Tekka Place marks topping out
Hospitality-and-retail integrated development Tekka Place has marked its topping out, and is scheduled for a soft opening by the end of this year.
Located at 2 Serangoon Road, the complex has a main tower and a seven-storey annex with rooftop deck. Tekka Place will cater to the needs of nearby residents, office workers and commuters of both the North East and Downtown MRT lines, as well as house the new Citadines Rochor serviced residences, attracting new international visitors.
Tekka Place’s construction started in mid-2017, managed by Lum Chang-LaSalle joint venture.
Nearly 50 per cent of the 70,000sqft lettable retail space in the integrated development has been leased or is in advanced negotiations.
“Even though we have been approached by reputable local and international retail and F&B brands, we are selective in curating Tekka Place’s retail mix to both reflect and build on the unique cultural identity of the Little India heritage precinct, and to complement the shopkeeper businesses in the area,” said Kelvin Lum, director at Lum Chang Holdings and spokesperson for the joint venture.
XinTekka, a new food hall concept by Andrew Tan will occupy 10,000sqft of the mall, offering a spread of local culinary favourites with a twist. XinTekka is set to be Singapore’s newest dining destination.
“We very much look forward to the forthcoming completion of Tekka Place, which will add to the revitalisation of the precinct as well as the dynamism of Little India,” said Rajakumar Chandra, chairman of the Little India Shopkeepers and Heritage Association.
