Northshore Plaza I Will Be Connected Directly To Samudera LRT Station
Those who’ve been to Punggol’s Northshore District will attest that it’s pretty far-flung.
And as a relatively new estate, there isn’t much now in terms of dining options or retail therapy.
That’s about to change when Northshore Plaza I opens on 29 Oct.
Among the tenants that residents can look forward to are favourites like McDonald’s, Haidilao and Decathlon.
Northshore Plaza will open in 2 stages
The new mall announced the good news via a Facebook post on Saturday (9 Oct), sharing that it will open in 2 stages.
The first to open will be Northshore Plaza I on 29 Oct. It’ll be located between Punggol Way and Northshore Drive and linked to Northshore Residences.
Northshore Plaza II will have a more scenic location, as it’ll be overlooking the Straits of Johor.
That’s why the Housing & Development Board has billed it as “the first seafront neighbourhood centre to be built in an HDB estate” and “a unique waterfront shopping experience”.
However, this section will open only in the 1st quarter of 2022.
Northshore Plaza I connected to LRT station
Not only will Northshore Plaza I be the first to open, but it’s also the more accessible of the 2 halves.
That’s because it’ll be directly linked to Samudera LRT station, 4 stops away from Punggol MRT interchange.
So Punggol residents who regularly visit Waterway Point will have a new shopping option just an LRT ride away.
Of course, Northshore Plaza I & II will also be linked across the road via a bridge for easy access.
Familiar favourites to look forward to
The mall also helpfully confirmed the tenant list, so visitors know what to look forward to when Northshore Plaza I opens in just 3 weeks.
McDonald’s will be there, of course, as no neighbourhood can do without the golden arches.
Another familiar favourite will be Haidilao Hotpot, which will be popular with families and friend groups once we can dine out in bigger groups again.
A relatively recent addition to our retail scene that’s now booming is Decathlon. Its impending arrival at Northshore Plaza I will be good news for those who like to exercise near the seafront.
According to Decathlon, its experience store there is the company’s 6th. It’ll have 4,200 sq m of space and 2 levels.
Besides these, there’ll also be a Giant Supermarket for daily essentials, Koi Thé for your bubble tea fix and the usual learning centres.
Over at Northshore Plaza II, what catches the eye are the latest branches of fast-food chain A&W and $2 shopping haven Daiso.
Other gastronomic highlights to expect are 4Fingers Crispy Chicken, Slappy Cakes and Creamier.
The mall will have an airy arrival atrium filled with light for those more interested in architectural features.
There’ll also be a community plaza for events and shows.
The building will be surrounded by verdant greenery, as it’s located within a comprehensive network of community spaces and parks.
This naturally ventilated “community spine” will connect the mall to the residential blocks and extend alongside the common green to Punggol Promenade.
This will provide convenient and sheltered access to the waterfront, HDB said.
A reason to visit the north-east
The addition of another new mall in Singapore might be somewhat of a regular thing, but it still draws much attention nonetheless.
At least now curious Singaporeans will have a reason to visit the extreme north-eastern end of the island.
For residents living in Northshore District, they’ve so far had no choice but to head over to Waterway Point for their shopping needs.
So we’re sure they won’t be able to stop themselves from rushing to Northshore Plaza I when it opens later this month.
