Suria KLCC is a shopping mall in Kuala Lumpur City Centre, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

History and design[edit]

Opened in May 1998, the shopping mall was conceived as part of the Petronas Twin Towers project, having been constructed alongside the towers. The back of the mall is designed to offer views of KLCC Park and Lake Symphony, and open pool in between the parkland and the mall. The mall's floor plan is L-shaped, featuring its two wings exiting to Jalan Ampang and Jalan P. Ramlee, and converging at the central atrium, where direct assess to the lobby of the towers, the Petronas Philharmonic Hall and Lake Symphony are available.

Tenants[edit]

Since its conception the mall primarily houses upscale tenants, specialising in a combination of foreign luxury goods and high-street labels, and mid-range retail chains, totaling at more than 350 shops. In addition to retail spaces, the building includes an art gallery, an underwater aquarium and a science center.

Management[edit]

Suria KLCC is the largest retail property under the management of Suria KLCC Sdn. Bhd. Other properties under their management include: Alamanda Putrajaya, a regional shopping centre; Mesra Mall Terengganu, a sub regional shopping centre; and Anjung Putrajaya, a convenience centre.[1]

Transportation[edit]

The mall's Jalan Ampang entrance is a major rapidKL and GoKL bus hub. Examples of routes serving it are 402 (Maluri - Titiwangsa) and 300 (Pandan Mewah - Ampang - Lebuh Ampang/Jalan Munshi Abdullah).

Suria KLCC is connected to the  KJ10  underground KLCC LRT station which is located underneath the Avenue K shopping mall via an underground pedestrian walkway. In 2022 there will be a station on the MRT Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya Line, provisionally named KLCC East and is also underground. Despite the similar name, the MRT SSP station will not be interchangeable with the existing LRT station.
