Junction 8 (Chinese: 碧山第八站; pinyin: dì bā zhàn, stylised as Juncti8n) is a popular heartland shopping mall located in the centre of Bishan. It is located outside Bishan MRT station and Bishan Bus Interchange. Escalators were also installed to offer shoppers more convenience. The name of this shopping centre was derived from the old station numbering of the North South Line sector of nearby Bishan (N8).

History

Completed in November 1993, Junction 8 was the second suburban mall to open in Singapore, after Northpoint in Yishun. When it first opened, it had 73 tenants, such as a Daimaru department store and supermarket, a Golden Village cineplex, Food Junction's first outlet, a SAFE Superstore and various tenants settling in a mall environment for the first time.

In 2004, the mall had an expansion block expanded to accommodate more retail spaces and a linkbridge was built, connecting to the car park opposite the mall. Daimaru was replaced by NTUC Fairprice and Seiyu during the former's exit from Singapore in 2003. The roof garden was relocated from Level 2 to Level 3, equipped with a children's playground and an event plaza. In 2004, the office tower space was decanted into the retail mall, and was subsequently leased to voluntary welfare organisations. In 2013, it underwent a major renovation, repainting its exterior and refreshing the interior of the mall. The children's playground was also renovated. The mall's first basement was connected to the southbound platform of Bishan MRT station too.
