Wisma Atria launches new $31m facade with fashion show


Guests were treated to an evening of fashion and music when Wisma Atria officially launched their new $31 million facade on Thursday.

Nearly 300 people, consisting of members of the media, Wisma Atria tenants and VIP guests attended the launch, with performances by the T'ang Quartet and 53A, followed by a much-anticipated fashion show.

The runway show offered a close up view of the latest collection from the new tenants in the revamped shopping centre - Coach, Timewise by Cortina Watch, Dickson Watch & Jewellery and TAG Heuer.

The new facade took about a year to construct, featuring a new flight of steps, spanning the entire 123m facade, that light up at night. Besides improving accessibility into the mall, these stairs also provide a permanent flood control measure, eliminating the need for mechanical flood barriers.The new exterior is also now lined with duplex storefronts of flagship stores and international retailers.
