Restoration work and structural repairs were being undertaken at the market to give it a face-lift and to modernise the complex in order to provide shoppers the 'shopping at a modern mall' experience. The market now has a glass facade, a spacious and well-lit corridor, a 40 per cent increase in the carpet area of shops through design modifications and a change in the orientation of the shops so they open outwards into the new stilted corridor.
