PETALING JAYA: The fast developing i-City in Shah Alam will have its own lifestyle retail mall – Central i-City Mall – which will introduce Thailand’s retail experience to the growing local retail market.
Set for opening in October 2018, the mall, which has allotted 940,000 sq ft for rent, will showcase many interesting brands that are not available in the country.
I-Bhd, the developer of i-City, is collaborating with Thailand’s CPN Group to introduce the unique Thai retail landscape to Malaysian shoppers.
In addition, I-Bhd aims to offer a new retail landscape and innovative retail experiences for shoppers given that Thai mall concepts have captivated many visitors.
CPN Ventures Sdn Bhd chief operating officer Anthony Dylan said the Asian Economic Community (AEC) and Malaysia’s bustling tourism industry will create a strong business proposition for the mall.
“We will bring in some significant tenants from Thailand that have not expanded outside their home country before,” he added.
Among the mall’s main attractions are its unique retailers and its cosy ambience. It will have 3,000 parking bays and is located close to the Padang Jawa KTM station.
i-City is an ultrapolis development where the commercial, residential and recreation elements are integrated.
The community here would enjoy the ease of having a multitude of amenities within one location.
Dylan said more than 3,000 residences in i-City, including Hill10 residences above DoubleTree by Hilton hotel, will be linked to the first floor of Central i-City Mall, heralding a new lifestyle haven.
To showcase I-Bhd’s tech-furbished residences such as Hill10 Residence, 8Kia Peng, Parisien Tower, Hyde, Liberty Tower and i-Suite, the three-day StarProperty.my Fair (i-City Edition) will be held from June 10 to 12 at the I-Gallery at i-City.
I-Bhd has completed more than 1,000 properties, encompassing various commercial and residential units, with plans to hand over another 3,000 units of mainly residences in the next 12 months.
The projects featured at the fair have set a benchmark for technologically-incorporated homes.
Participants at the fair stand a chance to win a home at the Petaling Jaya Midtown development located at Section 13 here, worth RM557,800, by taking part in the StarProperty.my Win A Home (WAH) contest.
The fair will also feature renowned speakers on property investments and smart home technology.
