Century Square will reopen on June 6 following a S$60 million makeover.

The refurbished mall, located in Tampines, will have a new façade and interior design, and more than 50 percent new tenants.

The mall was closed in September 2017 for refurbishment works.

Return of local label

Homegrown fashion label M)phosis will return with the mall, its operator AsiaMalls said in a statement on Tuesday, May 15.

M)phosis had shut its stores in Singapore in 2015. It was known for its signature contemporary and clean-cut designs.

It was once Singapore’s more successful home-grown fashion label. This return marks an end of its two-year hiatus.

More food options

There will also be more food options, with some 45 dining choices.

This is up from 30 previously.

Some of the food choices available include chicken rice chain Boon Tong Kee's first outlet in a shopping mall, a new concept by Eighteen Chefs called The Meathouse, hotpot restaurant Hai Di Lao and Two Hana, a new fusion cafe concept by Seoul Garden.

Other tenants

Other new tenants to the mall include cinema operator Filmgarde, speciality kitchenware store ToTT, 24-hour gym Gymmboxx, National Library Board’s digital library service eReads and Mahota Market, a new “hybrid dining-grocery model”.

An entire level has also been dedicated to families and kids, anchored by childcare centre The Orange Academy and enrichment centre The Learning Lab, said AsiaMalls.

Century Square will feature enhanced amenities, such as an e-doodling wall to entertain younger shoppers, a new roof deck, bike stations with shower facilities, upgraded and larger nursing rooms and self-help mobile charging stations.

Century Square is the third mall within the AsiaMalls' portfolio to undergo refurbishment.

Tiong Bahru Plaza and White Sands completed their renovations in 2015 and 2016, respectively, and saw double-digit jumps in foot traffic, AsiaMalls said.
