Soo was also quoted by The Sun Daily as saying that the average occupancy rate of retail space in greater KL was at 87.9 per cent last year. He cited Suria KLCC, Pavilion KL, Mid Valley Megamall, Sunway Pyramid and 1 Utama as top performing malls with an average occupancy rate of more than 90 per cent for each mall.

Despite the growing e-commerce scene in Malaysia, the deputy executive chairman explained that the retail market will experience a changing landscape in the long term as malls react to the millennium crowd and e-commerce’s disruptions.

Meanwhile, it was also predicted that there would be an additional supply of around 20 million square feet of shopping complexes and 22 million square feet of purpose-built offices available this year, which will likely lead to lower occupancy rates and decreasing rental charges.

This growing number of buildings has raised concern among some, with property consultants Rahim & Co stating that the number of new commercial spaces available in the next two to five years may not be completely utilised. The property consultancy firm’s executive chairman Abdul Rahim Abdul Rahman stated,

“There is a worry that these spaces may not be occupied. The positive part of it is people who do business have choices and rentals may not be as high as before.”

“I don’t know the tipping point (for retail space) but I would be comfortable with an additional two million sq ft, not eight million sq ft or more.”

What do you think of the growing number of malls and retail spaces coming up in the next few years? Let us know in the comments below!
