Compass Point was built as an integrated development together with the adjacent Sengkang MRT/LRT station and Compass Heights condominium. Constructed at a cost of S$230 million, the shopping mall started operations in August 2002. The shopping centre was the first major mall to open on the North East Line.
The shopping mall has an approximate retail area of 269,098 square feet (25,000.0 m2). Retail space is spread out over four storeys and a basement. Each storey of the shopping centre is named after the five major continents, with motifs showing different aspects of that continent, such as flora and sea-transport vessels: Oceania (basement storey); Asia (ground floor); Europe (2nd storey); The Americas (3rd); and Africa (4th).
