UOA Group celebrated the grand launch of Nexus, the latest addition to the 24.3ha award-winning Bangsar South integrated city development, last Saturday.

In conjunction with the launch, there were lion dance performances, dance fiesta, ukulele group performance, a charity walk as well as activities for children.

The inaugural Bangsar South Charity Walk Together 2014, which was part of UOA’s corporate social responsibility programme, saw more than 1,500 people taking a 4.3km walk around Bangsar South.

The group raised RM60,000 for three underprivileged children’s charities, namely Persatuan Kebajikan Rumah Perlindungan Teratak Nur Insan, Rumah Victory Children’s Home and Stepping Stones Living Centre.

Each charity home received RM20,000 at the mock cheque presentation ceremony during the grand launch.

UOA Group representative Kong Sze Choon said: “We believe this initiative will help chart a better future for the underprivileged children and we will continue to support such programmes in our endeavour to foster the spirit of caring for the betterment of the communities we are engaged in.”

The charity walk was jointly organised by Nexus in collaboration with Capri by Fraser Hotel Residences and Invito Hotel Suites.

Nexus is dedicated to the creation of a vibrant community hub that offers relaxation and enjoyment through its dining, retail, health and leisure options.

Kong said the wide array of eateries and cafés render it the ideal place for social events or gatherings with families and friends.

“Featuring a modern space of more than 27,870.9sq m nett lettable area over five levels, Nexus will be a buzzing social hub for diners and visitors alike with its welcoming atmosphere, exciting lifestyle concepts, amenities, services and ample parking facilities,” he said.

Diners can expect an extensive selection of dining choices ranging from local to international fare with a myriad of tantalising cuisines such as Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Korean, Western and Malaysian.

Apart from being a food paradise, Nexus also boasts of a number of wellness facilities including a beauty salon, a manicure and pedicure studio, as well as a hair salon.

It also houses a home décor store and a preschool that offers children enrichment programmes.

A fitness club and a fertility centre cater to the health and well-being needs of the modern clientele.
