Marina Bay Sands in Singapore Tops Out Hotel Towers / Complex SkyPark Construction Commences in Next Phase
08.07.2009 07:01

SINGAPORE, July 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Marina Bay Sands(TM), a subsidiary of Las Vegas Sands Corp. , announced today that it has topped out the three 55-story hotel towers, a major milestone in a striking and iconic project to bring Singapore a premier integrated resort.

The company's senior executives celebrated the occasion with an event that attracted approximately 120 regional and local media as well as members of the Singapore government, the construction team, and other distinguished guests.

Las Vegas Sands Corp.'s Chairman, Mr. Sheldon G. Adelson, who came to Singapore for the event, said "Topping the hotel towers at Marina Bay Sands is a milestone in an exciting construction and engineering project. We're pleased to be another step closer to delivering on our promise to Singapore and we remain committed to creating the landmark, premier integrated resort in Southeast Asia."

The architects and construction managers employed industry-leading construction solutions on their way to the 55th story. The construction team had to use steel trusses to link the east and west legs of each tower about half way up and used innovative methods to seal the atriums in each of the three towers and in-between them. After the steel trusses were in place, the team was able to build one new hotel floor every four days, an unprecedented pace for skyscraper construction in Singapore.

Marina Bay Sands will be a unique destination in the region. It will be home to the Sands SkyPark(TM) and the Museum, that symbolizes the 'welcoming hand of Singapore', packaged together as part of a world-class integrated resort nestled in the heart of the city's Central Business District and the ever-expanding tourism and entertainment district at Marina Bay.

The Sands SkyPark is the next critical phase of construction. The contractor will hoist the 7,000-ton structure 200 meters to the top of the towers using technology usually used in building bridges. The process of lifting each of many individual sections can take a full day. When it is completed, the Sands SkyPark will be longer horizontally than the Eiffel Tower is tall and will be the largest cantilevered public observation deck in the world.


Work on the interior and exterior of the hotel towers is well underway and the roof is taking shape on the Sands Expo&Convention Centre and on the casino. Other areas are progressing well.

Mr. George Tanasijevich, General Manager and Vice President of Singapore Development, Marina Bay Sands Pte Ltd, said "Marina Bay Sands will be a magnificent destination, with world-class entertainment, convention facilities, dining, shopping, Las Vegas-style gaming, and a luxury hotel. It will transform the skyline and bolster Singapore's image as the city for business and leisure tourists to visit again and again".

"Over the next few months, we will unveil a range of luxury brand shops, celebrity chef restaurants and world-class entertainment for Marina Bay Sands. There will truly be something for everyone," Mr. Tanasijevich said.

When completed, Marina Bay Sands will feature large and flexible convention and exhibition facilities, approximately 2,600 luxury hotel rooms and suites, the breathtaking rooftop Sands SkyPark, a museum, Las Vegas-style gaming, the Paiza Club for premium players, theatres, entertainment, an outdoor event plaza, and unparalleled shopping and dining.

A video showing how Marina Bay will be like with the completion of the developments now under construction. It includes detailed fly-through simulations of the Marina Bay Sands rooftop and promenade areas.

Marina IR secures tenants for 75% of its retail space

20 Aug 09

MARINA Bay Sands said it had secured tenants for three-quarters of its retail space, including French luxury brand Chanel, which will open its largest boutique in Singapore.

The integrated resort is expected to have about 300 stores for the well-heeled shopper in more than 800,000 sq ft of retail and restaurant space.

But only half of the retail space will open with the resort early next year along with the casino, 1,000 hotel rooms and most of the convention centre.

Marina Bay Sands said it is confident of its success as a 'compelling shopping destination'.

'We have enjoyed enthusiastic responses from retail tenants from all over the world,' said Mr David Sylvester, vice-president of Asia retail at parent company Las Vegas Sands.

Chanel is the first tenant to be announced. More names will be revealed at a later stage, said the resort's spokesman.

The Chanel boutique will be the third store in Singapore and its largest.

At 7,600 sq ft, the two-level boutique will be more than double the size of its first flagship outlet opened here in 1990 at Ngee Ann City.

In March, it opened a second outlet specialising in watch and jewellery, also at Ngee Ann City.

Chanel said it expects Asia to be a growing market for upscale brands.

The new outlet will be designed by New York-based architect Peter Marino, who is behind Chanel's most notable boutiques.

One of them is the 10-storey Chanel building in Ginza, Tokyo, built in 2005. It features a shimmering facade made of liquid crystal glass, woven stainless steel, and more than 700,000 LED lights.
