Confusing layout

When we first visited Fahrenheit88 we had to get used to the layout of the mall. If you enter through the main entrance you will walk to the main center of the mall. From there you will use the elevators to get to the higher floors. The mall is quite deep but the design makes it look like a rather small shopping mall at first. To us this was a bit confusing, though the overall design is very nice. Noteworthy shops and restaurants at Fahrenheit88 are Epi Centre, Sushi Zanmai, Charles & Keith, Rip Curl, Midori Japanese Steamboat & Buffet.

Underpass or coffee place

In front of the main entrance of Fahrenheit88 there is a nice coffee place; O'Coffee Club (originating from Singapore). Before the mall was opened to public we read stories that Pavilion Group (owner of both Pavilion KL and Fahrenheit88) was planning to build an underpass between both malls. When the nice building where O'Coffee is located was built; we thought this would be then entrance of the underpass. There are still plans to create an actual underpass, directly between the lower floors of both malls. It is unclear when this will be built.
