VivoCity offers a vibrant and diverse mix of retail, food and beverage and entertainment outlets, filling up 1.04 million square feet of net lettable floor space. The extensive retail areas that make up VivoCity are complemented by large, interesting recreational, entertainment and event spaces to provide a stimulating mix of activities that will define VivoCity as Singapore's ultimate lifestyle destination.
VivoCity's many open spaces offer the opportunity for relaxation and enjoyment, regardless of whether it is along the 300-metre harbour front promenade, on the sky roof among play pools the size of four Olympic swimming pools or the second-storey open-air courtyard with its engaging and interactive water features. Created as an interactive space for children, the play court on level two includes a mist garden, as well as several incarnations of the Vivo Punch character, each three metres tall and five metres wide. Each one is equipped with a motion sensor that allows it to either speak or blow soap bubbles, allowing these 'playful' characters to interact with children.
The presence of these outdoor spaces, cleverly interspersed among the many retail and lifestyle stores and restaurants, make VivoCity a truly multi-experiential encounter of retail, leisure and entertainment.
Description of the location and accessibility
VivoCity is the centerpiece of the entire HarbourFront Precinct, an area that spans 24 hectares and encompasses offices at the HarbourFront Office Park, retail and cruise amenities at the HarbourFront Centre, as well as a mega multi-entertainment hub at St James Power Station. With all these components, including premium residential developments like The Caribbean at Keppel Bay and the Sentosa Cove developments, all situated within a single location, the HarbourFront Precinct will epitomize the true Work, Live and Play concept of the modern urban lifestyle.
VivoCity's proximity to some of Singapore's top tourist attractions like Sentosa, Mt Faber and cable cars, as well as the upcoming integrated resort with casino, will enable it to tap on the high levels of visitor arrivals to these attractions. Just five minutes drive from the Central Business District, it is accessible to all and can be reached by road, rail, bus, monorail, ships, and even cable cars.
VivoCity is accessible through all modes of transport. VivoCity is connected to the HarbourFront MRT station and the North-East Line. By 2010, the Circle Line will be fully complete, linking all radial lines leading to the city.
The presence of HarbourFront Bus Interchange makes travelling by bus simplicity itself, with the numerous services that travel to and from the destination, including service numbers 10, 30, 30e, 57, 65, 80, 97, 97e, 100, 131, 143, 145, 166, 409.
The Sentosa express will also ease travelling conditions as it provides an easy, comfortable and convenient way to get to and from Singapore's Island Resort. Created to replace the old monorail system that had been in place since 1982, the Sentosa Express is intended to meet the more sophisticated needs of the 21st century visitor. It will be operational by early 2007, and will allow for more efficient methods to bring visitors on and around the island.

Features mall architecture
VivoCity is designed by world-renowned architect, Toyo Ito. Central to the mall’s design is its ‘Surfing’ theme, inspired
by the proximity of the development to the waterfront, successfully evoking images of waves at sea. To accompany
the mall’s unique architecture, VivoCity specially commissioned several art installations from the inaugural Singapore
Biennale of 2006 to be sited at the mall’s public spaces, collectively offering visitors a stimulating experience.
Commissioned at a cost of more than S$1.5 Million, the collection comprises 13 extraordinary outdoor art pieces by six international artists and will be the only ones from the Biennale to be permanently installed. These larger than life art pieces adorn various outdoor spaces such as the courtyard, the roof-top plaza, and the 300-metre boardwalk. With the intent to grow and evolve this art collection over time, VivoCity will also install the winning design of the VivoCity International Student Design Contest, which it co-organised with DesignSingapore Council.
