NEW MALL SET TO CREATE ICONIC RETAIL AND LIFESTYLE DESTINATION FOR KUALA LUMPUR

The Merdeka PNB 118 development was recently launched by Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, paving the way for a striking new icon on Kuala Lumpur’s skyline.

The 118-storey high tower and shopping mall, by Permodalan Nasional Berhad, will create an arresting landmark for the city.

The Buchan Group provided architectural and interior design services for the retail podium of the development which embraces its unique setting and is legible as a destination in its own right. Incorporating a diverse range of experiences over seven levels, the centre will provide an internally inspired retail destination offering a wide spectrum of retail, luxury brands, fashion, accessories, home wares, electronics, dining and entertainment.

Project Principal, Andrew Mackenzie, was honoured to attend the launch ceremony for the development.

“I am thrilled to have been present for the launch of this exciting project and we are very proud to have been involved in the design of the retail podium,” said Andrew.

“The mall’s organic theme with vibrant, cutting edge architecture sets the stage for a unique and inspiring retail and lifestyle experience and we look forward to the delivery of this innovative and iconic new centre.”

A sound and clear retail strategy is critical to the success of the mall and is characterised by a retail diagram consisting of well-located anchor units and appropriately spaced activities. This is reinforced by clear active routing between the anchors along with the use of filtered natural light, lofty public spaces and framed views capturing crisp, clean and modern architecture.

Located alongside Stadium Merdeka and Stadium Negara, a new MRT station and the Merdeka PNB 118 tower, the retail precinct will provide the perfect vantage point for visitors to relax, dine and be entertained.

The development is expected to be completed by 2024.
