As part of the concept design for the Commercial District, UMICS’ Merchant Street will be optimised by including additional office suites above. In similar fashion to the world-renown covered shopping streets in Japan, the retail portion will occupy the first and second floors of the building, while the remaining floors above will be designed and built to include a multi-storey car park and most importantly, modern office suites.

The integrated and connected areas linking the various precincts will be of high standards, featuring public furniture, lighting, cycling/walking paths as well as eateries and general amenities. Safe and accessible linkages between the various buildings will provide an ideal environment to accommodate the needs of SME and corporations for a strategic office location and ideal environment for staff.
