By M. KRISHNAMOORTHY
KUALA LUMPUR: Pavilion KL, a new shopping experience - in line with New York's 5th Avenue, Tokyo's Ginza, and Milan - will be opened at Jalan Bukit Bintang on Sept 20.
The once old Bukit Bintang Girls Secondary School area has given way to Pavillion KL, a seven-storey building, which will have 450 outlets housing shops, food and beverage outlets and urban leisure areas.
The Pavilion's director of centre management John Sironic said designer brands like Aigner, Club Monaco, Coach, Ermenegildo Zegna, Hermes, Hugo Boss, Juicy Couture, Prada and Versace are expected to house their products in this building which is strategically located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur's bustling shopping district.
"The opening of Pavilion KL marks a defining moment in Kuala Lumpur's retail elevation. With Bukit Bintang now complete, Malaysia can reinforce its attraction as a top Asia retail hub.
"Pavilion KL's opening coincides remarkably with Visit Malaysia Year 2007, and we are proud to be part of the shopping euphoria
"Shoppers can enter at the street-level directly to the 3rd floor, and this is all part of the many unique offerings by the new iconic landmark of the Golden Triangle," Sironic added.
Pavilion KL's welcoming ambience with large airy premises framed with high ceilings and wide corridor pavements is complemented by an exciting tenant mix.
It will also have many leisure outlets such as GSC Cinemas, RedBox Plus or Times The Bookshop.
Sironi said that each unique offering at this world-class shopping centre is a highly fulfilling and inspiring shopping and leisure experience.
"Pavilion KL is anchor piece of the world-class urban development comprising two luxury residential towers, a corporate office. Initiallly, the shopping will be opened first," Sironic added.
