Despite this, the REIT reports that tenant sales and shopper traffic at the Wisma Atria Property improved by 7.4% and 16.6% q-o-q respectively, as the mall continues to navigate through tightened Covid-19 measures.

Asset enhancement works for The Starhill are currently in progress with expected completion by December 2021. Its retail podium is partially operational and open to the public, with luxury retailers such as Louis Vuitton and Shiatzy Chen. Notably, Balmain opened its first store in Malaysia at the mall, the REIT highlights.
