Located opposite Yishun MRT station, the mall houses the Nee Soon Central Community Club, the Yishun Public Library and Yishun Bus Interchange. It had completed asset enhancement works in early 2010 to refresh the mall and integrate it with its new extension. The centre has a combined net lettable area of 1,300,000 sq ft (120,000 m2), which consists of numerous retail stores. Major tenants include Cold Storage, Harvey Norman, POPULAR Bookstore, Timezone, UNIQLO, Kopitiam, Anytime Fitness, Hotwind and Krispy Kreme.
Originally called the Northpoint Shopping Centre, it was constructed in November 1992 as the first suburban mall in northern Singapore. It had received a lot of publicity and traffic, inviting many companies to establish stores and shops in Singapore for the first time. Brands like Cold Storage, Swensen's and Giordano opened their first outlets in Northpoint Shopping Centre.
In 2015, the old Yishun Bus Interchange was demolished to facilitate the integration of an air-conditioned bus interchange that will be located within Northpoint City. The integration of the air-conditioned Yishun Integrated Transport Hub (ITH), Northpoint City and Nee Soon Central Community Club was the first of its kind in Singapore. A 920-unit condominium called the North Park Residences also sits on the top of Northpoint City. In July 2017, Northpoint Shopping Centre was officially renamed to Northpoint City where the old building is renamed as its North Wing while the new extension was renamed to the South Wing of Northpoint City.
Existing tenants were retained, such as Cold Storage, Yishun Public Library, Kopitiam, EC House, Timezone and Rubi Shoes. The south wing of the mall was opened in December 2017, increasing the number of tenants to 500, such as high street fashion and more food choices, including gourmet street Makan Town. Anchor tenants include a Harvey Norman Superstore, Uniqlo, Anytime Fitness, NTUC FairPrice and Halal food court Bagus. A new revamped Yishun Public Library, which is located at Level 4 North Wing, opened on 3 February 2018 which includes a new digital learning zone. A sunken garden at Basement 1 connects the two wings together. On level 2 of South Wing, it is now dedicated for family and kids retail stores, such as Cotton On Kids, FOX Kids & Baby, Kiddy Palace and Little Kooma.
The Northpoint City South Wing is directly connected to Yishun MRT station via Northpoint Link which is fully air-conditioned and includes more F&B and retail outlets. The Yishun Integrated Transport Hub (ITH) integrates Northpoint City with Yishun Bus Interchange.
