May 2, 2014
The park, the largest factory outlet shopping mall in Southeast Asia with 25,000 sq. m. of commercial area, hosts 140 outlets offering luxury products, fashion accessories, sporting and outdoor goods, a Japanese specialty store, entertainment centre as well as an amusement park, he said.
“The project marks another significant development of an exciting, much anticipated commercial project under the KLIA Aeropolis Masterplan,” he said in his speech at the outlet’s ground breaking here today.
Also present were Tourism and Culture Ministry secretary general Datuk Dr Ong Hong Peng and Mitsui Fudosan executive managing officer Takeshi Suzuki.
MFMA Development Sdn Bhd, a joint venture company between Mitsui Fudosan and Malaysia Airports, will undertake the construction, tenant leasing, promotions, management and operations of the mall.
“With an investment of RM335 million over three phases, we believe the project will translate to positive returns for the country’s tourism and economy.
“We are honoured to have a trusted partner with Mitsui Fudosan, Japan’s renowned and most reputable real estate and retail property developer,” he said.
Meanwhile Malaysia Airports senior general manager Planning Khair Mirza said: “The people haven’t had an outlet mall like this in the Klang Valley, this mall will be the ideal place for them,” he told reporters.
He said a shuttle bus service from KLIA to the outlet, about six km away, is expected to be provided.
