Located at the Southern tip of Singapore, Marina Bay is a 360ha development designed to seamlessly extend Singapore’s downtown district and further support the city-state’s continuing growth as a major business and financial hub in Asia.
A greenfield site surrounded by water and gardens, Marina Bay provides an opportunity for further urban transformation, attracting new investments, visitors and talent, as well as becoming a new destination for the local community.
Marina Bay has been designed with people in mind, with a 24/7 vibrancy that will include the highly anticipated Integrated Resort (a destination attraction offering world-class hotel, convention, leisure and entertainment facilities, and casino) as well as other residential, commercial and entertainment developments.
Marina Bay will be a place for people from all walks of life to explore, exchange and entertain. There will be apartments set amidst lush greenery near Singapore’s waterfront. The local community and visitors alike can enjoy the parks, waterfront promenade and attend the events and celebrations held at the Bay. State-of-the-art office space and transport infrastructure will provide seamless connectivity for companies and professionals to grow and exchange business ideas. It will be place with a loop of attractions and round-the-clock energy that continues during and outside office hours.
Lying in the southern part of Singapore is an artificial bay formed by reclaimed land. Marina Bay consists of the Marina and Marina South regions which were once upon a time part of the open seas. Now the mouth of Singapore River is at the bay instead of adjoined immediately to the sea.
Architectural achievements like the gigantic durian-like construction Esplanade proudly sits near the mouth of the Singapore River, no sign of its watery past showing in the unwavering magnificence. The largest shopping centre in the whole of Singapore is also placed on this one time no land area. Suntec City has 888, 000 square feet of retail space and even holds a clubhouse for the NUSS members.
A talked about event is the building of the Singapore Casino set up and run by the Las Vegas Sands Corporation. The company is a hotel, gaming and resort development firm with their headquarters based in Las Vegas, Nevada. This very first casino about to be established on the Marina Bay has the plans to become the most expensive casino complex in the world.
