Sands SkyPark to Redefine Singapore Skyline

Marina Bay Sands creates tourism history with Asia’s largest SkyPark at 200m

Singapore (25 September 2009) – Marina Bay Sands® will soon redefine Singapore’s skyline by lifting the first piece of the 7,000-tonne steel superstructure of the Sands SkyPark® that will be at the top of the Marina Bay Sands hotel towers. With the Sands SkyPark, Singapore will take centre stage and rank among the world’s greatest skylines and tourism destinations.

Lifting this superstructure presents one of the most interesting and complex phases of construction. The groundbreaking architectural design puts the Sands SkyPark 200 meters in the air linking the three separate hotel towers. When it’s completed, the Sands SkyPark will be longer than the Eiffel Tower is tall and big enough to park four-and-a-half A380 jumbo jets.

Marina Bay Sands will use a unique combination of bridge and building technology to build the Sands SkyPark in 14 heavy lifts over the next three months. Each piece takes up to 24 hours to lift to the topmand slide into place. The SkyPark will offer a public observation deck, landscaped gardens, sprawling outdoor pools, signature restaurants, and one of Singapore’s hottest nightspots.

Marina Bay Sands’ President and Chief Executive Officer Mr. Thomas Arasi said, “The Marina Bay Sands SkyPark will offer visitors a once-in-a-lifetime experience and unrivaled views of Singapore. It will serve as a great symbol of recognition for one of the world’s great cities.”

The Sands SkyPark will crown an extraordinary integrated resort with something for everyone. Marina Bay Sands Shoppes® will offer an impressive line-up of 300 stores comprising international luxury brands and cutting-edge and emerging labels new to Singapore. Brands that have committed to open stores in the new retail Shoppes include Bally, Blancpain, Bottega Veneta, Breguet, Bulgari, Burberry, CHANEL, Ferragamo, Gucci, Guess, Hublot, La Senza, Miu Miu, Omega, Patek Philippe, Prada, Raoul, Tiffany & Co. and Yves Saint Laurent.

In addition to the rooftop Sands SkyPark, Marina Bay Sands will feature large and flexible exhibition and convention facilities, a luxury hotel, a museum, Las Vegas-style gaming, the Paiza Club for premium players, world-class theatres, an outdoor event plaza, and restaurants that allow visitors to eat around the world under one roof.

“The scale and architecture of Marina Bay Sands will mean that just walking around the integrated resort in the heart of Singapore will be one of the most exciting attractions on its own,” Mr. Arasi said.
