Orchard Gateway, the newest kid on the Orchard Road retail block, will finally open next Wednesday after a delay of about half a year.

About 45 retail stores, which make up about half of the tenants, will be welcoming shoppers. The rest of the 50-plus tenants, including Hong Kong multi-label store i.t, Swiss watchmaker Swatch and American lifestyle store Crate & Barrel, will open progressively.

More than 90 per cent of the stores will be up and running by the end of next month, says Mr Ong Beng Kian, director of projects at United Engineers Developments, the developer that also co-owns the project with Great Eastern Holdings.

Orchard Gateway is made up of two buildings on diagonally opposite sites that are connected by a glass link bridge.
