Sunway’s Big Box is expected to open just in time for the December festivities
Sunway Malls had finally unveiled its Sunway Big Box claimed to be the first retail hybrid park at its key tenant unveiling ceremony in Iskandar Puteri, Johor. The occupancy of the tenancy is at 85% ahead of its opening, promising a fulfilling mall experience once their doors are open to the public.
Some of the 36 key partners unveiled at Sunway Big Box to date are NSK, SSF, BookXcess, Golden Screen Cinemas, MOX, Sports Direct, EnerG X Park, Ace Hardware, Mr DIY, Tomaz, Caltex, Starbucks, Burger King, Sketchers, Universal Traveller, Thai Odyssey, Maxis, U Mobile, Mr Dakgalbi, Absolute Thai, Gong Cha, Tealive, Famous Amos and Pet Lovers Centre.
Spread over 24-acre land, Sunway Big Box is integrated with an upcoming 280-room hotel development, a 170,000 sq ft NLA (net lettable area) office tower and is connected to a 38-acre extreme park component. The two-floor cluster would be offering close to 100 retail, F&B and entertainment stores.
“Supported by a hotel and an office component, Sunway Big Box is a unique retail development that is planned for the future, aligned to Sunway Iskandar’s masterplan to build Nature’s Capital City. Sunway Big Box is meant to be the place for people from all walks of life to congregate, shop and socialise,” said CEO of Sunway Malls and Theme Parks HC Chan in his opening speech.
The retail park slated to open by mid-December 2019 is the closest to Singapore via the Coastal Highway Southern Link (CSHL) with a catchment of 200,000 within 20 minutes.
Also, Sunway Iskandar had signed a MoU with Singapore technology company CtrlWorks, the creator of Scootbee, the world’s first self-distributing personal mobility devices in Sunway Iskandar and the first in Malaysia too. The Scootbee will provide an affordable, sustainable and clean mode of transportation.
