Avenue K was officiated on 19 June 2014 by the Minister of Federal Territories, YB Datuk Seri Utama Tengku Adnan bin Tengku Mansor. The official launch featured speeches by the VIPs and a lion dance performance and was the culmination of the mall’s “Connecting KL” campaign which preceded the shopping mall’s grand opening.

Philanthropists Teri Choong of NGO Generasi Gemilang, and Dato’ Ruby Khong of Kechara Soup Kitchen Society Malaysia were among the AK ambassadors appointed in conjunction with Avenue K’s grand opening campaign. Teri Choong won RM8,000.00 and Dato Ruby Khong won RM2,000.00 from Avenue K for their respective charities in a treasure hunt held earlier in June and were presented with mock cheques at the opening.

“Keeping in line with our tagline of ‘Make Friends, Create Trends’, we’ve engaged 14 ambassadors who represent a colourful and diverse group of people in the city to bring out our ‘Connecting KL’ campaign to life. We want to share our joy of new beginnings with our customers so we have infused this energy and spirit into all our activities to start the launch of the mall positively,” declared Sue Wang, AK’s General Manager.

The newly refurbished Avenue K is Kuala Lumpur’s latest shopping mall and features various eateries, cafes, boutiques, a gym, as well as anchor tenant H&M. The mall is directly connected to the KLCC LRT station making it very accessible.
