TOPPEN Shopping Centre is planning to extend its ‘retailtainment’ space with a lifestyle RoofTopp, offering a unique experience for the community.
Built on a nine-storey structure that provides the community with more parking spaces, RoofTopp will be a retail mix at the top two floors, offering F&B, entertainment, health and fitness, as well as co-working spaces.
Construction of the multi-storey car park started in April 2021 and is expected to be completed by Q3 of 2022.
The multi-storey carpark and lifestyle RoofTopp is expected to evenly distribute visitors and allow tenants to create their own crowd within the different large spaces available.
The centre’s crown jewel rooftop, known as The Topp, has been a space where people of all ages can enjoy the various activities organised by the centre.
“This development is a testament of our dedication to growing Toppen. With the increasing number of Toppen and IKEA visitors per year, we hope to create a better experience for our visitors coming from near and afar,” said IKEA Southeast Asia shopping centre and mixed-used director Adrian Mirea.
The lifestyle RoofTopp will be seamlessly integrated on-top of a 9-storey, 617,000 sq ft car park space with approximately 1,600 parking bays to provide visitors easy access from Toppen, IKEA Tebrau and the surrounding areas.
Its retail component is 48,000 sq feet with high ceilings and is connected to the main Toppen building for a smooth customer flow.
“We rearrange our spaces according to what the community needs, and co-create events and unique experiences for them to enjoy. This is just one of the many ways to improve ourselves as we continue to make Toppen the heart and hub of the Johor Bahru community,” Mirea continued. – May 1, 2021
