Chinatown Point is a shopping mall located in Chinatown, Singapore. It is a mixed development which includes a 25-storey office tower located right above the mall. Constructed in the 1990s, the mall opened in 1993. From 2011 to 2012, the mall underwent renovations after a change in the management. It held its soft core launch in year-end 2012 and was fully operational in the 2nd quarter of 2013.HistoryWhen it first opened, the mall was at the forefront of shopping in Singapore, there were countless curio shops, pawn shops and jewelry stores. Like many old malls in Singapore, the shopping centre declined in popularity when newer malls opened within the region.In July 2010, the mall was bought over from City Developments Limited by Perennial (Singapore) Retail Management for S$250 million. The mall then underwent a S$90 million makeover from 2011 to 2012 which increased its total retail floor area by 18 percent.ArchitectureOriginally, the mall featured 2 spiralling podiums. One of the podiums was converted into a flat space and it now features a spiralling central atrium, where shoppers can walk from the highest level of the shopping mall to the first level. Other renovation works included the installation of a dome-shaped ceiling in the central atrium, carpeting on some levels and a giant LED screen. The basement carpark has also been relocated to higher levels for more retail space. A pedestrian link to the Chinatown MRT Station was also built.TenantsAfter the renovation works, a new tenant mix was also brought in including new anchor tenants, NTUC Fairprice, Daiso and Uniqlo. Other new tenants include an Eat At Taipei outlet, Din Tai Fung restaurant and also more apparel and other retail outlets.

  • Good selection of shops and restaurants and a big supermarket too. This is a clean shopping mall in the heart of Chinatown with MRT access. 
  • Old age was crowded on the weekend for the first time I went. Japan restaurant, was buzzing. But don't go all the way because Singapore is so still and shops still have?

  • The cleanest place in chinatown. Must try songfa bak kut teh here. Also on the top floor, you can get tickets to sentosa or any amusement park/zoos quite cheaply
  • ChinaTown Point is a shopping mall where you can most probably find something new of interest per visit. For example, if you're to browse you can check you the Daiso at the B2 level (B2-02). Afterwards, take a break at the small eateries / snacks shops at the B1/B2 area. There's usually a line for Song Fa Bak Kut Teh (Pork bone tea) at #01-04.
  • A modest size shopping mall easily accessible via Chinatown MRT station. The central of it requires one to walk in a spiral to head to higher floors, but there are escalators as well so look out for those. Behind it houses a multi-story hawker centre known for quite some local fare such as char kuay teow, prawn mee and more.
  • This is a decent kind of shopping mall, catering mainly for Chinese' taste. You won;t find luxury brands here, but some quirky local things. It has a good supermarket for your grocery. The famous Song Fat pork rib soup is here too. Perfect place to wind down when it's raining heavily outside, which often does in Singapore.
  • As a mall it's not very exciting. Small number of shops. A branch of the oldest yakitori restaurant in Singapore, Nanbantei is in here as well as a branch of the always consistent Din Tai Fung.
