Funan inspires real estate innovation and will offer a new live-work-play paradigm in Singapore. An exciting lifestyle destination plugged into the world of tech- and socially-savvy consumers will be coming up on the site of the former Funan DigitaLife Mall, which closed from 1 July 2016, right in the heart of Singapore's Civic & Cultural District at 100 North Bridge Road. Building on its legacy as the definitive IT mall in Singapore over the last three decades, Funan will go beyond selling IT products to incorporating the tech experience throughout the entire integrated development.
A new paradigm for live, work and play Funan has a total gross floor area (GFA) of 887,000 sq ft. Occupying more than half the GFA at 500,000 sq ft is the six-storey retail component, which comprises four levels above ground and two basement levels.
Funan's centrepiece will be a platform to inspire retail innovation with a net lettable area of 324,000 square feet (sq ft), the retail component is positioned as a platform to inspire retail innovation with a strong focus on enabling shoppers to enjoy a myriad of experiences in line with their interests. Its offerings are organised around "passion clusters", such as "tech", "fit" and "taste".
Funan has three towers that sit above, including two six-storey premium Grade A office towers from Level 5 to Level 10 with a GFA of 266,000 sq ft. The two office towers will have different identities - smart offices in the Northern Tower and innovative studios in Southern Tower - to cater to the needs of a variety of businesses. Completing the integrated development is a nine-storey block housing 279 co-living apartment units from Level 4 to Level 12 with a GFA of 121,000 sq ft.
With a completion date in 4Q 2019, Funan will be a unique retail destination that complements the offerings in Raffles City Singapore and other developments in the Civic & Cultural District.
