The FIABCI Prix d’Excellence Awards recognise projects that embody excellence in real estate and reward holistic schemes that demonstrate outstanding merit across an array of criteria. After winning a Singapore property award in 2012, ION Orchard was nominated for the prestigious award, winning Gold among a top group of retail developments around the world.

ION Orchard has taken on significant national importance since opening in 2009, becoming a retail landmark for the city and selected as one of four Service Icons by the Singapore government.

A multi award-winning development, the design draws deep inspiration from the site’s antecedents as an orchard. The iconic contribution to the city comprises a 125,000m2 retail centre, art gallery, leisure deck and a luxurious residential tower crowned by an Observation Deck offering 360 degree views.

David Buffonge, Director for Asia and Principal Architect for ION Orchard remarked: ‘It is an absolute thrill for us to see ION Orchard still recognised in this way. The award is very prestigious and sincerely validates how successful and important the design of ION is to Singapore and the global real estate industry’.
