By now, most of us can easily name the malls which are still standing and doing well in the Klang Valley alone. Unfortunately, not every place will stay the same forever.

Yesterday (6 June), the Facebook page Malaysia Shopping Mall shared multiple images of the current situation in 1 of the oldest malls in Kuala Lumpur – Plaza OUG.

Posted by Malaysia Shopping Mall on Monday, June 6, 2022

 

On public holidays, malls are expected to be crowded but not in this case. With most of the shops unoccupied, the caption of the post has broken the hearts of fans of the place.

“Plaza OUG will be demolished by this year to make way for a highrise building with a shopping mall & a basement car park.”

According to the caption, most of the tenants in Plaza OUG have moved out and even Parkson has also left last year.

Last year, The Edge Market reported that there are plans to redevelop Plaza OUG into a:

  • 6-storey shopping complex,
  • a 30-storey hotel with 312 rooms
  • 41-storey serviced apartment with 361 units.

 

A trip down the memory lane

It did not take long for the post to gain the attention of fellow Malaysians, especially the ones who grew up visiting the mall during its glory days. A lot of them expressed their sadness over the announcement and reminisced their memories of the place.

In the meantime, some people were unhappy with NOT ONLY its pending demolition but with the necessity of another mall which will likely worsen the already-congested traffic in the area.

Plaza OUG, which has a history of at least 30 years back is fondly known as Yaohan among the community.

 

Do you think demolishing the mall is a good idea and will bring benefits to the people around there? At the same time, do you think that Klang Valley has too many malls already?
