Bukit Panjang community to welcome highly-anticipated family and active lifestyle hub Hillion Mall in early 2017
90 per cent of retail space taken up at Singapore’s first integrated development and transport hub in the West
Singapore, November 24, 2016 – More than 220,000 residents1 and 760,000 commuters2 in Bukit Panjang can look forward to the highly-anticipated opening of Hillion Mall in the first quarter of 2017.
To date, 90 per cent of the mall’s net lettable area of approximately 174,730 square feet has already been taken up by approximately 100 retail as well as food and beverage tenants who are keen to take advantage of Hillion Mall’s strategic location and cater to the needs of the area’s fast-growing population. Hillion Mall is developed by Sim Lian JV (BP Retail) Pte. Ltd.3 with Knight Frank appointed as the project’s Retail Consultant and Managing Agent.
The first of its kind in the West of Singapore, the mall is seamlessly connected with Hillion Residences as well as a bus interchange, MRT station on the Downtown Line and LRT services to make Bukit Panjang the ninth town in Singapore to have an integrated transport hub4. Directly connected to Bukit Panjang MRT Station via an underpass at Basement 2 of the Hillion Mall, commuters will enjoy easy access to the entire transport network. The mall is also well served by the Bukit Timah Expressway (BKE) and the Kranji Expressway (KJE).
“Set to be the pulse of Bukit Panjang with the unparalleled accessibility and convenience of an integrated transport hub, Hillion Mall continues to see strong uptake and interest amongst retailers who recognise that this is what the people living and working in Bukit Panjang have long wanted; not just the convenience of getting their daily essentials nearby, but a place for families and the community to come together,” said Mr. Kuik Sing Beng, Executive Director, Sim Lian Group.
