Bedok Mall to open next year

by Cheryl Tay Bedok Mall (pictured), the first major shopping mall in Singapore's largest estate, will open by end-2013.

The mall is part of the first fully-integrated retail-residential-transport development — which also includes Bedok Residences — that will help transform Bedok into an upcoming hub in the East Coast.

The three-storey Bedok Mall will offer a total net lettable area (NLA) of 220,000 sq ft and 250 shops. It will also enjoy accessibility to the Bedok transport hub, comprising the new Bedok bus interchange and Bedok MRT station and will provide 250 parking spaces for drivers.

Around 30 percent of the mall was already committed over a year before its scheduled opening.

Meanwhile, the 583-unit Bedok Residences, launched in November last year, is now about 90 percent sold.

"Located at the heart of Bedok, Bedok Mall and Bedok Residences will play a key role in revitalising the town centre," said Philip Yim, General Manager at Bedok Mall and Bedok Residences.

Yim added that the fully integrated development will "bring an unprecedented level of convenience and new retail choices and amenities to the estate, with Bedok's first integrated condominium, first major mall with 250 shops and an air-conditioned bus interchange."

    Some things in life are hard to explain, like why a dentist insists on asking you questions when you clearly can't respond. Or why we call pants "a pair" even though it's just one. Or how about this puzzler: Why a person would drive their Mustang along a Texas highway despite it missing a wheel? Life is full of little mysteries, I guess.

    All-new 2015 Subaru Outback reestablishes higher ground

    Much of Subaru’s modern day success in America can be attributed to one car: the Outback. Born in 1994 as a response to the growing popularity of SUVs, the Outback established a winning formula of combining a high-riding suspension, butch body cladding and big round fog lights to its comfortable, no-nonsense Legacy wagon. It is the kind of unique product that only a quirky company like Subaru could build, and was one that kept Subaru from slipping into ubiquity even as traditional SUVs and crossovers have taken over the world.
