Changi City Point Hot
Changi City Point is located in the heart of Changi Business Park, directly opposite the Singapore Expo MRT station. The mall is also strategically situated next to the residential estates of Simei, Bedok & Tampines as well as private residential areas like Upper East Coast Road, Kew Drive, Tanah Merah, Upper Changi Road and Bedok Road. Changi City Point offers a refreshingly landscaped rooftop garden and interactive art installations, as well as “The Arena @ L3” - an outdoor gallery for performing, playground and a tree-house trail for children. Changi City Point features restaurants such as Tung Lok Signatures’ third outlet in Singapore, Ootoya, Ajisen Ramen, The Manhattan FISH MARKET and key retailers such as Challenger, Apple Concept Store, Cold Storage and Gain City. New F&B concepts include Egg & Berries, G7 Express Café, Perkies, Lavaedge E.Bar, Table Manners and Yogurt Plus. Joining them are Bagus, a halal certified food court and Koufu. The mall will also be home to Very Special Arts Singapore, a charity providing opportunities for people with disabilities to access the visual, performing and literary arts for the purpose of rehabilitation and social integration.

Changi City Point has a gorgeous exterior, particularly the special rainbow lights that it has. I love watching the colours change so gradually, it's soothing to look at. Its interior also exudes a really classy feel (which sometimes makes me uncomfortable as I feel underdressed)
CCP offers a wide range of food stores from the usual fast-food joints to the expensive family restaurants, so don't ever worry about not being able to find a place to eat. It's more likely you'll worry about the array of choices you're given. There are even food courts on the bottom and the top!
CCP also has a pretty large range of clothing stores to shop at. However, meandering through the mall can get pretty confusing so some stores get buried into oblivion. Be sure to check the directory!
The Point Of It All
Changi City Point is a commendable attempt by the Frasers Centrepoint group to be a bit different from the other run-of-the-mill heartland shopping malls, which tend to suffer from cookie-cutter decor and a bland tenant mix. Located near Expo MRT station, this mall attracts shoppers and diners who live around the area, but I doubt anyone who doesn’t live in the East is going to find it worth the effort to make the trip to this development.
The indoor garden within a mall concept certainly looks pretty and elevates the ambience. The tenant mix is comprised of the usual high street players such as Nike, Adidas and G2000. They call their branches here “outlets” but don’t offer the kind of mark down one would expect from an outlet store.
A welcome addition to the East for those of us that live around here, but don’t bother going if you have to travel.
Great outlet place but too far for me
Changi CIty point is a mall with a lot of outlets stores there. The outlets are from the good brands and they have shifted their off season here to sell, something like IMM, but I think Changi City Point has managed to set itself up as a outlet mall. There are outlets stores like Adidas, COLDWEAR, Espirit, G2000, Key Power Sports, Nike, Samsonite, TImberland, Skechers etc. And most of the items are going at about 40% off the original retail. This is indeed a great place to look for discounts if you do not mind that they are actually off season and sometimes the stock or size may not be available.
Changi City Point also has a lot of eating places to eat, western, eastern, chinese, fast food. Everything is available. I have only been there on weekdays and it is quite busy during lunch time, probably from the office and factory crowd nearby. I guess weekends will be for the visitors to Expo. In its current location, it does not seem to be catering to the general residents, since it is a little out of way to purposely go to this area.
However, it is a bit far for me, and I would probably only go when I go to Expo.
This new mall is a green one, with the concept of "a garden within the mall". This proves to be a very good idea, with many giving praise to whoever had the brilliant idea to put this concept through.
I come to Changi City Point on weekends as it is near my house and I can get a decent meal at Bagus. There are plenty of shops here, and I find the warehouse stores here a huge plus. Do not be fooled by the cheap prices at warehouse stores, the Nike, Adidas, Esprit and G2K warehouse stores here impress me alot, not only with their really marked down prices, but also for the fact the the "defects" are usually no more than a loose thread.
Nice ambience; family friendly.
