Plaza Merdeka

 

 


One of the most visible effects when a couple of big shopping malls opened in the suburbs of the Sarawak capital in recent years was that the old city core has turned quiet and rather devoid of people after dark.


 

 

Most of the city's international hotels are located downtown, clustered near the Sarawak River around several smaller shopping centres and traditional shopping strips.

 


 

 


The Plaza Merdeka Mall fronts the historic Padang Merdeka and has the old Court House complex and the General Post Office -- old architectural icons of Kuching -- for neighbours.

 


It is possible now for visitors to soak in the old-world charm of Kuching, even perhaps staying the night at a new boutique, all-suites hotel called The Ranee along the Main Bazaar.


The shophouse-front hotel along Kuching's oldest street attempts to recreate the romance and splendour of the period when a dynasty of three "White Rajahs" ruled Sarawak from 1841 to 1946.


 

 


Architectural gems, such as the Square Tower, the Pavilion (now a textile museum) and, on the opposite bank of the river, the Astana and Fort Margherita, dot the vicinity.


Since the mall opened in December 2013

 

 


Several businesses have also recently located to India Street in anticipation of increased foot traffic of shoppers there.


A planned covered canopy across the pedestrianised India Street should offer a rather seamless blend of the modern and traditional shopping experiences, in effect making the street an extension of the mall.


An even more elaborate plan calls for the India Street pedestrian mall to be extended right across the Court House to Carpenter Street and for the Main Bazaar to be turned into a one-way street to make more room for expansive sidewalks along the Kuching Waterfront.


 



 

Plaza Merdeka

The Plaza Merdeka is located in the heart of Kuching city,only steps from the magnificent waterfront. Nearby is Chinatown with its quaint streets, numerous temples, the renowned Sarawak Museum, the old State Mosque , old shops and streets brimming with history and character.

The Shopping Mall boasts a gross area of over half a million sq ft with a nett lettable area of 350,000 sq ft. The discerning feature of the mall will be its huge 9,000 sq ft four-storey high garden podium for promotions and exhibitions. There will be a departmental store, supermarket, coffee shops as well as a food court .



Complementing the mall is a boutique business & tourist hotel. The hotel, situated above the mall will have a panoramic view of the river, Astana, the new state of the art DUN building & Fort Margherita on one side and the Padang Merdeka and Sarawak Museum on the other.


This modern, state-of-the-art shopping mall and hotel development within a classical building fašade, designed by renowned Architect Yolanda David Reyes (YDR design, Manila Philippines) in the historical district of Kuching City will add life, vibrancy and excitement to this landmark site.

 

Ample car parks spread over 6 acres is provided for on levels B2 & B3 with multiple access points to the mall.  The ample parking will also serve to enhance the pedestrian flow of the surrounding vibrant retail streets.

The mall shall serve as an oasis amidst the old historic buildings. With its unrivalled garden like setting, its shopper friendly layout and good retail mix, it will be a desired shopping destination that will be hard to beat.
