Bukit Bintang Plaza has been around for quite sometime alrready - frm the 70s! Its has underwent few makeovers over the years to make it more contemporary. It is adjacent to Sg Wang Plaza & accross the street frm Lot 10.

Currently, tenants/shops there include Metrojaya Dept Store, Starbucks, Guardian, MPH, Tangs Studio (taken over space left vacant by 1 of the ex-tenant, Mark & Spencer), Zang Toi, Shakeys Pizza and some other smaller shops.

REDEVELOPMENT OF BB PLAZA | Kuala Lumpur (Bukit Bintang) | 60 fl | Pro

UDA to spend RM25m on BB Plaza upgrade

July 28 2007


UDA Holdings Bhd (UDA) plans to invest RM25 million to upgrade BB Plaza on Jalan Bukit Bintang in Kuala Lumpur.

"The upgrading process will start in February next year and it will involve beautifying the building, rearranging business lots, repairing the toilets and signages," UDA managing director Datuk Jaafar Abu Hassan said in a statement.

UDA is now at the final stage where it is about to finalise the design before starting the project.

This project will create more business opportunities. It will also provide a more modern look for the building which is located at an exclusive area.

"We will provide an escalator from the parking lot to the business lot, enhance the lighting and upgrade the mechanical and electrical system," he said.

This would help make the building more competitive and it is expected to benefit 139 tenants at BB Plaza.

"UDA hopes to provide more business opportunities to bumiputera entrepreneurs as to encourage them to compete with others," he said.

UDA also owns other shopping malls like the Pertama Complex in Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman, Plaza Angsana in Johor Bharu and Greentown Mall in Ipoh.

^^ Hahaha........you too crazy about Capitol Hotel liao :lol:

Anyway how to remove a chuck of Sg. Wang? You think this one cake meh? :D

I would think that a skyscraper with a retail podium should be built at the corner of Jalan Imbi and Jalan Sultan Ismail (opposite ParkRoyal Hotel). The retail podium should be connected to Imbi Plaza, Berjaya Times Sq pedestrian bridge and Sg. Wang.....creating a seemless shopping experience! :eek:kay:

^^ Nice! I hope they put more of such screens in BB area! and DBKL should cordon off Jln Bukit Bintang from Pavilion to Hotel Royale Bintang, and area around Lot10 & Sg. Wang at night! Then we will have a mini Causeway Bay! :banana:
