KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 12): TA Global Bhd has unveiled DA Square @ Damansara Avenue, Bandar Sri Damansara. Due to be officially launched next month, the group has announced that among the tenants will be Japanese apparel retailer, Uniqlo.
TA Global CEO Tiah Joo Kim said in a press release: “We are honoured to have Uniqlo as our main anchor tenant at DA Square to develop the brand’s first roadside store in Malaysia. TA Global and Uniqlo are natural partners as both possess a deep respect for our crafts and commitment to quality. I believe our partnership will bring to life a shared vision that will alter the landscape of Bandar Sri Damansara and will stimulate the community, vitality and the economy of the neighbourhood and our development. We are thrilled to welcome them on board.”
DA Square has secured 100% occupancy and is anticipating its official launch in December. With a total gross floor area (GFA) of 43,650 sq ft, the development will feature other tenants such as Starbucks, The Brew House, 7-Eleven, Fook Yin Lau, Mr Bento and Victoria 25 Café.
TA Global’s Tiah added: “Though it is a contemporary construction, DA Square will fulfil its purpose as a precursor to Ativo Annexe, offering the public a preview of the many more exciting retail and lifestyle venues that the next phase of our masterplan will bring. We are highly confident that Uniqlo and all our anchor tenants at DA Square will continue to stay and grow with us as the masterplan unfolds.”
Uniqlo Malaysia and Singapore CEO Yuki Yamada said: “Our first roadside store at DA Square @ Damansara Avenue marks our continuous expansion in this market. It is a new type of store for Malaysia that complements our existing network of mall-based stores.
"Our new store is carefully designed to ensure enough space and accessibility for all, including families with children, elderly people and people with disability, and will feature its own car park for our customers. Essentially, the new Uniqlo roadside store will serve as a close-to-home store for customers in Bandar Sri Damansara.”
DA Square forms part of the 48-acre Damansara Avenue in Bandar Sri Damansara, which has a total gross development value (GDV) of RM10 billion. Set to be developed in the next 10 to 15 years, the masterplan will have components such as residential, retail, office towers, a shopping mall, a dedicated sports complex and a performing arts centre.source: www.theedgemarkets.com
