JCube! - The New Chic Hangout!
Unrivalled shopping experience for the young professionals and residents in western Singapore
Issue: Aug 2010
Resembling an ice cube, JCube is the new multi-faceted and trendy lifestyle hub to look out for in western Singapore
It promises to be the new chic mall with everything that you will ever need all under one roof! From fashion, dining, entertainment and even sports, JCube will be a multi-faceted lifestyle destination offering spectacular design and unrivalled shopping experiences to the young, professionals and residents living and working in Jurong Lake District.
Jurong – the New Business District
JCube is strategically located in the midst of a transportation hub. It is situated at the intersection of Jurong East Central 1 and Jurong Gateway Road (former Jurong East Street 13). The new mall will, therefore, be minutes from the Jurong East MRT Station and bus interchange, capitalising on the vibrancy the area will bring.
“The complete makeover of Jurong Entertainment Centre into a brand new mall will offer significant value creation. JCube will capitalise on increased patronage arising from the Government’s plan to transform Jurong into a vibrant commercial and leisure destination in the next 10 to 15 years,” says Mr James Koh Cher Siang, Chairman of CapitaMall Trust Management Limited.
Jurong Lake District has been envisioned as a unique lakeside destination for business and leisure. It will feature two distinct but complementary precincts: Jurong Gateway, a vibrant commercial hub; and Lakeside, a waterfront leisure destination.
Jurong Gateway will be an attractive location for businesses with an ambitious offering of services comparable to those in town
Jurong Gateway will have an eclectic mix of office, retail, residential, hotel, entertainment, and F&B outlets. It offers a highly attractive location outside the city centre for company headquarters and business services to capitalise on the huge talent pool, the presence of high-value, knowledge-based businesses, tertiary institutions and research hubs in the vicinity.
Lakeside, the new waterfront playground, will offer leisure options and greenery. Plans are in the pipeline for new family edutainment attractions as well as other recreational opportunities at the waterfront. A new world-class science centre will also be developed next to the lake in the near future.
It’s all in the Name and Look
So, with such a strategic location, JCube is well positioned to capture all the buzz at Jurong Lake District.
And the name JCube, already reflects every bit of its role.
The new waterfront playground in Jurong will see many new entertainment and recreational spots for families, injecting vibrancy into the new downtown
The ‘J’ stands for ‘Jurong’, the mall’s location in Jurong while ‘Cube’ epitomises the architectural concept of the mall - a six-sided development with façade walls designed to resemble an ice cube.
The name also connotes the mall’s multi-faceted offerings and the Juxtaposition of enJoyable shopping and sports in Jurong.
Designed by Singapore’s leading architectural firm, RSP Architects, in collaboration with international architectural and design firm, Benoy, the new shopping mall and its concept will definitely be the trendsetting lifestyle destination for professionals, managers, executives and businessmen as well as residents in Jurong.
Rinking in the Crowds
Expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2012, JCube will comprise five levels of retail, two basement levels of car park and a rooftop landscaped plaza. It will have approximately 204,000 square feet in net lettable area and is expected to be twice the original size as when it was formerly the Jurong Entertainment Centre.
“Drawing shoppers to the mall will be the latest high-street brands, fashionable restaurants and cafés, pubs, bars, Cineplex, supermarket and even a skating ring. JCube and IMM will complement each other and be the definitive shopping malls in the western part of Singapore,” Mr Simon Ho, Chief Executive Officer of CapitaMall Trust Management Limited, adds.
Visitors will be able to shop, dine and entertain in round-the-clock F&B outlets, pubs and bars. Some of these food outlets will be located around Singapore’s first and fully integrated Olympic-size ice skating rink on Level Three. Complete with a 463-seat gallery and changing rooms, Singapore will be able to host international ice skating and ice hockey events and competitions at the rink.
The name “JCube” already oozes fun entertainment and vibrancy, setting the tone for the much-anticipated new mall
Flying the Green Flag
Like all the other CapitaLand malls, JCube will also be flying the green flag. The eco-friendly mall will be fitted with energy-saving features such as a rainwater harvesting tank and an ice rink grey-water recycling system. Waste heat from the ice rink chiller will also be recycled to heat the water at the rink’s shower rooms and the ice re-surfacing machine.
A landscaped garden on the rooftop with a Teflon-covered event space and an outdoor terrace on Level Two will provide the building with green lungs and serve to soften the building façade as well.
With all these offerings and more, JCube is already creating a buzz and an air of anticipation as the new chic hangout in Singapore’s west!
