Airport operator Changi Airports Group (CAG) has revealed that it has found tenants for close to 90% of retail space at its new Jewel leisure complex at Singapore Changi Airport.
Opening in 2019, Jewel Changi Airport will be Singapore’s first multi-dimensional lifestyle destination to integrate ‘Nature, Play and Retail’ elements on a large scale.
Around 280 shops and eateries, of which approximately 60% are new-to-Changi brands, will wrap around the ‘Forest Valley’ and ‘Rain Vortex’ landscapes, providing visitors with a unique retail experience.
Offerings making their debut at the airport include international brands Shake Shack, Pokémon and Läderach, as well as homegrown names including Tiger Beer, Naiise and Supermama, which will be introducing their first concept stores at Jewel.
Shoppers will be able to traverse between nature and retail as they step into the retail corridors leading from the Forest Valley. Specially-created F&B units with terraces overlooking the Forest Valley will offer visitors a picturesque view and unique garden dining experience within an indoor environment. This will be complemented by several recreational attractions located at Canopy Park on the topmost level of the complex.
Hung Jean, CEO of Jewel Changi Airport Devt, said, “It is our vision for Jewel to be a unique destination like no other. Our thoughtfully curated tenant mix reflects Jewel’s aspiration to be a place where ‘Singapore Meets the World, and the World Meets Singapore.’
“Travelers today have grown more discerning about their destinations and their choice of airports to stopover. With this in mind, we hope to create a one-of-a-kind, multi-dimensional destination at Changi Airport to fulfill these needs.
“We firmly believe that Jewel’s unique retail proposition will enhance the overall experience for the millions of travelers who pass through Changi Airport each year.”
