Thread: Funan mall will never be the same again

    Sad to hear that, very typical capitaland style. It's probably to free up more retail space to generate higher rental yield. The spacious atrium is potential for much more retail space lol

    I'm very sure rental will be driven up... Probably no room for small shops to survive

    The small shops there I think some so small they will disappear... cost to move an renovate is not cheap.

    As for the big ones....

    TK - Shame for TK who spent so much on their prior renovation... and a good one at that - but they knew risks of Funan closing down. (TK is very smart, and have loyal customer base, whatever they do will be good! )

    Alan Photo - Nil Customer service - with lazy ah beng staff that sit on chairs all day... so they may as well stick with Sim Lim.

    SLR Revo - they are trying hard and congrats to them... but ditch that green shirts - looks like a petrol station uniform.

    Click / Eclipse (aka: Max Photo).... they try too hard and had an innovative design... but they have too much wasted floor area, and pricing is not as aggressive as SLR / TK / or Cathay to a degree. ( Their move to open a sister brand store is dumb one - Eclipse... focus on one thing and do it well! )

    Red Dot - They could move anywhere, they have a fan base but are not a "camera store" so to speak.

    Challenger - Lots of money to burn... but their camera staff suck.. sorry. (great place for I.T. gear though!)

    Harvey Norman - Crappy Aussie company.... and over priced cameras... good place for a TV though!

    Agreed. Hope this project fail and no one rent from them upon completion of the renovation due to their high asking rental ...

    Sion has always been what Sion does ... just like his preoccupation with feminine imaginary in all his topical context for humor heheh. Nothing satiric but it's Kopitiam afterall.

    Properties in Sim Lim and Adelphi are owned by individual owners. They will not pick up the tab for a makeover nor to suffer loss of income/rental during the makeover.

    Why do you think shops are still being taken up when rental is increasing by the year? These businesses just passed on the costs to consumers.

    On a more serious note; what kind of "experiential creative hub" are they going to build?

    I asume it's not going to focus on selling electronics anymore?

    "experiential creative hub" is just a marketing thing. In reality, they will do anything to bring in revenue.

    I'm sure that they have done enough research on the project, able achieve 80% and above of their goal before they act, won't be doing anything impromptu or on impulse like most others do.
