More shopping malls are set to open in Malaysia in 2016, even though some of the malls mentioned in our 2015 Shopping Mall list are still yet to open its doors!

Nevertheless, as Malaysians we can’t help but to get super excited to know that more shopping malls are coming our way, also hoping that some of the tenants are new ones housed in malls that are closer and more accessible from our homes!

However, with Putrajaya IOI City Mall, Atria Shopping Gallery and Gamuda Walk in Shah Alam open for business, we wonder if there’s still any space left in the Klang Valley to fit these six upcoming shopping malls in 2016!

1. CentralPlaza@i-City (i-City Mall)
