The construction of the multi-storey car park started in April 2021 and is expected to be completed by Q3 of 2022.

The Topp is the centre’s crown jewel rooftop at Toppen Shopping Centre, Johor Bahru. Since the launch, The Topp has become a meeting place of Johor Bahru community, where people of all ages can enjoy various activities organised by the centre. Hence, a similar concept will be developed for the multi-storey car park. There will be retail space on the rooftop offering F&B, entertainment, health and fitness and co-working space at the lifestyle RoofTopp.

In line with the shopping centre’s vision to enhance seamless customer experience from different customer touchpoints, the idea of building Lifestyle RoofTopp on a car park space will also help accommodate the high volume of shoppers who are visiting Toppen to either shop, dine, wall-climb with friends, or cool down at the splash park.

“Now, more than ever, we know how important it is to encourage community-building and create a better everyday life for the many people visiting our meeting places. We rearrange our spaces according to what the community needs, and co-create events and unique experiences for them to enjoy. This cannot be done without the tenants who have been fully supportive of us since the beginning. This is just one of the many ways to improve ourselves as we continue to make Toppen the heart and hub of the Johor Bahru community,” said Mirea.
