Changi City Point is developed by the same group that came up with the very popular Centre Point in town. Many would come here for the outlet stores including some very firsts (like Payless which sells cheap shoes arranged neatly by size), but what appealed to me more was the design. There was a lot of natural light, green spaces and wider than normal pathways. Reminded me a little of the malls in Orlando. I just wish we had a Target and TJ Mexx and all those wonderful American department stores that we don’t have here. Now that would make me excited. (if you read my other posts you’ll know I hate shopping and blogging about malls keeps me from getting bored when I’m dragged to them).
If I had to pick, out of all the outlet stores, the American Tourister/Samsonite outlet appealed the most to me.
Out of the food places Kuriya, Texas Chicken, Carl’s Junior and Starbucks would probably be where I’d like to eat or just have a drink. There are two foodcourts here as well, but they were so crowded it looked uncomfortable. My conclusion is most people would prefer this mall as they like to shop but I like Katong 112 better as it has a cinema. Liang Court is still my favourite mall, because of Kinokuniya and more authentic Japanese food. I tend to like cosy, not too crowded malls with a simple easy to navigate design and good dining options. It must have a bookstore and a cinema is a bonus.
I like that there’s a Cold Storage here but Market Place at 112 Katong seems more interesting.
The sky lights are such a nice feature. This one in particular was a water feature as well.
The mall wasn’t too crowded yet so there were still places to rest your feet.
As you can tell, I was very taken by all the green features. Adds that feeling of space. Any thing that makes a mall less like a mall is good in my book.
Thought umisushi was cute with the sushi stools. Doesn’t look too comfy though and I prefer proper chairs or best of all, booth seats.
I think the sushi at Kuriya is probably superior.
Here are details of the parking charges and location.
These are my directory picks when it comes to Food:
Carl’s Jr. #B1-28/29

Ho Kee Pau #B1-39
Ichiban Sushi / Kuriya Fish Market #B1-12/13

These are all the outlet stores. I am sure that many out there are interested in this aspect even though I’m not, as this mall seems to have the most number of factory outlet stores.
