VivoCity (GPS: 1.26463, 103.82232) is the largest shopping mall in Singapore. It is located at Harbourfront Walk off Telok Blangah Road. A soft opening was carried out on 7 October, 2006, followed by an official opening on 1 December 2006. VivaCity occupies the former site of the exhibition halls of the World Trade Centre, which is now renamed the HarbourFront Centre.

VivoCity has 1,500,000 square feet (139,000 sq meters) of gross area, of which 1,100,000 square feet (102,000 sq meters) is given to retail space, making it bigger than Suntec City and Ngee Ann City, but smaller than Bangkok's CentralWorld Plaza. VivoCity was designed by Japanese architect Toyo Ito, and built at a cost of S$417 million.