The first thing that struck me when I first stepped foot into Changi City Point was that it had very nice interior décor, and it was gargantuan. Its interior projects a very comfortable ambience and is relaxing. The best part? Plenty of space for you to move around; making it very family friendly – children can run around wherever they like!
It has many outlets to cater to all kinds of needs. For the food and beverage section, their stores range from The Soup Spoon to Koufu, suiting a wide variety of budget! As for retail, they have stores which sell affordable items like darling, and even the higher-ends ones like Hush Puppies. They even have Gain City; a large electronic store, Cold Storage, Guardian and Watson.
I like to eat at Eatz – it serves very delectable local delights for a very cheap price! You can find a bowl of mee pok, together with coffee or tea all just for $4. What more can one ask for?
To sum it up, it is very family friendly. However, do try to go on weekdays before 5pm. After all, it is in an industrial park and many office workers will go there to have their dinner after they knock off; and boy will it be packed!
I don't know about everyone else, but I actually do like the concept of the entire mall. The first word that came to my mind when I first went into the mall was 'Eco friendly'. For a mall under the Frasers Centrepoint Malls, I'd say that Changi City Point is one of the better facilitated ones compared to the others which is mainly in neighbourhood areas. Being really near to the Expo Mrt station is a plus and also people from the Expo Halls could easily make their way to the mall to have a meal.
Changi City Point is filled with restaurants, fast food chains and even a foodcourt. You can never run out of options there! Another thing that I really like about the mall is the ambience that it gives me. It makes me feel like I'm in a beautiful forest. This is no joke, I'm for real. Probably the reason why I might feel that way is because the floors are mostly carpeted and there are patches and strips of grasses here and there.
This is definitely a place I would recommend tourists. Great buys in Expo Halls, good food and beautiful sights in Changi City Point.
Great in concept, poor execution
I believe that Changi City Point was designed to be an all-in-one Factory outlet mall for a lot of the popular brands like Nike, Timberland etc.
Which is why I am confused as to why most of the supposed Factory-outlet products are still being sold at ridiculously high prices. You do occasionally find bargains, but they are quite rare. Since the prices are not low enough to attract customers, the rest of the mall ends up looking average.
I would like to mention that I thoroughly enjoyed the huge and empty Cold Storage at the Basement floor, which stocked some unique brands of groceries I have not seen before.
There is not much differentiation between Changi City Point and other shopping malls. While it offers good food, it is not as if you cannot find them anywhere else. It does not have a cinema as well, which means even less reason to visit. It is easily accessible from Expo MRT station, so it nevertheless attracts students from SIM-UOL during their exams, which are held annually at the Expo.
You do not need to make a special trip down to Changi City Point, especially if you stay in the west expecting an interesting and novel shopping mall. You will find yourself disappointed.
Nicely renovated but very ordinary
I had a bad impression the minute I approached Changi City Point. The car park was already full. I guess I shouldn't be amazed, after all, it was a Sunday. The security guard was waving at other drivers, telling them to park their cars at the SIngapore Expo instead.
Many(including my family and I) turned a blind eye and went on to park their cars at the double line- the very acclaimed parking spot for drivers. Just beware of the parking attendant.
There's nothing much to say about the shopping mall itself. It's pretty ordinary, excluding the rooftop garden. It is attractive and well-designed. It sort of reminds me of the one in Vivo City.
Changi City Point features restaurants such as Ajisen Ramen, Ootoya and The Manhattan Fish Market. If you find them too pricey, not to panic, there's other inexpensive options. There's Bagus, a halal certified food court and Koufu. The food's of average quality. Simply said, it was palatable. I would rather have my meals at a hawker centre.
The stores were rather boring as well. Esprit, Cold Storage, Gain City... Although I can't say the same thing for Challenger and cache cache. The service in Challenger was marvelous. Every attention was paid to personal sevice and the staff were very cooperative. Yet, this wasn't exactly the case in cache cache. Sure, there's plenty of affordable and stylish clothes, but I can't help to feel that the service was erroneous. They were more interested with their chit-chats. There's room for improvement.
