Electra House was once the focal point of the city as it was the first multi storey shopping complex in Kuching. This is the place where the urban and rural people meet back then. Most of the city bus will converge here and turn this place to some sort of transportation hub.
The shopping complex adopts an open air concept and is not air conditioned. Sugarbun fast food outlet is at the ground floor and business seems to survive in the current competitive business environment.
Just opposite the complex is an open air food court (with the iconic observation tower which once house the fire station for the town). This once popular and important building still stands proud until this very day.
