IOI City Mall set to be the largest in Malaysia with Phase II opening on Aug 25

STRATEGICALLY located at IOI Resort City and just a 30-minute drive from the KL International Airport, the IOI City Mall Phase II is set to be an attractive retail and entertainment hub when it opens its doors on Aug 25,

It enjoys a potential population catchment of 3.1 million people from nearby townships in southern Klang Valley – namely Putrajaya, Cyberjaya, Kajang, Bangi, Sepang, Puchong and Seri Kembangan.

With the opening of Phase II, the mall will have a total of 14 anchor tenants with fresh additions such as AEON, Proton, Nitori and MajuHome Concept joining existing tenants like Lotus’s, Harvey Norman, Parkson, HomePro and GSC among others.

Gourmets can enjoy more than 200 cafés and restaurants featuring the newly added Kenny Hills Coffee, Bife Charcoal Steakhouse and Din by Din Tai Fung.

With the addition of some 300 retail outlets, IOI City Mall will have more than 700 retail outlets in total with sought-after brands such as Michael Kors, Hackett, Braun Buffel and Coach to name a few.

“IOI City Mall is set to become the largest shopping mall in Malaysia with an additional 1 million sqft of net lettable area (NLA), bringing the total NLA of IOI City Mall to 2.5 million sqft. It will lead the way as the nation’s premier shopping and lifestyle destination,” said IOI Properties Group (IOIPG) chief executive officer Datuk Voon Tin Yow.

Beyond retail, the mall presents the addition of IOI City Farm, an 18,000sqft indoor “edutainment” exhibition space that provides family-friendly activities to learn about plants and animals.

Designed with an indoor farm concept to bring the outdoor experience indoors, the new edutainment exhibition consists of three zones for visitors to interact and observe more than 70 species of plants, small cute animals and fishes:

> The Plant zone, known as Green Land, displays aquaponics and carnivorous plants.

> Animal Zone, called Little Rimba, will feature adorable pets such as sugar gliders, hedgehogs, rabbits and fennec foxes.

> Aquatic Zone, known as Fresh Water World, will be showcasing large sturgeons and arapaima from the Amazon.

Phase II will also feature the new IOI Grand Exhibition and Convention Centre, a 40,000sqft pillar-less hall with state-of-the art facilities with a capacity of 2,000 guests for wedding banquets and approximately 3,000 delegates for conferences.

Plus, there will be the IOI Sports Centre – a rooftop sports centre experience with 15 badminton courts and two covered futsal arenas.

These new additions are expected to further elevate existing attractions at the mall such as:

> Icescape Ice Rink, the biggest in Malaysia recognised by the Malaysia Book of Records.

> District 21, a 52,000sqft indoor atrium adventure theme park.

IOI City Mall promotes sustainable initiatives by providing more than 14,000 parking spaces equipped with an automated licence plate recognition (LPR) system. Besides encouraging contactless payment for a more hygienic experience, the system utilises ticketless parking to reduce paper waste and carbon ink printing.

To instil the importance of environmental ethics through green efforts, solar panels have been installed on the rooftop of IOI City Mall in 2020, which has generated 8,533 MWh of electricity, equivalent to carbon emissions reduction of 5,922 TCO2 to date.

It is also equipped with chilled water thermal energy storage (TES) tanks with a combined capacity of 62,000 cubic metres, which contributes to efficient use of electricity and thereby helps to reduce carbon emissions.
