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.

  • Lots of food and shops available for various budgets from mid to high end. Gathering places for locals and foreign workers during weekends. Best to do booking if planning to dine at some of the restaurants.
  • Superb mall on orchard road. They have nice big space, a couple of camel store along with Mac Studio. When I was there, there was sale going on in the lower basement on bags and suitcases. Value of money stuff.
  • Nice shopping center. Lots of variety of food. Weekend event on promotion.. I love this fountain. Look grand glamor shinny like a wishing fountain.
  • In my opinion this is the best shopping mall in Orchard. It has all the best brand and boutique shops. However the best is Takashimaya Department Store where you will find anything you ever think off, ranging from luxury to mid tier brands.
  • A huge shopping mall in Singapore, full of shops and restaurants. It has a surprisingly good atmosphere. If you are going to Singapore on Orchard, you should visit it.
