Lendlease’s Paya Lebar Quarter Mall nears completion in Singapore
Paya Lebar Quarter (PLQ) Mall by Lendlease is set to open in Singapore on October 24, with a preview to commence on August 30.
The approximately SG$3.6 billion (US$2.6 billion) development is Lendlease’s largest to date in Singapore and home to its new Asia headquarters. The project’s three Grade A office towers and mall are approximately 90-per-cent leased with the rest under final negotiations. Its residential component, Park Place Residences at PLQ, is over 99-per-cent sold with just three units still available.
PLQ has direct links to the dual line Paya Lebar MRT interchange and a seamless connection to the wider Park Connector Network. There is a 22,000-strong workforce and 1 million residents within a seven-minute walking radius of the complex.
“We are proud to be contributing to the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s (URA) vision of the transformation of Paya Lebar, the most centralised sub-regional business and lifestyle hub in Singapore,” said Lendlease’s CEO Asia Tony Lombardo. “PLQ is a great showcase of Lendlease’s core expertise in urban regeneration and placemaking by combining quality retail, entertainment and lifestyle options with community-centric spaces that resonate with the rich heritage and culture of the area.”
Joining the mall’s anchor tenants Shaw Theatres, FairPrice Finest and KopiTime – a new thematic food court by Kopitiam – PLQ Mall will welcome numerous new F&B concepts such as Mom’s Touch by No Signboard Group; Hayai (zero pork, zero lard onigirazu Japanese rice sandwich); Wursthans Switzerland and Fong Sheng Hao Taiwanese charcoal-grilled toast and milk tea cafe.
Internationally recognised brands at the mall include Uniqlo, Tokyu Hands, Foot Locker, Cotton On, Laneige, Innisfree, Etude House, Haidilao Hot Pot, The Providore, Wine Connection and Starbucks Reserve.
