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."
