IPOH: Team Keris Bhd has pledged RM4mil to spruce up the surrounding areas of the Station 18 commercial area in anticipation of the completion of Perak’s largest shopping mall.
A five-storey Jaya Jusco with an internal built-up area of 1.2 million sq ft is expected to be ready by February next year within the Station 18 area in Pengkalan.
”We will be widening roads and putting up traffic lights to ensure a smooth flow of traffic,” said Michael Tan, a director of Team Keris which developed Station 18.
He said upgrading the infrastructure there would take about three to four months.
Tan gave a press briefing yesterday to dispel market buzz about the exact location of the new Jaya Jusco.
He said Aeon Co (M) Bhd, formerly known as Jaya Jusco Stores Bhd, signed a sales and purchase agreement on June 28 last year with three parties which included Kemboja Iringan Sdn Bhd for the acquisition of the land.
Kemboja Iringan is a member of Team Keris.
”We are looking forward to the project because it will spur growth and create job opportunities in the surrounding areas,” he said.
He said the new Jaya Jusco was expected to provide a modern shopping environment for the estimated 500,000 households here and areas such as Batu Gajah, Papan, Tanjung Tualang, Pusing and Seri Iskandar.
”It would also add value to the properties in Station 18 and the Pengkalan area,” Tan said.
The first Jaya Jusco here opened in 1997 near Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah Utara.
