Ngee Ann City, Singapore

(3.7/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 義安城是新加坡一座比較歷史悠久的大型購物中心, 購物中心有很多大型品牌進駐, 亦有大型超級市場及各國食肆, 亦有一間超大的書店, 值得一看  more »
  • Mainly come to Ngee Ann City for (a) my optician and (b) the book store. The rest of the stores I find little attraction, maybe after walking through Wheelock / ION already we're shopped out !  more »
  • 20 years ago, too, was surprised "righteous anjo". Etc ION large commercial facilities around, slightly less noticeable, and did, but still has a presence. Speciality brands buy or department store basement gourmet, here is recommended. Calm down, you can buy.

  • Upmarket shopping center at the heart of Orchard road, you can find Takashimaya departmental store and a list of luxury retail brands like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Agnès b, Alfred Dunhill, Fendi and etc. Good place to visit if you are looking for them.
  • Located in the heart of orchard road, very easy to find to be come a rendezvous point. Beautiful scenery & cozy ambient. Perfect place to spend the evening, so many photo spot & memorable.
  • One of my favorite shopping place, it has my favorite book shore: Kinokuniya, supermarket: coldstorage, and a few nice Japanese food courts at B2. Excellent space design and shop diversity, everything is satisfactory, even the speed of escalator and the hygiene of holding belt. Maybe the only thing is toilet access not so easy at underground levels.
  • Love this mall. Lots of food selection. Good foodcourt in the basement in front of cold storage (supermarket). And the basement is connected to other mall, Wisma Atria and ION.
  • Sparks disco may no longer exist, but the anchor tenant Takashimaya is still holding strong after all these years! Never forget to visit Kinokuniya to have a good read and purchase some latest books! Need I mention the foodcourt at the basement? 😍
