The Row adapts twenty-two 1940s shophouses into a neighbourhood of innovative and independent offices, cafes, bars, shops and an exciting event space.
Once typical long and narrow terraced residential units, these shophouses were converted into “Asian Heritage Row”, a popular cluster of restaurants and bars, in the early 2000s.
Fast forward nearly a decade, the units at the Row now present an opportunity for reinvention into a mix of uses suitable for the businesses and lifestyles of today.
The Row aspires to support urban regeneration through adaptive reuse. It embraces a fresh redevelopment approach that focuses on the co-existence of old and new and the introduction of greenery and natural light throughout.
An antidote to Kuala Lumpur’s ubiquitous towers, The Row retains the charisma of the old, but refreshes the shophouses with a new, design-conscious functionality.
At the centre of The Row is a cluster of independent local shops, cafes, bars and coworking space situated around a new publicly accessible event space, Slate. See who is here.
The Row offers a central location in Kuala Lumpur and a fresh design for creative and small businesses who seek an alternative to the traditional office tower. Both coworking space and unique office suites are available for lease.
Homegrown, award-winning cafes, restaurants and shops, each with their own local following. Together. Without entering a mall..
The Row reintroduces communal public spaces to street life with its alleyway beer garden shaded by old trees, a landscaped front plaza, and a dramatic event hall which doubles as a shaded public space by day.
No longer a row of identical houses, the segregated front yards of the past are being knitted into a high street, reminiscent of a “five-foot way”, where visitors can explore and linger.
