Phnom Penh’s latest shopping mall will open its doors to the public early next year, the developer told Khmer Times yesterday.
B2B Park is now being raised in the capital’s increasingly popular Sen Sok district, which already hosts several shopping malls.
Thourn Sinan, CEO and president of B2B Park, said the project is a modern mixed development financed by local investors.
“Our development mixes a new concept, attractive design, and functionality. The park will meet the rising demand for shopping malls in the area,” he said.
The mall’s six-storey building is already finished, he said, occupying 20,000 square metres with space for 5,000 vehicles.
B2B Park will have restaurants, bars, cafes, stores, showrooms, office space, and meeting rooms. The first floor will host a ‘digital park’ boasting electronic products from the world’s most recognised brands.
Thida Ann, associate director of real estate company CBRE Cambodia, praised the choice of location, saying Sen Sok is an emerging district becoming very popular with the city’s growing middle-class.
“B2B Park will be located near several other shopping malls. I think B2B understands this and strives to be different. If they target the middle-class, they will be successful,” she said.
Mr Sinan said his project will offer an affordable alternative to some of the other malls in the area.
“B2B Park is near other well-known malls like Aeon II, Global House and Makro. But we don’t want to compete with them. We want to complement them. Each mall should complement each other.
“Our mall targets a wide range of consumers, from low to high-income people, so that anyone can enjoy a nice meal for just $2.5,” he said.
According to Mr Sinan, B2B Park will organise exhibitions and fairs every month bringing exhibitors from around the region.
“We will also have weekly events where importers and exporters will be able to sell their products at discounted prices,” he added.
