The newest shopping mall in Johor Bahru opens today! And to draw in the crowd, the management of KSL City had invited Singapore celebrities Mark Lee and Apple Hong to be the MCs for the opening ceremony starting at 10am, 12th Dec 2010.
Centrally located at Taman Century which is just a 5 minutes drive away from the Johor Bahru CIQ, KSL City host 300 shopping units with up to 2800 park lots. In addition, MBO Cinemas is due to open a 8-screen cinema on 16 December 2010, augmenting the entertainment experience you can derive from the shopping mall.
Besides MBO Cinemas, key tenants at KSL City includes the following:
1. Tesco Hypermart (Anchor Tenant)
9. Mamy Kids
10. The Face Shop
12. Factory Outlet Store
1. Pizza Hut
2. Toast Box
3. Sushi King
4. Seoul Garden
5. JCO Donuts
7. Seoul Garden
9. Noodle Station
2. Jean Yip
6. Southern Jeju Money Changer
The opening of KSL City may be the final nail in the coffin for Holiday Plaza, which is located just 300 meters away. In addition, the already quiet malls of Danga City Mall (which never seems to take off) and Plaza Pelangi will also be adversely impacted.
When we did our field visit to the mall yesterday,
1. Renovation Work was still not completed, with plenty of touch up yet to be done! For example, the contractors were still trying to fix up the Logos of the mall!
2. Security Guards are already present to marshal the traffic. Hopefully, they will be able to deal with the crowd today.
3. We heard the rumour that all tenants MUST open their shops on the opening day, else they will be fined by the building management.
Our advice is for our visitors to visit the mall starting 20th Dec 2010 when things are more “stabilised” and completed, unless ( in the unlikely scenario) you are a fan of Mark Lee.
To get the directions to KSL City, please refer to the rest of the post.
1. From the Johor Bahru CIQ, go towards the Tebrau Highway.
2. Turn Left at the junction of Plaza Pelangi and you will soon be able to see KSL City on the right
