New Anchor tenants B.I.G and VRinity to bring new life to Mall of Medini in preparation of Visit Johor 2020
A joint venture between UEM Sunrise Berhad (UEM Sunrise), one of Malaysia’s leading property developers, and Iskandar Investment Berhad (IIB), will be sporting a fresh and exciting new look with the addition of two new anchor tenants – a gourmet supermarket and a virtual reality centre at the Mall of Medini in Iskandar Puteri, Johor.
Anchor tenant Ben’s Independent Grocer (B.I.G) will have its sixth supermarket and the first outside of Klang Valley. B.I.G offers the finest and freshest ingredients from all over the world so that Johoreans and weekend shoppers from Singapore can explore and expand their taste buds. They can also experience a complete grocery adventure through an impressive array of specialised ingredient themed sections like Barn Butchery, Bay Seafood, B.Organic and Malay Kitchen.
Together with B.I.G, Korea’s largest telecommunications operator KT Corporation has also launched VRinity – A Virtual Reality Centre of Excellence. It offers 5,000 square feet of fully immersive gaming centre equipped with the best virtual reality (VR) technologies from Korea including motion platforms, racing simulators and VR touch experience.
UEM Sunrise Berhad Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer Anwar Syahrin Abdul Ajib said as the master developer of Iskandar Puteri, UEM Sunrise will continue adding value to Johor by making things exciting for Mall of Medini visitors and the community.
“In re-launching Mall of Medini with a fresh new look, fun and interactive activities; a variety of shopping facilities and a wide range of experiences will be on offer. We are also hoping to play our part in the Johor government and Tourism Johor’s efforts to attract more visitors and to achieve their target of 8.4 million tourists for Visit Johor 2020,” he added.
To make Mall of Medini accessible for commuters between Malaysia and Singapore, bus operator Causeway Link has launched its new cross-border route via the Second link.
