The Exchange TRX, the lifestyle precinct of the Tun Razak Exchange (TRX) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, is set to open in the fourth quarter of 2023. Developed by Lendlease, it is the group’s largest integrated development in Asia covering a 17-acre area.
The masterplan’s centrepiece and a notable feature of The Exchange TRX is its seamless integration to a 10-acre rooftop public activated park. Designed by Lendlease, in partnership with landscape architects Oculus & Pentago, the TRX City Park will house a biodiverse ecosystem of over 150,000 plantings from close to 150 native plant species.
The park is also aimed to become one of Kuala Lumpur’s most scenic locations, hosting red carpet galas, festivals, concerts, movie premieres and international exhibitions.
“Our vision and the cornerstone of Lendlease’s strategy with The Exchange TRX is to create a city defining project within TRX, Malaysia’s first International Financial District,” said Mitch Wilson, project director for The Exchange TRX and head of retail at Lendlease Malaysia.
“The Exchange TRX sits at the heart of TRX – which when completed is expected to be the working and living space for a community of 45,000 people. This, together with the masterplan’s high-quality infrastructure and unparalleled connectivity, demonstrates the precinct’s enormous commercial potential.”
Mr Wilson added, “When we open our doors to the public in Q4 2023, this iconic social and lifestyle destination will appeal to not only an increasingly thriving on-site population but to all Malaysians as well as international
According to Lendlease, The Exchange TRX is conceived as ‘a lifestyle precinct in the park’. It will include more than 400 experience stores spanning only four retail levels featuring new-to-market brands, statement stores, and reimagined store formats.
The Exchange TRX sits within the Tun Razak Exchange (TRX) modelled after international financial districts such as Canary Wharf in London, Marina Bay in Singapore, and the International Financial Centre in Hong Kong.
