WORK on the countrys largest Jaya Jusco mall in Bandar Bukit Tinggi, Klang, is on track and the outlet is expected to open for business according to schedule in December.
Construction of the AEON Bukit Tinggi Shopping Centre began about a year ago. The giant structure taking shape on a 26ha plot of land in Persiaran Tengku Ampuan Rahimah is already making an impact in the area.
We are working round the clock and Im happy that we are keeping to schedule.
You can see the walls are up and I believe it will be ready for business by the end of the year, said Lai Yeng Fock, executive director of WCT Land Berhad, which owns the mall and the land on which it is sited.
While members of the public were keen to know when the mall would open, he said, many business enterprises were booking trading lots in the shopping centre.
Lai said the mall would cater to the needs of middle- and upper-class shoppers from Klang South and other nearby vicinities, including Banting, Shah Alam and Subang Jaya.
He said the shopping complex was the third largest Jaya Jusco outlet, after two others in Japan.
It would occupy a total gross area of 2.1 million sq ft with a built-up area of 1 million sq ft.
It will add colour to this part of the town and contribute towards the economic welfare of the Klang people, he added.
