Cool building. I'm not sure about the location (not overly familiar with Singapore), but it is a neat design. I like when shopping, residence, etc. are combined.

It is located on top of Orchard MRT station on Orchard Road, in the heart of Singapore's busiest shopping street.

ION Sky
Level 55 and 56 of the joint Orchard Turn development


Panoramic: ION Sky (above) will also have an observation deck and an event space

When ION Orchard opened its doors to the local public last year, the mall was, quite literally, the talk of the town. Later this year, however, it may have to content with sharing the limelight with another new kid on the block - ION Sky.

ION Sky will take up 12,000 sq ft on the top floors of the joint Orchard Turn development (includes ION Orchard, and The Orchard Residences). Spread across two levels, ION Sky will have a panoramic view of the city and will comprise an observation deck and an event space although close to 6,000 sq ft of the area will be dedicated to F&B (including a bar).

For the moment, little information has been released about the project and it may even seem strange to have a drinking hole on top of what should be a quiet residential complex but ION's architects Benoy assures that not only will the residents below ION Sky find themselves unaffected but that the space will become an icon of the area as well.

'Great asset'

'Everyone likes to be up high, and to have a new bar and eatery above the skyline of Singapore is a great asset for the city,' remarks Benoy's chairman Graham Cartledge.

'ION Sky has been strategically planned to link directly with ION Orchard, creating a seamless connection for visitors to the development. This was done by threading private lifts through the tower footprint offering direct access to two top levels of the building.'

He adds that ION Sky will also have a spiralling ramp that links levels 55 and 56 and art and sculptures integrated within the space to give it a more unique identity. 'What we have created is flexible space, with double height glass walls offering panoramic views. Even the layout of the toilets also takes advantage of the views. We will make sure all your experiences whilst up there are memorable!' he concludes.

The last pic is so sick. The lowrise buildings of the project turned out awesome as well. This tower is completed

From Great New Places

When ION Orchard opened its doors to the local public last year, the mall was the talk of the town. Now, with the newly opened ION Sky it looks set to have to share the headlines and limelight with the latest altitude attraction to hit Singapore.

ION Sky will take up 12,000 sq ft on the top floors of the joint Orchard Turn development (includes ION Orchard, and The Orchard Residences). Spread across two levels, ION Sky will have a panoramic view of the city and will comprise an observation deck and an event space although close to 6,000 sq ft of the area will be dedicated to F&B. This 130-seater Australian restaurant 'Salt Grill' will open next month under the care of Celebrity Chef Luke Mangan.

Located on the 55th and 56th levels, ION Sky affords visitors a commanding 360° panoramic view of the city from the highest point in this prime spot, from 218 meters above. The breathtaking picture postcard view will become the perfect backdrop to international runway shows, product launches, celebrity and themed parties. At 218m high, ION Sky is the highest accessible point in Orchard Road and even higher than Marina Bay Sands SkyPark which is 200m high.

I think we can all agree that everyone likes to be up high, and to have a new bar and eatery above the skyline of Singapore is a great asset for the city. The deck area will only be opened to the public in January but the space along with the loos have already opened. Public entry to the deck with can hold 440 people will be via tickets and priced have yet to be announced.
