Marina One (Chinese:滨海盛景) is a mixed-use development bounded by Marina Way and Straits View in Marina South, Singapore. The area has been earmarked by the Urban Redevelopment Authority to be a vibrant new growth area for residential, commercial and lifestyle activities.

The developer of Marina One is M+S Pte Ltd, owned 60:40 by Malaysia’s strategic investment fund, Khazanah Nasional and Singapore’s investment company, Temasek. M+S Pte Ltd was established to implement the land swap deal between Malaysia and Singapore, and the land parcel occupied by Marina One is part of the land swap. Wholly owned subsidiaries of Mapletree Investments and UEM Sunrise Berhad have been appointed as project managers of Marina One.

Designed by Christoph Ingenhoven, Marina One covers a total gross floor area of approximately 3.67 million square feet. The development will include two 34-storey residential towers, two 30-storey prime grade A office towers and a retail podium, The Heart, which will feature lush greenery and landscaping by Gustafson Porter and ICN Design. Both were landscape architects behind Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay in Marina South.

Unveiling ceremony

The Prime Ministers of Malaysia and Singapore, Najib Razak and Lee Hsien Loong unveiled the design of Marina One as part of the 4th Malaysia-Singapore Leaders’ Retreat on 19 February 2013.

At the ceremony, the Prime Ministers described the project as “an iconic building” and a “momentous collaboration between Malaysia and Singapore” which would be positioned “in an unprecedented scale on the world map as a new financial centre.”

Groundbreaking ceremony

Members of the M+S Board broke ground on Marina One on 11 July 2012. Speaking at the ceremony, Tan Sri Azman Yahya, chairman of M+S revealed that the development would “define new standards of luxury urban living in Singapore, creating a benchmark for international excellence in design and sustainability” in line with the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s (URA) long-term vision for Marina South as a growth area in establishing a global business and financial hub.

The Heart

An estimated net floor area of 140,000 square feet retail podium in the centre of Marina One will offer gastronomic and lifestyle options. The centerpiece of The Heart will be a biodiversity garden which Christoph Ingenhoven has envisioned as a sanctuary and a green civic space for communities to come together at the heart of Singapore’s CBD. It will feature an array of lush greenery at the centre of the development comprising waterfalls and rooftop gardens.

Marina One will bring to life Singapore’s ‘City in a Garden’ concept with a unique garden ecosystem within the development, providing a sanctuary and green space for communities amid the hustle and bustle of the CBD.

Marina One Residences

Marina One Residences (Chinese: 滨海盛景豪苑) is the residential component of Marina One totalling an estimated 1.23 million square feet and will comprise 1,042 apartment units over two 34-storey residential towers. The units range from one to four bedroom units and penthouses.

Located in Marina South, the commercial towers will feature two high density 100,000 square feet net floor plates – one of the largest in Asia.
