Chinatown Point - Map, Mall Directory & More
Chinatown Point is a shopping mall located in Chinatown, Singapore. It is situated along New Bridge Road and bordered by Upper Cross Street and Upper Hokien Street. The building is opposite another shopping complex (People's Park Centre) and next to the Hong Lim Market & Food Centre which is well-known for its traditional local Chinese street food.
In late 2011, this retail cum office development closed down and started undergoing major refurbishments. The new complex is expected to be ready around end-2012. Before its closure, Chinatown Point had almost two hundred retail and services outlets with a diverse store mix. Offerings then included an interesting range of traditional Chinese antique/art shops, jewellery and watch retailers, restaurants, healthcare and spa providers, as well as beauty/hair salons. Here's hoping that these stores will make a comeback when Chinatown Point reopens in late 2012.
