CapitaMalls Asia to build “Jewel” complex

Singapore mall developer CapitaMalls Asia and Changi Airport will collaborate to build a mixed-use complex codenamed “Jewel”.

The complex will feature aviation and travel-related facilities, a wide range of retail offerings and unique leisure attractions. It will be constructed on the 3.5 hectare car park site beside Terminal 1.

The complex will be seamlessly connected to terminals 1, 2 and 3. Construction will commence next year and is expected to be completed by 2018.


Envisaged as “Gardens at the Airport”, Jewel is expected to make Singapore appeal more as a hub for global travellers.

“These will obviously increase the tourism mindshare of Changi Airport and of Singapore in attracting even more tourists – the numbers to Singapore and tourism receipts as well,” said Robin Goh, AVP of corporate communications and marketing with the Changi Airport Group.

Changi Airport handled 51 million passengers in 2012 and is targeting 85 million.
