KUALA BELAIT, Saturday, November 8, 2014 - A NEW shopping mall in Kuala Belait, Sentral Shopping Centre, is expected to be operational by December this year and has set its sights on catching traffic flow from the borders, the developer of the commercial property said.
The integrated shopping mall, which comes with a hotel and service apartments also aims to cater to expatriates and residents of Kuala Belait, said General Manager of KBSentral Property Management, Abby Lim yesterday.
Over 80 per cent of the shop units at the upcoming shopping complex have been taken up by businesses, she said.
Now, only six units are left available.
Lim said Kuala Belait is known to be quiet and offers limited options for shopping and entertainment.
“We want to bring more life into KB, give residents in the district more options. We also hope to attract more shoppers from Miri, our neighbour,” she told The Brunei Times.
She added the company aims to help provide a strategic location for local busineses in Belait District.
Lim also hoped to employ more locals to work at the shopping centres.
“We want to provide more employment opportunities to the locals in the area,” she said.
Located at the junction of Seria-Rasau Bypass Road and Jalan Pandan Lima, it is only a few minutes’ drive away from Kuala Belait and Seria Town.
Some of the main features of the shopping centre include supermarket, retail shops, food and beverages outlets, play zone, arcades and snow play cubicles.
Lim said a number of local and international food and beverage franchises will be there.
An atrium space is also suitable to become venues for exhibitions, events, activities and roadshows.
Lim said a four-unit cinema complex will also be available at the shopping centre.
Serviced apartments and a hotel will also be available equipped with facilities such as swimming pool, gym and garden courtyard, banquet hall, function hall, meeting rooms and free public parking area.
“We want to provide a complete one stop integrated shopping centre for the public,” she said.
