The Mid Valley Megamall is a key part of Mid Valley City, one of the country’s largest urban development projects. The mega mall is used to be the country biggest shopping malls before the emerging of larger malls such as the added New Wing of 1 Utama and the extension of Sunway Pyramid. The crown of being the biggest mall in Malaysia is probably no longer with Mid Valley Megamall now.
Being a huge complex comprising an office tower block, a shopping mall, 2 hotels and 30 signature offices, the Mid Valley Megamall is a massive shopping center with gross built-up areas totaling 4.5 million square feet (420,000 m2). It has about 430 shops on five and a half floors. It has five anchor tenants; Carrefour, Jusco, Golden Screen Cinemas, Metrojaya and Harvey Norman. It also houses an 18 screen Cinema. Then there is a state-of-the-art bowling centre, a One-Stop IT Centre, two mega food courts and also a mega bookstore called MPH.
The Mid Valley Megamall is linked through a bridge to another shopping mall called The Gardens which was completed in 2007. The Gardens is also a popular shopping mall with massive retail space and state-of-the-art stores. However, not many know about this bridge, though, as it is hidden by Oasis, one of the main food courts in the Megamall, which probably contributes to the high contrast between crowds of the two shopping centers.
The high volume of visitors to the Mid Valley Megamall and its prosperity is said to be contributed by the excellent feng shui the mall is having. One of the unique architectures of the Mid Valley Megamall that contribute to good feng shui is the atrium roof that is shaped like a “bagua”. The “bagua” is a powerful feature in the Chinese culture that is used extensively for good feng shui purposes.
In addition to being a super mall for shopping purpose, there are a couple of places of worship that are housed in the mall. One of them is a praying place for Muslim (surau) that is situated next to Jusco. There is also a church called the “Calvary Charismatic Centre” – Assembly of God which provides Worship & Celebration Service at Level 8 at 10.00AM every Sunday. Moreover, there is also an existing Hindu temple, the Sri Devi Shakti temple, incorporated into the mall on the southeast side, in exchange for the right for the developer to build in the airspace above the temple.
The two main anchor tenants of the Mid Valley Megamall are Jaya Jusco and Metrojaya. Moreover, it also houses a 48,300 square foot (4,500 m²) convention centre and it is situated adjacent to a 646 room business hotel named Cititel Midvalley and 30 units of exclusive 11 storey signature offices. A second hotel, Boulevard, opened in mid 2005. It has 390 rooms.
Some of the awards that the Mid Valley Megamall has won over the past years are Best Shopping Complex Award 2000 by Tourism Malaysia and Best Retail Development Award 2001 by FIABCI Malaysia. All in all, the Mid Valley Megamall is definitely a must-go lifestyle shopping center if shopping is your favorite activity.
