PETALING JAYA: Naza TTDI Sdn Bhd will be setting up Met Galleria, a RM160mil two-storey upmarket mall, as its first retail component within its KL Metropolis development.
Naza TTDI executive director and chief operating officer Datuk Idzham Mohd Hashim said in a statement yesterday that Met Galleria will have more than 80,000 sq ft of net lettable space, targeted at “shoppers who prefer an atmosphere that is calm, comfortable and harmonious”.
“Met Galleria is designed with future retailers in mind. A unique characteristic of Met Galleria is the double ground floor concept; with one fronting the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC) and the other fronting the High Court.
“Met Galleria caters for the residents of the 616 units of MET 1 Residences, workers from nearby office towers and High Court, the affluent Mont Kiara residents and MITEC visitors.”
At present, 40% of Met Galleria’s lettable area are dedicated to food and beverage, while 20% has been planned for retail concept stores. The remainder of the space will be distributed among anchor tenants, services, and pop-up kiosks.
“All retail lots would have high visibility from either the main road, plaza or escalator. This high visibility feature provides exposure for optimum pedestrian traffic flow, with the double volume space adding to the increase visual connection between the two levels.”
Idzham said the MET Corporate Office Towers is another commercial development currently under construction.
“Developed by Triterra Metropolis Sdn Bhd, The MET is the first Grade A stratified corporate office towers in KL Metropolis, with two towers standing at 30 and 42 floors respectively.”
KL Metropolis is a RM20bil, a 75.5-acre mixed-use development. Commercial buildings aside, MET 1 Residences became the first residential component when it was launched last year, said Idzham.
“With built-up areas ranging from 677 sq ft to 1,613 sq ft, residents of MET 1 Residences will have direct access to Met Galleria. The KL Metropolis Park and MITEC are within walking distance of MET 1 Residences as well.”
