Reclaimed from the sea from the 1970s to provide room for the long-term expansion of the city, Marina Bay is planned to seamlessly extend from the existing Central Business District (CBD) at Raffles Place. This long-term approach to planning allowed Singapore the unique competitive advantage of developing Marina Bay as a new growth area adjacent to the existing city centre.
The development parcels at Marina Bay will be based on an urban grid pattern and extended from the existing city grid network to ensure good connectivity. This grid framework has been developed to allow for the flexible amalgamation or subdivision of land parcels into plots of different sizes, including larger land parcels to cater for buildings with large floor plates to offer maximum flexibility and efficiency for financial institutions.
Sites in Marina Bay are zoned 'White site' to allow developers greater autonomy and flexibility in deciding the most appropriate mix of uses for each site, including housing, offices, shops, hotels, recreation facilities and community spaces. This increases the potential for mixed-use developments and encourages live-work-play communities.
The whole complex cost US$ 4.7 billion
