Bedok Mall (Chinese: 勿落广场) is a large suburban shopping mall in Bedok, Singapore and part of a mixed development compromising of retail and residential development that is integrated with a bus interchange. Located at the heart of Bedok, the integrated retail and residential development comprises a 3-storey lifestyle and family shopping mall and eight 15-storey residential towers called Bedok Residences. It was the first major shopping mall to open in Bedok and was built on the site of the former Bedok bus interchange.

The mall is linked to Bedok MRT station through a link at Basement 2, and the bus interchange which is right above the mall at Level 2. It is also located next to the popular Bedok hawker centre.

History[edit]

Originally the former Bedok Bus Interchange, the Land Transport Authority announced in 2009 that it will be redeveloped into an integrated transport hub comprising an air-conditioned bus interchange, a retail mall and a residential complex. To facilitate construction works for the integrated hub, Bedok Bus Interchange was moved to a temporary site next to its original location in late 2011.

At the same time, Capitaland, the developer of the site launched Bedok Mall and Bedok Residences. Originally slated to be completed in 2014, Capitaland announced that Bedok Mall would open in late 2013, six months earlier than expected in 2012. It also announced that the mall had secured anchor tenants Fairprice Finest, Best Denki and Uniqlo and was 30% occupied that time.

Bedok Mall was opened in December 2013, with 80% of the shops opened. The following year, the air-conditioned Bedok Bus Interchange opened and the Bedok Residences was completed in June 2015.
