Malaysia’s Toppen Shopping Centre is expanding its footprint with two-storey retail mixed-use space ‘RoofTopp’ above a new nine-storey building.
Standing at over 617,000 square feet, the building will function as a multi-storey car parking area together with a retail space on the rooftop offering F&B, entertainment, health and fitness, and will also offer co-working spaces.
“This development is a testament of our dedication to growing Toppen,” said Adrian Mirea, shopping centre and mixed-use director, Ikea Southeast.
“With the increasing number of Toppen and Ikea visitors per year, the plan was to create a better experience for our visitors coming from near and afar.”
The RoofTopp retail space will span 48,000sqft and connect to the main Toppen building for a smooth customer flow.
“Last October, we unveiled our plans for a new 86-metre elevated pedestrian bridge,” said Vasilisa Kuznetsova, centre manager of Toppen Shopping Centre.
“Today, the bridge allows visitors from Toppen and neighbouring retail complexes like Aeon Tebrau to travel safely between the two destinations.”
“Ease of accessibility via foot and vehicle traffic via the surrounding infrastructure is key to us as each touchpoint is designed to meet the needs of our communities.”
