Wheelock Place (Chinese: 伟乐坊; pinyin: Wěilèfāng), (Tamil வீல்லாக் ப்லேஸ்) is a 21-floor office tower and shopping mall on Singapore's Orchard Road. The building was designed by Kisho Kurokawa and completed in 1994 as Lane Crawford Place (Chinese: 达卡佛坊).[1] It is now owned by Wheelock Properties, a division of Hong Kong's The Wharf.

The mall has an underpass to Shaw House and ION Orchard.[2] It was the site of Borders' flagship Singapore store until its closure in 2011.[3]
