Swim off the edge

IF YOU fancy wading in a pool that makes it seem like you are flying off the edge of a tall building, you will get a shot at that soon.

The Marina Bay Sands (MBS) integrated resort will have a 150m-long infinity pool which overlooks the city skyline on top of its three 55-storey hotel towers. At a height of 200m above ground, it is the highest hotel pool in Singapore, said Ms Val Chua, MBS' corporate communications manager.

Swissotel The Stamford has two pools on its eighth floor at 30m above ground,while The Fullerton Hotel has an outdoor infinity pool on its second floor.

The integrated resort's pool, which is only for hotel guests, is part of the MBS SkyPark, a 340m-long roof-top garden which will bridge the tops of the three hotel towers.
It will have an observation deck set on a cantilever, which the public will be able to access via a non-stop lift from the ground to the top.

Jutting over the edge of the tower toa length of 66.5m, it is the largest of its kind in the world. A 2m-high glass barrier will be built around it.

Apart from the observation deck, there will be landscaped gardens and three food-and-beverage outlets, one of which offers casual dining, while another is a club by night. These are the only areas open to the public.

With an area of 12,400 sq m, the Sky-Park can hold up to 3,900 people. It is not known if there will be an entrance fee. Mr George Tanasijevich, general manager and vice-president of Singapore development at MBS, said the integrated resort is still trying to sort out how to manage traffic flow.

Weighing over 7,000 tonnes, the Sky-Park was constructed offsite. Pieces of its structure will be lifted into position at the top of the towers separately with heavy lifting equipment. The equipment will hoist the segments into place using a computerised mechanism which controls cables attached to temporary lifting gantries.

Lifting will start within the next two weeks, after test trials have been run.Construction work on the $150-million SkyPark should be completed around January next year, and the park should open in the second quarter of next year. -- MYPAPER

I actually like this pic. This is the 1st pic that give us the city view from the Sands Hotel. It is a good location to watch Formula 1 race in the future. Haha. Thanks...

It's impressive and unique indeed. Actually, is there any other skypark of this dimensions and at this height in the world? Well, I can think of bridges like SWFC or KL twin towers, but it's not exactly the same. Only the Pearl in Dubai will be even more impressive to me.
