Yangon will add another huge retail outlet to its expanding collection of shopping centres on March 16 when Junction Square opens, a company spokesperson said last week.

The four-storey centre, which is between Pyay and Kyuntaw roads in Kamaryut township, occupies a 9-acre plot and includes more than 300,000 square feet of retail space, the spokesperson said.

Junction Square will be the fifth Junction-branded retail centre, he added.

“We have to open shopping centres at a quality level that satisfies all potential clients. We aim for this development to meet international standards and reflect the changing face of Yangon,” said Ko Ye Naing, marketing manager of Shwe Taung Development’s Junction Centre division.

The centre was planned and designed in cooperation with Thai and domestic architecture firms, he said.

Junction Square will house more than 300 shop houses on the ground floor, while the remaining levels will cater to shops selling clothing, cosmetic, jewellery, fabric, IT products, furniture, housewares, electronics, toys and more.

It will also include an edutainment centre and a health and wellness centre on the third floor, he added.

The development will also house international education facilities, computer centres, bank branches and three mini theatres, one of which will show 3D movies.

The compound includes parking for at least 200 vehicles.
