Was I wrong! I went in and it was bustling with visitors inside. It was not even a weekend or public holiday.
Many people complain that new malls are all identical. They have to be. The shops are all template designed and stocked.
I think IOI City Mall’s appeal is that they managed to attract many tenants in its early days. Almost every retailer and food outlet is represented here. Not only are they here, they are all opened.
Many new malls usually open with empty or shuttered lots. The only time I went to a new mall I liked was Setia City Mall. It opened with a full array of functioning shops and restaurants too. I had fun with a camera here at IOI City Mall and here’s a photo essay or sort of.
The ‘city’ moniker is derived from the developer’s own township named IOI City. It is on the edge of Putrajaya. It is the venue of the Putrajaya Marriot and the new mall has the Le Méridien Putrajaya attached.
