati Mall.  

Due to its unique location and design, Melawati Mall will be a new landmark on the MRR2.  The design encapsulates vertical voids at strategic locations in the façade to allow natural daylight into the mall, providing shoppers with a connection to the surroundings.  Column-free design in the main voids and shopping corridors provide excellent sight lines and exposure for the retail stores.  The intelligent selection of lighting options in atmospheric hues at various levels including the facade and use of dynamically sourced materials work towards providing the exclusive and “wow” experience, making Melawati Mall a preferred destination for the denizens of Kuala Lumpur.   

Living up to the mall's tagline 'City shopping at your doorstep', these household names, alongside other local and international brands, will be bringing the excitement of city shopping to some 740,000 residents in Melawati and surrounding neighbourhoods when the mall becomes operational in the second quarter of next year.   

Optimally sized and uniquely positioned for this neighbourhood, Melawati Mall is targeting middle and upper-middle income families, working professionals, residents in the vicinity and students from nearby schools.  The 13-storey mall has about 620,000 square feet of net lettable area, with more than 250 retail shops spread over eight levels of retail.    

The retail floors are located between two levels of basement carpark and three levels of upper floor carpark with a total of 1,900 parking bays, including “ladies only” and hybrid car priority bays – both of which are nearer to the carpark lift lobbies.  To ensure shoppers can move easily between retail zones, the family-friendly mall is equipped with three sets of escalators per floor and eight passenger lifts.
