“Our strong tenancy rate is a resounding vote of confidence given by leading international and local brands for the new retail concept that Lendlease is introducing to the market with The Exchange TRX,” says The Exchange TRX project director and Lendlease Malaysia retail head Mitch Wilson.

“As Kuala Lumpur’s new social heart, The Exchange TRX disrupts the landscape with its socially immersive, experience-rich approach, reshaping the future of retail.”

Apart from being an exciting retail and lifestyle destination, The Exchange TRX’s true ambition is to become a physical and emotional connection point for the communities within Tun Razak Exchange (TRX) and beyond this 28.3ha development.

“The modern retail experience must consider the impact that it has on its stakeholders,” adds Wilson.

“Being the social component of an international financial district (Tun Razak Exchange), we have created communal spaces within The Exchange TRX that will hopefully serve as a catalyst for an ideas-driven economy, culminating with TRX City Park – the largest rooftop public park to be opened in Kuala Lumpur in recent times.”

The 4.05ha rooftop TRX City Park has forest trails and even children’s play areas for visitors to enjoy.The 4.05ha rooftop TRX City Park has forest trails and even children’s play areas for visitors to enjoy.

The Exchange TRX is poised to be the centrepiece of Kuala Lumpur’s growth, setting new standards in retail, dining and leisure experiences.

Its opening is expected to generate new job opportunities, contributing to investment prospects and economic growth while offering a glimpse of the future of luxury retail and urban living.
