Changi Airport Group (CAG) released today its concept plans, codenamed ‘Project Jewel’, for an iconic mixed-use complex to enhance Changi Airport’s offerings and strengthen its position as an international air hub.

To be constructed on the car park site fronting Terminal 1 (T1), Project Jewel will optimise use of the 3.5-hectare plot of land. There will, for example, be a new multi-storey basement car park. As part of the redevelopment, T1 will also be expanded to allow more space for the arrival hall, baggage claim areas and taxi bays.

These enhancements will increase T1’s passenger handling capacity to 24 million passenger movements per annum. Project Jewel is being designed to be architecturally iconic, with a stunning glass and steel fa├žade that presents an impressive view of the complex – from both Airport Boulevard and the sky.

Designed by a consortium of design consultants led by world renowned architect Moshe Safdie, comprising Benoy and local architects Rsp, a key feature of the complex is a large-scale, lush indoor garden with a breathtaking waterfall.
