I think few people ever wondered. Why Wisma Atria, Ngee Ann City, Meritus Mandarin, Orchard Building, Orchard Shopping Centre are so far from the road....

When buildings on the other side like Tang Plaza, Lucky Plaza, Paragon are right beside the road?


Below the footpath, actually called Orchard Road Pedestrian Mall or something....
Is a river!!!

Or rather, a river-converted-canal. Called Stamford Canal. It appears in old maps as 'Freshwater Stream'.


Old pic of Orchard Road showing Wisma Indonesia.
Sounds familliar?
It is now Wisma Atria!

I wont say places like Paragon or Tangs are right beside the road, in fact, there is fairly generous pavement width for pedestrians to walk comfortably, without the perils of traffic.

That's the front. Orchard Road is not visible, to the right.
The little road in the pic is the embassy's internal road.

maybe its because many pics are taken outside the shopping centres, showing pedestrians...perhaps the better-dressed crowd are inside in the aircon

nice pics!

WISMA and Paragon's new facade really add a lot of brightness to the streetscape.
