Kallang mall hopes to make bigger Wave with new tenants

I'm not against SMRT Alpha, but SMRT Retail and NTUC Retail's inexperience is really showing here. Really, Kallang Wave's potential is being squandered by them.

Firstly, I think they need to drop the sports schtick. It just doesn't work if you can't even nab Decathlon or Lululemon as tenants. Next, the mall's layout is terrible - I spent Mariah Carey's entire first-half searching for a way to get to the National Stadium's erm...what you call that, open public space surrounding the stadium.

The Big Read: The Sports Hub nightmare – what went wrong according to insiders, and can the Government run it better?

SINGAPORE: When he first heard the news last week that the Government was taking over the full running of the Singapore Sports Hub, Mr Poh Yu Khing, 49, was glad that it can finally be used for the purposes as intended by the authorities.

After all, the misaligned goals of various parties in the public-private partnership (PPP) had not only doomed the project from the start according to some insiders, they also made the lives of those working on the project a living nightmare.

SINGAPORE: The full cost of terminating the public-private partnership (PPP) for the Sports Hub is projected to be S$2.3 billion, said Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Edwin Tong in Parliament on Monday (Aug 1).

This aggregate sum would be “comparable to the financial obligation committed under the PPP if we had chosen to continue with it, without termination”, said Mr Tong in a ministerial statement about the sporting facility.

Refreshed river boat services by 2024 may provide commuting option to Sports Hub

SINGAPORE - Cheaper tickets will be one carrot to entice more locals to explore Marina Reservoir by boat as the authorities aim to refresh the current cruise offerings and take another bid at providing a commuting option by sea to the Sports Hub in Kallang.

Singaporeans will enjoy at least 25 per cent off standard ticket prices for sightseeing cruises and guided tours along the urban waterfront, which stretches from the Singapore River to Kallang Basin, according to tender documents posted online on Sept 21.
