Offering a broad entertainment experience and lively social environment, the development is characterised by a vibrant, high fashion, lifestyle atmosphere coupled with economical and practical design. It generates a dynamic and contemporary retail atmosphere and challenges the client’s established retail presumptions, offering a new and exciting identity for their future developments.
