From gleaming skyscrapers to immaculately curated green spaces, the Marina Bay precinct is home to some of the nation’s most renowned landmarks. The latest addition to the luminary list is an architectural marvel – Marina One Residences.
Marina One Residences is part of Marina One, a 3.67 million square feet integrated development that bears testament to how the amalgamation of nature, urban living and architectural mastery can give rise to an iconic and sustainable development that redefines a cityscape.
Flanked by undulating curves and multi-level terraces reminiscent of paddy fields found in Asia, the Green Heart forms the core of Marina One around which four towers are built.
An urban tropical paradise sitting on 65,000 square feet of space, the Green Heart is a biodiversity garden populated by 386 species of plants and trees. It is the brainchild of award-winning Ingenhoven Architects, who is renowned for its “super green” architecture, in collaboration with landscape architects Gustafson Porter + Bowman and ICN Design. Drawing inspiration from a rainforest valley, the Green Heart includes a 13m waterfall and reflecting pools. It serves as both an outdoor civic plaza for people to interact with one another and a serene oasis within the city for residents, office workers and the general public.
Much thought has gone into the design of Marina One to maximise natural ventilation, optimise the micro climate and maintain a comfortable ambient temperature within the development.
The green belt in the city continues with Marina Station Square and Central Linear Park located just beside Marina One. The Green Heart and its lush surroundings are significant milestones as Singapore makes its transition from being a Garden City to being a City in a Garden.
The Marina One Residences offers an opportunity to live in one of the most distinctive landmarks in Singapore’s Marina Bay precinct.
The 34-storey development has 1,042 premium dwellings that comprise one- to four-bedroom apartments and penthouses units. Top-of-the-range appliances and fittings from Miele, Poggenpohl and Villeroy & Boch propel homes at Marina One Residences to a league of their own.
Marina One Residences has been awarded the Green Mark Platinum rating for meeting the most stringent of environmental requirements while Marina One was also recognised globally as the Best Innovative Green Building at the prestigious MIPIM Awards 2018.
A suite of water-themed facilities such as a 50m lap pool, jacuzzi, aquatic gym pool and children’s pool offers residents different options to indulge in their favourite aquatic activity. Well-equipped private dining rooms as well as private lounges, barbecue decks and teppanyaki terraces are perfect venue options for residents who wish to host parties and gatherings on a larger scale. A 200sqm gymnasium fitted with the latest equipment provides residents with a holistic fitness experience.
From its prime location, residents at Marina One Residences enjoy spectacular views of the sea, the Singapore skyline and Gardens by the Bay.
Fortune 500 companies that have set up shop at Marina One’s office towers include professional services network PwC, Swiss private bank Julius Baer, oil giant BP and ride hailing platform Grab.
Landlords can look forward to a ready pool of potential tenants when they purchase a unit at Marina One Residences.
The development also comprises a 140,000 sq ft retail podium known as The Heart that is home to signature restaurants such as Majestic Restaurant and Wakanui Grill Dining and acclaimed bars such as The Spot and Nude Chill. Lifestyle and retail offerings such as Cold Storage supermarket and Virgin Active fitness club complete the ecosystem at Marina One, making grocery runs and wellness routines a cinch.
In addition, the development offers excellent public transport connectivity by way of its accessibility to four MRT lines – the North-South Line, Circle Line, Downtown Line and up-and-coming Thomson-East Coast Line
For those who are trying to reduce their carbon footprint, the Marina Bay district is the first in Singapore to be planned upfront with a network of dedicated cycling lanes, making cycling for leisure or commute a safe and convenient activity.
Furthermore, a future underground pedestrian link will provide seamless subterranean connectivity to Raffles Place and the rest of Marina Bay. Major roads and highways such as the Marina Coastal Expressway and the East Coast Expressway are located just a stone’s throw away from Marina One, easily connecting the development to the rest of Singapore.
