The Marina One development in the heart of Singapore’s Central Business District will be a coveted business and lifestyle destination that will raise the bar for integrated developments.

M+S, which is owned 60:40 by Khazanah Nasional and Temasek Holdings, said its development marks a brand new chapter in the Marina Bay Masterplan.

Its design was unveiled on Tuesday by Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his Malaysian counterpart, Mr Najib Razak, who are holding their Leaders’ Retreat.

Marina One, designed by world renowned architect Christoph Ingenhoven, will be completed in 2017, with a gross floor area of 3.67 million square feet.

It consists of Marina One Residences, Marina One Offices as well as a retail podium.

Marina One Residences comprises two towers of 1,042 luxury city residences, ranging from one- to four- bedroom units, including penthouses. These will be launched in the second half of 2013.

Marina One Offices — with east and west towers — offer 1.88 million square feet of prime office space.

Its crown jewels will be two 100,000 square feet office floor plates, one of the largest in Asia.

Marina One will also have a retail podium called The Heart, which will also serve as a sanctuary and green space.
