Singapore’s Changi Airport has long been touted as the “best airport inside entire world.” in which status becomes even more cemented on April 17, when the idea will officially open a dazzling presecurity attraction known as Jewel.
Inside will be a lush four-story tiered garden, more than 280 retail as well as dining outlets, a hotel, a multi-screen IMAX theater as well as its centerpiece: a 130-foot-tall Rain Vortex, which will be the entire world’s tallest indoor waterfall.
The next phase of the project rolls out in June, when Jewel Changi Airport opens a bundle of added features (many ticketed) to the public, including a 164-foot-long glass-bottomed bridge, nets for bouncing as well as walking, mazes, topiary sculptures as well as more.
Housed inside a toroidal, or doughnut-shaped, glass as well as steel structure designed by noted architect Moshe Safdie, Jewel Changi Airport will be adjacent to Terminal 1 as well as sits on airport real estate in which was formerly a parking lot. The striking brand new structure at This specific point covers more than 1.46 million square feet. the idea has 10 stories — all 5 above ground as well as all 5 below — as well as was built on budget, at a cost of $1.7 billion Singapore dollars (US$1.25 billion).
“Not only will Jewel augment Singapore Changi Airport’s offerings,” said Jewel CEO Hung Jean during a preview of the space, “the idea will also strengthen Singapore as an attractive tourist destination.”
