The $100 million building will become the brand’s Southeast Asian hub and house the first-ever RazerStore in Singapore.

While the building hosts Razer’s growing workforce, only 3 out of the 7 floors will be occupied by the company. The rest of the floors will be rented out to other tenants to foster a larger tech ecosystem in Singapore.

With the opening, Razer also announced that they will be increasing their headcount from 600 to 1,000.

Some of these roles will be entirely new and created specifically to cater to Razer’s goal of expanding into the hardware, software, and service industries.

Aside from the office spaces, Channel NewsAsia (CNA) reports that the new headquarters has a dedicated space just for hosting esports workshops and training sessions.

Understandably, some areas are off-limits to the public but you’ll be glad to know that the RazerStore and RazerCafe are not.

Opening officially on 28 Oct, the public can check out the stores to either get their latest gaming gear or quench their thirst with a robot-made cuppa.

They’re also looking to fill positions for their new growth categories such as console gaming, gaming chairs, and Razer Gold, reports The Straits Times.
