The only location where Singapore Government is investing billions in, Marina Bay the “New CBD”. Marina One is located right at the centre of the “action”. Is it really a great experience living here? If you urge for an urbanized city lifestyle surrounded by skyscrapers with the hustle and bustle of heavy city car and pedestrian congestion during the peak hours, similar to living in the hearts of Shanghai Pudong, New York and Hong Kong financial districts; Marina One is the place for you. Based on the current resident profile within the area, Marina Bay is not a place whereby local families will want to stay at especially if you work nearby, many do not want to live where they work. Adding on, some investors are concerned that residents in Marina Bay will have to be prepared for years of construction and redevelopments, which may be inconvenient as a pedestrian on the surface roads. However, with the underground link malls, much of these constructions will be out of the way. Despite these concerns, Marina Bay remains one of the top investable locations in Singapore and a great place to put your accumulated wealth to work for you.
With the Singapore Government investing in billions of dollars and the unveiling of redevelopment and transformation plans in the URA Masterplan 2014, Marina Bay has already been eagle eyed by many savvy property investors as one of the most prominent investment locations. A four-staged development plan which will be ongoing for the next 20 years, Marina Bay will be undergoing continual massive redevelopment and regeneration into a major business and financial hub in Asia integrating the theme “Exchange”(work), “Explore” (live) and “Entertain” (play), and with planned extensions made into the future “Waterfront City” once the current TanjongPagar and Keppel Ports are relocated to Tuas by 2027. The amount of effort and funding to enhance and develop the transport, geographical and entertainment infrastructure of Marina Bay such as the Marina Coastal Expressway(MCE), International Cruise Terminal and the 4 MRT lines, highlights the determination and momentum of the local government to transform Marina Bay into the World’s top Financial District. With more land in Marina South to be released from 2016, there will definitely be significant room for capital appreciation. Currently we are in year 2014, comparing to the final stages of redevelopment in 2030, are we in the early stages of transformation? If yes, then its time to be one of the pioneer investors. Those who had invested in the previous growth phase (before Marina Bay Sands) had already profited in the first wave. If you had missed out previously, this is the next window of opportunity you do not want to miss.
Value for Money
Marina One is selling at an average price of $2300 to $2500psf, it is priced competitively among it’s older peers like Marina Bay Suites. Being a mixed development and a “national” product by both Singapore and Malaysian governments, Marina One will definitely stand out and assured to be an international icon.
The rentability of Marina One is irrefutably high. With Asia’s largest grade A office floor plates (1.88m sqft) integrated into Marina One’s Office towers and the transport convenience and close proximity to offices will definitely play a great part in attracting potential tenants. Not forgetting the increasing demand of offices in Marina Bay will definitely generate an even larger appetite for residential units in the area. Subsequently, the state of the art architecture,65,000sqft of lush greenery and plentiful modern amenities that Marina One provides, such as the 140,000 sqft retail podium known as The Heart, offering a variety of shopping, lifestyle and signature gastronomic outlets, inclusive of a 26,000 sqft. gym, 8,400 sq. ft. air-conditioned food court, over 9,000 sqft. gourmet supermarket and a wide range of outlets and retail services, not forgetting the double-storey event space that include public terraces, water features and green gardens, will naturally and bountifully adhere to your potential tenants satisfaction.
The interiors for Marina One are of high standards with kitchen and sanitary appliance from German brands like Miele, enjoy the prestige of your very own private lift to your door step. This is a development that you have to see with your very own eyes.
The exterior of a development creates the very first impression for potential buyers and tenants, so its very important to establish and create an iconic and contemporary architecture to facilitate a great impression. Currently with Singapore’s concept plan of creating a garden in a city, Marina One must not only be iconic but also created in a sustainable design. In order to achieve this, the developers engaged award winning architect Christoph Ingenhoven and Architect 61 Pte Ltd for the task. The completed design of Marina One, is inspired by combining four land parcels to become one identity instead of four different buildings Its outer facade defines the city grid whilst the Green Heart binds its towers together. A very uniquely designed architecture, that in my view will win the hearts of many.
Not only must the locality of Marina One be attractive and convenient, the development facilities must also complement with it. Being a national product, we do expect meticulous effort by the developer to carefully plan and inspire the types of facilities catered for everyone. Being in the bustling city, naturally the words relax and rejuvenate comes into mind after a long days work. For Marina One, 4 distinct spaces are created in 3 levels, to cater to each and every type of rejuvenation, with a 50m Lap Pool and a 2000 sq.ft. Gym, Space to Entertain; Clubhouse with concierge, Private Dining rooms and lounges, BBQ and Teppanyaki Terraces, relaxation cabanas and nature and retail lifestyle and F&B conveniences. Seems like a treat for potential residents.
