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.

In the face of rising crime rates, a concerned group of residents in the Northern Zone are proposing to have their area gated and guarded.

Leaflets for feedback have been sent to the affected residents. They are in the process of gathering responses and are trying to work out the details.

Residents who would like to give their feedback/suggestions can join in their discussion which is held at 10 a.m.on each Saturday at the Northern Zone field.

There has been a case yesterday afternoon whereby these 'grasscutters' turned nasty and tried to force open the garden gate when their offer has been turned down.
