(Source: supplied)

Malaysian mall operator, Kuala Lumpur Pavillion, has set the opening time frame for the city’s latest luxury shopping development, Pavilion Damansara Heights Mall, to open in May next year. 

Located in the neighbourhood of Damansara Heights, the development spans more than 1 million sqft and six storeys. The company said more than 70 per cent of the shopping complex’s retail space has been secured by tenants, ranging from F&B players, and luxury brands to lifestyle. 

As of today, 129 tenants have confirmed opening stores in Pavilion Damansara Heights Mall, including Swarovski, Aesop, Harvey Norman, Diptyque, and Food Republic. 

“We will eventually have around 380 retail outlets, making us well-placed to serve diverse needs, ranging from the basic to the most discerning,” said Dato’ Joyce Yap, CEO of Retail at Kuala Lumpur Pavilion. 

“​​The concept of Pavilion Damansara Heights Mall is designed based on an in-depth understanding of the retail market, extensive consumer research, and focus group studies from the early stages of conceptualisation.”

Pavilion Damansara Heights Mall is expected to create approximately 4000 jobs, in addition to various multiplier effects for the economy. The mall targets mid-upper to high-income customers group. 

“The broad reopening of our border and the return of foreign tourists to Malaysia bodes well for Pavilion Damansara Heights Mall and our tenants, as we get ready for our soft opening in May 2023,” Yap said. 

The CEO also said the project will open its doors in May for Phase 1 while the launch date for Phase 2 is to be announced shortly after.
