SPEECH BY DATO’ MICHAEL ONG,
GROUP EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, QUILL GROUP OF COMPANIES
FOR GRAND OPENING OF QUILL CITY MALL
ON SUNDAY 18 JANUARY, 2015
A very good afternoon and a Happy New Year! I hope that 2015 has brought an abundance of blessings for everyone thus far.
On behalf of the Quill Group of Companies, I warmly welcome all of you to celebrate the official launch of Quill City Mall, the “ideal go-to destination” for shopping, lifestyle and entertainment.
We are certainly thrilled to be able to kick-off the New Year on such a high note!
I would like to take this opportunity to extend our deepest appreciation to Dato’ Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz, Minister of Tourism and Culture. Thank you Dato’ Seri for taking time off your busy schedule to grace this occasion. Your presence and support certainly makes this event an extremely memorable one.
We would also like to acknowledge the presence of Datuk Bandar Kuala Lumpur, Yang Berbahagia Datuk Seri Hj Ahmad Phesal Hj Talib and thank him for his instrumental role in the successful fruition of Quill City Mall.
Adding to the dynamic shopping and retail mix of KL is us, the brand new Quill City Mall.
This is a new icon in the heart of KL’s Golden Triangle. It has 770,000 sf of nett retail space fronting the busy and familiar streets of Jalan Sultan Ismail.
Quill City Mall is part of a greater project by Quill. This includes a 36-storey residential building and hotel with service apartments. With these integrated components, the Quill City development is poised to become the ‘next big thing’ in the heart of KL.
Our anchor tenant, AEON brings its first premier departmental store to the city centre.
GSC being the leading cinema operator in Malaysia will equip its 10-screen cinemas at Quill City Mall with the latest digital technologies for the ultimate movie-going experience.
Meanwhile, mini-anchor H&M has opened its latest store in Malaysia at Quill City Mall which will also feature its Homes Division.
Other attractions include the world renowned London toy-store, Hamleys, Next Fashion, Guess, Red Lobster, Food Junction, Celebrity Fitness, Best Denki, Daiso, Neway Karaoke, Original Classic and Marche amongst others.
This Mall has several unique features such as:
· The sky alfresco dining experience over 7 floors.
· Easy accessibility and direct linkages to the Medan Tuanku Monorail station and via an elevated walkway to the Sultan Ismail LRT.
· It has one of the longest retail facades in KL giving valuable brand exposure for our tenants.
I am pleased to note that Quill City Mall has achieved more than 75% occupancy based on nett lettable area. Quill City Mall will serve as an attractive and convenient hub for those living and working in KL’s Golden Triangle and surrounding areas. As the saying goes “whoever said money can’t buy happiness simply doesn’t know where to go shopping!”
Once again, I would like to thank Yang Berhormat Dato’ Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz and our honoured guests for being with us this afternoon. Thank you very much and hope you will enjoy the rest of the programme this afternoon.
Please stay back if you can for our special performance of K-Pop boy band “K-Much”. Their performance will commence at 6.15 pm.
Have a very Happy 2015 and Happy Shopping!"
