The 6.25ha project will feature a mall 200 retail outlets, 1,500 parking bays, and a four-star hotel with 260 rooms and 490 suites.
The first phase of the RM150mil project will be ready by December while work on the hotel, expected to be completed in 2011, will start soon.
The company’s executive director Colin Tan said the success of Dataran Pahlawan inspired the company to come up with the shopping mall that will carry exclusive brands and the hotel to cater to the increasing number of tourists.
“We hope the mall will turn Bandar Hilir into the Bukit Bintang of Malacca,” said Tan.
Tan said a 17m air-conditioned two-tiered bridge would connect Hatten Square to Dataran Pahlawan.
“There will be shop lots on both sides so our patrons will treat the bridge as a connecting path that is part of mall,” said Tan.
