The recently unveiled integrated complex in Bedok, Heartbeat@Bedok, was designed to incorporate amenities that cater to all age groups, providing family-friendly facilities. Parents with kids, grandchildren and grandparents can all come together as families to enjoy themselves in a single location.
Built upon a formerly forested site, it is apt that the main theme of Heartbeat@Bedok is greenery. Every floor plate is bordered with greenery, seemingly enveloping the building within a park’s forest. The multiple layering of plants, trees, shrubs and ground cover simulate a terraced landscape on the south façade, acting as privacy and acoustic screens from the neighbouring residential units. Heartbeat@Bedok’s unique design has also caught the eye internationally and it has won numerous architectural awards both home and abroad.
Bringing multiple services together under one roof, Heartbeat@Bedok is one of Singapore’s largest integrated complexes - it occupies 2.1 hectares or the size of about three football fields. The building houses several facilities such as a community centre, sport centre, polyclinic, senior care centre, a public library, as well as food & beverage outlets and shops.

Famed Japanese discount store Don Quijote has opened its first store in Singapore at Orchard Central.
The double-storey 1,397 sq m discount store is operating with its name as Don Don Donki instead of Don Quijote because a Don Quijote restaurant already exists here in Dempsey Road. The 24-hour store has the same range and eclectic mix of products as its outlets in Japan.
Founded in 1978 by Takao Yasuda, the brand now has over 368 stores in Japan, Hawaii and the United States.
The second Singapore outlet is set to open middle of June 2018 and will be located in Tanjong Pagar.
One of the levels of the flagship store is dedicated to food. You can also find the Don Don Donki bar, the first outside of Japan.
The Japanese themed bar with an array of drinks like sake, beer and whiskey operates from 4pm to 2am from Sunday to Thursday and from 4pm to 3am on Friday and Saturday.
The cheapest product at Singapore's Don Don Donki is the Calbee Jagatico Salad which is going for S$0.50, while the most expensive is the 35-year-old Hibiki Suntory Whisky at S$80,000.
Lumine is now open at Clarke Quay's The Central with an exciting new mall-in-mall shopping experience! Have your pick of Japan — and eat it too.
Lumine introduces a guiding philosophy, I Am Who I AM, which is derived from its aim to inspire the sense of taste and value via variability in fashion from Japan for Singaporean women.
I Am Who I AM promotes self-confidence and encourages women to be as beautiful inside as they are on the outside, through one’s personal journey of growth.
As part of the launch in Singapore, the brand presents popular individuals from Singapore and Japan who strive on being different and are not afraid to express themselves.
With fine-quality products edited and curated by Lumine, visitors to the mall can expect a mall-in-mall experience. Both established and younger brands will be available, as well as an in-house café that is the first of its kind.
The 5,000 sqft store is also home to Swee Lee Social Club; an in-store casual cafe for patrons to rest and hang ten, a hangout space for music lovers to exchange over cuppas and sweets.
The bigger store space at Star Vista is also the expansion of Swee Lee Music Academy and it is now fitted with five teaching rooms for you to learn music and jam away.
Swee Lee Star Vista Lifestyle Store also offers repair services and a special VIP treatment (by appointment only), for those who’d like to have consultations with the pros on the range of limited edition guitars.

