The mallis just opposite mid valley mega mall which is also one of Malaysia’s largest retail developments where you can come across a wide variety of cost effective clothing. The entire complex is basically a mixed development comprising of 4 towers, a 5 star hotel 2 residential blocks and a huge office space. The mall opened its doors to the people in the year 2007 and although understated it is an architectural marvel. There are quite a few noticeable design features in the mall that make the mall look quite clean and open. There is also a state of the art theater which is crowded most of the times. The lower ground floor of the mall has been dedicated to a food court where you can indulge yourself in local as well as western specialties.
