Ngee Ann City is a shopping and commercial centre located on Orchard Road, Singapore. The S$520 million building was officially opened on 21 September 1993 by then Prime Minister, Goh Chok Tong., a slang-abbreviation of the anchor tenant's name, Takashimaya.Ngee Ann City currently houses the High Commission of New Zealand, which is situated on the 15th floor of Tower A.HistoryIn the 1950s, the land that Ngee Ann City sits on was a burial ground, owned and managed by Ngee Ann Kongsi. It was part of a parcel of land known as Tai Shan Ting, which was bounded by Orchard Road, Paterson Road and Grange Road. A ten-storey Ngee Ann Building was then built on the site, and was demolished to make way for Ngee Ann City.Redevelopment of the site was first considered as early as 1967. Ngee Ann City was planned by Ngee Ann Development and the Orchard Square Development Corporation in the late 1980s. Raymond Woo, the architect who designed the complex, drew inspiration from the Great Wall of China. The intent was to reflect the dignity, solidity and strength of the Ngee Ann Kongsi. Wong spent five years designing and overseeing the project.

  • Great the fact they have kinokuniya on 2nd floor and taka too..they have the high end stores like fendi,chanel also.. we sort have have a bad experience walking via Ngee Ann city. Some con artists for time share holiday homes caught us and took us into their office in a higher floors of ngee ann city..they wasted 2 hours convincing us to take something we didnt want to invest..beware of such scams.
  • It's a high end shopping mall with crowds of locals and tourists shopping. All the usual global brands can be found there and in that sense for me it is like any other mall anywhere else. I don't like these places but give them top marks for being a well run, safe, clean, we'll lit and ventilated pedestrian racetrack
  • Great place to visit. Imp venue at orchid road. It has DRS clinic as well and lot of other similar things.
  • A huge shopping mall in the heart of Orchard road. One of the best and biggest bookstore Kinokuniya is here, so is the luxury department store Takashimaya.
  • Kinokuniya, Takashimaya food hall, Bath & Body Works, Crystal Jade, Tampopo Ramen, too many mouthwatering places to list!
