Previously, the space was a nightclub and hotel and it exudes the similar vibe with a Western motel with a low building and a long hallway. If you are wondering what is it going to be like now, well, it is a mixture of container lots and main building. The 80,000 square feet space will be housing food, culture, and art stuff! That’s right, it has a similar style with Hin Bus Depot in Georgetown!

First and foremost, there’s a Jellyfish Garden. You read that correctly. No worries, there are no actual jellyfish that was harmed in the process of making the garden. The Jellyfish Garden is a long pole with a round top with leaves falling downwards! It’s a mixture of urban, and nature. This is followed by a lot of flowers, and plants scattered around the courtyard of the pop-up mall.
