Yup, I guess so. Hopefully they can touch it up once they're no longer in the red. And yeah first thing that people see are the low-end stores, so true! What a pity.

I hope so too!! I actually thought that MBS Shoppes will trump ION and Paragon but in my opinion it didn't. However, like everyone said the mall may not be nice, but the interiors of the stores are great. I personally can wait to see how the Louis Vuitton and Avalon crystal pavilions turn out!!

Are the Shoppes busy?

Looking at pics and vids on youtube I wouldn't say it's a hive of activity...

The area around the back of marina bay mrt seems to have developed over the past few weeks for instance laying of new roads and there appears to be a new either marina bay mrt or bus waiting area being built just after you go under the bridge and up the hill as if you were taking the road to the marina south pier

That is the new exit for the Marina Bay MRT station. It should be ready within the next few months. This is my post on that.

Those who want to take the bus to Marina Barrage or Marina South Pier at the bus stop. It sure beats going through the other way which is a little unsafe.
