The mall aims to draw residents from Sengkang, Hougang, Punggol, Seletar and Ang Mo Kio, who are mainly young couples and parents with young children, SPH said in a statement.

The mall will feature tuition and learning centres that offer enrichment courses ranging from languages to art and music.

Some of these tenants include Mavis Tutorial Centre, Mind Stretcher, Vienna Music School, Hi Art, and Han Language Centre.
