Capture The Essence of Placemaking

Melaka’s newest development is also the only new commercial development within Melaka’s actual heritage zone. Built to exacting UNESCO specifications so as to embrace the surrounding architecture, form and purpose, Grand Pier punctuates the essence of placemaking in the retail sphere where we incorporate the structures which enfold us. A visitor’s journey with us does not begin and end when he or she enters or exits our doors.

We encourage them to take in the vibrancy of Jonker Street while we complement their activities. We softly nudge our visitors outside towards Stadthuys and A’Famosa in order for them to fully appreciate the local artisans and their creations we showcase. We frame for them the nuances of Melaka’s storied history as they trace their way across Portuguese, Dutch, Peranakan, British and local sights. We are the welcome respite for visitors who want shelter from the elements: a safe haven and calling pier where locals and tourists alike know they are truly in Melaka.
