7 reasons to check out the revamped Funan

Set to open its doors in June, the new and improved Funan has been given a new lease of life after three years.

Funan, formerly known as the Funan DigitaLife Mall, will finally be back in business on 28 June. With 184 tenants that range from new-to-market and new concept to familiar homegrown and returning brands over 12 floors (10 overground and two underground), the revamped complex, which exists alongside office and residential spaces, is set to shake up the retail scene in Singapore and satisfy our favourite pastime — shopping. But before you quickly brush aside the refurbished mall as just another shopping centre, here are seven things you can look forward to at the new Funan.

    1. Check out the tree of life

    Made with over 250 tonnes of composite steel and coming in at a towering height of 25-metres, the Tree Of Life will be the first thing to catch your eye when you enter the revamped Funan. Said to symbolise the creative dynamism and the fostering of curiosity in the retail space, the Tree spans from basement 2 to level 4 and holds 20 retail pods for both established and emerging brands to showcase their products. Not only does it allow the mall and brands to create differentiated experiences, it is also a reason for you to swing by the mall every once in a while as the offerings are rotated in a pop-up concept.
