Fahrenheit 88 is a shopping mall located in the Bukit Bintang shopping district of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The Fahrenheit 88 building (previously known as KL Plaza) reopened in August 2010 after undergoing extensive renovation works. Management and leasing of the shopping mall is handled by the same company that manages the Pavilion Kuala Lumpur shopping mall.
The Fahrenheit 88 building was previously known as KL Plaza (shopping mall) and owned by the Berjaya Group. In 2007, Berjaya Group disposed the KL Plaza building for a total consideration of RM470 million to the Pavilion Group. The sale consisted of the 5-storey shopping podium for RM425 million, and 59 service apartments located on top of the shopping mall for RM45 million.
In early-2010, a publicity exercise was embarked by the Pavilion team, with major local press reporting on the rebranding of the building as Fahrenheit 88; the name reflecting the average temperature in Malaysia (31.1 C). Building renovation works, already underway during that time and reportedly costing RM100 million, will entirely change the interior and exterior of the old and outdated building.
Entrances are being repositioned and glass facades will be a prominent feature in the new design, allowing ample natural light to illuminate the interior. This shopping mall is accessible by several railway lines that run through the city centre.
