This April, the newly revamped Shaw Plaza will reopen its doors, transforming Balestier into a bustling hub of family-friendly entertainment and shopping. To celebrate the relaunch, a weekend of fun-filled activities awaits visitors on April 1st and 2nd, including children’s variety shows, interactive games, and a mesmerizing journey into a whimsical garden filled with colossal mythical balloon creatures.

Situated in the heart of Balestier, Shaw Plaza has been redesigned as a modern lifestyle, retail, and entertainment destination, perfect for families seeking a comfortable and enjoyable shopping experience. The redevelopment project focuses on creating a space where families can share memorable first moments, surrounded by a stunning contemporary design inspired by the rich cultural heritage of the Whampoa-Balestier neighbourhood.

The revitalized mall will reenergize the quiet Balestier area, offering patrons lively community spaces and new experiences. These include a heritage walkway, shophouse-inspired retail and F&B courtyards, an outdoor garden play area, and an 11-screen cineplex featuring a family-friendly cinema.
