TV3 moving out of Bandar Utama???

Local rumours is that Media Prima plans to consolidate its offices and that See Hoy Chan plans more TOWERS in Bandar Utama.

KidZania partnership value set to double
By Roziana Hamsawi
Published: 2011/10/19




PETALING JAYA:Themed Attractions Sdn Bhd, the operator of an educational theme park for kids called KidZania, expects to see the value of its partnership with corporates to double to some RM20 million soon.

To date, Kidzania has attracted eight companies, with Fitters Diversified Bhd being the latest one, committing RM1.7 million to build a child's size fire station.

The other seven marketing partners are AirAsia Bhd, CIMB Group, Honda, Media Prima Bhd, The New Straits Times Press (Malaysia) Bhd and Pos Malaysia Bhd.

Themed Attractions managing director and chief executive officer Tunku Datuk Ahmad Burhanuddin said, "more partners are coming in the next couple of months and by the time we open in 2012, we are hoping to see the value of these partnerships double."


KidZania Kuala Lumpur will open in January at The Curve, Mutiara Damansara, covering over 80,000 sq ft where children from between the age of 4 and 14 will be able to role-play professions such as firemen, reporters, TV producers and directors, pilots or airlines' cabin crew.

Tunku Ahmad said Themed Attactions, owned by Khazanah Nasional Bhd (80 per cent) and Boustead Holdings Bhd (20 per cent), has so far invested about RM80 million in the theme park.

"We are confident that this business will generate a very good rate of return for us, judging from its success in the countries in which it has presence," he told reporters after the signing ceremony with Fitters here yesterday.

KidZania, a franchise from Mexico, is already available in 10 locations including Tokyo, Jakarta, Seoul and Dubai.

Tunku Ahmad expects KidZania to offer employment to over 400 people and attract over 500,000 visitors annually.

Fitters managing director Datuk Richard Wong said under the partnership, the company will equip the fire station with firefighting equipment, materials and safety protection services and products, scaled down to a child's size.

Some changes I noticed:

1. Chicago Rib House will replace Jack's Place
2. T.M.Lewin will replace Liz Claiborne, the other store at The Curve
3. The only standalone FCUK is now closed for good
4. New kiosk called GUESS Watches
5. Many many many new restaurants such as PUTIEN from Singapore and WATAMI from Japan

1Utama is really really busy now especially on weekends....

Lotsa stores that you see at TheGardens and MidValley have opened here such as Hokkaido Ichiba, Oyster King (i know the owner), Ko Hwang, I Love YOO, Ireland Potato (just approved), etc... tea chains like Chatime and ComeBuy have opened, with future ones could be ShareTea and GongCha.

Renovation is section by section, the TGV/Isetan is not completed yet... and you can see 1Utama is expanding UPWARDS (presumably the TGV cinema)

All the stores' renovation are pretty good.. from UNIQLO to A-MATERIAL to BRANDS OUTLET to CHATIME to the new BEST DENKI (new wing) and ESPRIT store are attracting the crowd. New concept stores for PUMA, LEVI'S, CANDYLICIOUS opening soon...

Also check out the "Ocean-Minded by Crocs" first store and of coz JUSCO, the most popular store in 1U besides GSC. This JUSCO has the first mini DAISO at the lower floors.. so 2 DAISO in 1U.

Also drop by at the new Food Republic at the link area with New Wing.

Oh FCUK moved opposite to a new location, a smaller store... expect some surprises when someone takes over their previous location....

Well, now that the FCUK lot is empty, I'm hoping for something upmarket to open at this large space... Something like, say, Burberry, Emporio Armani (there's already an A|X in 1U), Tod's, or even Christian Dior?

Although I'm also wondering what type of high-end boutique will be opening within Isetan a well... The one in KLCC has Dior, Ralph Lauren, and a couple of other nice brands as well...

And TGV seems to be doing really massive renovation, they have taken up the portion of 1U's rooftop car park (at Level 5) and there is now a large steel structure on top. There will be no more driveway to the New Wing from the older one and instead, two large cinema complexes will be facing each other! Good for us cinema-goers, with two mega cineplexes available to choose from...

You forgotten the Kayu Ara land they bought some time back???

I reckon it's next to Se'terra, the new launch in that area - which Glomac says part of Bandar Utama.

Agree with you there mate, reminds me of a more upmarket The Store, with those plain-looking fluorescent lights!

I'm waiting for the opening of Isetan though, to provide an alternative for upper-level departmental store shopping in addition to Parkson...

TANGS opening soon in 1Utama as reported in StarMetro today.

It will join a list of major tenants at 1U including Jusco (Aeon Co.), Parkson, Isetan, Daiso, Uniqlo, Best Denki, Cold Storage, Food Republic, MPH, Popular Bookstore, Toys R' Us, Golden Screen Cinemas, TGV (plus an IMAX screen).

BUCC will also look into redeveloping TV3 site and the vacant land opposite it.

Remember this project?

It will be launched this weekend (by invitation) with a rendering that include 2 towers (no not Tropicana Office Towers)!!!

Watch out for the new rendering.

Well, JUSCO is not meant to be a high-end supermarket + department store. It is in fact a contemporary one cater to the majority middle market. One may not be very impressed with the design but it attracts the most crowd with long queues at the supermarket checkouts on weekends & a substantial crowd at the department store.

If there is a place for TANGS, it should be opening on the 1st & 2nd floor of the New Wing, where Wh, Lovely Lace & Best Denki used to be.

And if BUCC is redeveloping TV3 since I heard TV3 is moving out, then the new development should be linked to 1 Utama mall & the One World Hotel and integrate it with the MRT station to provide convenience to commuters!

Wow, now Tangs is coming in to 1Utama, that's really good news... Looks like this presently quiet area on the 2nd and 3rd levels (First & Second Floor) will be brought back to life when they open doors soon!

And wait a minute, did patchay say that TGV 1U will come with an IMAX screen? I thought it will only be at the the Sunway multiplex, or did they just announce the second location recently (and I missed the news )?
