CityLink to get S$10m makeover

CityLink Mall, the subterranean mall linking One Raffles Link with City Hall and Esplanade MRT stations, will soon undergo a S$10 million makeover some 10 years after it opened.

The focal point of the refurbishment will be the mall entrances at City Hall and Esplanade MRT stations, as well as One Raffles Link.

The refurbished mall will see new ceilings and patterned marble flooring.

Way finders and mall directories will be redesigned, and new feature walls will be installed, to showcase the latest offerings and promotions by mall tenants.

CityLink Mall is the retail component of One Raffles Link, which is managed by Hongkong Land.

In a press release issued on Thursday, Hongkong Land said the refurbishment will take place for a year, starting from the third quarter of this year.

It assured business will continue as usual, with refurbishment works only carried out during the Mall’s closing hours between midnight and 6am.

This will ensure the smooth flow of shoppers and commuters along the mall linking One Raffles Link with City Hall and Esplanade MRT stations, which has a footfall of 1.4 million people every month.
