Malaysians are used to large malls (400,000+ m²), although dwarfed by comparison it’s nothing extraordinary, just bigger. I wonder if others would be excited, or perhaps intimated by these mega-structures though.

    it doesn’t look that huge. i think kl’s midvalley as whole is as big but maybe counted as 3-4 connected buildings not 1?

      Midvalley area is huge and many buildings are inter-connected, it’s not comparable. The main mall is about a quarter the size of this.
