The all-new Quayside Mall in Kota Kemuning is set to be the new center of gravity for retail and leisure in Klang Valley’s southern growth corridor with ready access to numerous routes including the Shah Alam and South Klang Valley Expressways, as well as the North-South Expressway Central Link and Kemuning-Shah Alam Highway.

The mall is mindfully crafted with seamlessly connected indoor and outdoor retail outlets across four storeys, including Malaysia’s first organic vertical farming facility within a mall, the waterfront mall features spacious, airy layouts with abundant natural lighting and ventilation, fostering positive social environments in compliance with ongoing Covid-19 safety guidelines.

“Though planned well in advance of the Covid-19 outbreak, Quayside Mall’s design is optimally positioned in Malaysia’s changing retail landscape, favoring open spaces with connections to nature, enhanced air quality, and fresh tenant mixes.

This highlights Gamuda Land’s forward-looking approach and mindful master planning across its developments, ensuring the vibrancy and sustainability of the mall, township and surrounding communities even amid changing retail and property landscapes in the new norm.” said Herbie Tan, Director of Leasing, Retail and Malls, Gamuda Land.

Quayside Mall houses two larger-than-life flamingo statues in its multi-storey central atrium as an emblem of the mall’s design. The flamingo’s distinct plumage also lends its hues to Quayside Mall’s escalators, which catch the eye with striking pink tones, enhancing the vibrant outlook of the mall.

Visitors will be in awe of the waterfront F&B space featuring a panoramic view of the promenade at the pet-friendly central park with an Aurora Rhythms musical fountain display in the central lake greeting visitors at 8 pm daily. F&B brands including Rong Cuisine, Nutz n Boltz, Starbucks, Uncle Don’s, and Union Artisan Coffee are some of the delectable fares found along this wing.
