Northpoint Shopping Centre (Chinese: 纳福坊) is the first major suburban shopping mall in Singapore which opened in 1992.

Northpoint is conveniently located opposite the Yishun and next to the Yishun Bus Interchange. It completed asset enhancement works in early 2010 to refresh the mall and integrate it with its new wing, Northpoint 2. The centre has a combined net lettable area of Template:Convert, which consists of numerous retail stores. Other popular tenants include Cold Storage, Harvey Norman, POPULAR Bookstore and Timezone.

A new feature is the large Template:Convert rooftop water playground.

In May 2010, Northpoint won a bronze award in the BCA Universal Design Award for Built Environment 2010 - Refurbished Building Category. This award gives recognition to buildings which have good practices and take special efforts to raise awareness of the importance of providing seamless accessible built environment for all. Northpoint is also accredited with the Business for Families mark.

HistoryEdit

As the first suburban mall back in 1992, it received a lot of publicity. As this is the first mall, it marked the first time some of these departmental stores or shops venturing to the New Towns. Shops or brand name like Cold Storage, John Little, Swensen's, Giordano, Guardian, Photo Finish, Mark and Spencer's and Toys R Us opened their first outlet in the heartland. Now it is common to see these outlets in the suburban areas.

In 2001, Northpoint underwent a refurbishment programme which saw the interior flooring and signage being replaced.

In 2002, a 2-storey annex housing small eateries and retail outlets was opened on the site adjacent to the bus interchange. The annex was closed in 2007 to facilitate enhancement works.

A new extension to Northpoint opened in October 2008 while a refurbishment and reconfiguration of the existing Northpoint and another further extension to Northpoint on the site of the former annex is completed.

TenantsEdit

The following is a list of existing and new tenants that are or will be located in the reconfigured existing Northpoint and its new extension, as at September 17, 2009.[1] They are subject to change as new tenants enter and as existing tenants vacate or are relocated with the ongoing enhancement works at Northpoint.

ProgrammesEdit

Northpoint has a monthly kids programme that engages kids through creative craft workshops.
