Project Jewel is an iconic mixed-use complex to be built at Singapore Changi Airport. It is a joint development project af Changi Airport Group and CapitaMalls Asia.
Project Jewel, with its distinctive dome-shaped facade made of glass and steel, will be an iconic landmark in Changi Airport’s landscape. It is designed by a consortium of design consultants comprising Safdie Architects, Benoy and local architects RSP.
Within Project Jewel, there will be unique leisure attractions and activities for the young and old – including a large-scale, lush indoor garden with a central waterfall of about 40 metres in height – and a wide range of retail and dining offerings, including exciting new-to-Singapore concepts, top international brands as well as home-grown names.
The facilities for airport operations in Project Jewel will further strengthen Changi Airport’s existing service offerings to enhance the passenger’s travel
Construction for Project Jewel is scheduled to begin in the second half of 2014, and the development is targeted to open by the end of 2018. Source by Changi Airport Group.
