Orchard Road, more often known as Orchard, runs for almost 2.2 km in the downtown Singapore. It is the heart of shopping and is quite comparable to Hong Kong’s Nathan Road or London’s Oxford Street. Orchard Road is a fashionable boulevard surrounded by thousands of iconic shopping centres, hotels, and restaurants. Nearly 800,000 sqm of stores, entertainment and dining options for any taste or budget – anything from luxurious brands to stylish streets, luxury restaurants to food kiosks. Palm and flower oases welcome you just outside of the malls, deliberately designed to create cozy nooks of freshness and calmness in the midst of metropolis whirlpool. Orchard Road is indeed a shopaholic’s and cosmopolitan paradise which offers a variety of flexible office rental options in different spots of the district. Being one of the most developed and technological cities in the world, it also has a broad range of office rental choices in ultra-modern business centers to suit business needs of startups, medium businesses, and large corporates.
There are numerous one-of-a-kind architectural gems that you cannot observe elsewhere. Like Botanic Gardens on the western flank of Orchard or Goodwood Park Hotel, which is a perfect example of colonial architecture. Somewhere around the halfway of Orchard, there are Emerald Hill and Cairnhill neighborhoods where well-off Chinese population used to build their fine homes. Now elite commercial properties for rent in Orchard are coveted by many influential businessmen.
Not the least important factor in favor of this vibrant place is that getting around Orchard has never been so comfortable and pleasant. There are three main Mass Rapid Transit stations, all very near to Orchard Road: Orchard, Dhoby Ghaut, and Somerset. These stations are vital spots for commuters, and also for tourists who flood to the Orchard Road shopping abundance and business district. There are also numerous bus lines that run day and night; taxis are just at the stretch of your hand as well.
Even more impressive retail facilities and complexes will be soon arriving, which will, in turn, trigger the appearance of further spaces and offices for rent. All of this huge commercial potential inevitably leads to creating more and more business opportunities with really no equivalent in the world.
Orchard Road has already become a real magnet for locals, tourists and business professionals, with over 5,000 venues, businesses and entertainment establishments offering the excellent lifestyle experience for everyone who takes advantage of all the possibilities modern living has to offer.
Orchard Road is a perfect mix of hotels, shopping malls, offices, restaurants and bars, cafeterias, artistic venues, and nightclubs. The official residence and office of the President of Singapore are also situated here.
