SPECIAL ADVERTISING FEATURE: Conceptualised as part of Marina One, a 3.67 million square feet integrated development comprising of luxury residences, over 140,000 sq ft of retail, lifestyle and F&B spaces, and Grade A offices, Marina One Residences is shaping up to be an ideal place to live, play and work.
Words Michelle Yee
According to the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s (URA) 2019 Draft Master Plan, the Central Business District (CBD) is set to be transformed into a more liveable and vibrant place with more homes and mixed-use developments over the next 10 to 20 years to attract a larger pool of residents. The goal is to prevent the area from being desolate at night or duing the weekends when corporates leave their offices.
One of the latest additions to the area that is set to bring life back to the city centre after office hours is none other than Marina One, a 3.67 million square feet integrated development comprising luxury residences and over 140,000 sq ft of retail, lifestyle and F&B spaces and Grade A offices.
For home buyers who are attracted to the idea of living in the heart of the CBD, Marina One Residences by M+S Pte Ltd will make an ideal choice. More than just a luxurious property located in a prime location, Marina One Residences has been designed with the live-play-work concept in mind, offering residents luxuriously outfitted apartment units, utmost convenience and plenty of options when it comes to dining, recreation and entertainment.
Investors who are considering purchasing a unit at Marina One Residences for investment purposes, they can look forward to a ready pool of potential tenants, especially those working at Marina One Office towers and offices located within the Central Business District.
Interested buyers – whether for investment or residential living – who are keen on this prime 1,042-unit development can pick from one- to four-bedroom apartments and penthouse units, each featuring top-of-the-range appliances and fittings from brands like Miele, Poggenpohl and Villeroy & Boch.
Work Closer to Home
Since opening its doors, Marina One’s 30-storey office towers, spanning approximately 1.88 million sq ft in in floor area, have since welcome several Fortune 500 companies including professional services network PwC, Swiss private bank Julius Baer, and oil giant BP. For those working in one of the companies located in Marina One office towers or within the CBD, they will be able to save time commuting to and from the office, allowing them to dedicate more time to their loved ones and doing the things they enjoy. As for those who are still working from home, visiting their clients and setting up meetings in the city will also be a breeze.
Commuting to the other parts of the island from Marina One Residences will be a fuss-free affair as the development is well served by a comprehensive public transport network by way of four MRT lines: the North-South Line, Circle Line, Downtown Line and upcoming Thomson-East Coast Line.
When the Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) is completed – currently slated to open in the area by 2021 (Stage 3) – Marina Bay MRT station will become a major transport node, offering commuters direct and quick access to the CBD, Orchard and other parts of Singapore. Other new stations that will open along the 43 kilometres route include Marina South and Shenton Way.
Commuting via taxis or car will also be a breeze, thanks to the development’s close proximity to major roads and expressways such as the Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE) and the East Coast Parkway (ECP).
Unrivalled Dining, Entertainment And Recreational Options
Home to a number of attractions, shopping malls and dining options like The Esplanade – Singapore’s premier performing arts centre; the Merlion Park; Marina Bay Sands; the ArtScience Museum; Capitol Piazza; Raffles City Shopping Centre; Marina Square; and Suntec City, residents are presented with plenty of options when it comes to exploring, shopping, dining and engaging in a variety of activities.
Furthermore, with health and wellness coming to the forefront especially during this time, residents will appreciate the development’s holistic approach to wellness, offering an abundance of lush greenery, soothing water features and well-thought out recreation spaces that are designed for ultimate relaxation.
Within the Marina One Residences premises itself, residents can look forward to over 65,000 sq ft of lush greenery and soothing water features built around the development. Aptly named the Green Heart, the green paradise comprises 386 species of plants and trees, and includes a 13m waterfall and reflecting pools.
For leisure and recreational pursuits, residents can enjoy a bevy of recreational facilities like a 50m lap pool, jacuzzi, aquatic gym pool and children’s pool. Alternatively, fitness buffs will appreciate the 200 sqm gymnasium outfitted with the latest equipment. For those who prefer to sign up for a gym membership, the development’s retail podium, also known as The Heart, is home to popular fitness chain like Virgin Active fitness club, which will help make wellness routines a cinch.
Additionally, the development is situated within close proximity to Marina Barrage and Gardens by the Bay, both venues offer ample space for the entire family to bond over an array of outdoor activities like cycling, running, kite flying and more. For those who enjoy going on long runs or bike rides, they can take the Bay East garden route which links to East Coast Park seamlessly, while the Bay Central on Marina Centre stretches to the Helix Bridge.
More Recreational Options in Future
While the Marina Bay area is already bustling with a slew of attractions, shopping malls and dining options, the government has plans to further develop this area to ensure the buzz continues during and after office hours. Envisioned as a thriving and energetic place, a slew of lifestyle developments are slated to be built here over the next couple of years, adding more residential, shopping, dining cultural and entertainment facilities to this area. Singapore’s iconinc tourism destination Marina Bay Sands’ will also be adding a new ‘fourth tower’, adjacent to the existing three towers in the near future, and is set to comprise a state-of-the-art 15,000-seat areana and additional MICE (Meeting, Incentive, Convention, and Exhibition) space besides a luxury hotel tower.
With Marina One Residences, residents will not only be able to enjoy unrivalled convenience and luxury city living, but they can look forward to plenty of lifestyle options.
