The Atria Shopping Centre, one of Petaling Jaya's oldest shopping malls and landmark of Damansara Jaya has shut down and is enclosed by zinc sheets.
OSK Property Holdings Bhd plans to replace the mall with a RM1 billion development that will comprise a 5-storey retail podium beneath two 16-storey office towers.
The group plans to retain the neighbourhood mall concept and have a lot more F&B outlets. The retail podium will have a roof garden with water features.
It will take about 6 months to complete the demolition of the old building.
The retail podium is expected to be completed by end 2013 while the towers will be completed by end 2014 or early 2015.
