Tampines 1 set to change face of Singapore suburb
Story 10

RESIDENTS in the eastern suburb of Tampines in Singapore will welcome the additional retail space when AsiaMalls Management’s Tampines 1 opens early next year.

Strategically located between the Tampines MRT Station and bus interchange, the S$450-million (US$326.16-million) mall, with a net lettable area of 260,000sqf, is expected to change the
architectural landscape while meeting the shortage of retail space in the suburban area.

According to the mall’s management, the six-storey Tampines 1 is targeted at the “young, savvy and lover of all new things” with its new architectural elements such as loft-style shops
and restaurants, European-inspired basement piazza, open-concept food hall and even a swimming pool — the first in a suburban mall.

Among the mall’s tenants will be Cold Storage supermarket, which will take up 14,000sqf of the basement, Times The Bookshop and IT superstore Challenger, a former tenant at what
used to be DBS Tampines Centre, which has made way for the upcoming Tampines 1.

Other facilities at the new mall will include a gym and spa, fast-food joints, as well as new lifestyle retail outlets and concepts. All these will be brought together by multi-faceted interactive media to engage shoppers.
