Interesting design, simple and very futuristic! But feels a little out of place as NTUC building next to it is also green while the rest of the skyline looks very colourful! But i like it!

Business Times - 28 Apr 2006

New Reuters office at One Raffles Quay


Move will free up room for new staff to join them

By CONRAD TAN

REUTERS, the London-based news and financial information provider, is setting up a new office at One Raffles Quay as it continues to expand its Singapore operations.

The office, spanning some 18,000 sq ft on the 28th floor of the One Raffles Quay building's north tower, will house client training and demonstration facilities, as well as disaster recovery and editorial functions.

Reuters managing director for Asean, Edward Haddad, told BT that around 100 staff will move into the premises when it opens sometime early next year.

The staff will come from Reuters' existing facility at the Singapore Science Park, which will remain in operation. But Reuters' downtown sales office and training facility in the OUB building at Raffles Place will close when the new office opens.

The company, well known for its financial data computer applications as well as news services, has been busy developing new, 'thin-client' applications that can be delivered over an Internet browser.

Such applications would substantially increase the potential client base for the company's products and services, particularly in Asia, said Mr Haddad.

He said the expansion in office space was necessary to accommodate the growth.

The move will also free up room for new staff to join Reuters, he said.

Its staff strength in Singapore has grown from 539 in 2004 to 618 last year, and is expected to reach 767 by the end of the year.

Singapore is one of three global data warehouses for Reuters which delivers high-speed financial data and news to its clients around the world for trading, portfolio management, risk management and other purposes.

Last year, the company set up its global pictures editing desk and global sports desk at its Science Park office.

The desks provide 24-hour support for its team of photographers, editorial staff and clients around the world.

^ That's a great picture! It makes a really positive impact on the skyline, but I think the Sail will have a bigger impact, especially from that angle.

the building does a great job anchoring the area of the downtown skyline bordering the new Marina Bay development and serves as a good lead to the 280m triplets. too bad all that separates it from the Sail is a road. would've been better if they're a block apart so each can stand out better in their own ways.
