Project outcome

Jem® is a mixed use retail and commercial development. It is the second project in Singapore that is delivered through Lendlease's unique integrated business model, allowing us to respond to the needs of all stakeholders' through the entire property value chain.

Jem® is well connected due to its close proximity to the Jurong East Bus Interchange, the above ground pedestrian connectivity with neighbouring sites, and the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station receiving both north-south and east-west train lines.

The centre spans six trading levels (five levels above ground and one level of basement) housing over 200 units. The anchor tenants include IKEA's first small-store concept in Southeast Asia within a shopping mall, spreading across three floors; Cathay Cineplexes, providing premium theatre experience with ten screens including two Platinum Suites; FairPrice Xtra, an approximately 6,500 square metre hypermarket providing everyday grocery shopping experiences; and H&M's first suburban store in Singapore occupying close to 1,800 square metres of retail space and spanning over three floors. The mall applied Lendlease's retail planning principles to the design, which ensured an efficient, enticing and economically successful development.

The office space sitting above the retail area will lead Singapore towards the new wave of office design by responding to the global push for larger and more efficient floor plates. The design maximises natural daylight and incorporate unique workspace for breakout areas and meetings. The combination of a separate, distinct entrance with mall access will maximise use of the leisure and amenity services.
