Previously known as Compass Point, this shopping centre became One Sengkang Mall in December 2015 after a competition invited the local community to suggest a new name called. While the name sparked some mixed reactions on social media, the mall’s location in the centre of Sengkang New Town near to Treasure Crest Anchorvale provided inspiration for several entries, with rejected suggestions including Sengkang Central Mall, One.

The new name sparked some mixed reactions on social media. However, the mall’s location in the centre of Sengkang New Town provided inspiration for other several entries, with rejected suggestions including Sengkang Central Mall, One Sengkang and Sengkang One.
The mall was originally opened in 2002and is situated just off Sengkang E Road, near to the Sengkang Sculpture Park. Treasure Crest EC location means it is well-placed to make the most of some excellent public transport links. Several bus stops are located on surrounding streets,while Sengkang Bus Interchange and Sengkang MRT/LRT station both form part of the mall complex.

One Sengkang Mall was closed for much of 2016 as it underwent a major renovation. Prior to this closure, it had been Singapore’s first themed shopping centre. Centred on ‘learning’, the range of shops and amenities were complemented by the likes of trivia posters and information-filled panels. Each of the floors was also named after a continent, with the mall featuring murals and other design aspects inspired by that area for Treasure Crest Sim Lian.
It was no stranger to hosting live entertainment either. In 2008, The Little Nyonya roadshow stopped by the mall, with the drama’s cast attracting around a crowd of approximately 5,000 people.

Global giants such as Starbucks and McDonald’s are present alongside local High Street names, with the mall even providing a home for the Sengkang Public Library. The complex even features a condominium, placing residents in a fantastic central location.
