The mall in the new SingPost Centre – near Paya Lebar MRT station – spans five floors and has a net lettable area of about 175,000 sq ft. The SingPost Centre will house the new General Post Office and Philatelic Store and feature tenants, including supermart NTUC FairPrice, Golden Village cinemas and a Kopitiam foodcourt. SingPost said the 300 sq m General Post Office will feature traditional counter service and technology-enabled innovations such as POPStations and eSAM machines. There will also be a heritage corner where customers can learn about the postal service firm’s 150 years of history.
CapitaLand Mall Asia is the mall manager, signing its first third-party mall management contract in Singapore, boosting CapitaLand’s mall network here to 20. The long-term contract with Singapore Post will see CapitaLand managing the upcoming mall at the new SingPost Centre in Paya Lebar – slated to open in the second half of this year.
The SingPost Centre mall will augment its presence in eastern Singapore, where it currently owns and manages two malls – Tampines Mall and Bedok Mall. It is also involved in a joint venture to develop the Jewel Changi Airport which is due to be ready in early 2019.
With CapitaLand as the retail mall manager, SingPost will be able to focus its attention on our core operations of postal services and e-commerce logistics. Under the property management agreement, CapitaLand will oversee the period leading up to the opening of the mall, its marketing and promotion as well as leasing and facilities management.
