Talk to Billy Ip about Retail
The eight levels of the centre are split into a dual mood design, with Basement 1 to Level 3 acting as an urban stage or platform. Level 4 represents the imagined Isle of Laputa, and marks the start of another world within the mall – a place to discover new experiences and indulge curiosity. From Levels 4 through 7, the retail concept focuses on lifestyle experiences and passion clusters – spaces where visitors can go to indulge in their interests and hobbies, and meet others with similar passions, thereby connecting and creating communities. Sports and style feature on Level 5 where visitors can use the rock climbing wall and indoor basketball court, while on Level 6, aside from a cinema, there is a craft area for art and DIY. Level 7 is home to Yama, a magical forest-themed place to play, eat and drink, filled with natural light and a wealth of greenery. Here there are a number of fine dining restaurants, some of which overlook the basketball court.
