The Maluri MRT station has almost similar layout to Pasar Seni MRT station. The differences are the LRT station is side platform instead of island platform, and there is no extra level for plant room (i.e. B3 in Pasar Seni) for the MRT station.
Bit by bit, Kuala Lumpur’s Taman Maluri (commonly called Maluri), along with its surrounds, has slowly transformed from an old working class residential area into a new exciting commercial hub with ample lifestyle and local community living elements.
Covering an area of around 2.95 sq km (about 730 acres), Maluri is one of the most prominent suburban locations in KL, sitting at the border of the city centre adjacent to the Pudu and Chan Sow Lin areas.
Maluri’s old dame of retail is the 30-year-old AEON Taman Maluri which has recently been refurbished and expanded. But the newer malls entering Maluri are the main reasons for its renewed vitality.
