Thanks for relaying my pics here :-)
It has been confirmed that the mall should open by end of this year/beginning 2009. The cores you can see in the picture is for the mall. The main tower hasn't risen yet.

Is it just me or had construction slowed down?

Prime space for art at the heart of Orchard

23 Jul 08



IT'S art for art's sake at the swanky new mall being built at Orchard Turn, thanks to a decision to devote a large chunk of pricey retail space to a gallery.
The gallery on the fourth floor of Ion Orchard will feature contemporary art and design by established and emerging artists from Singapore and the region.

At the unveiling of Ion's retail show suite yesterday, the chief executive of mall developer Orchard Turn Developments dismissed the revenue loss from giving up 5,600 sq ft of retail space that could command up to $80 per sq ft.

Instead, Ms Soon Su Lin said the move would allow the mall to contribute to the local and international art scene.

Ion Art, as the gallery will be called, will also be a venue partner for art festivals, such as the Singapore Biennale.

Ion Orchard, which has leased half of its 650,000 sq ft net lettable area so far, also aims to take art appreciation to the skies and street.

The gallery will be linked to Ion Sky, a double-storey viewing space on the top two levels of the 56-storey tower - boasting 46 residential and eight commercial floors - that will be completed in 2010.

And an LED screen on the Orchard Road-facing facade will feature an ever-changing display of digital art.

Ion Orchard is not alone in the race to light up Singapore's premier shopping strip.

The upmarket Palais Renaissance has begun a $16 million upgrade to install a double-skin glass facade - also with dancing LED lights.

Owner City Developments (CDL) said yesterday that the project, helmed by Japanese designers, will involve three-dimensional LED lights changing colours to 'look like they are dancing artistically across the glass to music'.

The facade will be completed by November. CDL is also giving the dated mall's interiors a facelift, to be completed 'in phases' next year.

It is being built over the Orchard MRT station, which continues to be operational. The station entrance will be integrated into the building.

Ion Orchard 80% full

23 Mar 09





WITH four months to its opening, Ion Orchard, one of three new malls on Orchard Road, is already 80 per cent full.
More than 50 per cent of the mall will be taken up by flagship stores, new-to-market brands and new concept stores.

Brands like Cartier, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Giorgio Armani, Louis Vutton, Prada, Uniqlo, Topshop and Topman will showcase their collections in double-storey flagship stores.

The mall, on Orchard Turn, is also bringing in brands like Bimba & Lola, Boss Selection, Chaumet, Christian Audigier, Dsquared, Diane von Furstenberg, Just Cavalli, Marc Jacobs, Patek Philippe, and Vivienne Tam, which are new to Singapore or having its own stand-alone boutiques for the first time.

New dining options, like Watami, AOBA Ramen, Sho Teppan, will also make their debut.

Orchard Turn Developments chief executive officer Soon Su Lin said on Monday: 'We are very pleased with our achieved tenant mix and are fully encouraged by the confidence and strong commitment displayed by many retailers in Ion Orchard.'

Opening against a backdrop of economic downturn, the mall is offering tenants financial incentives of up to 30 per cent off their base rental, as well as special recruitment drives and training programmes.

This is the biggest discount given by a landlord so far, exceeding even the 15 per cent monthly rental rebate giving by Government-linked landlords like Singapore Land Authority and Sentosa Development Corporation.

Rents for the main Orchard Road stretch range from $40 to $50 per sq ft. The rents in the upper-end stretch of the shopping belt range from $50 to $80 psf.
