Avenue K mall near KLCC anticipates welcoming a high-profile tenant under its roof soon: global fashion chain H&M.
The mall’s owners have invited the media to an unveiling of the new anchor tenants next week. According to the invitation, “A notable highlight would be H&M where their anticipated outlet at Avenue K will possibly be one of the most talked about in the region.”
The mall has been undergoing renovation in the last few months, in anticipation of a major revamp. Much of the revamp is being undertaken by Singaporean retail and property consultancy company, Synergistic Real Estate Management & Network Pte Ltd. The track record of some of its executive directors include Marina Center and Junction 8 in Singapore, as well as Gurney Plaza and Great Eastern Mall in Malaysia, according to the company’s website.
Targeted to “the aspirational population and trend-setters in the Klang Valley”, the new Avenue K aims to be the city’s trendiest destination for shopping, dining and entertainment. It will see dedicated foyers for fashion, entertainment, and F&B with the new concept of “Make friends, create trends”.
Even though the mall, first completed in 2005, enjoys an inimitable location next to Kuala Lumpur’s top landmark–KLCC–and direct access from the KLCC LRT station, it has historically suffered from low occupation and footfall, with tenants such as Metrojaya having entered and left the building.
