CDL's $50 million revamp of City Square Mall to add 26,000 sq ft of GFA

The mall will remain open during its upgrading works, scheduled for completion in 1H2025.

City Square Mall, located at the junction of Serangoon and Kitchener Road, will add about 26,000 sq ft of gross floor area (GFA) after it completes a $50 million asset enhancement initiative (AEI) in 2025.

The 11-storey mall is owned and managed by Singapore-listed City Developments (CDL), which is positioning the property as a family—and community-centric space. Some of the mall's areas formerly dedicated to mechanical and electrical equipment will be freed for more sports and communal facilities. The additional GFA freed up will enhance the mall's operational efficiency, overall layout, and functionality.


New F&B offerings will be added to level 4 of the mall, creating a new 24,000 sq ft "Gastro Square." The Food Republic food court, currently on the fourth level, will be relocated to a new 9,000 sq ft space in basement 3. The slabs at the atriums from Level 2 to Level 4 will be extended to create new retail spaces.

New food outlets in basements 1 and 2 include Jie Traditional Bakery, Munchi Pancakes, Towkay Fried Chicken and lemon tea vendor Taning. They will join existing tenants, Crave, EAT., Nam Kee Pau and Ya Kun Kaya Toast.

In addition to diversifying F&B options, the 15-year-old mall will be rejuvenated with modernised interiors, additional community amenities, and sustainable features. For instance, the fourth floor will have activities catering to youths and families and a dedicated performance area with space for social gatherings and events.

As part of the mall's sustainability efforts, upcycled materials will be integrated into lift lobbies and wall finishes from basement 4 to level 6, including murals made from sustainable materials.

The mall will remain open during its upgrading works, scheduled for completion in 1H2025.
