Aman Central, a new lifestyle shopping mall in the heart of Alor Setar city, will open for business in the fourth quarter of 2014.

Belleview Group Managing Director Datuk Sonny Ho said the eight-storey RM500 million mall at the site of the abandoned Plaza Tunku Yaacob would have a net lettable area of 750,000 sq ft.

The project was a collaboration between the Belleview Group and Kedah State Development Corporation (PKNK), he said at the groundbreaking ceremony officiated by Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Azizan Abdul Razak here today.

Aman Central will house a supermarket, a major department store, branded fashion retailers, food and beverage outlets, a 36-lane bowling centre and an eight-hall cineplex, among others.

Ho said a five-star hotel would be built adjacent to the mall. “Next to the hotel, a five-star condominium named as Amansuri Residences will commence construction soon,” he added.

A connecting element for visitors between the mall and the neighbouring development, the Aman Walk that mirrors against the Bintang Walk in Kuala Lumpur would also be developed.

“It’ll not only be the catalyst for an exciting new shopping experience but will also generate the state’s economy by creating businesses, commercial and job opportunities.

“And the location in an area that is rich with Kedah historical landmark, may further promote the state’s tourism industry,” he said.
