Tiong Bahru Plaza is a shopping mall located in the northern part of the Tiong Bahru Estate in Singapore, near Tiong Bahru Road, Jalan Membina and Bukit Ho Swee Crescent. It consists of a 20-storey office tower block (Central Plaza), and a 7-storey shopping and entertainment complex, with 3 basement carparks. There are 167 shops and 380 parking lots across 3 basement levels at this commercial development. Tiong Bahru Plaza offers a unique urban experience, being part of the city downtown area.
The mall was the first in the current portfolio of malls to be acquired by the Asian Retail Mall Fund in February 2002. The initial revamp took place in 2003. In the second revamp in 2008, the basement level was expanded to provide a wider range of shops and services. On Level 1, modern and chic dining concepts and new landscaping features were added in the forecourt at the mall entrance and mall frontage along Tiong Bahru Road.
Tiong Bahru Plaza has continued to see a steady growth of shopper traffic over the years, despite increasing competition among newer and larger shopping malls. Over the years, Tiong Bahru Plaza, aptly described as ‘the Mall for Every Generation’, has evolved to better cater to the changing needs of its shoppers and for the next generation.
