After the first postings on the this same subject, this time I will discuss 2 malls that shared the same public facilities which is the KLCC LRT Station. They are the Avenue K and Suria KLCC.
This is the Mall that was opened in 2005 but business has been lukewarm and this lead to reduced tenancy over time and a change was urgently needed to rejuvenate business. https://www.thestar.com.my/business/business-news/2005/06/17/hk-land-city-prop-team-up/
Then in 2013 the management embarked on a courageous move to have a total make over of the mall. They even took this opportunity to take advantage of Feng Shui by engaging a renowned consultancy agency to induce Feng Shui elements into the new mall plan. https://www.thestar.com.my/news/community/2013/09/06/shopping-mall-gets-a-facelift-avenue-k-to-unveil-its-new-look-to-shoppers-next-month/
When they reopened in 2014, the tenancy went up to 80% according to media reports. Fast forward to 2019, the crowd were mainly concentrated on the ground & lower ground floors especially during lunch hours. The other floors was just having light traffic.
It was completed around 1996 / 1997 during the era of Dr Mahathir during his tenure as the Prime minister of Malaysia and the building belonged to the Country petroleum company, Petronas.
In this development, apart from the 2 famous Petronas Twin Towers, there is the Mall (Suria KLCC) and a Philharmonic hall adjacent to it.
It was never known if there were any Feng Shui elements used in the design of this building but some how it was definitely has a much stronger crowd since it’s opening. If you have stories about the Feng Shui design of KLCC, we love to hear from you.Continue reading “The Discussion Of Two Malls – Part 2”
