Plaza Singapura unveils $150m revamped look

Check out its revolutionary mall concepts.

According to a release, the revamped Plaza Singapura is welcoming shoppers with a new shopping experience after a S$150 million asset enhancement programme.

The works, which took 21 months, combined the retail podium at the neighbouring The Atrium@Orchard with Plaza Singapura. Shoppers can now look forward to a seamless shopping experience at an enlarged Plaza Singapura with a total of some 320 fashion, F&B and lifestyle offerings.

The new Plaza Singapura has a total net lettable area (“NLA”) of 629,000 square feet (“sq ft”), an increase of some 25% to about the size of ION Orchard. Levels 1, 3 and 4 are connected seamlessly.

The new wing has some 80 shops, including new-to-market concepts, targeting young adults and professionals, managers, executives and business people (“PMEBs”).

The mall’s façade has been revamped with elegantly flowing architectural ribbons with twinkling lights. Inspired by waves, it harks back in time to the flow of people and trade which once linked the Orchard area and the sea.

Welcoming shoppers at the front plaza is the Jelly Baby Family by Italian artist Mauro Peruchetti. The family of five greets shoppers arriving at the mall, embodying the unity of family and Singapore’s multi-cultural society.

New-to-market concepts at the new wing include:

JRunway – A first-of-its-kind concept store in Singapore with a 20 metre long catwalk runway, offering the latest collections right from the heart of Japan’s renowned youth hubs. The more than 15 well-loved Japanese brands include EMODA, WEGO, Mystic, Ciaopanic, Ray Cassin, and more.

1 Market by Chef Wan – The renowned Malaysian chef has opened his first restaurant with Food Junction. Dubbed the ‘Food Ambassador of Malaysia’, diners can expect authentic Southeast Asian cuisine at the buffet restaurant, made from Chef Wan’s own recipes.

Tsukada Nojo – Opening their first outlet outside Japan, Tsukada Nojo is known for its collagen soup made from premium Miyazaki free range chicken.

House Of Turntables – A one-stop lifestyle shop offering customised and affordable sound systems and vinyl records.

Shoppers can also look forward to American fashion brand GAP’s first street level duplex and largest store in Singapore; New York label Baby Phat; UNIQLO; Sephora; Crumpler; Laline; Skinny Pizza; Canelé and Nana’s Green Tea Café.

For groceries and daily necessities, Cold Storage supermarket will commence operations in the first quarter of 2013.
