After undergoing a S$150 million revamp, SingPost Centre opened its new retail wing in October 2017. Conveniently located next to Paya Lebar MRT station, SingPost Centre brings together an exciting array of lifestyle and F&B offerings that are set to further enliven Paya Lebar Central.
Featuring an industrial chic design aesthetic, the five-storey mall from Basement 1 to Level 4 covers a gross floor area of 269,000 sq ft, double the size of the original. It houses about 130 stores over a net lettable area of 178,000 sq ft that include leading brands in fashion, dining, entertainment and children’s enrichment. SingPost Centre mall is owned by Singapore Post and managed by CapitaLand.
Showing the future for the post office, the GPO is SingPost’s first Smart Post Office, in which traditional brick-and-mortar outlets are augmented by a digital network that offers anytime and anywhere access to postal and other essential services.
A new SAM omnichannel platform, comprising kiosks, web and mobile apps, underpins the GPO and the Smart Post Office, and essentially places a post office virtually in the pockets of every customer to offer flexibility and efficiency that are expected by customers today.
The GPO also features SingPost’s first dedicated philatelic retail store, which will offer both long-time and new stamp collectors the full range of national stamps, and associated merchandise.
The rich heritage of SingPost and the GPO moniker is captured in the design of the GPO at SingPost Centre. Iconic elements from the former GPO at Fullerton have been adopted into modern graphics on the walls, glass panels and POPStation lockers, while historical postal artefacts, such as earlier versions of the ubiquitous posting box, have been recreated.
A heritage video wall retells the evolution of SingPost from a colonial municipal department to a dynamic postal and eCommerce logistics company through different lenses, including the landmark GPO at Fullerton, postal uniforms and Singapore stamps.
At the Philatelic Store, a colonial-era red pillar posting box has been restored and mail dropped into this posting box will be postmarked with a special date stamp in red ink.

District6, Singapore’s newest co-working space, has opened its doors.
Housed on the second floor of Odeon Towers, the chic and minimalist space is designed to flood the space with natural light in the day. The generous 10,000 square feet space is outfitted with comforting furnishings and a pleasing palette of wood and white – drawing from the belief that the art of a decluttered space leads to a decluttered mind. Furthermore, the founders have left it up to the discretion of its tenants to decorate their own office as they see fit such that it would feel more like their very own space.
The promising community that the District6 team have built so far include people who create and innovate the built environment like real estate tech and smart living start-up IglooHome and one of the most significant research and education non-profits in the real estate industry - Urban Land Institute.
The team at DISTRICT6 will host events relevant to the co-working community that inspire and inform, above the usual networking opportunities. Those include, the first real estate tech Hackathon in Singapore hosted in collaboration with IglooHome, keynote speeches and networking hosted by Urban Land Institute, and fundraisers for visionary hotel schools in Myanmar.
The unassuming but elegantly designed space at District6 is utilised to provide a range of flexi desks, dedicated desks, private studios (for teams of 2 to 4), private offices (for larger companies with 5 to 20 people); and four unique meeting rooms.
Amenities and facilities include small meetings rooms, dedicated phone booths, a large boardroom, and an event space that holds up to 100 people, complete with 8-metre high ceiling with a projectable wall. The communal ‘living room’ also houses specialty Coffee bar from Kyoto, Kurasu. All beans are sourced by a specialty roaster around Japan to offer the finest selection of brews to keep the team going throughout the day – all complimentary to members of course.

US tech giant Google's Singapore office which serves as its Asia-Pacific headquarters, is now at Mapletree Business City (Pasir Panjang).
Google opened their first Singapore office in 2007, a tiny space along Collyer Quay occupied by just 24 people. Since then, Asia’s grown, Singapore’s grown and they've grown in Singapore. They now need room for 1,000 Googlers working on new products and projects across Asia for our users, customers and partners. And they also want more room for the community around them —the kind of place that’s useful for gatherings of developers, students, founders, and kids to connect with Googlers and, sometimes, even prime ministers and ministers of trade.
Google has also announced that they’re bringing Code in the Community to 3,000 young Singaporeans from less well-to-do backgrounds. It’s a multi-year, multi-level computer science and computational thinking course to get even more Singaporean kids excited about the potential of technology. They're partnering with Singapore’s four ethnic Self-Help Groups—the Chinese Development Assistance Council, Singapore Indian Development Association, The Eurasian Association and Yayasan Mendaki—to hold weekend classes for kids aged 8 to 15, with an equal mix of boys and girls. The program, which starts in early 2017, will be run by 21C Girls and Saturday Kids at four Community Centers around the island for three years. Google’s support for Code in the Community is made possible through their Data Center Community Grants and RISE Awards programs.
