DFS Group, the world’s leading luxury travel retailer, opens spectacular new wines and spirits flagship duplex store — the first of its kind in the world.

26th May 2015, Singapore – DFS Group, the world’s leading luxury travel retailer, opens its spectacular new wines and spirits flagship duplex store — the first of its kind in the world — at Singapore’s Changi Airport Terminal 3. At 11,400 square feet across two floors, the store is DFS Group’s largest single retail space for wines, spirits and tobacco. The opening of the store marks a milestone in DFS’ leadership and innovation in retail, and the realization of a new vision for retail at Changi Airport.

Philippe Schaus, CEO and Chairman, DFS Group, says, “When we embarked on this unique project, we wanted to offer Singapore, the most renowned travel destination in South East Asia with the most modern airport, a wines and spirits store of a quality and richness unlike anywhere else in the world. That is why we secured the collaboration of Masamichi Katayama to build this one-of-a-kind, two-level experiential store, drawing inspiration from the most stylish bars and restaurants around the world as well as from the traditional and historic cellars of France and Scotland. This project would not have been possible without the close collaboration and shared vision between DFS and the farsighted management team of Changi Airport.”

Designed by Masamichi Katayama, the award-winning interior designer and founder of design firm Wonderwall, the store showcases the luxury retailer’s full assortment of wines, spirits and tobacco in a visually dramatic store environment and façade inspired by flowing water and undulating shapes. Within the store, warm and modern design elements accentuated by a double-height atrium measuring over eight meters high provides an inviting shopping and tasting environment for travelers.

Amongst the store’s most innovative features are expanded common areas designed especially for lifestyle and cultural experiences. This includes a Raffles Long Bar — in collaboration with one of Singapore’s most historical landmarks, the Raffles Hotel — the ground-floor atrium tasting bars, and a private lounge. The Long Bar will serve its famed cocktail invention, the original Singapore Sling.

DFS’ LOYAL T customers can access The Lounge by DFS for an elevated shopping experience. From private viewings to new personal shopping across all product categories of DFS, Changi Airport stores customers will be treated to a highly personalized level of service.

In the new duplex store, DFS also introduces Changi’s first branded boutiques for wines and spirits, situated on the second floor. Nine brands — Absolut, Dom Pérignon, Glenfiddich, Hendrick’s, Hennessy, Johnnie Walker, The Macallan, Martell, and Penfolds — will showcase their heritage and their finest products within individually-designed boutiques.

“For over 30 years, travelers have shopped with DFS at Changi Airport because we are the destination for the best in wines, spirits and tobacco. Our new store reinforces our promise to our customers, and our vision,” says Brooke Supernaw, Senior Vice President, Global Merchandising — Spirits, Wine, and Tobacco. “Travelers will discover exclusive products and unique experiences that will elevate their journey.”

Across all its stores at Changi Airport, DFS has expanded its assortment — one of the largest in the region — to over 1,400 products from over 440 spirits, wines and tobacco brands, while maintaining the region’s lowest duty free prices, with savings of up to 70 per cent off city prices. In wines, DFS offers over 150 different wines including top vintage selections through the Cellar Master Guarantee, a unique service that ensures the provenance of the wines, sourcing directly from a winemaker’s cellar stocks.

In spirits, DFS offers one of the widest airport selections of single malts, with over 110 products from over 50 brands including a range of exclusive single casks in partnership with the Scotch Malt Whisky Society and highly-collectable whiskies from closed distilleries, such as Port Ellen.

In celebration of Singapore’s 50th anniversary of independence, DFS will also introduce exclusive products from The Dalmore, D.O.M. Bénédictine, Jack Daniel’s and Johnnie Walker.

Lee Seow Hiang, CEO of Changi Airport Group, said, “We are delighted to see the first-ever wines and spirits duplex store open its doors at Changi Airport. The store — with its stunning façade and double volume grandeur — is not only a design showpiece on its own, but the extensive range of products and unique boutiques truly enhance the overall retail experience. It is in keeping with the DNA of Changi Airport where service is personalized, stress-free and positively surprising.”

“This new DFS flagship store is the fruit of an enduring partnership we enjoy with DFS and represents our joint commitment to transform travel retail at Changi Airport. We are most honored to present such a unique, game-changing concept to our passengers.”

Shadow Play Unveils the Art of Extraordinary Luxury Living‏
New development on Southbank, Melbourne sees strong demand from foreign investors

12th May 2015, Singapore – Melbourne property developer BMP has unveiled Shadow Play, a luxurious residential development on Southbank in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Designed by renowned architect Elenberg Fraser with interiors by Hecker Guthrie, the towering residence is captivating and majestic from every perspective, exuding the essence of sculptural intent, beauty and human desire.

Shadow Play is a 46-storey, freehold development scheduled for completion in 2018. It boasts a site area of 1,260 square metres and comprises 496 units. A limited 30% has been made available to foreign investors, and at present, the quota has been maximized, with buyers mainly from Hong Kong and China.

Both eloquent and luxurious, Shadow Play’s luxuriously appointed one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments will be enveloped by exquisite materials and finishes including stone, brass and beautifully crafted timbers; discrete yet innovative technology are also woven seamlessly into the fabric of the tower, providing world class digital connectivity and concierge facilities. The rich and sensorial living experience is further augmented by unprecedented private dining, in-house lounge and resident’s gym.

 620x77banner(1)

Situated less than 1 kilometer from the city centre and upon the nexus of City Road and Clarendon Street in Southbank, the residence stands at the entrance of Melbourne’s entertainment and recreation precincts — the excitement and colour of which is matched only by the grandeur and serenity of nearby botanical gardens, parklands and picturesque Port Phillip Bay. The Yarra, an ancient freshwater river intersects the city and gently flows to the north of Shadow Play, reminding residents of the city’s natural bounty while providing a promenade for early morning joggers and urban explorers.

Shadow Play is located only 1.5 kilometres away from Collins Street — the grandest street within the city, celebrated for its mix of glamour and charm, hosting an assemblage of five star hotels, iconic churches, live theatres, Town Hall, world class gastronomic delights and luxury retail boutiques. The residence is also 2 kilometres away from Australia’s premier sporting and entertainment precinct, and a 6-minute walk to Crown Casino and Entertainment Complex.

“Singapore was the second-biggest source for foreign investment in Australian properties in 2015, with a total spending of about A$5.7 billion. The weakening Australian dollar has increased the attractiveness of real estate investments for Singaporean buyers,” said Ms Rhonda Wong, CEO ofAnthill Realtors Pte Ltd, the leading agency involved in foreign sales transactions for Shadow Play. “Melbourne has been ranked as the world’s most liveable city, four years in a row now, and has benefitted from a strong economy, sustained population growth as well as home to a vast array of global events. Shadow Play’s prime location, coupled with its pricing has drawn strong interest from overseas investors who recognize the development’s potential to appreciate in the long run,” she continued.

Most recently, Anthill Realtors was also involved in the Capital 21 @ Capital City in Iskandar Malaysia where they emerged as the top sales team with over 100 units transacted.
