The redeveloped site would add an additional hundred thousand square feet of floor space taking it from 1.4 million sq ft to 1.5 million sq ft. exercising the maximum allowable floor space for the site with 2.5 Gross Plot Ratio.
This will increase the net lettable area to 1.1 million sq ft from the existing 1 million sq ft.
In an official release it was announced that once developed Perennial Business City would have large floor plates along with large car parking space.
A large rooftop garden is also on the cards along with an amphitheater. This would mark a more urbane improvement from Big Box’s current usage where it is mostly used for warehousing.
Perennial has already applied and obtained confirmation from JTC for rezoning the Big Box site from its current Business 1 (White) to Business Park use.
The 8-storey Big Box Mall site that was completed in 2014, encompasses a land area of 606,600 sq ft. Located in the precinct of the Jurong Lake District this has primarily been used for warehouse retail.
Big Box Mall Site – Excellent Business Location
The Big Box Mall site is strategically located and in close vicinity of the International Business Park and the One-North.
There are several commercial and retail developments nearby including IMM, Westgate, Jem and JCube. Genting Hotel Jurong is also not far away from this site.
Biomedical Sciences and Healthcare companies catering to Ng Teng Fong General Hospital and Jurong Community Hospital have been the main tenants at this site.
