From the air, Changi Airport's future Jewel is a glittering sight. When completed, Jewel Changi Airport, slated to open early next year, will shine with more than 9,600 pieces of glass, specially made in the United States, that frame its facade. The facade and works inside are expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of this year. The 10-level mainly commercial development with five basement floors will house about 300 shops and food and beverage outlets. Highlights include a 40m indoor waterfall and a five-storey garden with about 2,500 trees and 100,000 shrubs from countries such as Brazil, Australia, Thailand and the United States. Connected directly to Terminal 1, Jewel will be linked to Terminals 2 and 3 via air-conditioned bridges with travelators.
