Wow wow west

Straits Times: Fri, Mar 30
In the last two decades, the retail landscape has spread from the city to suburbs like Tampines and Serangoon and, more recently, Buona Vista and Katong.

Now, add Jurong to this expansion.

Jurong Gateway, a 70 ha area around the Jurong East MRT station, will usher in three new malls by the end of next year, adding about 2.1million sq ft of retail space to serve the roughly one million residents in the western part of the island.

The first to open will be the five-storey JCube on Monday. The 210,000 sq ft mall sits on the site formerly occupied by Jurong Entertainment Centre. It is owned by CapitaMall Trust, which also owns the nearby IMM Building.

True to its positioning as a lifestyle mall, JCube will house the only Olympic-sized ice-skating rink in town and the first Imax theatre in the suburbs.

CapitaMall Trust, along with CapitaMalls Asia and CapitaLand, also owns another shopping mall next to JCube. Called Westgate, the building is slated to open by Christmas next year...
