Pastor Joseph Prince buys mall for $296 million

STRAIT TIMES – On Wednesday (Nov 20), New Creation Church announced that it has acquired The Star Vista mall for $296 million “to protect the interest of the church”.

While the mega church previously owned only The Star Performing Arts Centre (PAC) – a concert venue in the mall that the church also uses for its services – it will now own the entire building.

The purchase was made after the church got wind that CapitaLand, the ex-owner of the retail space, was in talks with other buyers for a potential sale of the mall.
