The Scotts Shopping Centre (Chinese: 史各士购物中心) was a shopping mall in Singapore, located along Scotts Road in the Orchard Road vicinity. The mall was branded as a high-end boutique mall with outlets like Pois, Blush, Crème, and Kiehl's, with professional women as its target demographic.

This branding was a result of a makeover in 1985, prior to which it catered chiefly to the needs of wealthy Indonesian tourists. Also in 1985, the first air-conditioned food court in Singapore, Picnic Food Court, was opened.

The mall occupied the first five floors with 8,632 m² of net lettable area of No. 6 Scotts Road. Above the mall was a 23-storey, 153-unit serviced apartment complex known as The Ascott, which was previously owned by The Ascott Group.

The Ascott Group sold the entire building to Wheelock Properties (then known as Marco Polo Developments) for S$345 million in 2004, but continued to manage the serviced apartments till 31 December 2006.

The shopping mall, previously under the management of CapitaLand Retail, was transferred to Wheelock Properties.

Demolition

In 2006, Wheelock Properties announced plans to demolish the entire building and redevelop it as a luxury residential development of 43-floors, of which three floors would be devoted to an upmarket shopping mall.

Development on the new building, known as Scotts Square (Chinese: 诗阁广场), began in 2007 and was completed in 2011.
