Orchard Central to undergo revamp

Orchard Central will be undergoing a revamp, its first since the mall opened in 2009.

In a statement issued on Monday (Dec 14), Mr Eric Tong, assistant director of Far East Organization’s Retail Business Group said works on the mall began in the fourth quarter of this year and will be completed in the third quarter of 2016.

These include the introduction of new escalators and reconfigured walkways, Mr Tong said, adding that the mall “will be welcoming a major international brand which will be setting up their first Southeast Asia flagship at Orchard Central”.

Mr Tong also revealed that tenants were informed about these plans in June 2015.

“Those affected, which is about 15 per cent of the tenants, were offered to relocate within Orchard Central or to alternative Far East Organization malls to ensure business continuity,” he said.

F&B outlet at Orchard Central, EwF, put up a sign recently to inform patrons that it would be closing that outlet. The sign, placed outside its space in the mall, said its last day of business would be Dec 31, 2015.

The fast-food joint, which is an offshoot of popular restaurant Everything With Fries, said following the closure of its Orchard Central outlet, the only remaining EwF outlet would be located in Bugis.
