KUALA LUMPUR (March 4): Sungei Wang Plaza Management Corp said it's business as usual for the popular shopping mall on Jalan Bukit Bintang here that it manages, reiterating that its operation is unaffected by the temporary closure of Bukit Bintang Plaza (BB Plaza) that is located next door.
It issued a statement today following rumours that Sungei Wang Plaza is closing down due to BB Plaza’s redevelopment, the latter of which is owned by UDA Holdings Bhd.
"Sungei Wang Plaza will remain open and continue to serve our shoppers during BB Plaza's redevelopment period," said Sungei Wang Plaza Management Corp in the statement.
"We are committed to feature interesting and unique tenants along with exciting promotional activities and events," it added.
However, it noted that the connection between BB Plaza and Sungei Wang Plaza will be closed.
"(As such,) the public is encouraged to access through our main entrance facing Jalan Sultan Ismail, secondary entrances at Jalan Bulan and monorail entrance at Level 1," said the company.
Today, Sungei Wang Plaza, which opened its doors to the public in 1977, houses 1,000 shops.
