As Singapore’s premier shopping belt, Orchard Road is a vibrant and exciting street lined with shopping malls, hotels, and food and beverage offerings. The grand tropical boulevard running through the district has long been a people magnet, always bustling with vibrant street life.
Orchard Road is predominantly a retail belt and is mainly zoned Commercial to support a mix of shops, offices and hotels. There are also several sites zoned for Hotel use to enhance the
attractiveness of Orchard Road as one of Singapore’s key tourist destinations.
This is supplemented by a number of Residential and mixed Commercial & Residential sites that inject a live-in population to the area to ensure round-the-clock vibrancy.
A generous tree-lined pedestrian mall runs through the district, connecting major developments, public open spaces and MRT stations.
URA would like to make Orchard a walkable and pedestrian-friendly district with an attractive and vibrant streetscape by ensuring seamless, all-weather connectivity and accessibility between developments and the MRT stations, and by encouraging innovative design, varied building forms, public spaces and various active uses along the Orchard Road pedestrian mall.
The Bras Basah/Bugis district is strategically located close to the premier Orchard Road shopping belt and the Civic District.
