By 2012, we will welcome yet another lifestyle-themed "Megamall". This time it is in the KL Sentral locality.
Nu Sentral will consist of a new 7-storey shopping mall and an adjoining 27-storey office tower, located adjacent to the KL Sentral transportation hub and along Jalan Tun Sambanthan.
Nu Sentral is part of a multi-billion "Lot G" integrated development that will also include another 2 office towers and a boutique hotel standing beside the mall.
The mall will be linked to Stesen Sentral, a nearby monorail station, nearby office towers and the proposed integrated station for a new Mass Rapid Transit line linking Kota Damansara and Cheras.
Nu Sentral will also be Kuala Lumpur's first "green" shopping mall by adopting internationally recognised building standards as well as implementing environmental-friendly and energy saving features.
Natural daylight will be brought in by a series of "skylight boxes" randomly placed at the roof of the atrium.
Above the 7-storey mall, there will be a 2-acre sky park, a megaplex (cinemas) and leisure space for cafes, open air events and concerts.
The "rooftop" entertainment concept will surely be the talk of the town when it opens.
Nu Sentral is destined to be a new shopping paradise in Kuala Lumpur, with plans already underway for many more shopping malls around the city centre such as the large-sized mall nicknamed as "Vision City Forest in the Mall".
(I don't know but KL seems to be competing with Singapore and Bangkok when it comes to shopping malls?)
Nu Sentral is already under construction before the launch yesterday.
