15/05/2012

After starting construction in 2009, and with over six million man hours worked, the first phase of Setia City Mall opens to shoppers this Thursday 17 May. A holistic lifestyle destination, the new mall includes a 10.5 acre park, alfresco dining precinct, water jet plaza, children’s play facilities and a huge range of leading local and international retailers. Setia City Mall is located in Setia Alam, Shah Alam, just off the NKVE.

To celebrate the opening, Setia City Mall is giving shoppers the chance to win one of 4 weekly prize packs and a shopping spree at the mall worth RM25,000 when they spend over RM150. The weekly prize draws will culminate with the shopping spree being awarded on 23 June, coinciding with the Grand Launch of the mall.

Setia City Mall is anchored by a 120,000 square foot Parkson department store, Fitness First, Harvey Norman, MPH Bookstore, Daiso, Courts and the very first Urbanfresh supermarket. In addition, Golden Screen Cinemas and Wangsa Bowl will be opening in late June.

Fashion retailers include Uniqlo, Zara, Guess, Esprit, La Senza, ALDO, Nichii, Padini Concept Store, F.O.S and Brands Outlet. Dining retailers include Delicious, Sakura Kristal, TGI Friday’s, Starbucks, Carl’s Jnr., Subway, Sushi Tei, McDonalds, KFC, Papa Rich and Dragon-i. Other retailers at the mall include Machines, Petsmore.com, The Body Shop, Caring Pharmacy, Pandora and Royal Selangor.  

Commenting on the opening, Robert Spinks, Setia City Mall’s Development Director, said: “From the outset, Setia City Mall has been designed to be a destination for all and a place that meets the changing needs and heightened expectations of shoppers. From the easy access and simple design of the car park, to an excellent range of local and international retailers, Setia City Mall is a great place to escape, close to home.”   

Philippa Holmes, Setia City Mall’s General Manager, added: “We are beyond excited to welcome shoppers on Thursday. Setia City Mall is a destination for the community, a place where people can spend time with family and friends, shop, dine, play and be entertained. Our team is ready with open arms. Come one, come all.”

Setia City Mall is also an environmentally responsible place to shop, having provisionally achieved Singapore’s Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Green Mark Gold Award, the first mall in Malaysia to receive such an accolade. Key green initiatives include a high efficiency air-conditioning system, implementation of an integrated building energy management system, natural daylight in the mall concourse and car park areas and energy efficient escalators and lifts.   

A joint venture between S P Setia and the Asian Retail Investment Fund, a wholesale fund managed by global property and infrastructure group, Lend Lease, the mall has been built using a mix of exceptional local knowledge and international best practice.
