PLQ Mall set to welcome shoppers on 30 August

15 Aug 2019

Strong line-up of quality office tenants and new retail concepts at Paya Lebar Quarter.

Paya Lebar Quarter (PLQ) by Lendlease continues to realise its vision of transforming Paya Lebar into a vibrant business and lifestyle hub. The three Grade A office towers — home to 18 multi-national corporations and leading Singapore organisations — and PLQ Mall are approximately 90% leased and under final negotiations. A preview of PLQ Mall will commence on 30 August, with grand opening celebrations set for 24 October. 

The approximately S$3.6 billion landmark development is Lendlease’s largest to date in Singapore and home to its new Asia headquarters. Its residential component, Park Place Residences at PLQ, is over 99% sold with just three units available for sale.

The new city precinct supports Singapore’s car-lite vision with its superb connectivity. PLQ has direct links to the dual line Paya Lebar MRT interchange and seamless connection to the wider Park Connector Network. The 22,000-strong workforce and one million residents  within a seven-minute walking radius of PLQ will benefit from the excellent connectivity to the rest of Singapore through PLQ.

A placemaking project, PLQ will bring a wide range of alfresco dining options at PLQ Parkside; a sheltered and activated PLQ Plaza designed to host year-round events, festivals and celebrations, outdoor kiosks embedded with programmable LED light display; a water fountain; and an outdoor children’s play area amidst 100,000 square feet of lush greenery that is both pedestrian and personal mobility device-friendly.

“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. 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,” said Tony Lombardo, CEO, Asia, Lendlease. 

Home to leading corporations and Lendlease’s first global flexible workplace solution 

As an integral component of the URA’s plans for the 12-hectare Paya Lebar Central precinct to be a sub-regional business hub for Singapore, PLQ Workplace, with close to 900,000 sq ft of space, is home to leading enterprises including CBRE, JLL, PropertyGuru, NTUC Income, Great Eastern, Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS), Bayer, as well as Virgin Active’s first fitness club in the east. 

Leveraging its experience in developing hundreds of workplaces for leading corporates globally, Lendlease has also launched its inaugural flexible workplace solution, csuites, at PLQ. The new flexible workplace combines the benefits of premier corporate offices, such as technology integration, privacy and security with the advantages of shared services and collaborative spaces offered by co-working. csuites offers companies the flexibility of shorter leases, seamless move-in experience and sustainability credentials, while enabling them to retain their own culture and identity. 

Office workers at PLQ can leverage the publicly-accessible high-speed Wi-Fi throughout the development, which enables them to work from desks and boardrooms to terraces, cafes, parks and restaurants around PLQ, supporting the new way of working which is more informal and collaborative. 

New concepts join a quality retail cluster  

The quality of brands and new retail concepts at PLQ Mall, with over 200 shops, add another dimension to the diverse options already available for consumers in the area.
