News: Perak To Increase Tourist Activities With Silverlakes Brand Village Outlet

Dec 7, 2017

 
Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir hopes the rise of Silverlakes Brand Village Outlet in Batu Gajah will turn Perak into a major shopping destination not only for locals but also for international tourists.

“Silverlakes Brand Village Outlet will further boost the economy in this area, which is already a tourist attraction with Kellie’s Castle nearby and the Tanjung Tualang Dredge No.5 tin dredge just 10 minutes away,” he said at the mall’s ground-breaking ceremony.

Touted as first premium outlet mall in Perak, Silverlakes Brand Village Outlet’s construction is well underway, with the piling and sub-structure works started in March.

“We hope to hold our soft launch by next December, with 60 percent to 70 percent of retailers having moved in by then,” said Silverland Capital Sdn Bhd Executive Chairman Datuk Azizan Abd Rahman.

“Its official opening should be within the first quarter of 2019.”

“No doubt, we are not the first premium outlet mall in the country, but then this will be the first village outlet with such beautiful landscapes and over 40 percent of its area covered by a lake.”

In a bid to promote Silverlakes Brand Village Outlet as a venue for international and regional events, the mall is set to host various events such as vintage car shows, the Silverlakes World Jazz Festival, gourmet and local food festivals, fashion events, antique flea markets, as well as international shows and competitions like The World Drone Grand Prix.

Azizan revealed that Silverlakes Brand Village Outlet is just the first phase of the grand master plan for the Silverlakes development. He noted that the construction of a 1,200 seat convention centre and a four-star 220-room hotel annexed to the mall are set to commence by end-2018.

“In Phase 2 will be the development of a modern gated-and-guarded lakeside residential project with townhouses, courtyard homes and lakeside villas across 26.3ha initially and extending to another 46.5ha of wetlands surrounded by beautiful lakes,” he said.

“In Phase 3, we will embark on a lakeside boutique resort development with private-pool villas to be called The Cocoon, which will also include a retirement home complete with health facilities and a health farm.”

With a gross development value of more than RM2 billion, the 206ha Silverlakes development will take seven to 10 years to complete, added Azizan.
