Funan mall 92% leased ahead of June 28 reopening.
Funan has achieved 92 per cent in commitments for retail leasing to date as well as 98 per cent in pre-leasing commitments for its twin office blocks, a joint media statement by CapitaLand Mall Trust's (CMT) manager and CapitaLand said yesterday. The mall will welcome shoppers again on June 28, two months ahead of schedule, after a three-year redevelopment. CMT's manager expects more retail leases to be signed in the coming months, said Mr Tony Tan, chief executive officer of CapitaLand Mall Trust Management.
With a total gross floor area of 887,000 sq ft, the Funan integrated development comprises a shopping mall, two office blocks and lyf Funan Singapore - the Singapore flagship of The Ascott Limited's lyf co-living serviced residence - which is slated to open in the fourth quarter of this year.
Funan is located in the Civic District, with a direct underpass linking it to City Hall MRT station.
The mall will house more than 180 brands, of which one-third are new-to-market, new concept stores or flagships. These include consumer technology firm Dyson, with its first stand-alone store in Singapore, and British folding bike manufacturer Brompton Junction's South-east Asian flagship store.
