Mall-in-a-park first of its kind in Malaysia

Two Malaysian actors plan to open a shopping mall within a park in October next year, said to be the first of its kind in Malaysia.

Dubbed an outdoor living mart, the project will occupy a land area of 5.9ha located between Puchong, Seri Kembangan and Putrajaya.

The project, dubbed "Garden Explore", will cover seven major zones of outdoor retailing lots, a plaza and entertainment hall, offices, cafes, restaurants and one petting zoo.

"It's the first of its kind in Malaysia but there have been similar developments in China," said Jack Lim, a director of Green Atmosphere Sdn Bhd, at the launch in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

Managing director Nick JM Wong, a former actor, controls the firm while Weng Zheng Steel Bhd chairman Tan Ching Kee is the adviser.

Construction work is due to start after the Chinese New Year next year. The company has not set any revenue target for the pioneer project.

"The gross development value of the project is RM20 million and this does not include the land cost which was leased from Tempo Properties Sdn Bhd," Lim said.

He declined to reveal the leasing cost, which runs for 10 years.

A unique feature of the project is that cars will not be allowed into the area. Rather, visitors will have to walk or cycle their way through the mall.
