Have you braved the crowds and visited the newly rebuilt Funan mall yet? After a complete tear down and three-year rebuild, it's no longer just an IT mall. An ode to Silicon Valley-style living, Funan now boasts a cinema, a theatre, multiple coworking spaces, a co-living space, an urban rooftop farm and futsal pitch, a multi-story climbing wall and enough cafes serving cold brews to satisfy the most discerning millenial. You can even ride your bike into the mall and use its fully automated click and collect service if you don't want to lug your bags around.
The best part? The Green Collective, originally based at KINEX near Paya Lebar, has now opened its second location at Funan! The bright, airy 2,000 sqft space boasts 30+ green vendors to satisfy all of your eco-lifestyle needs right in the heart of the CBD. It is the only store to be curated based on the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. August Society has moved over to this fab new location and couldn't be happier. Read on to find out more about what's inside!
