MyTOWN, Cochrane, Cheras, Pandan

KUALA LUMPUR: MyTOWN Shopping Centre announced 14 confirmed anchor and minor anchor tenants for its 1.1 million sq ft shopping centre on Jalan Cochrane at a signing ceremony here yesterday.

The confirmed anchor and minor anchor tenants are IKEA, Parkson, Golden Screen Cinemas, Village Grocer, Best, Zara, Uniqlo, Mango, Spotlight, Celebrity Fitness, F.O.S, Food Junction, Kids e World, Al-Ikhsan and MPH Bookstore.

MyTOWN Shopping Centre is a 5-level shopping centre with approximately 400 retail stores jointly developed by Boustead Holdings Bhd and Ikano Pte Ltd.

Boustead Ikano Sdn Bhd director, Datuk Koo Hock Fee, said he was pleased with the positive response from retailers given that the shopping centre is still under construction.

Cheras is a great place to live and we know its residents want more services closer to home. Our line up of tenants will bring new shopping and dining experiences to residents in the area, as well as [those from] Ampang, Kuala Lumpur city centre and beyond,” said Koo. MyTOWN Shopping Centre is scheduled to open in the last quarter of 2016.

Ikano Pte Ltd shopping centre director Thomas Malmberg said the shopping centre’s features have been carefully planned and discussed with tenants to present an “optimum customer journey”.

“We are excited to present unique concepts as we want people who walk into MyTOWN Shopping Centre to see and feel the difference when shopping or dining with us,” he said.

Koo believes that when the future Cochrane underground MRT station is connected directly to the shopping centre’s basement retail level, MyTOWN could be one of the most popular malls in the city.

“Besides being well connected by public transport, the shopping centre is also accessible from major highways, such as New Pantai Expressway, KL-Seremban Highway and Middle Ring Road 2, as well as a new direct access ramp from the Maju Expressway,” Koo said.
