The ION Orchard mall in Sun Hung Kai Properties Limited’s Orchard Turn joint-venture development in Singapore has been named Best City Shopping Centre for the fourth time in a poll conducted by AsiaOne, one of the most popular information portals in the city-state. The distinction is an endorsement of the mall’s unique design and premium tenant mix.
The AsiaOne People’s Choice Awards this year had more than 250,000 internet users choosing from 251 shortlisted candidates to name the most iconic and popular Asian brands in 27 categories. ION Orchard topped the list of shopping centres in the city.
Orchard Turn Developments Chief Executive Chris Chong said: “We are pleased to win the title of Best City Shopping Centre for the fourth time. It is a testament to ION Orchard’s popularity with local shoppers and visitors and our dedication to creating a premier shopping experience. We thank everyone for their continuous support and commend the efforts of our ION Orchard team in engaging customers with marketing events and social media promotions. ION Orchard will continue to expand and bring in renowned global brands, enabling customers to enjoy a new, inventive shopping adventure.”
Designed by leading architects Benoy, the eight-level, 950,000-square-foot ION Orchard sits on a prime location in the Orchard Road shopping district and houses more than 330 outlets including top international brands and gourmet restaurants. The mall has a distinctive design. Its high-tech display screens on its facades can deliver multi-sensory presentations, while the sheltered public ION Square is ideal for relaxation and can host large events, gatherings and celebrations. Visitors can enjoy a panoramic view of city from the ION Sky observation deck or appreciate works of art in the ION Art gallery, which offers shoppers a taste of culture for added pleasure.
