nice looking but personally i don't think it's a good idea to place such a huge complex at the bay front. so far the new downtown does not seem to make the skyline more attractive.

The building is part of the new downtown area when fully completed the skyline will look something like this:

actually i saw this vision before. i mean the complex is a bit too massive and overwhelming to be placed right at the bay front. it would be better if this complex stood somewhere behind some low or high-rises just like the current downtown which looks so nice. just my opinion anyway

Strong interest registered for Phase Two of MBFC project
By Julie Quek | Posted: 24 November 2010 2316 hrs

SINGAPORE : The asset manager of Marina Bay Financial Centre said it has received "very strong interest" from prospective tenants for Phase Two of its Marina Bay Financial Centre project.

This is when marketing efforts have not yet started for Phase Two.

Phase Two includes the Marina Bay Financial Centre Tower 3, which is slated for completion in 2012.

Raffles Quay Asset Management said that about 56 per cent of Marina Bay Financial Centre Tower 3 has already been leased out.

The company is confident that it will receive more signed leases "very soon".

Wilson Kwong, chief executive of Raffles Quay Asset Management, said: "We have received very strong interest for Marina Bay (Financial Centre)'s Phase 2, which is in Marina Bay Financial Centre Tower 3. We have actually received a lot of interest from prospects and retailers, who are able to see the potential of Marina Bay as a new district and a new downtown."

The anchor tenant for Tower 3 is DBS Bank, which will be taking up a whopping 55,000 square feet on Level three to build a banking hall and auditorium.

On the retail front, Raffles Quay Asset Management said that Marina Bay Link Mall is currently about 92 per cent leased.

However, some of the restaurants and retail shops will only open in January next year.

Currently, the underground mall is connected to Raffles Place MRT station.

The mall will also be linked to the nearby Downtown MRT station, once this new station opens in three years.

Raffles Quay Asset Management added that for the remaining 8 per cent of the underground mall still available for lease, it will be sticking to its original tenant mix of 60 per cent in food & beverage, while the remaining 40 per cent will comprise of retail.

Dr Chua Yang Liang, Head of Research at Jones Lang LaSalle, said: "There will be about 60,000 people per day who will be working around the (Marina Bay Link Mall) area, who may use this function, these services. So, we think that outlook is quite positive for such (underground) malls because of the captive market."

Some of the restaurants and retail outlets at the underground mall said that they will consider staying open seven days a week.

Analysts, however, believe that over the short-term, the current residential population of 2,000 in the neighbourhood may be insufficient to provide demand for the weekend crowd.

But market watchers believe that the long-term outlook for the underground mall's tenants looks promising once the new Downtown MRT station opens in 2013.

Phase one of Marina Bay Link Mall 92% leased
By KAREN NG

OFFICE types working near Raffles City MRT now have fresh retail therapy to soothe their stressed and rattled nerves.

'About 92 per cent of Marina Bay Link Mall's phase one has been leased,' Raffles Quay Asset Management director of marketing (retail) Rose Tong said yesterday. The mall had a soft opening on Nov 3.

Phase one consists of several plots of land in Marina Bay Financial Centre (MBFC) Tower 1 and 2.

In Tower 1, the land that makes up phase one is below the [email protected] Bay, which amounts to 93,800 square feet of subterranean retail space, plus the ground floor and Level 33.

As for Tower 2, the ground floor and the street level at the Ground Plaza make up phase one. These areas are now open to the public.

Tenants in the mall include Din Tai Fung, New York eatery Madison Deli, Japanese pasta house Yomenya Goemon and Ichiban Boshi.

There is also a supermarket that offers delivery services, called the Four Seasons Gourmet Market.

'Shops will still be opening in the first two weeks of December,' Ms Tong said.

Phase two of Marina Bay Link Mall will involve 82,200 sq ft, spread over three floors in Tower 3.

A temporary occupation permit for Tower 3 is expected in the first quarter of 2012.

To date, Marina Bay Financial Centre Tower 3 is 57 per cent leased, said Raffles Quay chief executive chief executive Wilson Kwong.

Asked if law firm Wong Partnership had leased space in Tower 3 - based on an earlier report that said that the firm 'may be close to inking a lease for about 100,000 sq ft' - Mr Kwong said yesterday that he could not comment on speculation.

He would only confirm that DBS would be the anchor tenant of Tower 3, taking up 700,000 sq ft, while McGraw-Hill and Clifford Chance will each lease one floor.

On further leases, Mr Kwong said: 'Through our experience in managing One Raffles Quay, we understand our clients' requirements, so when marketing MBFC, we know what they need.'

There are already plans to build more skyscrapers in the area some even soaring to about 300m tall. Here's how it will roughly look like:
