I took a trip to Hougang Mall located in Hougang central. I have not been there since years ago when i left disappointed by what NTUC does to that shopping mall. Back then, Seng Kang wasn’t that well developed so the ammenities were limited. Hougang Mall was the only shopping center close by.
The shop selection was all the bare essentials. I was disappointed with it all together such that when we had compass point later on, i never set foot into that mall again.
However, since CapitalMall took over, they have give the whole mall a very refreshing change. Now it has become a mroe enjoyable place to be compare to what it used to be. The number of eateries has increase tremendously. New spaces were opened up to accomodate more tenants. What i notice is the crowd was bigger then years ago. This may or may not be directly related to the enhancement. Nevertheless, the faces on people i see is that they enjoy shopping there compare to the last visit.
CapitallMall will commence Asset enhancement of bugis junction in 4Q 2006. I’m sure alot of ‘gin na’ will be looking forward to a further enhancement to an already adequate shopping experience.
