KL will unveil its latest high-end shopping mall in August 2010... and around two dozen more malls are coming around !!!
Fahrenheit 88, the former KL Plaza is set to open its doors in the third quarter of this year. It will offer a new retail experience to complement the shopping belt of Jalan Bukit Bintang.
The newly makeover 5-storey shopping mall is expected to house over 200 tenants, most of which will be the hippest, trendiest and most classy couture, information technology and F&B outlets in Kuala Lumpur.
Plans are underway to bring in several international luxury brands into the mall.
The shopping mall is now co-owned and co-managed by Pavilion KL, a world-class shopping mall just across the road.
