Following a three-year redevelopment, Funan is set to open its doors to the public on June 28, two months ahead of its original schedule.
The revamped mall will be offering shoppers an experiential and activity-based experience with more than 180 brands centred around the themes of tech, craft, play, fit, chic and taste. Around 30% of the mall’s tenants are new-to-market brands, new concept stores or flagships.

Meanwhile, Golden Village will unveil a seven-screen multiplex with Virtual Reality pods showcasing popular games and cinematic content.

Funan will also showcase local talent with more than 60% of the brands originating from Singapore. These include brands such as artisan jeweller Carrie K, fashion brand Love Bonito and socially conscious footwear brand Another Sole.
More than 30% of the mall’s brands are new to CapitaLand’s portfolio. To date, Funan has achieved about 92% occupancy for its retail leasing.
“The robust demand for Funan’s retail space comes on the back of a strong pre-leasing commitment of 98% for its twin office blocks,” says Tony Tan, CEO of CapitaLand Mall Trust Management.
He adds: “With a clear focus on offering differentiated experiences and connections that are not replicable online, Funan aims to anchor and grow its own community of followers who will keep returning.”
