The highly anticipated shopping mall, particularly by those staying around Yishun and Sembawang in Singapore, has announced that they will be opening their doors on Dec 18, 2020. 

With a connection that links directly to Canberra MRT station, the upcoming Canberra Plaza will give residents of Sembawang (and Singapore) more retail and dining options, including everyone’s favourite Japanese budget store Daiso, as well as the third outlet of popular fast-food chain A&W.

The usual mall suspects will also be setting up shop there — Ya Kun Kaya Toast, Starbucks, McDonald’s, KFC, BreadTalk, and NTUC Fairprice supermarket.

There’s also an entire level dedicated to enrichment centres: Shichida, The Ballet School, Beijing Language School, Eton Academy, and CMA Mental Arithmetic Centre. 

Those with young kids will be glad to know that there’s also an open-air water park and plenty of in-built green spaces. 

Looks like there’s yet another place to hang out during the weekends for Singaporeans staying in the North. But perhaps you might want to wait until the coronavirus situation improves?
