The problem with Malaysia is that as mentioned, most buildings degrade over time. And also no effort (and redtapes) are preventing new developement to integrate properly into the existing area. Bukit Jambul Mall was awesome when it first opened...but now...........its like rojak.

Unlike Singapore where there is a law(I think) that requires the buildings to be maintained adequately. And also, there is a urban developement department that ensure good pedestrian and traffic flow, greenery etc etc. However, the tenants have to contribute money to the sink fund every month or annually

New shopping complex for Penangites next year
Wednesday September 5, 2007
By JEREMY TAN


PENANGITES can look forward to a new shopping complex next yearwhen Phase 1 of Penang Times Square is completed.

Birch the Plaza under Phase 1 comprises a four-storey shopping mall boasting over 300 outlets of dining, retail and service outlets. A further three phases are scheduled for completion by 2012.

The RM450mil project, launched in 2004, is located less than 500m from Komtar, sitting on a 5.3ha site that was once a tin smelting plant.

Ivory Properties Group general manager Chok Keng Vui said Times Square was the most ambitious project the group had undertaken.

He was speaking at the official launching of Birch House, a century old building erected in colonial times, which is now the corporate head office of Ivory Group.

The new office, adjacent to the site of Times Square, was officially launched by Yang di-Pertua Negri Tun Haji Abdul Rahman Abbas yesterday.

Over the last two years, Birch House had undergone a RM2.5mil restoration lasting two years and now returned to its former grandeur.

On another of Ivory’s projects, Moonlight Bay, Chok said over 70% of the units had already been sold.

“We hope to complete the project in three years time,” he said.

Moonlight Bay is a prestigious 6ha gated residential project, with 70 villas overlooking the sea drawing on a unique southern European hillside village concept.

Harvey Norman plans second outlet in Penang
Tuesday September 18, 2007

PENANG: Australian retail billionaire Gerry Harvey is keen to take full advantage of Penang's booming economy by opening a second Harvey Norman outlet in Penang Times Square, after the one at Queensbay Mall.

On his first visit to Penang last Saturday, the 68-year-old founder of the Harvey Norman group was convinced the “Silicon Valley” had substantial growth potential.

“I was told that under the Northern Corridor Economic Region (NCER) a lot of money would be invested here in the next five to 10 years with half of it going into infrastructure. That is very good news for the people of Penang.

“I find this place very interesting with a lot of activities going on. I think it’s moving in the right direction,” he said.

Harvey Norman is a retail chain that offers a wide range of products from electrical, computers and communications and small appliances to furniture and home improvement.

The first RM10mil Harvey Norman outlet, measuring some 70,000 sq ft, opened in Ikano Power Centre in Petaling Jaya four years ago while the second RM5mil 30,000 sq ft outlet in Mid Valley Megamall was launched last November.

The retailer plans to open another outlet each at Sunway Pyramid and Kuala Lumpur's The Pavilion later this year.

Harvey Norman Holdings Ltd also controls other prominent retail chains including Space Furniture which is located in Bangsar Baru, Kuala Lumpur.

Harvey Norman stores are also found in Australia, New Zealand, Slovenia, Ireland and Singapore.

“At Harvey Norman, we endeavour to provide the most current product innovations and advancements from the leading brands. We also strive to provide our customers with quality products and professional service, every day,” stressed Harvey who now sits atop an empire that generates more than A$6bil in annual sales from 200 stores worldwide.

In the next three to five years, the Sydney-based Harvey hoped to expand his business in Malaysia to about 20 outlets.

The first Harvey Norman store was started in 1961 by Harvey and his business partner Ian Norman.

The original store specialised in electrical goods and appliances. Its immediate success prompted Harvey and Norman to seek expansion of the business.
