New Malaysian mall extension Jumpa @ Sungei Wang opens
Kuala Lumpur’s new retail destination Jumpa @ Sungei Wang has opened.
Jumpa is the revitalised annex block of 42-year-old Sungei Wang, catering to a younger market with a wide range of retail, F&B, and family entertainment options. It combines recreation with sports, carving out play areas for wall-climbing and athleisure activities as well as sporting goods and apparel retailers catering to working professionals and families.
“Sungei Wang is one of the most established shopping malls in Malaysia, maintaining and refreshing its appeal through the years with numerous transformations,” said CapitaLand Malaysia Mall Reit Management GM mall management Lawrence Teh Cheng Poh. “In its latest transformation, we are pleased to present a new experience for shoppers at Sungei Wang as they weave through the old-world charm of eclectic offerings in the main block before reaching the modern and vibrant Jumpa @ Sungei Wang, a stylish gathering place with thoughtfully curated retail offerings and unique concepts.
“We are pleased that Jumpa has received positive response from our tenants, achieving more than 85 per cent in leasing commitment to date. More brands will be announced soon, including a new-to-market anchor tenant.”
Over the past 16 months, Jumpa underwent an RM54.5 million (US$13.02 million) facelift to convert the previous anchor tenant space into specialty stores, and update the facade and interior design of the annex block. The refurbishment project was initiated by CMMT as part of its efforts to revitalise and enhance the appeal of Sungei Wang.
Jumpa @ Sungei Wang features more than 100 stores across six levels, along with a new Little Asia marketplace that invokes a heritage feel with its Peranakan-style printed tiles and open spaces. Urban Street is a curated market area offering limited edition fashion and accessories targeted at young shoppers.
“As part of our efforts to refresh the retail experience at Sungei Wang, shoppers will be able to find creative merchandise and experiential activities at the various workshops held at the Main Creative Hub in Jumpa and organised by Main-main,” said Sungei Wang 2 centre manager Elise Lim. “This is a collaborative effort with Main-main where we provide the support to a group of entrepreneurs in showcasing their offerings.”
