Singapore is often considered a stepping stone into Asia. The culture is a balance of Asian traditions and western influences. With its economic success well documented over the years, businesses from all over the world target to branch out into the city state.
Paya Lebar Quarter (PLQ) encapsulates the business culture of Singapore. PLQ considers happy and healthy staff as the most valuable asset of any business. Its office spaces are integrated with the community and designed for the best work life experience.
With the high take up rates at its workplace ahead of completion in the third quarter of 2018, PLQ is set to become the business hub of the future. Here's why:
PLQ is situated within close proximity between the CBD and Changi Airport. It is within easy reach to anyone on the island via different modes of transportation. PLQ is directly integrated into the Paya Lebar MRT Station which connects to the East, West, and Circle lines. There are also six bus stops around PLQ encompassing over 20 bus routes. Private cars can also reach PLQ via major expressways and roads, such as the Pan Island Expressway, East Coast Parkway, and Nicoll Highway. Heritage rich cultural communities like Joo Chiat and Katong are also within close walking distance from PLQ.
The business hub is in the heart of the community of PLQ. There are 3 residential towers consisting 429 apartment units. Over 200 shops that feature an array of dining, and entertainment offerings dotting 340,000 square feet of space at PLQ Mall. PLQ Plaza and PLQ Parkside are designed to improve the quality of life by providing ample spaces for fitness activities like cycling, running, and yoga.
PLQ is the first in Singapore to register for the WELL Core and Shell Certification, the world's first building standard focused on improving the well-being of its occupants. It is also the first mixed-use development by a private developer in Singapore to receive the Active, Beautiful, and Clean (ABC) Waters Certification from the Public Utilities Board. PLQ has adopted a biophilic design where green spaces cover the landscape of the site area.
The combination of accessibility, functionality, and sustainability in Paya Lebar Quarter has created an ideal environment for businesses to flourish.
