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.

    The go-to for shopping - if you like shopping in a nice big mall with all the big-name brands. It's convenient in the middle of the shopping belt. Almost all tourists i know wl get their shopping fix there.

    A great mix of shops and eateries, with options for almost everyone. It's location along Orchard Road also makes it easy to walk to other malls in the area. Events are also regularly held at the plaza and fairs at Basement 2.
