Dug out an old article written one half year ago…
Adjacent to its older sister Bangsar Village 1, BV 2 is the slightly newer addition to the Bangsar shopping scene. The shopping centre opened its doors in January 2007-houses less common designer brands and inherently quirky eateries and cafes.
Visibly outstanding is Delicious café with its hanging white bird cages, located at the corner of the shopping centre with a street-view of Jalan Telawi. Spanish high street label Zara has a store here for women and there is a smaller version of the massive bookstore Borders, called Borders Express. BV 2 has a Celebrity Fitness outlet for adults and a Kizsports & Gym for the young ones. The latter has a rooster of programs that combines education with fun and fitness to aid children’s learning.
For a high end shopping center it has to compete with The Gardens, Star Hill, KLCC and Pavillion, just to mention a few. So human traffic is not the main factor for profit due to the higher margin. With good human traffic, for sure the profit will be generous.
Any mall I guess Human Traffic is one of the Key Success Factor if not the deciding factor.
What caught my attention is the doors of BV2 are tilted doors. Many school profess that they know the secret of Door Tilting so let’s investigate why the original Master have done this and how was the effect for this mall that has been opened for 5 plus years.
