Designed by a consortium comprising Safdie Architects, led by world renowned architect Moshe Safdie, as well as architects from RSP Architects Planners and Engineers and Benoy, Jewel will feature a distinctive dome-shaped façade made of glass and steel. The concept for Jewel’s design represents the juxtaposition of a park and marketplace. This is exemplified in the lush Forest Valley and majestic Rain Vortex that take centerstage in the complex, surrounded by over 280 retail stores and eateries.
Described as a multi-dimensional tourist destination, Jewel is due to open on April 17 2019.
When Jewel opens on 17 April, apart from the repertoire of exciting brands announced earlier, visitors can also look forward to the following anchors: the largest Nike store in Southeast Asia, Marks & Spencer, MUJI, ZARA, UNIQLO, Shaw Theatres with IMAX and FairPrice Finest with unique features such as exclusive products and specially curated sections and event areas. Five Spice, the food court operated by Food Junction, will also feature over 10 local brands, such as Faai Di by Ka-Soh and Fu Lin Yong Tofu, which have more than 20 years of culinary heritage.
Jewel will also notably feature the first Yotelair short-stay hotel to open in Asia, which will be opening a few days early on April 12. The hotel offers cabins bookable by the hour (for a minimum of four hours) including shower cabins for a quick refresh as well as Premium, Accessible and Family cabins for a more comprehensive recharge. The property will also have a 24-hour gym and co-working space.
A number of bus services will enable travellers to get to Jewel from Terminals 1, 2 and 3. Travellers coming from T4 will need to head to T3 first.
It’s also possible to walk to Jewel from T1 via the level 1 Arrival Hall, or through pedestrian walkways from T2 and T3.
Changi Airport Group corporate and marketing communications senior vice president Ivan Tan said: “Jewel is set to be a unique destination, like no other. It offers a mix of lush greenery, a scenic waterfall, incredible retail offerings and family play attractions that together make for an unrivalled experience.
“We are excited to bring a new dimension to the travel and leisure experience of our visitors,”
