Jewel Changi Airport (Jewel) and Shiseido have announced the naming rights partnership of the Shiseido Forest Valley; a wondrous 4-storey indoor ‘forest’ which will allow visitors to experience the Japanese appreciation of nature, beauty and art.
Jewel (scheduled to open on 17 April 2019) will have one of the largest indoor collection of plants in Singapore, with about 22,000sqm of space dedicated to landscaping throughout the complex. The Shiseido Forest Valley will complement Jewel’s wide array of retail and F&B activities, allowing visitors to shop and dine amidst a resplendent indoor forest. Visitors can even take a gentle hike up two cobblestoned walking trails, the East and West Trail, punctuated by idyllic cascading waterfalls and mist clouds.
Made up of more than 900 trees and palms and about 60,000 shrubs, the curation of the indoor forest took concerted effort. Before the installation of the Shiseido Forest Valley, trials were first done in a polytunnel (or hoop greenhouse) to simulate the actual in-Jewel temperature, humidity and light levels. Applying these optimal growth conditions eventually resulted in the dynamic forest experience and selection of plants that visitors will see in Jewel.
The 4-storey incline of the Shiseido Forest Valley also influenced the types of flora selected. For example, the shrubs chosen are shade-tolerant and have adapted to space constraints, just as understorey plants have in real forests. Whether dining at spots overlooking the Shiseido Forest Valley or strolling through the trails, visitors to Jewel can expect an awe-inspiring experience when they walk through this climate-controlled space.

Changi Airport Group (CAG) has announced the completion of construction for its new passenger terminal building, Terminal 4 (T4). The next stage of development will be focused on its interior fittings, as well as preparing it for operations as the terminal will open in the second half of the year.
Construction work on the new terminal, located at the southern end of Changi Airport, commenced in early 2014. In addition to the two-storey passenger terminal building, the construction involved the development of two multi-storey car parks providing 1,700 parking spaces, a two-storey taxi holding area, as well as three vehicular and pedestrian bridges spanning across Airport Boulevard to create new channels of access to T4.
A 68-metre high ramp control tower has also been constructed to enhance air traffic controllers’ management of aircraft movements in the apron and taxiways around the terminal. Completed in under three years, the T4 project involved over 4,000 workers at the peak of its construction works.
For the first time at Changi Airport, T4 will see a terminal-wide implementation of fast and seamless travel (FAST) initiatives to enhance passenger experience and operational efficiency. The preparatory works in the lead-up to its opening will involve the installation and testing of key airport systems and processes including the new FAST self-service and automated options covering check-in, bag-drop, immigration clearance and boarding.
There will also be training and familiarisation programmes organised for airport staff and partners, to prepare them for operations in the new terminal.
UK Sandwich Cafe Chain, Pret A Manger is coming to Singapore in Q2 of 2017. Their first Singapore outlet will be at Changi Airport Terminal 3.
Pret first opened in London in 1986. College friends, Sinclair and Julian, made proper sandwiches avoiding the obscure chemicals, additives and preservatives common to so much of the 'prepared' and 'fast' food on the market. The two of them had woefully little experience in the world of business. They created the sort of food they craved but couldn't find anywhere else.
Pret operates a bit like a restaurant. They build a kitchen in (or very near) every shop. You won’t find ‘sell by’ dates on their fresh sandwiches and salads. They offer our unsold food to charity at the end of each day rather than keep it over.
They avoid the obscure chemicals, additives and preservatives common to so much ‘prepared’ and ‘fast’ food. Their ingredients are delivered early every day. They don’t mind that fresh and fragile ingredients go off quickly – they start from scratch each morning.
The fifth NEWater plant located at Changi has launched yesterday. The plant spans 49,000 sq m, and produces enough water to fill 92 Olympic-sized swimming pools.

Motorists at Changi Village have been enjoying the Housing Board's (HDB's) first new mechanised carpark since last December, as an alternative to patiently waiting for a lot at the open-air carpark in the area.
Built at a cost of $10 million, the new Mechanised Parking System (MPS) has helped to nearly double the number of available parking lots at the popular foodie haunt from 183 to 304.
The carpark is fully automated and allows vehicles to be transferred to available parking spots across a five-storey building.
In order to park, motorists need to drive their cars into one of four car lifts, before switching off their engines and locking their vehicles behind them.
They then punch an eight-digit PIN code in a computer terminal outside and the MPS automatically parks the car once the lift door closes.
Cars are retrieved by entering the same PIN code.
Peak period wait times to retrieve each car ranged between 10 and 15 minutes. It is open to residents for season parking, as well as for visitors at the same parking fees charged at regular HDB carparks.

Zara will be opening a new store at Changi Airport.
The Spanish clothing and accessories retailer is based in Arteixo, Galicia and was founded in 1975 by Amancio Ortega.
It is claimed that Zara needs just two weeks to develop a new product and get it to stores, compared to the six-month industry average and launches around 10,000 new designs each year. Zara has resisted the industry-wide trend towards transferring fast fashion production to low-cost countries. Its most unusual strategy is its policy of zero advertising; the company prefers to invest a percentage of revenues in opening new stores instead.
Zara stores offer men's clothing and women's clothing, each of these subdivided in lower garment, upper garment, shoes, cosmetics and complements, as well as children's clothing (Zara Kids).

Diageo Global Travel together with DFS Group have launched the Johnnie Walker House retail showcase within DFS Group’s new wines and spirits flagship store in the central atrium of the departures concourse at Singapore Changi Airport, Terminal 3.
The establishment of Johnnie Walker House Singapore marks the seventh addition to the expanding international network of whisky embassies. This follows the success of existing flagships in Shanghai, Beijing, Seoul and Chengdu, as well as travel retail theatres in the airports of Taipei and Mumbai. The milestone also celebrates the first Johnnie Walker House in Singapore and Southeast Asia.
The design of Johnnie Walker House Singapore is inspired by the combination of two elements. The first draws from the rich, progressive travel heritage of epic ocean voyages that took Johnnie Walker from the four corners of Scotland to the four corners of the world, making it the world’s first global brand. The second is the evergreen custom in luxury retail of using trunk shows to provide tailored, exclusive experiences to valued clients.
When travellers step into Johnnie Walker House Singapore, they are transported into a retail theatre of a larger-than-life luxury steamer trunk. Designed and built by award-winning Singapore-based design agency Asylum, the highly tactile environment of leather, copper, marble, bronze, wood and steel finishing, brings to life the history, provenance and pioneering spirit of Johnnie Walker.
To commemorate the inauguration of the Johnnie Walker House Singapore, a limited edition of the Johnnie Walker Blue Label will be exclusively available at Singapore Changi Airport. The ivory-coloured ceramic bottle puduced by Wade features the landscape of Scotland and the skyline of Singapore in the brand’s hallmark Willow design. The collectible was illustrated by Dawn Ng and pictorially depicts the historic journey of Johnnie Walker from Scotland to Singapore – from the time John Walker & Sons was established in 1820, in Kilmarnock, to 1885, when the Johnnie Walker whiskies had made their way to Singapore as one of the world’s first modern luxury icons.
