The massive development by Landlease in the Paya Lebar regional business hub comprises a retail mall (PLQ Mall), three office towers (PLQ1,2 & 3) and three residential towers (Park Place Residences). The Paya Lebar Quarter restaurants and cafes offer interesting dining options and cater to different budgets.
