Jaya Shopping Centre
Petaling Jaya, Selangor
The new shopping centre serves to continue the legacy of Jaya Supermarket (Petaling Jaya’s first shopping mall from the ‘60s) as the anchor of Section 14’s commercial area amongst its immediate context of matured residential neighbourhood. The latest version comprises four levels of basement parking, and five floors of retail and dining experiences around a naturally lit central atrium. Open terraces by the elevated entrance complement the existing pedestrian traffic, whilst another external terrace on the third floor offers an al-fresco experience with views beyond the neighbourhood. Retail lots on the fourth floor are designed as atypical to create an overall organic layout. The uppermost floor is prescribed with eight cinema halls, completing patrons’ access to silver screen entertainment.
