Waterway Point (Chinese:水滨坊)is a suburban shopping mall located in the town centre of Punggol New Town, Singapore, next to the Punggol MRT/LRT station. The mall was built as part of Punggol's first integrated waterfront residential and retail development, Watertown.[2][3] It is the first mall in Singapore to be integrated with a town square and a visitors’ centre which provides an avenue for residents and the public to learn more about the heritage of Punggol through exhibitions and civic and community events.[4] The mall had a soft launch in January 2016,[5] and was officially opened in April 2016.[6]

History[edit]

Construction of Waterway Point, in 2014.

Waterway Point was announced in October 2011 by mall developer Frasers Centerpoint Limited. Built on an empty plot of land located beside the waterway and MRT station, the mall was jointly developed by Far East Organization and Sekisui House and is part of the S$1.6 billion new Watertown development.[3] It has a total of 542,493 square feet (50,399.2 m2) of gross floor area and has 370,824 square feet (34,450.7 m2) of retail space spread over 4 levels inclusive of 2 basements, with a tenant mix of approximately 30% F&B, 43% retail, 15% entertainment, 12% others (education institutions, banks, civic & community amenities such as a library).[4]

Located beside the Punggol Waterway, Waterway Point provides various dining, fashion, entertainment and amenities for the suburban residents in the vicinity. The layout of the mall is different from many traditional mall layouts, it is separated into a East Wing and West Wing which are connected by a 24-hour walkway, The Boardwalk, linking Punggol Waterway Park with the mall and Punggol MRT/LRT Station.[7] It also features indoor and outdoor themed spaces located throughout the mall for exhibitions, civic events and recreational activities.[8]

The mall has various educational learning centres, bookstores and play space for children, including a dry and wet playground on the second floor.[9] It also has a 24-hour supermarket, telecommunication shops, as well as salons and banks.[10][11] It also houses the largest suburban basement cinema in Singapore.[12]

Accessibility[edit]

Waterway Point is located beside Punggol MRT/LRT station and Punggol Bus Interchange. It serves as the main shopping mall for residents of Punggol New Town.
