One Sengkang Mall is a shopping center located in Sengkang New Town, Singapore. It is currently closed for upgrade and is scheduled to be reopened in late 2016. Originally opened in 2002, it was originally called Compass Point, and retained that name until its closure. When it reopens it will be under the new name of One Sengkang Mall. There is a series of condominiums, the Compass Heights complex, located physically above the mall itself.

The mall is based around the themes of education. Numerous panels and posters frequent the common areas, offering trivia on a number of topics. This theme was decided on after surveys were conducted of the local populace, and is related to the fact that many residents of Sengkang New Town are youthful. In addition, each of the mall’s five floors offer designs and merchant products based on motifs from different geographical regions: “Oceania” (basement), Asia (1st floor), Europe (2nd), The Americas (3rd), and Africa (4th). Treasure Crest is a stone throw away from Sengkang General and Community Hospital and Sengkang Sports and Recreation Centre. It is near to Sengkang MRT and Waterway Point.
When the mall is reopened, tenant merchants will include: the Sengkang Public Library, Jack’s Place, Pepper Lunch, Cold Storage, Toast Box, Kopitiam, Starbucks, Swensen’s, Bossini, McDonald’s, and Kentucky Fried Chicken.

The mall is strategically placed in many ways. It is close to public transportation MRT stations, as well as the Sengkang Bus Interchange. Several schools lie not far away, as well as banks, supermarkets, and other retail centers. Furthermore, there are multiple other condominium-style residences within accessible range. This ease of reach ensures that One Sengkang Mall, when open, has extensive patronage and good business. The mall has recently transferred ownership, with M&G Real Estate buying out all remaining shares and becoming the sole owner. Treasure Crest EC is also right next to Cheng Lim LRT Station.
This mall made local news in 2008 when a play called “The Little Nyonya” was performed on the ground floor. It drew a very large crowd, which exerted enough weight that several of the ground floor’s tiles cracked and popped.
