Space U8 to open in July 2010

PETALING JAYA: Space U8 in Bukit Jelutong, Shah Alam will open its doors to the public in July 2010. The 4-storey commercial project with a built-up of 700,000 sq ft is built on a hybrid concept of dual frontage, featuring shop offices on the outer frontage with an inner façade of retail outlets.

Developed by Mainstay Development Sdn Bhd, it is touted to be the first project in Selangor to adopt the Shop Unit Mall Office (SUMO) concept, which combines business and leisure under one roof. The freehold project has a gross development value of RM220 million.

Mainstay’s executive chairman Raja Mohd Azmi Raja Razali told that 75% of the retail component has been leased and the company expects full tenancy by May 2010.  It has 232 units with 58 units per floor. As its name suggests, every retail unit offers a generous space larger than conventional shop offices (intermediate unit size is 25 ft x 90 ft while corner & display unit size is 29 ft x 90 ft).

The company is in the midst of signing on a major home deco outlet, a bowling centre, an electrical appliance outlet, a fresh garden market, a specialist medical centre plus new concepts in retail and entertainment that have not been seen in Malaysia, said Raja Mohd Azmi.

Every unit is also designed to face the central courtyard, where Mainstay has spent RM20 million on a lavish water feature.

The project also sports a unique green feature - about 220,000 tyres were installed in the foundation of the premises, which allows SPACE U8 to maintain a comfortable 27 degree Celsius throughout. The layout was also designed to be disabled-friendly.

Creative use of glass and earth tones combined with natural lighting and striking landscaping create a spacious, airy atmosphere. Food and beverage outlets will be located on the ground floor spreading over an open plaza facing the central courtyard.
