Suria KLCC shopping centre is an imposing six-storey building at the foot of the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur city centre. Created in 1999, it was soon the talk of the town because it introduced a new level of style to the city with its wide array of haute couture stores. Likened to Manhattan’s Barney’s and Saks Fifth Avenue, the mall is popular not only for its right-on-the-money location and upscale stores, but also because it has tourist attractions such as Aquaria KLCC and Petrosains, an oceanarium and science discovery centre respectively, targeted at kids. Besides that, the mall is home to the Dewan Filharmonik Orkestra (Malaysia’s first concert hall) and the Petronas Art Gallery.
Suria KLCC is divided into three sections: Ampang Mall, Park Mall and the new Ramlee Mall. With great options for upmarket shopping, anchor tenants at Suria KLCC include major department stores such as a five-storey Isetan, Parkson Grand and Marks & Spencer. Additionally there is a Cold Storage Supermarket and a 12-screen movie theatre (the biggest Tanjong Golden Village outlet in the country).
This is not your average neighbourhood mall – Suria KLCC houses over 320 high-end local and international retailers. Well-known brands available at the mall include Balenciaga, Banana Republic, Coach, DKNY, Jimmy Choo, Kate Spade, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu and Versace.
