Pulau Melaka, Melaka
: Parkson Corporation Sdn. Bhd Completed
: 2015 Built up
: 1.5 million sq.ft
This 23 acre development is planned for a mixed development that comprises office, residential and a 750,000sq.f t. net rentable space in Phase I. Phase II will add an additional 500,000sq.f t. net rentable space when completed.
The design objective was to develop a water front shopping mall. The mall will incorporate a promenade to allow shoppers to experience a water front ambience. This breezy casual atmosphere will also be experienced in a street mall that is sandwiched between the two blocks of air-conditioned malls.
Ever y level of the mall is lit with natural lighting through glass walls that run along the length of the mall’s atrium.
The glass walls allow shoppers to have external views of the sea and the transparency together with appropriate landscaping will give the shoppers the experience of the openness of a “seaside” or “waterfront” ambience.
