Recently refurbished by Aedas, MOKO Mall in Mongkok has a fresh new look

Situated in Mongkok East, MOKO Mall (previously named Grand Century Place) has completed its refurbishment by Aedas. The shopping mall, which was constructed decades ago, acts as part of a mixed-use development that connects the mass transit railway, bus terminal, pedestrian footbridge and a hotel.

Aedas has completed the challenging refurbishment throughout eight phases while the mall maintained operation, and the result meets modern retail needs and injects new energy to the dense neighbourhood.

To improve the existing layout and circulation, Aedas strategically transformed the atrium into an elegant form and extended it to the northern part of the mall, allowing shoppers to locate themselves easily within. By realigning the circulation, the atrium has become the focal point of the architecture and a connective hub.

The new addition of an express escalator directs traffic to the second retail level and significantly alleviates the crowding problem on the first retail level where people always pass by on their way to and from the railway station, while at the same time, maximising the commercial value of the second retail level.

The fresh new look of MOKO Mall is inspired by  nature. Delicate touches such as trees, leaves, petals, rivers, clouds and stars can be seen in every corner. The use of indoor greenery and natural material like timber enhance the natural feel, ensuring that the new design demonstrates a harmonious mix of nature and practicality.
