A seven-story shopping center in the east of Singapore is called i12 Katong (formerly known as Katong Mall and Katong People’s Complex). i12 Katong is situated where East Coast Road and Joo Chiat Road meet. i12 Katong mall had been closed for redevelopment since March 2020. i12 Katong reopened sporadically on December 23, 2021, and formally on June 23, 2022.
This mall had featured a prison-like outside appearance when it was finished in late 1983 (long ago) as Katong People’s Complex, including exposed blue pipes. Back then, it was a strata-titled mall in Singapore with a department store and a number of stores and restaurants. Inside the mall, there were a lot of medical facilities.
The mall’s facade was updated and given a new name in 1995 – Katong Mall. Cold Storage supermarket took the place of the department store, while various educational institutions in Singapore occupied the mall’s higher floors. The mall’s basements had a variety of strata named flats as well as an electronics store.
Due to poor business in the mall, Pua Seck Guan, the former CEO of CapitaLand Retail, purchased Katong Mall in 2009 as part of an en bloc sale for $247.55 million. Following that, a private trust called Perennial Katong Retail Trust was established to acquire the mall from Golden Cape Investment, a subsidiary of Tuan Sing Holdings. Corporate, institutional, and Pua were among the trust’s investors.
In order to revitalize the mall and have it undergo a substantial facelift, the mall closed its doors in the middle of 2010. As a reminder of its location, it had a Peranakan theme when it reopened as i12 Katong in late 2011. In addition, i12 Katong mall housed a Golden Village movie theater, a Food Republic food court, a Cold Storage gourmet grocery, banks, and more than 150 speciality stores. On the fourth floor of i12 Katong, there was a playground that was both wet and dry.
Early in 2016, Keppel Land paid i12 Katong mall’s owners $51.4 million in exchange for a 22.4% share in the building.
The fourth-floor play deck of i12 Katong will be converted into an outdoor dining space, according to designs released in May 2016. A non-profit organization is also expected to occupy space in the mall.
At a cost of $56.6 million in December 2018, Keppel Land paid the subsidiary of Alpha Asia Macro Trends Fund for the remaining 77.6% of the mall. i12 Katong’s atrium was moved to Level 1, where it will have three zones: Fashion Lifestyle, Home and Living, and Family Entertainment.
Then there was the latest renovation which then resulted in the i12 Katong as we know it today. Along with 180 new specialty stores, new tenants inside i12 Katong include Climb Asia, Kindermusik With Love Studios, We are Sultans, and Scoop Wholefoods. Additionally, the Peranakan concept will be dropped, and the company will rename to match modern trends.
The 23rd of June 2022 saw i12 Katong reopening. Among the new tenants in i12 Katong are Core Clinic, a medical co-working space with clinic rooms and medical facilities, and Bistro Bytes, where clients could pick up their food and beverage orders from completely automated lockers. i12 Katong mall also offers brand-new amenities including urban farm areas, food digestors to break down food waste from F&B outlets, and chargers for electric vehicles in i12 Katong’s carpark parking lots.
