Northpoint to get bigger

Posted by jtsmyth8 on October 22, 2007

Yishun residents, who for years managed with only Northpoint to meet their shopping needs, will get a retail shot in the arm next year.

Frasers Centrepoint Trust (FCT), a real estate investment trust (Reit) that owns retail malls including Northpoint, plans to integrate the mall with upcoming Northpoint 2.

Northpoint 2 is set to be completed next year. Once it is fully integrated with Northpoint, it will create a single shopping mall with a total net lettable area of 232,000 sq ft.

FCT says the enlarged mall will be the ‘heartbeat of the north, infusing new life and vibrancy into the community that the mall has been serving over the past 14 years’.

The trust yesterday turned in a bumper maiden set of full-year financial results. Its distributable income for the year ended Sept 30 was $40.4 million, a hefty 11.1 per cent above forecast.
