1 Utama Launches 1 Utama E

1 Utama launches 1 Utama E

I knew something was happening when I see my favorite mall 1 Utama doing massive construction over the old promenade. Something big was coming and I thought it was more retail outlets. Boy was I wrong because this new extension called 1 Utama E brought in two world-class sports to be introduced to the non-stop expansion of the great 1 Utama Shopping Centre! The AirRider and the FlowRider!

Baby G has personally tried the AirRider and FlowRider and will be releasing his introduction to the two activities soon separately. He'll be sharing his personal experience as well thanks to 1 Utama for inviting us to the opening launch where he got to try both of them! He loves all these indoor and outdoor activities u know :) 

AirRider & FlowRider opens in 1 Utama E (E Wing)

The new expansion called 1 Utama E adds another 600,000sqft to the massive 6 million sqft of gross built-up area 1 Utama resides in. The total development costs a whopping RM150million onwards! 1 Utama's Director Tan Sri Dato' Teo Chiang Kok gave his speech on opening day, sharing his hopes and dreams of making 1 Utama the one-stop centre for everything and everyone, including world-class athletes coming to partake in events, regional and international championships right in 1 Utama E. Athletes, spectators and enthusiasts in watersports and skydiving from all over the world will also be coming! No wonder he has the support of the tourism ministry. This domino effect would put us right on the map for tourism and sports development in Malaysia and not forget the job opportunities it'll create.

Now if you're wondering what does 1 Utama E stands for, it's E for Excite, Entertain, and Exhilarate! A multisport and entertainment centre in Malaysia that's set to attract both local and foreign visitors not only as a world-class sports tourism destination but also as an entertainment lifestyle esplanade.

AirRider 2nd Floor
Indoor skydiving wind tunnel for simulated skydiving (specialist equipment and technology imported from the Czech Republic and Australia) - 1st skydiving wind tunnel in a shopping mall in Asia Pacific!

SOON: Gate B connects directly to 1 Utama E

1 Utama has truly become one of the best malls in Malaysia throughout the years. With its ever-expanding plans to become a one-stop centre to shop, play and dine, it's not just a mall anymore. To get to 1 Utama via public transportation would be via MRT to Bandar Utama stop. From there, you can walk over to the mall and hopefully soon, the direct access to 1 Utama E via Gate B will be opened soon. For those driving, an additional 3 levels of basement carpark will be added in 1 Utama E. That's approx 500 bays but I doubt that would make the carpark situation better. Maybe 1 Utama needs to think about a sky car park soon.
