Green mall for Setia Alam

Almost there: Setia City Mall will be ready by May.

SETIA City Mall in Bandar Setia Alam, Shah Alam has received overhelming reponse with more than 95% of its retail outlet already leased out.

Setia City Mall marketing director Daniel Steffe said the response was good especially since the mall would only open its doors to the public in May.

“Being a neighbourhood mall, we received plenty of feedback from residents in the area through Facebook and Twitter.

“From the feedback, we gave leases to tenants that met our criteria. Like any other shopping centre, Setia City Mall will open from 10am to 10pm daily.

Natural light: The mall offers plenty of light thanks to the skylights.

“Visitors can expect a wide range of offerings including Golden Screen Cinema’s nine-screen cinema, Parkson outlets, a Wangsa Bowl bowling alley, Harvey Norman, Courts, Zara and a Fitness First gymnasium.

“They also will not have to worry about parking as we will provide about 2,700 parking bays,” he said.

“We are also looking at having a karaoke outlet here and there is a park on the ground floor for children to play in. Parents can watch their children from the comfort of F&B outlets such as Starbucks, Delicious, Carl’s Junior and TGIF near the park,” Steffe added.

Key green initiatives in Setia City Mall include a high efficiency air-conditioning system, the implementation of an integrated building energy management system, natural daylight in the concourse and car park and energy-efficient escalators and lifts.

The mall includes a 20% saving in water consumption with rainwater harvesting for landscape irrigation, low-emissivity glazing, bicycle parking bays and bio-composting of organic food waste.

Setia City Mall development director Robert Spinks said he hoped that all the outlets would open at the same time when the shopping center opens it doors.

“It would be great if all the outlets open at the same time.

“Retailers lease each lot from RM6 to RM30 per square foot depending on the area they are situated,” he said,

The Setia City Mall is a 50/50 joint venture between Lend Lease and S P Setia. The RM450mil retail destination has also received Singapore’s Building and Constructrion Authority (BCA) Green Mark Gold Award.

It it the first shopping center in Malaysia to receive the accreditation.

The award is in recognition of the Setia City Mall’s sustainability initiatives, which meet the five evaluation criteria — energy and water efficiency, environment protection, indoor air quality and innovation.
