Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd. (“Mitsui Fudosan”), a leading global real estate company headquartered in Tokyo, (President and Chief Executive Officer: Masanobu Komoda) today announced that its flagship project in Southeast Asia under its Malaysian subsidiary MFBBCC Retail Mall Sdn Bhd (a project company established with UDA Holdings Berhad, Eco World Development Group Berhad and Employee Provident Fund Board to promote this project), located in Bukit Bintang City Centre, will commence its operations on 20th January 2022. Approximately 400 stores with an optimal tenant mix will be opened in sequence upon its opening in January 2022 with numerous well-known brands from Japan that are making its first appearance in Malaysia.
Upon project delivery and commercialization of LaLaport BBCC, which is the core of the Bukit Bintang City Centre (“BBCC”), this project will become Mitsui Fudosan’s very first LaLaport mall in Southeast Asia and one of the largest commercial facilities with over 82,600sqm (est.) of floor space. This LaLaport BBCC is Mitsui Fudosan’s second LaLaport shopping mall overseas after Mitsui Shopping Park LaLaport Shanghai Jinqiao.
In addition to the shopping mall, Mitsui Fudosan works closely with BBCCD to establish the BBCC project as a large-scale urban development with diverse functions, comprising a shopping mall, residences, serviced apartments, office buildings and hotels, with a total site area of approximately 78,500sqm (est.). Upon its completion, the BBCC project is set to become the one and only landmark that proposes a new Japanese-based lifestyle, enabling the local community to “live, work, play and gather” in a more convenient way.
LaLaport BBCC will be leading the development of the entire project as the central hub that promotes people-to-people exchanges, improves livelihoods and offers relaxation to the public. As a lifestyle-focused shopping mall originating from Japan, LaLaport BBCC aims to boost consumer confidence with its design that creates a new customer experience and incorporates Malaysia’s culture and trends while retaining a distinctive Japanese DNA.
