(This is a special feature by Marina One Residences.)
Home to some of Singapore’s most iconic landmarks including Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by the Bay and The Esplanade, the Marina Bay precinct is no doubt one of the most visited areas in the city. The allure of this area is set to continue increasing with the addition of another iconic building—Marina One, a stunning 3.67 million square feet integrated development comprising luxury residences, retail and Grade A offices, and a massive garden measuring 65,000 sq ft.
A development quite unlike its neighbours, Marina One, designed by award-winning Ingenhoven Architects (renowned for their innovative and sustainable approaches) in collaboration with landscape architects Gustafson Porter + Bowman and ICN Design, is a stunning masterpiece where glass, greens and steel blend seamlessly in one space.
Surrounded by nature
Luxurious, poised and contemporary are just some of the words that come to mind when looking at this modern marvel by developer M+S Pte Ltd—a collaboration between Malaysia’s Khazanah Nasional Berhad and Singapore’s Temasek Holdings. While there are many things to like about this development like its striking facade, the most remarkable feature has to be the public garden, sitting between the residential and office blocks.
Dubbed the “Green Heart”, this biodiversity garden, populated by over 380 species of plants and trees, acts as a thoroughfare for residents, executives and shoppers alike, adding much needed harmony between towering structures of concrete and steel with nature. Modelled after a rainforest valley, the Green Heart also includes a 13m waterfall and reflecting pools. Further enhancing the lush surroundings here are two green lungs: Marina Station Square and Central Linear Park, both located just beside Marina One.
Sustainable and luxurious living at Marina One Residences
If the idea of living in one of the most iconic buildings within the Marina Bay precinct, surrounded by nature and modern amenities, appeals to you, you’d want to consider a unit at Marina One Residences, a 1,042 unit luxury residential development at Marina One.
Comprising a good mix of one- to four-bedroom apartment types ranging from 657 sq ft to 2,250 sq ft, each unit comes fully equipped with top-of-the-range appliances and fitting from renowned brands like Miele, Poggenpohl and Villeroy & Boch. Home buyers seeking the ultimate in luxury living can consider one of the four penthouses available, ranging from 6,491 sq ft to 8,568 sq ft. Regardless the configuration, every unit offers gorgeous views of the lush surroundings. Some of the units on the higher floors also provide sweeping views of the sea and the city’s beautiful skyline.
While luxury and sustainability don’t exactly go hand in hand, the developer of Marina One Residences managed to marry these with a flourish, winning the Green Mark Platinum rating for meeting the most stringent of environmental requirements.
For leisure and recreational pursuits, residents will be spoilt for choice with a bevy of facilities including a 50m lap pool, jacuzzi, aquatic gym pool, children’s pool and more, to suit different interests. For those who like to cook and host parties, there are also well-equipped private dining rooms, barbecue decks and teppanyaki terraces in the development that will allow you to organise frequent get-togethers with family and friends over scrumptious food and drinks.
Unrivalled connectivity and access to a host of amenities
Another benefit of living within an integrated development is no doubt the convenience it offers. Residents can walk to work, and to a 140,000 sq ft retail podium that is home to shops, restaurants, a fitness club and Cold Storage supermarket. Foodies will be pleased to know that the retail mall, also known as The Heart, houses signature restaurants like Majestic Restaurant, Wakanui Grill Dining and acclaimed bars like The Spot and Nude Grill.
Additionally, for those taking public transport, the development offers unrivalled connectivity to the other parts of the island by way of four MRT line: the North-South Line, Circle Line, Downtown Line and the upcoming Thomson-East Coast Line. The Marina Bay MRT station, which is expected to be Singapore’s largest and most connected MRT interchange by 2021, is located right next to Marina One.
If driving is your preferred mode of transport, the development is located within close proximity to major roads and highways such as the Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE), the East Coast Expressway (ECP), which will easily connect you to the rest of Singapore.
Eco warriors looking to reduce their carbon footprint can opt to get around on foot or by cycling to their destination. A network of dedicated cycling lanes—the first in Singapore—has been planned for the Marina Bay district, and will make cycling a safe and convenient activity. A future underground pedestrian link, which will link the development to Raffles Place and the rest of Marina Bay is also underway.
Excellent investment opportunity
For those purchasing a unit at Marina One for investment, they can look forward to a pool of potential tenants, as Marina One’s office towers are occupied by a slew of intentional firms including PwC, BP, Grab, and Swiss private bank Julius Baer.
