International architecture firm Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF) is pleased to announce the recent grand opening of Marina Bay Financial Centre (MBFC), the largest integrated mixed‐use development in Singapore’s new downtown. The ceremony included the Prime Minister, Mr. Lee Hsien Loong, reinforcing Singapore’s position as one of the leading major business and financial centers of Asia.

In his speech, Mr. Lee Hsien Loong discussed how MBFC is the centerpiece of a master plan that has been in the works for more than 30 years. He commented that the development “sets a new standard for environmentally‐friendly buildings, providing sky terraces, integrated landscape, and greenery … Having been personally involved at the beginning, more than a decade ago, it was my great satisfaction to see it come to fruition today.”

According to KPF Design Principal Rob Whitlock, “We are honored to be part of such a significant landmark and important moment in Singapore’s history. MBFC is a vibrant, mixed‐use development, which combines office, retail, commercial, and open space in a modern environment at the edge of Marina Bay. This mix of uses and integration of open space are at the forefront of our efforts at KPF to reimagine the 21st Century city.” The entire development of Marina Bay marks the next chapter in Singapore’s ongoing commitment to a dynamic urban environment. Matching the energy of Sydney Harbor, Marina Bay is a vibrant urban room and a new focal point for the downtown district. Water is the unifying element that connects a performing arts center, retail, dining, hotels, residential buildings, and commercial facilities.

MBFC is situated on the first development site in the new district. Comprising three office buildings and two residential towers on 4.9‐acres (two‐hectares), the project employs a crystalline architectural language to blend dissimilar program elements into an integrated assemblage. The crystal forms, clad in heavily tinted, low‐e glass with a high shading coefficient, are intended to create a strong profile on the Singapore skyline. Their faceted surfaces break up the massing of the individual buildings by reflecting sunlight in different ways. The towers are oriented to maximize views of the marina.  Office Towers 1 and 2 are fully occupied, Marina Bay Link Mall is 100% leased, while Tower 3’s occupancy rate has reached 88% and continues to grow at a healthy rate.
