Tiong Bahru Plaza (Simplified Chinese: 中峇鲁广场) is a shopping mall located in Tiong Bahru Estate, in Bukit Merah, Singapore, near Tiong Bahru Road, Jalan Membina and Bukit Ho Swee Crescent, which is where the entrance to the mall is located. [1] It consists of a 20-storey office tower block (Central Plaza), and a 6-storey shopping and entertainment complex, with 3 basement carparks. The mall is also directly linked to Tiong Bahru MRT station of the East West MRT line, which is accessible from Exit B of the station.

The suburban mall has a total of 167 shops spread across 6 floors.


Developed by UOL Limited, Tiong Bahru Plaza and the adjacent 20-storey office tower, Central Plaza, were completed in late 1994 as the first shopping mall in Tiong Bahru and Bukit Merah. Like a typical suburban mall at that time, it had a cinema, a department store, a supermarket, a food court, and more than 100 specialty shops.

In 2003, the mall was sold to ARMF Pte Ltd.[ citation needed ]

The mall commenced renovation works in 2005, such as converting the entire Basement 1 carpark into retail space and connecting it to the MRT station beside it. In addition, the tenant mix was refreshed as well.

In 2015, Tiong Bahru Plaza underwent a major revamp costing $90 million, [2] changing the external facade, increasing retail space and connecting the mall to the office tower. In August 2015, the mall shut its doors for extensive renovation works and reopened in March 2016. [2] It also added a new playground on the 3rd floor, an updated tenant mix with new retail concepts on all floors, these include Golden Village, Uniqlo, Rubi Shoes and Miniso. [2] An outdoor plaza for events was also created on the ground floor of the mall. In 2017, the mall’s digital directories were affected by ransomware attacks, just before the NETS breakdown on 5 February 2018. [3]

In 2019, JYSK was replaced by Daiso. Sushiro opened the first store at Tiong Bahru Plaza on 19 August 2019. [4]

Frasers Property acquired AsiaMalls Management and its portfolio of five malls in Singapore in 2020. [5] According to a report in The Straits Times, the firm will take over the management of Century Square, Hougang Mall, Tampines 1, Tiong Bahru Plaza and White Sands, as well as office tower Central Plaza.

In the fourth quarter of 2023, Don Don Donki is slated to open an outlet in the mall, taking over the space previously occupied by long-time anchor tenant Popular.
