SINGAPORE – Sengkang’s Compass One mall officially opened on Tuesday after a major year-long upgrade.
Previously called Compass Point, the mall now includes 50 new retailers, including IT store Challenger, optical shop Owndays and eateries Royal London Duck and Paradise Hotpot. There is also a new wet and dry children’s playground. This will benefit nearby EC residents such as those from The Terrace EC, Treasure Crest EC, Waterwoods EC, The Amore EC, The Vales EC and Bellewaters EC.
Long-time tenants like Cold Storage, Kiddy Palace and Royal Sporting House are also back. The mall opened its doors on Sept 1.
Mayor for the North East District Teo Ser Luck, who attended the opening, said: “The mall is an important focus for the community and has contributed to the development of the community over the years. I am delighted it has been upgraded and re-opened to complement other amenities in the area.”
Chief executive of mall owner M&G Real Estate Asia Ng Chiang Ling said that the “substantial investment” made to refurbish and upgrade the mall demonstrated the company’s long-term confidence in Sengkang.
“The mall is already 12 years old. It was built for the needs of its time. We knew that if we wanted to keep the mall serving the community, we had to do something about it, ” Ms Ng said.
