Changi Jewel is set to open in the first half of this year.

More than 90% of the commercial leases at Jewel Changi Airport – the Asian hub’s next-generation leisure and lifestyle destination– have been allocated, according to Joyce Tan, Head, Corporate & Marketing Communications.

Jewel Changi is on track to open in the first half of 2019, with speculation that March is the likely month.

As reported, the sprawling mixed-use development will boast more than 280 retail and F&B units with 70% of the space dedicated to retail and 60% of the listed brands new to Changi Airport.

Connecting Terminal 1’s Arrivals Hall to Terminal 2 and Terminal 3 via pedestrian bridges and travelators, Jewel encourages travellers to traverse nature and retail in Singapore’s largest air-conditioned indoor garden.

Jewel_shoppingShoppers can explore shopping outlets including a duplex boulevard in a retail space thats wrap around Jewel’s Forest Valley walking trails overlooking the centrally located Rain Vortex, which reaches 40-metres high.

The immersive environment also features children’s play attractions, a hotel and aviation facilities plus a multi-sensory art installation in collaboration with Shiseido Travel Retail.

Designed by a consortium led by world-renowned architect Moshe Safdie, the five-storey Jewel is housed in an imposing glass and steel dome structure located in front of Terminal 1.
