Lifestyle and family destination Downtown East in Singapore has completed its five-year redevelopment that brings S$200 million (US$149.4 million) in upgrades, the results of which have been gradually unveiled in the past years.
The latest and final phase of the redevelopment opens the 2.6ha of retail, dining and entertainment area called Market Square, which now houses over 20 per cent more family-oriented retail and F&B merchants.
These include Japanese fashion label Uniqlo by the year-end, Segway distributor Gogreen and 24-hour Indian Muslim restaurant Flaming Spice.
The new offerings join previously revamped facilities, namely the nature-inspired accommodation D’Resort of 387 rooms, the expanded water park Wild Wild Wet, and upgraded events and meeting facilities.
Ronnie Tan, general manager, Downtown East, said: “This destination is designed to serve the needs of everyone. We have fun programmes lined up throughout the year and guests can expect more this year as we celebrate our 30th anniversary.”
For example, the KB Raya Fest will be hosted during the reopening weekend, while upcoming events include Downtown East’s signature Uncle Ringo carnival, Cosfest and Family Fun Fiesta.
