Pavilion Damansara Heights Mall, a significant component of the Pavilion Damansara Heights integrated development, has officially opened its doors to the public with the launch of its highly anticipated first phase.
This initial phase introduces visitors to a meticulously curated selection of specialty stores, diverse dining experiences, and essential lifestyle services. The progressive openings planned for the coming weeks will eventually welcome around 100 outlets by the end of October, ensuring a vibrant and bustling environment.
The mall’s grand entrance, known as the ‘Pavilion Crown,’ was brilliantly illuminated during the opening ceremony. This stunning feature is adorned with 2,888 Murano-glass technology crystals, a creation by the award-winning lighting design and glass manufacturing company, Lightsculptures. What’s more, the façade is crafted with recyclable glass, symbolizing Pavilion Damansara Heights’ commitment to sustainability. This commitment is further underscored by the recent Green Mark certification awarded by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Singapore.
Datuk Joyce Yap, Chief Executive Officer (Retail) of Kuala Lumpur Pavilion Sdn Bhd, expressed confidence in unveiling phase one. She cited improved connectivity in the area, the upcoming festive season, and the recent handover of eight corporate office towers and the impending delivery of residential towers as key factors driving this decision.
“With surrounding affluent neighborhoods like Bangsar and Damansara Heights, as well as a growing community of nearby residents and office workers eager for access to basic needs, convenient lifestyle services, and dining options, we anticipate a strong launch,” said Yap.
Pavilion Damansara Heights has already completed and handed over eight of its nine corporate towers and three residential towers. This has significantly increased the immediate on-site population by approximately 26,000 people.
With approximately 80% of the mall’s lettable space already committed in phase one, the opening of Pavilion Damansara Heights Mall reflects renewed confidence in Malaysia’s economy. The nation is currently experiencing stable interest rates, controlled inflation, and a renewed focus on attracting international tourists.
Yap expressed optimism for further growth in 2024, citing Malaysia’s positive economic growth forecast of 4.3% by the World Bank. This forecast is attributed to expected tourism recovery, improved global economic conditions, and the anticipation of a consumer-friendly budget that will stimulate domestic demand.
Pavilion Damansara Heights is strategically located for accessibility, with connections to major highways like the SPRINT Highway, DUKE, Penchala Link, and Federal Highway. It is also adjacent to the Pusat Bandar Damansara MRT station, making it easily accessible for both office workers and residents in the Pusat Bandar Damansara area.
“Pavilion’s DNA has always been linked to delivering a comfortable and convenient shopping experience with quality services, complementing the design and architecture of the space, which incorporates the latest trends and demands of the retail market,” explained Yap.
Nestled in the charming neighborhood of Damansara Heights, the mall, upon full completion, will span across six floors, offering unparalleled dining experiences, retail options, entertainment, and leisure activities. Pavilion Damansara Heights is poised to become the ultimate customer-centric destination.
“With the opening of Pavilion Damansara Heights Mall, we look forward to enhancing the value of surrounding neighborhoods—a destination to inspire and connect the community,” concluded Yap.
Pavilion Damansara Heights is a freehold development that seamlessly integrates corporate towers, luxury residences, and a retail mall. It is the result of a joint venture between Pavilion Group and the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB), one of the world’s largest institutional investors and CPPIB’s first direct real estate investment in Malaysia. Puan Sri Cindy Lim, Executive Chairman of Pavilion Group, was a distinguished guest at the unveiling ceremony.
