About the Study

The Orchard Road Place Management Consultancy Study will take place from November 2011 – June 2012, and will involve a series of engagement programmes with public and private sector stakeholders. The information obtained about the current business landscape such as challenges and sentiments will then be used in a recommendation report.

The study has been structured to include participation by Orchard Road’s key stakeholders. Business owners and stakeholders living and working within the precinct are strongly encouraged to participate.

This initiative is in yours, and your businesses’ interests, as its success depends on the effective management and promotion of Orchard Road.

What is it

Place Management is an approach for getting all stakeholders within an area / precinct to work together to enhance the way people in the area work, live, stay, shop, play and dine. Hence, we want to enhance this collaborative effort dedicated to making sure that Orchard Road:

  • Is attractive & well-kept;
  • Is marketed effectively to the outside world;
  • Is providing something more than shopping to attract visitors; and
  • Continues to be a top destination for tourists and locals alike.

Elephant Parade Singapore

Elephant Parade is coming to Singapore!

After having previous Elephant Parades at Milan, Copenhagen, London, etc., it is time for the elephants to make their way to Asia.

First stop: the Lion City, Singapore!

On 11.11.11, a herd of over 100 brightly painted life-size elephants will swarm the streets of Singapore for two months. This will be the most colourful outdoor art exhibition (and probably the ‘heaviest’!) this city has ever seen.

More than 30 elephants will be displayed along Orchard Road! Catch them from 11.11.11 to 12.01.12.

A Rich History

Orchard Road had its humble origins as an unnamed country road lined with fruit orchards, nutmeg plantations, and pepper farms in the early 1830s.  By the 1850s, the plantations began to make way for residential development, and the street was soon home to Jewish and Buddhist cemeteries, Hindu temples, outdoor hawker centres, wet markets, and even an open-air laundry basin. 

The first signs of retail transformation came only in 1903 with the establishment of Singapore’s very first Cold Storage supermarket, on the site now occupied by The Centrepoint. Orchard Road’s first department store was set up by a local merchant, C. K. Tang, in 1958 on an isolated plot of land facing a cemetery. When the old C. K. Tang building was demolished in 1982, it was replaced by the high-rise Tang Plaza which houses both the department store TANGS as well as the current Singapore Marriott Hotel. The green, curving roof still marks the location of the original department store, today known simply as TANGS.

By the 1970s, Orchard Road had replaced High Street as the city’s main shopping street, and the introduction of cinemas and a bowling alley during the ’60s and ’70s heralded the area as a main entertainment hub. The first multi-storey shopping mall, Plaza Singapura, was built in 1974 on the site where it still stands today. Bigger and better malls and complexes soon followed, creating an eclectic streetscape with no parallel in the world.

Today, Orchard Road has been transformed into a magnet for residents, tourists and workers alike, with over 5,000 retail, dining and entertainment establishments offering the ultimate lifestyle experience.

An Urban Oasis

Spanning almost 2.2km, Orchard Road is a swanky, one-way boulevard flanked by distinctive and iconic shopping malls, restaurants and hotels.  The shopping belt offers nearly 800,000 sq m of retail, dining and entertainment options to please any taste or budget – from opulent brands to high street fashion, and exclusive restaurants to fast food joints.

Outside of the malls, the main thoroughfare is immaculately landscaped with flowers and greenery, creating pockets of cool, natural calm amidst the hectic urban sprawl.  Explore the avenue by walking down the ample pedestrian mall, and take a well-deserved rest under the shade of the historic angsana trees that grace the sidewalks..

Orchard Road is a shopper’s haven and cosmopolitan playground set among a lush, tropical landscape that is ubiquitous in this Garden City. It is truly A Great Street!
