No air-con at Sengkang Grand Mall? We spill the tea on the open-air concept Sengkang Grand Mall with its giant Buangkok Hawker Centre, tasty food options, two kids’ playgrounds, and lots of shops.
After a long wait, the highly anticipated Sengkang Grand Mall has opened with an open-air concept (but don’t worry – there are giant fans to keep you cool!) and lots of options for food and places to shop till you drop. Unlike other shopping malls in Singapore, Sengkang Grand Mall is designed to be an integrated hub with retail shops, a childcare centre, Buangkok Community Club and a hawker centre for residents near Buangkok MRT station.
Since Sengkang Grand Mall mall isn’t air-conditioned throughout, it doesn’t quite feel like your typical mall. We love that the first floor has a giant open atrium with plenty of space for kids to run around. Don’t panic though—there is aircon inside the individual shops and restaurants at Sengkang Grand Mall, just no air-con as you’re walking around the mall. There are giant fans though, so it doesn’t feel hot and stuffy. From delicious food like City Hotpot to Western cuisine at Kenny Rogers and favourite toy shops and baby clothes shops for parents like The Entertainer and Mothercare, Sengkang Grand Mall has it all! Plus, there’s also an outdoor playground and a sheltered playground, where kids can get active and burn off their energy! Here’s all you need to know about Sengkang Grand Mall before you go.
