The Exchange TRX in Kuala Lumpur is set to become the newest luxury epicenter in the city, with an array of shopping, dining, and entertainment options all under one roof. This upcoming shopping mall in TRX is slated to open its doors to the public in the fourth quarter of 2023 and is expected to be a game-changer in the retail industry in Malaysia.

Developed by Lendlease, a leading international property and infrastructure group, The Exchange TRX will span over 1.7 million square feet across seven levels. The mall will feature over 500 retail and food and beverage outlets, including international and local luxury brands, as well as a 12-screen cinema complex and a fitness center. It sits directly beneath The Exchange 106, which is the core of Tun Razak Exchange. Standing at a whopping 453.6 meters, this mega skycraper is the second tallest building in Malaysia, the third tallest building in Southeast Asia, and currently the 14th tallest building in the world.

The Exchange TRX is designed to cater to the needs of the modern shopper, with a focus on experiential retail. The mall will offer a range of immersive experiences, such as augmented reality shopping and interactive displays, which will allow customers to engage with brands in new and exciting ways.

Dining will be a highlight at The Exchange TRX, which will offer five dining precincts, namely Food Exchange, Concourse Dining, Park Dining, Premium Dining and Dining Terrace. Each precinct will have over 100 dining outlets.

Avid moviegoers can convene at GSC’s Asean Flagship Store to check out the latest blockbusters on the region’s largest IMAX screens. Trendy homeowners can delight in the latest products to spruce up their abode when they visit the iconic premium Japanese department store, Seibu, which will also be bringing in Malaysia’s first Japanese “depachika” (the Japanese rendition of the words “department” and “chika”, or basement) food hall, which will take up 250,000 sq ft offering a variety of gourmet delicacies. Japan’s leading stationery stalwart Loft will also be making its Malaysian debut here.

If you’re in need of a cuppa, escape to the Central Exchange Atrium where you’ll sip coffee like royalty at Moroccan-themed café Bacha Coffee or indulge in Italian gourmet chocolates at the Venchi Boutique, part of a stable of new-to-market brands.

On the fashion front, brands are putting dialogue with customers at the centre via interactive and exclusive in-store experiences. The Luxury floor is already fully tenanted, with the LVMH Group opening 17 brands such as Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior and Tiffany & Co; and the Kering Group bringing in Gucci, Saint Laurent and Balenciaga, and more. Discerning clienteles who subscribe to the sartorial philosophy of Mademoiselle Gabrielle Bonheur “Coco” Chanel will be pleased with the new, full-line store that celebrates the French house’s long-standing heritage. Another name to look out for includes eyewear expert Gentle Monster.

The mall will also feature a range of green spaces and outdoor areas, providing visitors with a breath of fresh air amidst the hustle and bustle of the city. The rooftop garden, which spans over 200,000 square feet, will be the largest in the city and will offer stunning views of the Kuala Lumpur skyline. Visitors will also stay in luxury here, with Malaysia’s first Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants set to open with 471 rooms.

One of the unique features of The Exchange TRX is its integration with the TRX Lifestyle Quarter, a mixed-use development that combines residential, commercial, and entertainment components. The Lifestyle Quarter will be connected to the mall via a pedestrian bridge, providing visitors with seamless access to a range of amenities and services. The project is also directly connected to the TRX MRT station, just a few stops away from Bukit Bintang.
