Kuala Lumpur MRT retail spaces up for grabs

Kuala Lumpur MRT retail spaces – 41 spots at 21 stations – have been put to tender.

The Mass Rapid Transit Corp (MRT Corp) says proposals and bids for the spaces, on the upcoming MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang line, must be submitted by April 18.

Commercial land management director Datuk Haris Fadzilah Hassan says the company hopes to announce successful applicants by the end of June.

About 30 per cent of the units have been set aside for indigenous entrepreneurs, and Haris says the company is seeking retailers for the balance who have “exciting business ideas and services, suitable for commuters with fast-paced mobility and urban lifestyle”.

Small and local businesses are encouraged to apply, and more retail spaces will become available in the future.

The Sungai Buloh-Kajang line will open near the end of this year.
