New retail destination at Solaris Dutamas

Artist’s impression of Solaris Dutamas.

A sophisticated retail experience awaits city folks at Solaris Dutamas. The almost completed integrated development by Sunrise Bhd will interweave arts and culture with leisure shopping and dining.

In a strong departure from conventional shopping malls that offer more of the same retail chain stores, Solaris Dutamas, a 17-acre hub just 500m off Jalan Duta, aims to inject a “heart” into Kuala Lumpur’s shopping landscape through a unique, art-inspired retail concept.

This bold move entails fusing arts and cultural activities with urban shopping. The emphasis is on one-off retail shops with fresh concepts and unique merchandise. At Solaris Dutamas, visitors will experience the pervasiveness of art and culture in the shops within the retail centre as well as throughout the entire development including the streets and parks.

The driving force behind the art and design theme is the public arts and cultural platform called MAP (Making Art Public). It serves as a meeting point between artists, curators, critics and the public. Its facilities include the White Box, an open exhibition gallery and the Black Box, a 200-seater experimental theatre. First launched on March 27, these public access spaces will host activities ranging from art and cultural exhibitions, theatre performances, film screenings, lectures, seminars and workshops, poetry readings and other community based arts.

Almost ready…
Solaris Dutamas comprises a grade A office tower, office suites, shop offices and serviced apartments that are fully sold, as well as a retail centre. The project, first launched in October 2006, is nearing completion with most of the components already handed over for occupation.

The retail centre, scheduled for opening first quarter of next year, will offer 335,000sq ft of net lettable area with over 200 retail lots. The development has more than 5,000 carpark bays and is strategically located near the courts of justice complex, federal Government offices and prime residential suburbs including Mont’ Kiara, Hartamas, Bukit Damansara and Bangsar.

Sunrise Bhd will be unveiling this exciting retail concept to select retailers at a by-invitation-only launch event later this month.
