Tour CapitaSpring, a 280-meter mixed-use tower, designed by Bjarke Ingels Group, features at its midsection the Green Oasis, a four-story, 35-meter-high open-air space within the building envelope, threaded by a gently descending pathway lined with extensive planting and gathering spaces. Atop the building is the equally spectacular Sky Garden, Singapore’s highest publicly accessible observation deck, featuring a terraced urban farm and panoramic views of Marina Bay and the CBD. The tower also integrates a hawker center (food hall) at its base, drawing a huge cross-section of Singapore’s population day and night.

Join us at Marina Bay Sands for an exclusive, curated, two-hour back-of-the-house tour, culminating in the world-famous Skypark, a horizontal plane set atop the three-tower development, featuring an infinity pool with jaw-dropping views. Designed by Moshe Safdie, Marina Bay Sands is synonymous with Singapore in the public mind. The tour will showcase the vast undertaking behind the scenes that keeps 10,000 employees moving about efficiently, as well as sustainably managing the substantial volume of waste generated from the hotel, casino, convention center and shopping center.

Located next to the historic Stadium Merdeka within an integrated development, the Merdeka 118 complex forms the new heart of Kuala Lumpur. In addition to the signature tower, the complex is rounded out by a retail mall, three premium residential towers, a dedicated viewing platform with a textile museum, 1.6 hectares of greenery and public open spaces, a childcare center, and a mosque, all of which are equipped with modern infrastructure and world-class amenities.
