The Unboxing: The long-awaited opening of The Box is finally here
A 19,864 square feet container park housing 63 units and 190 parking spaces, The Box is officially the nation’s largest container-based establishment as well as a green building featuring a solar energy facility, water harvesting and other steps towards an eco-friendly environment.
Initially conceptualised as a retail space, the idea evolved to incorporate more character and identity. The state-of-the-art structure boasts elements of playfulness with features such as a slide, suspension bridge and a drop pole. At the heart of The Box is a mini-amphitheater that can be viewed from all four corners of the building, which can be used for creative performances.
The Box creates a vibrant ambience for startups and veteran businesses to thrive in. A step in this direction is The Box’s involvement in the marketing of its tenants, which will help to raise brand awareness. It is hoped that this space will become a platform to showcase the talents of Bruneians and a landmark retail space for tourists to explore.
