The Clementi Mall is on track to obtain its first temporary occupancy permit early next month and its second in mid-March, according to Singapore Press Holdings (SPH).
Shoppers can look forward to having a new department store next year, with BHG opening its fifth Singapore outlet at The Clementi Mall. The store will open ‘within the next couple of months’, said SPH.
SPH’s unit Times Properties has a 60 per cent stake in CM Domain, the joint venture that owns the mall, with NTUC Income and NTUC FairPrice holding the rest.
So far, 85 per cent of the mall’s retail space has been taken up.
‘We are getting many positive responses and interest from retailers for shop space,’ said CM Domain general manager Linda Kwan. ‘We expect full tenancy commitment when the mall officially opens in April 2011.’
First to open at the mall will be the 20,000 sq ft FairPrice Finest supermarket and a number of eateries in the basement and on the first level, which will start doing business from the middle of next month.
The eateries will include Old Chang Kee, Bee Cheng Hiang, Ho Kee Pau, Each-A-Cup, BreadTalk/ToastBox, Four Seasons Durians, Yami Yogurt and Bengawan Solo.
A duplex McDonald’s outlet that takes up 5,000 sq ft is scheduled to open by Chinese New Year, SPH said. It will join fast-food joints including Ajisen Ramen, Burger King, KFC and Long John Silver’s.
SPH also announced the names of other tenants at the mall yesterday, including electronics retailers Challenger and Best Denki on the fourth level.
These, together with the 10,000 sq ft Foodfare food court on the fourth level, and the 20,000 sq ft Clementi Public Library on the fifth level, will open in stages during the first half of next year.
The Clementi Mall offers about 190,000 sq ft of retail space in total, including a basement shopping level and a basement carpark with about 160 spaces.
When completed, it will have a direct link to Clementi MRT station on the third level and Clementi bus interchange on the first level.
