In the heart of the city, where history meets modernity, a revolution is about to take place. 29th November 2023 will mark the grand opening of The Exchange TRX, a destination that promises to redefine how we live, shop, and socialise. This much-anticipated development is set to become a shining star on the cityscape, offering an array of experiences that will cater to its visitors’ diverse tastes and interests.
Retail therapy for every kind of shopper
Boasting a diverse range of shopping options, from high-end fashion boutiques to niche specialty stores, visitors can expect to find everything they need, and then some. Here are some retail brands to expect at The Exchange TRX:
- Gentle Monster, a Korean eyewear brand known for its avant-garde designs.
- Fashion brand Maison Kitsuné and its 28th branch of the acclaimed Café Kitsuné.
- California-based, celeb-approved athleisure brand Alo Yoga.
- Finnish textile, clothing, and home furnishings brand Marimekko.
- Cult beauty brand, Drunk Elephant, debuting its first brick-and-mortar location worldwide.
- La Prairie, a Swiss luxury skincare company.
- Guerlain, one of the oldest luxury cosmetics companies in the world.
Seibu, one of The Exchange TRX’s key tenants, will take up over 250,000 square feet over four levels. Being one of the biggest department stores in Japan, Seibu will be the first department store in Malaysia to carry more than 400 luxury, worldwide contemporary, and Japanese fashion brands.
No lifestyle hub is complete without a culinary scene to match. Tipsy Flamingo, created by Singapore‘s Tipsy Collective, will feature a distinctive fusion of futuristic design and the energetic atmosphere of an 80s-inspired summer pool party.
Amazonas, the newest project from The Kenny Hills Hospitality Group, brings a dynamic Latin American rooftop restaurant and bar concept with shared foods from the region, open-fire cooking, entertaining drinks, and late-night DJ fiestas.
Seibu’s own premium Japanese cuisine hall, located on the building’s ground floor, offers a bewildering variety of traditional Japanese foods, including ramen, sushi, and a sake bar.
A green oasis in the city

Open to the public, it offers flowing greenery, play spaces for the kids, water features, and exquisitely shaded niches that will accommodate everything from peaceful reflection and outdoor dining to community gatherings, sports, and recreational activities.
