A FOUR-in-one RM450mil project is expected to be fully operational by the first quarter of next year in Subang Jaya.
Situated in SS16 near the Subang Jaya KTM station, The Empire Gallery Subang Jaya consists of a five-storey shopping gallery, 210 Soho suites, 12-storey office tower, and a 13-storey boutique hotel.
The total gross built-up area is 0.46mil sq metres with four levels of basement car park, providing 15,000 parking bays.
In his speech at the recently held topping-off ceremony, Mammoth Empire Holding Sdn Bhd managing director Datuk Sean Ng said: “The vision was founded on the belief that a niche destination as Empire Shopping Gallery would be a valuable add-on to enhance the overall strength of the retail precinct in this part of Subang Jaya.
“Our foray into this project will complement and enhance the presence of other established malls such as Subang Parade and Carrefour to offer better varieties and choices in shopping, travel, business and lifestyle needs.
“The Empire Hotel Subang is a homegrown boutique hotel with international competitiveness, strategically located in the heart of Subang — the up-and-coming regional travelling hub of the nation.”
At a press conference before the ceremony, Ng said they were still choosing quality tenants. About 70% of retail space have been rented out.
“Empire Shopping Gallery is designed to be a lifestyle and contemporary centre that Subang Jaya would be proud to call its own.
“There will be a selection of F&B choices, and key players in the fashion, lifestyle and beauty industry.
“We believe that we are the only shopping centre to dedicate an entire floor for world-class education and entertainment for children,” he said.
Mammoth Empire Holding group executive director Danny Cheah said shoppers and visitors could expect a shopping gallery that was different as much emphasis had been placed on the interior.
“We have selected many fine pieces from various parts of the world to create an international feel, but the ambience will be comfortable and welcoming,” he said.
When asked about the traffic condition, Cheah said the Traffic Impact Assessment was done three years ago to study the projection of traffic.
“We can cope for the next 10 years and I foresee no problems.”
At the ceremony, guests were treated to a sumptuous spread and a performance by local songbird Ning Baizura.
