Sun Hong Kai and Capitaland will join hands together to give the underpass a face lift.
A spokesperson from ION Orchard said the pedestrian passageway will be widened to double the existing width, and there will be shops on both sides of the underpass. According to the CEO of Orchard Turn Developments, Soon Su Lin, there will be a facelift which will be similar to the underpass connecting Orchard ION and Wheelock Place.
The last time any major work was done there was in 1988. The move is expected to inject vibrancy to the old tunnel. Details of the upgrading will be out at a later stage.
Also, if you are unfamiliar with Sun Hong Kai and Capitaland’s joint ventures, Orchard ION and The Orchard Residences Orchard most highest and iconic residential building as of present, are championed by the two developers.
