There can be few sensational waterfront sanctuaries in Singapore considering how land scarce Singapore is. However, the proposition of sea-front views, being ensconced within the vicinity of Shenton Way, and close by to many tourist attractions make Marina One Residences a prime choice for discerning homeowners.

Marina One Residences

This 1,042-unit project where homes are integrated across two 34-storey towers is an architectural marvel – a joint venture between Khazana Nasional and Temasek Holdings. There are four generously-proportioned penthouses ranging from 6,491 sq feet to 8,568 sq feet of space, poised for those who have bigger wallets. More than just domiciles, it also offers 140,000 sq feet of retail space.

In terms of living your life here, amenities abound. There are plenty of private dining rooms, Teppanyaki terraces and a striking 50-metre lap pool. This award-winning, premier integrated development is also at the heart of the Marina Bay Financial district. This project is poised to become one of the best financial districts in the world to live your life, work comfortably and play to your heart’s content.

Even if you own your own set of wheels, Marina One’s closeness to its comprehensive transport network will spoil you to leave your car at home. You can leave your home fresh after a shower and walk down into air-conditioned comfort all thanks to a covered, underground pedestrian network that provides seamless connectivity to the older CBD area and Marina Bay Sands. This prestigious project directly links you to four out of Singapore’s six MRT lines which are North-South Line, Circle Line, Downtown Line and Thomson Line (estimated completion 2021) via the Marina Bay Interchange Station and Downtown Station.

In addition, Marina One is connected to the East Coast Parkway (ECP) and the Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE). It is also a stone’s throw away from a huge array of lifestyle activities situated in malls such as Raffles City, Marina Square, to name a few. Even the annual F1 Grand Prix will allow you to hear the roar of engines once the racing event kicks in.

A lot of thought has gone into the design of this amazing project. Marina One is designed by Christoph Ingenhoven, founder of Ingenhoven Architects, a world-renowned leader in sustainable architecture. Despite its sophisticated facade and masculine architectural details, right in the heart of this project is a “green lung” – a verdant garden called the “Green Heart”. It binds the two towers together, creating a unique place to live, work, and play amidst the frenetic pace of CBD life. For the discerning eye, you can spot the iconic louvres which help to unify the integrated development – an integral detail of Ingenhoven’s supergreen architecture where it creates a comfortable, climatic environment to pursue your lifestyle activities. For nature lovers, there are the multiple stepped gardens – channelling the inspirational design cues of rice terraces in Asia. This green design helps to provide a natural cooling system, all thanks to a lush ecosystem of trees, shrubs, plants and cascading waterfalls. In truth, this oasis is equivalent to five Olympic-size swimming pools of biodiversity, the gardens form the largest green urban sanctuary within Singapore’s CBD for the benefit of Marina One’s denizens and office and retail workers.

Marina One Residences’ Green Heart

More than just a functional design, the project’s “Green Heart” should be celebrated and appreciated. Simply put, it is Marina One’s new tropical habitat where it is erected as a free-formed, three-dimensional garden. Don’t gawk at the sheer amount of flora: over 160,000 plants! Its open, welcoming heart-shaped “green” core features multiple-stepped gardens, lower- and mid-level “sky terraces”, arresting waterfalls and some 2,223 sqm of sylvan landscapes that are beautifully manicured. After you traipse through its verdant gardens, you’ll also stumble upon fine art sculptures and exhibits by Malaysian (i.e. Grace Tan and Sand T Kalloch) and Singapore artists (i.e. Edwin Cheong) located at public areas.

In tandem to respect the environment, the development boasts a Green Mark Platinum Rating and LEED Platinum Pre-Certification. Its green features include plenty of novel details; the building’s orientation and facade help to reduce heat gain and glare on office floor plates by 20 per cent; it uses environmentally friendly green building products; water-efficient features such as rainwater harvesting; energy-efficient features such as air-handling units, LED lighting controlled by motion sensors and regenerative lift braking. Of course, with greenery at the core and sky gardens to boot, this helps to reduce the overall heat of the building while improving cross ventilation. Marina One Residences is an inspirational waterfront sanctuary that fuses urban living, functional offices, prime retail offerings and a lush garden to help you wind down after a hard day’s work.
