A press release from real estate firm CBRE Cambodia announcing that leasing has begun also mentioned that the mall will open its doors to the public in the third quarter of 2020. CBRE Cambodia is the lead leasing agent for the project.
“The Phnom Penh Megamall is set for opening in the third quarter of 2020 and commits to offering a high-quality shopping mall that follows international standards of operation, management, design and build, safety regulation, as well as professionally operated retailers,” it said.
Once completed, Phnom Penh Megamall, known previously as Parkson Mall, will join a rapidly growing number of shopping centres and malls in the capital.
Since last year, more than a dozen malls have opened in Phnom Penh, including Aeon Mall 2, The Park, Noro Mall, Prince Plaza Mall, Eden Garden, and Olympia Plaza Mall.
Based on the original plan, the nine-storey Phnom Penh Megamall will feature a supermarket on the ground floor. Stores selling aromatics, beauty products, clothes, appliances, food, drinks, electronic devices and household furniture, among other items, will occupy the first to eighth floors.
The mall will also host a bowling alley with 30 lanes and a cinema operated by Golden Screen Cinema, who owns the largest multiplex cinema in Southeast Asia. A large parking lot will be able to accommodate 1,500 cars and 3,000 motorbikes.
The project is being developed by Hassan (Cambodia) Development Co Ltd.
“Phnom Penh Megamall aims to be a mall for the next generation. To achieve this, we have factored in every aspect, from concept to creation, including, but not limited to, construction consultancy, design, MEP, safety, floor layout, traffic flow, mall access and tenant mix,” Rofy Othsman, managing director of Hassan (Cambodia) Development, said.
“Being the only shopping mall located in the heart of Phnom Penh, as well as being surrounded by some of Phnom Penh’s most premium commercial and residential buildings, prestigious universities and government institutions, Phnom Penh Megamall has both the scale and capability to set itself apart from any other malls that have been built and will be built in the Kingdom,” Thyda Pov, CBRE leasing manager, said.
