By creating the newest vibrant destination and generating economic activity for the communities in Klang, Shah Alam, Jenjarom, and beyond, KSL Esplanade Mall, the brainchild of KSL City Management Sdn Bhd (a wholly subsidiary of KSL Holdings Berhad), promises to breathe new life into Klang City, especially Southern Klang. Before its soft opening on May 31, 2023, KSL Esplanade Mall expects to draw more than a million shoppers who live within a 30 to 45 minute drive.
The iconic 650,000 square foot (sqft) shopping mall will contain four floors of retail space, a landscaped park, event space of up to 10,000 sqft, an outdoor eating terrace, and a special section with play area for kids. KSL Esplanade Mall promises “More Than Just A Mall” experiences in an effort to become Klang’s one-stop shopping destination.
Mr. Patrick Khoo, the project director for KSL Esplanade Mall, is certain that the mall will stand out and be well-liked. In a statement released today, Patrick claims, “This is not just another mall.” “Our mall is envisioned as a third place, which is best described as a setting where a person can have a transforming sense of self, identity, and relationships with others. The phrase “third space” refers to three different locations: the house, the workplace, and the mall.
Numerous events, both indoors and outdoors, including competitions, tournaments, light and music display, festivals, and arts and cultural events will be held in support of a community living. We are confident that the “More Than Just A Mall” idea will receive favourable reaction from the neighbourhood and customers, he added.
KSL Esplanade Mall has successfully secured several key anchor tenants to provide a unique shopping experience to its visitors. These tenants include Star Grocer, ENERG X Park, Xctive Kidz, XTROLLER, Good2U Concept Store, Starbucks, ZUS Coffee, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, The Chicken Rice Shop, Nihon Shoku, Uncledon’s, Loon Sing Restaurant, Pets Wonderland, Houzone, One Living, MR D.I.Y, Toy World, Toyworld Amusement Park, TGV Cinema, Happy Fish Swimming School and more to be announced in the near future. At present, the project has achieved approximately 70% occupancy of tenancy.
Excellent Accessibilities From Within & In Between
Southern Klang is now well served by excellent connectivity to the major highways such as Shah Alam Expressway (KESAS), South Klang Valley Expressway (SKVE), and New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE). Visitors to KSL Esplanade Mall can look forward to the improved connectivity with the upcoming Light Rail Transit (LRT3). The LRT3 will provide easy interchange with existing rail systems, such as MRT Bandar Utama, Kelana Jaya Line, BRT Federal Line, and KTM Komuter Port Klang, offering a seamless travel experience.Visitors will be transported along this LRT3 alignment from Bandar Utama to Johan Setia Station, where they will then need to take a 5-minute drive to reach KSL Esplanade Mall. KSL Esplanade Mall will offer complimentary shuttle services as an added convenience to meet the demands of the customers.
“In order to highlight the accessibility, my team has focused heavily on enhancing and strengthening the local infrastructure to ensure a comfortable commute to and from the shopping mall. This involves a project to enlarge the road, installation of additional lamp post, building a brand-new pedestrian link bridge and bus station for the convenience of the general public. We are committed to the sustainable growth of the area, particularly for those who call it home. Our aim is to have a significant impact on the community by providing upgraded amenities, facilities, and job opportunities. By prioritizing the needs of the community, KSL Esplanade Mall aims to become a destination that not only provides a great shopping experience but also contributes to the development of the area”, according to Patrick Khoo.
KSL Bandar Bestari typically consists of semi-detached house, serviced apartment, shopping mall, commercial property, and a four-star hotel that caters to the middle-to-high income community. These notable developments are anticipated to change the neighbourhood and attract greater investment interest. South Klangs’ makeover is about to begin,” he said in conclusion.
