SINGAPORE — The redevelopment of Funan DigitaLife Mall, the shopping centre best known for computers and other electronics, will cost an estimated S$560 million and is slated to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2019, said CapitaLand Mall Trust Management in a press release on Friday (July 22).

Work is expected to begin in the third quarter of this year. The mall has been shut since July 1.

News of a three-year redevelopment into  a “creative hub” was first announced on Dec 10 last year.

“The new integrated development will comprise retail, office and serviced residence components measuring approximately 887,000 square feet in total gross floor area, almost double its current size,” said the press release.

In response to TODAY's queries on whether the mall will be renamed, a spokesman for the company said: "We recognise that the Funan name has significant brand equity and goodwill, and will take this into our consideration when we choose the name for the new integrated development."
