IKEA Southeast Asia had announced that the development of Toppen Shopping Centre, a 1.1 million square-feet shopping destination in the heart of Tebrau, will be seamlessly integrated with IKEA Tebrau and is expected to be ready by the third quarter of 2019.
“Our belief in co-creation allows us to partner with different segments of our business, such as IKEA stores with our shopping centres, along with other tenants, the surrounding community and the people. This means we do not simply build a shopping centre for the sake of a shopping centre but we listen and connect with the local context to address people and planet issues,” said Managing Director of IKEA Southeast Asia, Christian Rojkjaer.
He added that the mature community here allows IKEA to create significant partnerships with both community and business owners.
The name Toppen is Swedish for ‘Awesome or Fabulous’, and also a wordplay with Top and Open which reflects with the building’s rooftop design, featuring a large multi-purpose piazza, community garden, play areas, sporting facilities, a cinema as well as alfresco eateries catered to families and friends to create their own personal shopping experience.
There will be 4 levels of international and local retailers, family-friendly facilities and activities as well as multi-purpose spaces, great entertainment, dining and sporting experiences, making it a shopping and leisure destination for everyone here.
