MyTown Shopping Centre has opened in the Kuala Lumpur CBD as a joint development by Boustead Holdings and retail banker Ikano.
It features 1.6 million sqft (148,644 sqm) of retail space (more than 400 stores), an alfresco dining area and a park.
Anchor tenants include the biggest Ikea and Zara stores in Malaysia, Malaysia’s first Best flagship, Food Empire, Golden Screen Cinemas, H&M, Parkson Department Store and Village Grocer.
Its two-acre (0.8ha) Town Park has been set aside for community events. It includes ramps and tracks for rollerblading and skateboarding. A Sunken Garden features amphitheater-style.
MyTown is the first shopping centre in Malaysia to feature Soundscapes – special compositions and custom designed sounds to offer an immersive environment in key locations.
GM Joakim Hogsander describes the centre as a lifestyle mall. “We have created a special customer journey through our choice of tenants, design and experience.”
MyTown has been awarded green building status by the US Green Building Council (USGBC) and Malaysian Green Building Index.
