Udini Square is a shopping mall at Gelugor, a southern suburb of George Town in Penang, Malaysia. Opened in 2015, the three-storey mall is currently anchored by two sporting good chains, SportsDirect.com and MST Golf Superstore, as well as Mr D.I.Y., Malaysia's largest hardware chain.[2][3]

Udini Square was developed by a Malaysian property developer, IJM Corporation, with a gross development value of RM75 million.[4][1] The suburban lifestyle mall caters to residents within Gelugor, and sits near the Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway that links George Town, the Penang Bridge and Penang International Airport.

Retail outlets[edit]

Udini Square, which sits on 2.78 acres (1.13 hectares) of land, has a total of 103 retail and office lots ranging from 113 to 2,855 sq ft, allowing for better flexibility in interior planning and design.[1][5] The lower two floors of the mall consist of retail space, while the uppermost level comprises office space.

The three major anchor tenants are SportsDirect.com, MST Golf Superstore and Mr D.I.Y.[2][3] Other retail outlets and eateries within the mall include Goku Sen, Frank Laurent, Nagomi, myNEWS.com and Happy Life.[1]

Location[edit]

Udini Square is located at Lebuh Tunku Kudin 3 at Gelugor, George Town's southernmost suburb.[6] It is connected to the adjacent Tesco departmental store via an overhead footbridge.[2] The two shopping centres are also sited close to the Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway, which runs along the eastern coastline of Penang Island between George Town and Batu Maung to the southeast.

Transport[edit]

Rapid Penang buses 13 and 206 serve the area.[7][8]
