About Avenue K Home

In Asia , shopping has become a central part of daily life, it is not just a necessity, it has also become a past time, where individuals or groups spend most of their time in shops, without any obligation to buy or to consume. Unfortunately due to the extreme climate, shopping in Asia has never had the opportunity to become what it is in Europe or the US . There are no tiny village streets or boulevards lined with stores nor are there squares with café life. A synergy exists between socialising and shopping and with mall design in Asia being a standard formula, there has not as yet been the opportunity to explore this very important theme.

To address this social aspect of shopping, avenue K aims to provide the third place between work and home, a social hub or meeting place for people to converge during the day and after home or work. With leisure being a primary objective in a shopping context, avenue K addresses the need for a specific identity and to create a certain shopping culture, where lifestyle, aesthetic and social elements converge. This is created by recreating a village culture within the confines of a mall space. The aesthetic of the space, the layout of each floor and the retail mix applied, are the core of creating this hub.

With an ever increasing number of consumers converging to higher income brackets and a larger number of educated youth in Malaysia , avenue K addresses a need for a new concept which is more international. With urbanites becoming more well-traveled and global, there is an appreciation of lifestyle which gives value to the way things look and how they are created. In any economy that is growing there is always a correspondent growth in aspirations to have a better quality of life and to have a new experience no matter who. The concept of avenue K is to target this feature of developing countries and to provide this experience.

By creating a space to live our lives, offering fresh surroundings in which to explore the discovery of new inspirations, finding the familiar, or to unwind with friends, avenue K aims to pamper, provide, inspire and excite. Many centres are either categorised as niche or mass, avenue K will be approachable. The retail mix aims to incorporate elements of convenience, local culture and global concepts.

Asians value the time spent eating and drinking, it is an important part of their culture and family life.
