Marina Bay, Singapore’s shoreline, is a treasure trove of history. The port had its start here, and it quickly expanded into a major commerce and financial center for the area. There is a lot of history in this neighborhood, from the National Gallery and Boat Quay’s 19th century architecture to the Old Parliament House and the Fullerton Hotel.
Additionally, Marina Bay is the core of Singapore’s future; and people who choose to live here are able to enjoy the lifestyle of the future right now.
With the completion of Marina One, the skyline of Marina Bay has been further enhanced. The award-winning, ultra-modern development, located in the heart of Singapore’s rapidly expanding financial sector, is widely regarded as one of the country’s most sustainable and forward-thinking architectural works.
Marina One has a gross floor space of 3.7 million square feet distributed among two high-rise office buildings, two high-rise residential towers, and a dynamic retail platform designed by renowned German company Ingenhoven Architects. As a part of the Marina Bay Sands complex, the ArtScience Museum, and Gardens by the Bay, it has already established itself as a landmark in its own right.
Both buildings include a total of 1 042 luxury apartments ranging in size from one to four bedrooms, as well as some of the city’s finest penthouses. Many of the houses are spacious and provide stunning views of the surrounding skyline and ocean.
Marina One Residences is the ideal residence for the forward-thinking, successful individual who wants to be close to everything that the city has to offer now, while also anticipating what will come in the years to come. The apartments feature tasteful décor and high-end fittings from Villeroy & Boch and Poggenphol.
“A premier financial center, a civic space, and a communal playground for everybody” is the URA’s master plan for the area around Marina One Residences. Forget the assumption that Singapore’s CBD is just a location where people go to work and then depart; instead, the city’s CBD is being reimagined as an area where people may live, work, and play all at the same time.
It is just a matter of time until the Marina Bay region becomes even more desirable to renters, owners, and investors. Investment returns and appreciation are expected to rise as a result of this expanding popularity. Investors looking for a quick return on their investment may now take advantage of the high demand for rental property at Marina One Residences, which is now complete and available for immediate occupancy.
Marina One’s 1.88 million sq ft of premier office space provides a ready-to-use tenant pool of wealthy professionals employed by the major IT and financial companies headquartered there. Marina One’s location in the heart of Singapore’s CBD makes it possible for top executives at the many big corporations situated nearby to avoid (or at least considerably reduce) their commutes, enabling them to maximize both their professional and personal time.
We can boost our productivity, well-being, and happiness if we forgo commuting and instead live near to our workplaces. For individuals who want to work from home, Marina One Residences’ two- and three-bedroom homes have a study that’s ideal for WFH setups, while the bigger apartments provide plenty of area for a dedicated home office. Large balconies may be used as a second study space, a place to dine al fresco, or even as a secret interior garden.
Marina One is not only conveniently positioned for business, but it’s also a great place to unwind. Many of the city’s most popular restaurants, bars, theaters, shops, galleries, and museums are within easy walking distance of many of the area’s residents’ residences. A seven-minute walk from Marina One brings you to Marina Bay Sands, a world-class shopping and dining destination.
Residents may easily access the nearby MRT stations at Marina Bay, Downtown and the soon-to-be-opened Shenton Way by foot. In the future, homeowners will be able to walk to the Raffles Place MRT station through an underground pedestrian connection. It is easy to go around the island from Marina One, which has direct connections to four of the six MRT lines (North-South, Circle, Downtown, and Thomson-East Coast).
The Marine One complex itself has a lot to offer inhabitants in terms of activities and entertainment. At this mixed-use complex you’ll find everything from fast food and casual to fine dining, as well as terrific bars and cafés, a high-end fitness center and wine shop as well as an array of grocery and convenience store alternatives.
There is a magnificent 50-meter lap pool as well as a 200-square-meter gym, a wellness garden, aqua gym equipment, a jacuzzi, and workout stations in Marina One Residences’ living area. In addition to a private lounge, Teppanyaki Terraces, residential places for relaxation, two private dining rooms with a complete kitchen, and a children’s playground, the complex offers a broad range of entertainment options.
Internationally recognized as the Best Innovative Green Building at the MIPIM Awards 2018, Marina One’s stand out feature is the ‘Green Heart’, with a spectacular garden that occupies the center of four towers. Marina One was also named the winner of the 2020 FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence Awards in the Global Sustainable Development category.
Its undulating rice paddies-inspired organic lines mimic the shape of the complex’s angular architecture and feature a verdant multi-level park. Over 350 varieties of trees and plants, many of which are native to the area and selected for their compatibility to the location, surround a 13-foot waterfall in a landscaped area of 65,000 square feet.
The firm behind Gardens by the Bay, Gustafson Porter + Bowman, developed the Green Heart. Marina One’s primary architect, Christoph Ingenhoven, initially envisioned it as a solution to the issue that many of Singapore’s natural areas are impossible to use during the day, scorching in the sun.
When it comes to the concept of public space, Singapore and its neighboring nations have a lot of work to do” (in Europe). That’s because the weather in some areas is so bad that it’s almost unbearable to be outdoors uncovered. Ingenhoven said, “We were hoping to come up with a solution to it.” Ingenhoven added, “We ripped up the apartment towers in so-called canyons for vertical air movement.
Kathryn Gustafson, a landscape architect, emphasized the significance of this in order to provide the Green Heart’s diverse flora with the proper conditions for growth. Gustafson sees the Green Heart as a “great gift to the city” since it is available to the public. As a result, it’s a present that locals may use on a regular basis.
