Marina South overlooks the Marina Reservoir and the Straits of Singapore. Home to national attractions such as Gardens by the Bay, Marina Barrage and the future Marina South Coastal Park, as well as the upcoming Marina South mixed-use residential neighbourhood, it is envisioned as an attractive, sustainable and community-centric district. These Urban Design guidelines focus on creating a sustainable 10-minute district that is characterised by lushly-landscaped, well-connected, pedestrian and cyclist-friendly streets, and a lively and inclusive public realm, with amenities within easy reach for both residents and visitors alike.
Set amid lush gardens, Marina South, which borders the southern coast seeks to redefine city living as a forward-looking, convivial mixed-use neighbourhood. Imagine a neighbourhood next to Marina Bay and the Central Business District (CBD) that is:
Being a greenfield site, Marina South presents a unique opportunity to champion sustainable living from the start. The precinct has been planned based on the Building and Construction Authority (BCA)’s Green Mark (GM) for Districts framework – Platinum rating. Developments in Marina South are to also attain the accreditation of GM Platinum Super Low Energy (SLE), as well as Maintainability, Whole of Life Carbon and Health and Wellbeing badges. A district planned to harness the prevailing winds, Marina South presents itself as a cool green and blue oasis.
Marina South is well connected to Marina Bay, the CBD and the rest of Singapore via public transit and major roads. Two stations along the Thomson East-Coast (TEL) Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) rail line serve the area. Planned as a car-lite district, it is a self-sufficient neighbourhood with amenities and key recreational facilities planned within an easy 10-minute walk via leafy streets and a comprehensive cycling network. Together with a wide array of public spaces, from a buzzy pedestrian mall to a convivial neighbourhood street, Marina South is set to provide a welcoming experience to residents and visitors alike.
The urban design guide aims to guide the physical development of the area to ensure that individual buildings contribute to the planning vision to create an attractive, sustainable and community-centric district.
