Junction 8 (Chinese: 碧山第八站; pinyin: dì bā zhàn, stylised as Juncti8n) is a popular heartland shopping mall located in the centre of Bishan. It is located outside Bishan MRT station and Bishan Bus Interchange. Escalators were also installed to offer shoppers more convenience. The name of this shopping centre was derived from the old station numbering of the North South Line sector of nearby Bishan (N8).
In 2004, the mall had an expansion block expanded to accommodate more retail spaces and a linkbridge was built, connecting to the car park opposite the mall. It also relocated the roof garden from the 2nd to the 3rd storey of the mall, equipped with a children's playground. In 2012, it underwent a major renovation, repainting its exterior and refreshing the interior of the mall. The children's playground was also renovated. The mall's first basement was connected to the southbound platform of Bishan MRT station.
