UDA Holdings to give Plaza Angsana RM15m facelift

JOHOR BAHRU (Jan 17): UDA Holdings Bhd will spend RM15 million to give Plaza Angsana, a popular shopping complex here, a facelift.

Chairman Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed said the project would be undertaken in two stages with the first involving external renovation works costing RM8 million.

Another RM7 million would be spent in the second phase, focusing on replacing the lights and floors as well upgrading the food court, he said.

"Tender for the first phase will open in two or three weeks and we expect the uprading work at Plaza Angsana to take a year to complete," he told reporters when attending the company's community programme at Taman Sinar Harapan here on Tuesday.

Nur Jazlan said other shopping malls of the same age as Plaza Angsana had undergone upgrading works and UDA Holdings had to do the same so that Plaza Angsana could remain competitive.

The company was also looking for investors for the Angsana 2 project which would be developed at the parking lot next to Plaza Angsana, he said.

The project was expected to cost between RM200 million and RM250 million, he said. — Bernama
