A New Phnom Penh "Suburb"
Boeung Trabek Plaza (Khmer: ផ្សារបឹងត្របែកផ្លាហ្សា, "Phsar Boeung Trabek Plaza", Chinese: 万达密商场) opened to the public in 2011 officiated by the Kingdom's Minister of Commerce, ushering in one of only eighteen large shopping malls in Phnom Penh to help attract private business, industry and commerce to the fast-growing Khan Chamkarmon residential district. Today, it is a prominent grocery-anchored marketplace leading the community's vibrant sharing economy forward, deeply rooted by a decade of operational excellence, prudent real estate development and investments in human capital and technologies.
Traditional Khmer Market Heritage
Known by the community's earliest residents more than 20 years ago, 380-odd fresh food vendors carried on trade and commerce alongside Toul Tompoung Market. Fostering an entrepreneurial ethos that continues to this day, municipal authorities relocated the market in 2008 atop a sprawling 12,000 square metres of land opposite the future Boeung Trabek Plaza. "New Boeung Trabek Market" later relocated onto the grounds of Boeung Trabek Plaza permanently in 2014, inspiring a reimagining of traditional Khmer markets or farmers markets for a new generation. Today, the Market Operator continues leading the way to a food-secure future with basic yet aspirational community-based retail formats, including its open-air grocery & fresh produce markets.
Strong Local Food Systems
Our traditional market heritage today means keeping local food systems strong by helping families to buy nutritious Khmer produce like fresh fish, fruits & vegetables, often at the most affordable prices in Phnom Penh due to competitive trading and distribution systems built over time. Equally important, our vital role in food security within Phnom Penh and income resilience for farmers all across Cambodia enables us to help lead health and hygiene standards higher by our example.
Strong Local Enterprise
Khmer-owned and operated, Boeung Trabek Plaza places environmental and social well-being at the core of its real estate activities. It is part of a $13m mixed-use development that began with bringing affordable residential communities to former swamplands. Today that ethos lives on within experienced property management teams envisioning a future that will be local, digital and sustainable, as it continues delivering long-term economic value to the community, employees and shareholders.
