Singapore / Melaka – 1-Group, one of Singapore’s leading purveyors of lifestyle-hospitality concepts, inked the deal for a new partnership with Hatten, one of Malaysia’s top property developers specialising in integrated commercial, residential and hospitality projects on 16 May 2023.
In a ceremony graced by Chief Minister of Melaka, Yang Amat Berhormat Datuk Seri Ab Rauf Yusoh, the pair entered a joint venture to bring 1-Altitude Melaka – a fully integrated lifestyle destination that is set to launch in stages throughout Q3 and Q4 of 2023.
Comprising seven world-class restaurant, bar, café and club concepts; a viewing gallery; and a co- working space, 1-Altitude Melaka sits atop the highest point in Melaka (Hatten City), boasting unmatched views of the UNESCO listed Jonker Heritage district, the Portuguese village and the Melaka Straits. The project marks 1-Group’s first foray overseas; as hospitality trailblazers with a track record of conceptualizing progressive, iconic venues across Singapore, 1-Group will export a collection of their homegrown Singaporean concepts to one of the most iconic locations in Asia. Their signature flair will combine with specially curated touches, developed together with local artisans and craftsmen, to create the leading integrated lifestyle destination in Melaka.
Hatten, 1-Group’s partner for 1-Altitude Melaka, are an award-winning real estate conglomerate comprising an ecosystem of hotels, malls and residences. Much like 1-Group, Hatten is committed to creating trend-setting, high quality concepts that ultimately enrich lives and communities.
Mr Joseph Ong, Managing Director of 1-Group, said: “1-Group’s ethos is centered on creating unforgettable hospitality experiences in iconic destinations. Melaka feels like a natural destination for our first project outside of Singapore; attracting swathes of domestic and international tourists each year and boasting an incredible food scene, the city is primed to welcome a one-stop hospitality and entertainment destination.”
"By combining the expertise and strengths of both Hatten and 1-Group, we aim to elevate luxury dining with unparalleled, immersive customer experiences that captivate senses at 1-Altitude Melaka," stated Dato’ Colin Tan, Executive Chairman and Managing Director of Hatten.
Spanning five storeys across 100,000 square feet, 1-Altitude Melaka’s slew of concepts will open in phases between July-December 2023.
