Time to say goodbye to the Katong laksa, curry chicken and cheap sports apparels from Queensway shopping centre as it is going up for en bloc after 43 years since it first opened it's doors in 1976.
Shoppers usually go there for sports apparels at bargain deals, or just for a bowl of laksa/curry chicken. The mall used to have a higher traffic with people treating it as the sports mall of Singapore. The mall has reportedly started it's en bloc process together with the adjacent housing apartment, Queensway Tower.
With the introduction of other more accessible retail outlets such as Decathlon, the footfall in Queensway have received a hit of lower footfall in recent years. Some of the store owners are reportedly for a potential en bloc sale.
Is this the end of an era?
