S$48m spent on upgrading 6 shopping complexes: HDB

SINGAPORE: The Housing and Development Board (HDB) has spent around S$48 million upgrading six of its 21 shopping complexes across Singapore, it announced on Monday (Jun 26).

The latest mall to be revamped was Loyang Point in Pasir Ris, which serves more than 26,000 residents living in the area. Upgrading work was done over a two-year period and was completed in December 2016.

What used to be a single-storey complex with an adjoining wing has now been transformed into a two-storey block, increasing capacity by 28 per cent, said HDB. Loyang Point now houses 77 shops, up from 60.

HDB said it started building such shopping complexes in the early 1990s, and they will be upgraded progressively, as part of efforts to better serve residents. Gek Poh Shopping Centre in Jurong West was the first to undergo renovations in 2007.

At Loyang Point, HDB said food options have “quadrupled”, while parking and restroom facilities have also been “enhanced” with new family-friendly features such as diaper changing stations and a nursing room. There are also two covered linkways connecting the complex to bus stops and six ramps at the malls’ entrances.
