Fusionopolis Phase 2A begins construction

JTC Corporation (JTC) has begun the development of the Fusionopolis phase 2A project at one-north, which will house various research institutes and private companies within a complex.

The company has called for a tender to procure the services for the construction and completion of all works, which include all temporary, foundation, architectural, structural, façade and landscaping works, as well as electrical and mechanical services, for two towers in phase 2A.

Situated at the junction of Fusionopolis Way and Ayer Rajah Avenue, towers A and B will offer 18 and 11 storeys, respectively.

Built on a 1.04 ha site, Fusionopolis phase 2A will feature a multi-storey business park, dry and wet laboratories and office areas, with a gross floor area (GFA) of about 84,000 sq m.

This is in line with the goal of developing Fusionopolis phase 2A into a research node that will promote information dissemination and technology transfer, as well as nurture a vibrant research community, said JTC in a statement.

A cluster within the one-north research hub at Buona Vista, Fusionopolis supports the development of physical sciences, infocomm technology and engineering.

Fusionopolis phase I was officially unveiled in October 2008. After the commencement of the Fusionopolis phase 2A development, JTC is also aiming to launch the site for phase 3 of Fusionopolis by the end of February, it said.

    Some things in life are hard to explain, like why a dentist insists on asking you questions when you clearly can't respond. Or why we call pants "a pair" even though it's just one. Or how about this puzzler: Why a person would drive their Mustang along a Texas highway despite it missing a wheel? Life is full of little mysteries, I guess.

    All-new 2015 Subaru Outback reestablishes higher ground

    Much of Subaru’s modern day success in America can be attributed to one car: the Outback. Born in 1994 as a response to the growing popularity of SUVs, the Outback established a winning formula of combining a high-riding suspension, butch body cladding and big round fog lights to its comfortable, no-nonsense Legacy wagon. It is the kind of unique product that only a quirky company like Subaru could build, and was one that kept Subaru from slipping into ubiquity even as traditional SUVs and crossovers have taken over the world.