In addition to greater convenience for commuters with seamless transfers between the new air-conditioned bus interchange and the Bukit Panjang MRT and LRT stations, commuters using the new Bukit Panjang ITH can expect new features to enhance their overall journey experience. The new ITH will also feature several technological innovations to improve workplace safety, for example, a traffic management system to detect and increase bus captains’ visual awareness of bus movements within the bus parking area.
The Bukit Panjang ITH is the first integrated transport hub operated by SMRT Buses, who has invested significantly to ensure a positive travelling experience for commuters using the new ITH.
The Bukit Panjang ITH will take on a different look and feel, with its design and function planned around three key themes: Commuter Centricity, Workforce Oriented and Community Bonding. Please refer to the Annex for a summary of new features at Bukit Panjang ITH.
One of the few features unique to this hub is that commuters can soon borrow items such as portable USB charger, shopping trolley and an umbrella when they travel through the Bukit Panjang ITH. To borrow the items, commuters need to go to the WeCare Shop located near the bus interchange at the ground level of the connected Hillion Mall, also to provide an identity card (to be scanned) and a contact number. They may keep the items for up to three days, after which SMRT employees will contact them to return the things.
The Bukit Panjang ITH is fully equipped with barrier-free facilities which makes it convenient to take public transport, especially for commuters with mobility issues as well as commuters travelling with young children and prams. For example, graduated kerb edges are installed at all boarding berths to facilitate boarding and alighting of buses by passengers in wheelchairs. Bus berths and lifts have also been braille-equipped for the visually impaired.
Priority queues and accompanying seats will also be demarcated for seniors, less mobile and expectant mothers to rest and wait at, so that they can be accorded priority boarding for their buses.
All new and upcoming ITHs and Bus Interchanges developed from 2014 are also designed with standalone nursing rooms which comes with diaper changing amenities and a wash basin.
The Container is a tapas and cocktail bar that draws inspiration from the elements of earth, air, water and fire. It is also one of two specially curated concepts – Aburiya Japanese Wagyu Yakiniku and The Container Wagyu Tapas & Bar which are located side by side, right next to the iconic Singapore River on Boat Quay, offering a comprehensive Japanese Wagyu experience.
In Hokkaido, wagyu farmers all have a second ‘home’.
At the end of the day, they will gather in old, used containers which are converted into informal ‘bars’.
It is at the bars where they share anecdotes about their day’s work and their family (or how some miss theirs who live in other prefectures). They enjoy small plates of wagyu dishes, served up along with sake and beer. Sometimes, the farmers take turns to prepare their hometown wagyu specialities.
Laughing, bonding, over their stories. A place of camaraderie and friendship. This is a celebration of life. The Container is inspired by this experience.
At Aburiya, you will embark on a real Japanese Wagyu beef journey in more ways than one. Presenting to their customers a unique experience with two specially curated concepts – Aburiya Japanese Wagyu Yakiniku and The Container Wagyu Tapas & Bar are both located on Boat Quay, right next to the iconic Singapore River.
As believers of the “nose to tail” philosophy, the people behind Aburiya and The Container respectfully ensure that they use all the cuts of the Japanese Wagyu beef which they import to Singapore from their partner farmers, to minimise wastage and also to showcase the various unique cuts of the beef.
At Aburiya, they pride ourselves in delivering the perfect yakiniku experience.
They also import their own ‘bincho’, also known as ‘white charcoal’, from their own source. A Japanese tradition for yakiniku, grilling Japanese wagyu over ‘white charcoal’ imparts a special flavour to the slices of wagyu beef.
The oldest of three malls in Tampines central, this facelift project will be the mall's first major renovation since it opened in 1995.
The 216,055 sqft mall will have 218 shop units. One of its anchor tenants is lifestyle grocer Mahota Market. It will take up about a third of Basement 1 and will feature a booth for freshly bought items to be cooked into meals such as steaks and pastas.

The largest mall in Northern Singapore will open to shoppers in the fourth quarter this year. Developed by Frasers Centrepoint Singapore, the mall is part of Northpoint City, the largest integrated development in the North, housing over 400 retail and dining outlets across two retail wings.
When completed, the 1.33 million square feet Northpoint City will also include the 920-unit North Park Residences, community spaces, an air-conditioned bus interchange and an underground retail link with direct access to Yishun MRT Station.
Northpoint City is expected to serve as a lifestyle, recreation and integrated transportation hub for over half a million residents from Singapore’s northern region.
With a community club, a rooftop community garden, a public library, a town plaza which is the size of 10 basketball courts and a line-up of lifestyle and retail offerings curated to serve the community, Northpoint City will be the key venue of community interaction and activities.
The Nee Soon Central Community Club will move into the South Wing of the mall by 2018 and will be the first Community Club in Singapore to be housed in a shopping mall. The Yishun Public Library will also be re-opening in the mall by the first quarter of next year.
Pursuant to the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s Community and Sports Facilities Scheme (CSFS)1, Frasers Centrepoint Singapore created additional space for community-focused services. Such community-centric tenants include The RICE Company, a performing arts non-profit organisation, as well as a childcare centre The Orange Academy.
Shoppers can expect a new, exciting and vibrant shopping experience at both the North and South wings, which will form the mall at Northpoint City. With the expected completion of its Asset Enhancement Initiative (AEI) in September 2017, Northpoint Shopping Centre will be integrated into Northpoint City and renamed as its North Wing.
In addition to a diverse range of retail offerings, the North Wing will feature over 50 food and beverage concepts, including family favourites Wee Nam Kee Chicken Rice and Tenderfresh. The South Wing will have a second food court in addition to a speciality food precinct named "The Makan Town”, an education cluster, as well as other thematic shopping zones.
Drawn by the potential and scale of Northpoint City, the mall is on track to having close to 90% of its retail space leased when it opens in the fourth quarter of this year. Harvey Norman will move into a brand-new 34,000 square feet store to offer even more selections for its shoppers, while retail stalwart FairPrice will open a supermarket spanning 33,000 square feet. This will be the second supermarket in Northpoint City in addition to the existing Cold Storage supermarket, giving even more options for shoppers.
Linking the two wings of Northpoint City’s retail space will be The Courtyard at Basement 1. It will be a community space designed to allow natural light into the mall, while offering an unobstructed view of shopfronts in that area.
