HistoryEdit

Compass Point was built as an integrated development together with the adjacent Sengkang MRT/LRT station and Compass Heights condominium.[2][3] Constructed at a cost of S$230 million,[4][5] the shopping mall started operations in August 2002.[1] The shopping centre was the first major mall to open on the North East Line.[4]

On June 19, 2015, it was announced that Metro, one of the mall's anchor tenants, will be closing its 12 years old outlet in the mall because New Look had been already scouting for Compass One for a long time.,[6] and at the same time, Compass Point will be closed on October 25, 2015 as 12 year mall will be undergoing renovation and upgrading works.[7]

Management changes and upgrading worksEdit

On December 16, 2015, it was announced that real estate fund manager M&G Real Estate will become the sole owner of Compass Point mall in Sengkang, after entering into a deed to acquire the remaining 18.99 per cent of shares owned by Frasers Centrepoint. The buyout was finalized in February 2016 and M&G Real Estate announced that the mall will reopen in 1 September 2016 after upon completion of the upgrading works under a new name and new management.[8] It was being renamed to Compass One on 23 December 2015, after the name "Compass Point" cannot be used.

Before the renovation works, the mall was Singapore's first thematic suburban shopping mall based on the theme of learning. Educational panels and informative posters are mounted on railings and walls, which feature interesting trivia based on particular themes updated periodically. After getting feedback from the public and commissioning a survey of residents in the area, conducted by international property adviser DTZ Debenham Tie Leung Limited, the mall's developer, Centrepoint Properties, proposed the learning theme for the shopping mall to cater to the predominantly young families of Sengkang New Town.[4][9][10]

The shopping mall had an approximate retail area of Template:Convert. Retail space was spread out over four storeys and a basement. Each storey of the shopping centre was named after the five major continents, with motifs showing different aspects of that continent, such as flora and sea-transport vessels:[4] Oceania (basement storey); Asia (ground floor); Europe (2nd storey); The Americas (3rd); and Africa (4th).
