KENT, WA-It will take more than just good credit to lock down the last two available retail spaces in the Great Wall Shopping Mall, a 100,000 sf mall located at 18230 E. Valley Highway near the intersection of highways 405 and 167.

Great Wall features the highest concentration of Asian businesses in the Puget Sound region, and developer Omar Lee wants to continue the theme. Moreover, to enhance the success of its tenants and to promote a diverse shopping experience for visitors, Lee is not allowing duplicate businesses in the mall.

The mall opened its doors in April 1999 after long delays. It currently hosts 33 tenants that make up a diverse mix of Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Filipino, Thai, Cambodian and Laotian businesses. Ideally, Lee says he would prefer to lease the two remaining 1,000-sf spaces to a bank and an East Indian or Pakistani restaurant or spice shop, because of the many Indian shoppers who frequent the mall.
