(Updated July 2019) KINEX Mall (previously known as One KM Mall) in Tanjong Katong is situated between City Plaza and Haig Road Food Centre. The mall is linked to the residential tower known as Katong Regency and is a five minute walk from the Paya Lebar MRT station. There is no lack of eating places at KINEX Mall – whether you just want coffee, snacks or something more substantial.
Katong Regency and One KM Mall were developed by UOL Group Limited (UOL) in 2014. Earlier this year UOL decided to rebrand OneKM to KINEX, with the new tagline, “Let’s Play”. Although there is more emphasis on lifestyle and community-based facilities, there will still be many F&B outlets in KINEX.
Several original tenants of One KM, such as PappaRich, Starbucks, KFC, Gyui-Kaku, Baikohken and Gelare, are still in KINEX. New restaurants and cafes like Fatburger, Haakon, Hoshino Coffee and Shi Li Fang Hotpot have opened in the rebranded mall. There will be a new food hall that will feature new generation hawkers such as Fishball Story and Two Wings.
