JCube, Singapore’s Super-Mall
JCube, a new large-scale Singaporean mall (scheduled for completion in 2012), is set to present a brand new model of mall-style shopping for the young working professionals and residents of west Singapore.
Located in the Jurong Lake business district of the country, the space – designed by Singapore-based RSP Architects Planners & Engineers – aims to trump standard malls by positioning itself as a trendsetting, multifaceted lifestyle destination.
Designed to resemble a giant, geometric ice cube, the building will consist of five floors of retail, two basement car park levels, and a landscaped rooftop plaza. It will also include a number of leisure facilities, including bars, restaurants, and the country’s first Olympic-sized ice-skating rink, complete with a 463-seater gallery.
Cutting edge in every way, it has already won the country’s highest award for sustainability.
