You mean there'll be an LV store in the mall too? That'd be really great! It'll be the largest Louis Vuitton store in the world, too.

Would anybody happen to know the total floor size of the store? Would really appreciate it!

Not too sure how big the store will be but it will have a double story duplex store in the mall plus the crystal pavilion.http://marinabaysands.com/Shopping/S...ing_Soon!.aspx

Louis Vuitton stores normally look impressive on the outside so i'm expecting their store in MBS to blow me away esspecially with this crystal pavilion.

There is another crystal pavilion on the other end of the promanade it will house longstanding Hollywood club AVALON.

here's a press realese about them:

Source:http://www.marinabaysands.com/Media_...e_the_U_S.aspx

Famed nightclub Avalon chooses Marina Bay Sands as its first location outside the U.S

Marina Bay Sands today announced that Avalon, a Los Angeles nightclub with celebrity partners including actors Dan Ackroyd and Bruce Willis, has chosen Marina Bay Sands as the location for their latest hotspot. The nightclub will be housed in one of Marina Bay Sands’ unique Crystal Pavilions, transforming the nightlife in Southeast Asia.

The Crystal Pavilions literally sit on the water at Marina Bay. Avalon joins Pangaea, a renowned club in New York, Miami and London, to bring the Crystal Pavilion to life and to make Marina Bay Sands the new entertainment epicenter in Singapore. Avalon has been a magnet for celebrities in Hollywood and has set the international standard for the “big” nightclub experience since 1997.

In Hollywood, Avalon attracts the leading dance music DJs and top concert acts. It is the venue of choice for annual parties for the Oscars, the Emmys, MTV Music Awards and the Grammy Awards.

Avalon Singapore will feature work by top US designers to create a one-of-a-kind experience. At Marina Bay Sands, the sound and audio system will be the most ambitious of its kind.

Mr. David Sylvester, Vice President Retail Asia, Las Vegas Sands Corporation said, “With Avalon’s commitment to excellence in hosting world-class entertainment and a reputation as a celebrity haunt, Marina Bay Sands has set the entertainment benchmark incredibly high. We are ecstatic that our guests will be able to experience the hottest nightlife in the world right here in Singapore.”

Avalon co-founder Mr. Steven Adelman said, “Avalon Singapore offers a unique and exciting opportunity. The combination of Marina Bay Sands’ iconic Crystal Pavilion, our partnership with Kraze Entertainment and our experienced team, creates a thrilling formula. Our sole goal is to create the ultimate entertainment destination.”

Last week, the resort announced that Pangaea, the Ultra-Lounge that swiftly dominated leading cities including New York and London, is launching its most exciting and ambitious project on its property. Pangaea will be located on level one of the Crystal Pavilion and Avalon on the top two levels.

High fashion at MBS

TO MARK the opening of its biggest store in South-east Asia, Chanel staged the first ever fashion show at Marina Bay Sands' Skypark last night.

Set against the city skyline, the event saw 30 models showing off 87 outfits from the French marque's cruise 2011 collection, also known as a resort or holiday range that fills the gap between the two main fashion seasons each year.

It was the brand's largest catwalk show in the region to date.

The event was attended by some 600 guests, including the regional media and local celebrities such as actress Zoe Tay and singer Stefanie Sun.

Chanel opened its first duplex store in South-east Asia in Marina Bay Sands two months ago.

The 7,500 sq ft store is the brand's second store in Singapore.

Marina Bay: Singapore's Flashy New Neighborhood
By Neel Chowdhury Thursday, Nov. 18, 2010

Where the mouth of the Singapore river hits the sea, the Lion City's historic birthplace, a brand new multibillion-dollar city-within-a-city has arisen. Called Marina Bay, it is a commercial, residential, dining and entertainment district girdled by a vast freshwater reservoir, lined by office towers and high-end residences, and boasting an art-filled, Venetian-style piazza swathed in cooling, machine-emitted mist.

Marina Bay's glittering facade reflects a local economy that will grow 13% to 15% this year by official estimates, and not surprisingly, most of the development's diversions are designed for those who have benefited from the boom. Want to enjoy its restaurants, shops, hotels, resort and casino? Then be prepared to spend.

Start your exploration of the new district in the Fullerton Bay Hotel, fullertonbayhotel.com. Named after Robert Fullerton, a former colonial governor, this boutique property stands on stilts, allowing the bay's chocolate-colored waves to lap beneath its low-lying rooms. Located on the spot where the largely seaborne immigrants to Singapore originally landed, bay-view rooms go from roughly $440 a night. If that's too much, you can take in the same vistas for the price of a drink at Lantern, the hotel's rooftop bar.

Fortified by a tipple, proceed on foot around Marina Bay's sickle-shaped piazza to the City Gallery, marina-bay.sg. This free mini-museum tells the story of Marina Bay from its inception — a tale that reflects the pace of Singapore's own growth. Parts of Marina Bay were dredged as far back as the 1970s, and the first land parcel was sold nine years ago. But it wasn't until Singapore's property market began to boom in 2004 — triggered by a swelling population — that construction at Marina Bay began to really accelerate.

A 10-minute walk away from the glass-walled City Gallery is the giant Marina Bay Sands gambling resort, marinabaysands.com. The resort includes Singapore's largest hotel, one of the biggest convention centers in Asia, a mall and seemingly countless gourmet restaurants, among them Waku Ghin, tel: (65) 6688 8507, which is run by celebrity chef Tetsuya Wakuda, and upscale Mediterranean eatery Santi, tel: (65) 6688 8501, set up by renowned Catalan chef Santi Santamaria. There are also architectural flourishes like a canoe-shaped "skybridge" that knits together the Marina Bay Sands' three soaring towers. The view from the top is heady — particularly if you're ensconced in one of the Straits Suites, which are at least 50 floors up. These bolt-holes for millionaires are decorated in the sort of style an Ottoman sultan would favor, and are scattered with wide-screen televisions and sunken marble tubs. Meant for high rollers who place vast bets at the casino's baccarat tables, they go for more than $5,000 a night.

Marina Bay is itself something of a gamble, of course. As with nearly every instance of urban engineering of this magnitude, be it London's Canary Wharf or Shanghai's Pudong, Marina Bay's commercial success or failure will be decided years, maybe even decades, from today. But right now the cost-accounting perspective is hardly front and center. Instead, Marina Bay is all about providing entertainment. After nearly half a century of relentlessly pursuing affluence, and now attaining it, Singaporeans are ready for some fun.

Good to see that the Singapore marina's skyline is getting higher. Have they planned to build a supertall in the area ?
