City Square Mall, a family-friendly mall and Singapore’s first eco-mall, is set to unveil a new look after it completes a S$50 million Asset Enhancement Initiative (AEI) in 2025. Located at the junction of Serangoon and Kitchener Roads, the mall is managed and owned by City Developments Limited (CDL). The mall’s AEI commenced during the third quarter of 2023 and is close to completing Phase 1 of the AEI. As part of its initiative to enhance the 11-storey mall, the AEI will add about 26,000 square feet (sq ft) of Gross Floor Area (GFA) – unlocked by efforts such as leveraging the Community/Sports Facilities Scheme and decanting mechanical and electrical facilities.

The additional GFA will be used to enhance operational efficiency, overall layout and functionality of the mall through the creation of a food haven at Level 4 and food court at Basement 3, and new retail spaces through the extension of slabs at the atriums from Level 2 to Level 4. Apart from diversifying F&B options, the rejuvenation effort also aims to provide an elevated experience through modernised interiors, added community-based initiatives and sustainable features.

Highlights of City Square Mall’s AEI:

Refreshed Dining Offerings

Apart from enhancing the Basement 1 drop-off point to create a more welcoming entryway into the mall, more retail spaces will be created to cater to the evolving palates of the shoppers.

As part of its Phase 1 AEI plans, the food stalls at Basements 1 and 2 will feature returning tenants such as Crave, EAT., Nam Kee Pau and Ya Kun Kaya Toast alongside new food kiosks including Jie Traditional Bakery, Munchi Pancakes, Taning (挞柠) and Towkay Fried Chicken.

Set to open in May 2024, the Food Republic will be moving from Level 4 to Basement 3, spanning 9,000 sq ft and featuring a nostalgic theme. The revamped Food Republic will comprise local delights such as Hjh Maimunah Mini, Li Xin Teochew Fish Ball Noodles, Thye Hong Fried Prawn Noodles and more.

Additionally, Level 4 will be transformed into a food haven, aptly named Gastro Square. This vibrant space, spanning 24,000 sq ft, will feature a diverse array of culinary delights, ranging from international cuisines to local favourites. Creating a gastronomic experience with its bustling atmosphere and eclectic dining choices, Gastro Square will cater to every palate in the family.

A Renewed Focus on Supporting the Community as a Family-Friendly Hub

In line with fostering a sense of community and inclusivity, City Square Mall’s AEI will be introducing community spaces through the Community/Sports Facilities Scheme on Level 4, which will offer various programmes for youths and families. More details about these initiatives will be revealed when ready. On the same floor, a dedicated space will be created for a Performance Area which provides a conducive and comfortable environment for social gatherings, events and cultural activities, and fosters a dynamic community hub where entertainment thrives and families gather.

Integrating Upcycled Materials to Promote Circularity

Reflecting CDL’s commitment to sustainability, City Square Mall will showcase sustainable initiatives and circularity by integrating upcycled materials into its new interior decorations. Lift lobbies and wall finishes from Basement 4 to Level 6 will be refreshed with a series of wall murals that are created from sustainable decorative eco-materials.

During the AEI, which is scheduled to complete in the first half of 2025, shoppers can still shop and dine as they always do as their favourite stores and restaurants continue to serve customers. Signages and temporary directories will be strategically placed around the mall to redirect shoppers from the areas undergoing renovation.

As the mall progresses into the second phase of its AEI, it looks forward to introducing groundbreaking initiatives, fostering a sense of community, and creating lasting memories for its valued patrons.
