KUALA LUMPUR: Lot 10 shopping centre expects to see a 15% increase in shoppers on the completion of its renovations this year.
Joseph Yeoh, vice-president of YTL Land Development Bhd, the property arm of YTL Corp, said accessibility by public transport would be one of the key drivers in attracting shoppers to the 26-year-old mall.
The iconic green landmark in Bukit Bintang is strategically located at the junction of two key roads, Jalan Bukit Bintang and Jalan Sultan Ismail.
"On average, about five million commuters pass through the Bukit Bintang station every year. The monorail station is connected to the Lot 10 building, and we will also have the new mass rapid transit station, which will bring in many commuters right to our doorsteps," he told Bernama.
He said the renovations were scheduled to be completed in the last quarter of this year.
Yeoh said more visitors from countries with strong currencies were expected to visit Kuala Lumpur this year to shop and dine.
"These were some of the driving factors for our Lot 10 revamp," he said.
With the revamp, Lot 10 also expects an increase in the number of shops available.
Yeoh said the shopping centre aimed to attract the young and technology-savvy consumers. - Bernama
