Voided Feng Shui

Why is it some malls are not able to perform or badly perform as in drawing in crowds? Is there a Feng Shui reason behind? We know that in Kuala Lumpur, there are malls with more than 20 years and yet holds high rental yield and full of crowd. Is it because purely due to location?  Today we investigated 2 such places in Kuala Lumpur.Void is a phenomena in feng shui whereby the building is in a position that is really bad Feng Shui.

The Glades, Putra Heights

The Glades Plaza was built as part of the complimentary for it’s gated Glades bungalow units back Quarter 4 of 2013. Photos taken this year shows that no business could survive there except their property sales office.Why can it be that bad? A property developer that is top 10 in Malaysia and it’s Feng Shui was heavily promoted by an internationally famous Feng Shui master from Kuala Lumpur, why then it can be in such sad state?A few business tried to open there but closed down not long after. The last being a cafe.Is it due to poor marketing efforts or was played down by a hidden hands of Feng Shui?What was possibly missed out in the Feng Shui assessment? Gone were the days where bus load of students enthusiastically measuring with their new luopans that I vividly recalled while passing by back then.The sad truth is that many behavioral economists know very little about psychology. – Richard Thaler

Sad Mall

Summit mall USJ has been opened for more than 20 years. Its a Sitting East Facing West property 卯山酉向 build around 1997-1998. Flaking this mall is a big office block and SEGI college and Summit Hotel.

Old view of Summit

About August of last year, it had a new face lift inside as well as outside the mall. They also lit up the parking bays which is commendable.

Upgraded Facade

Sadly today, after more than 1 year, Jan 2018, it has not improved in terms of crowd pulling. The simple reason is because the people factor of this mall is damaged.

Changed few major tenants, supermarket to B point and now Homedec. Many shops with some for as long as 17 years restaurant has closed down or moved out.

At this time where the economy is not so favorable, new tax laws, tougher business environment, new malls sprouting out nearby, it is understandable businesses are struggling. On hind side, it is still better then The Strand or the previous Subang Avenue and the USJ 19 mall.

The Discussion of Two Malls’ Feng Shui

Business Feng Shui

Back in mid 2012, I was having a discussion with one of my senior since we both stay in vicinity. The discussion was focused on feng shui since this is out common denominator. Both of them was opened to public by end 2012.

Recently nearby our place there are two malls recently started operations. The first to start was One City Mall (managed & built by MCT) and months later The Main Place later started (managed & refurbished by BinaPuri).

Some background information, One city has many new features of a mall such as sky bridge, a large gym, and cinema (closed now), a 4 star hotel, Maybank, SoHo and is centered on business / office mall. Most of the restaurants are also the high end.

On the other hand, Main Place is of a smaller scale and has the more traditional features of a shopping mall with a grocer, apparels, pharmacy, fast food chains, book store, toys r us to name a few outlets.

SouthGate Mall – Good Door But Poor Business ?

I was at South Gate Mall due to a wrong turn and decided to wait for a friend there while he comes over.

This mall is in the heart of the city and situated on a busy road, Jalan Chan Sow Lin. Oh yes, this place is famous for their curry fish head dish. This same road houses many automobile sales outlet and some old factories and businesses. However, I was rather surprised that despite it’s location, the business is really brisk and lack human traffic. One of the most important criteria for mall’s success is the human traffic isn’t it?

So I whip out my mobile and I did some quick research over the internet about this mall. This mall was built by Mah Sing Group (the Mah Sing building was just opposite) and they are one of the top few developers in Kuala Lumpur albeit pretty young in this industry. In the midst of searching, I happened to read a post on this mall commented/researched by a San He Master.
