SINGAPORE (Apr 22): GuocoLand has unveiled the design of Guoco Midtown, the 950,600 sf mega mixed-use development at Beach Road.

Slated for completion in the first half of 2022, Guoco Midtown will feature a 770,000 sf, 30-storey Grade A office tower with central core office floor plate and 3.3m-high ceiling.

Panoramic views of the city, Kallang Basin and Marina Bay can be viewed through the clear glass panels of the 1.8m-wide floor-to-ceiling windows.

Guoco Midtown’s underground, ground level and elevated pedestrian network will connect three districts near the area – namely City Hall, Bugis and Marina Centre.

In addition, the whole development comprises 10 different plazas and gardens on levels 1, 2, 3, 7, 15 and 30; six of which are open to the public.

Altogether, they form more than 170,000 sf of landscape and public spaces, and more than 34,000 sf of vertical greenery providing spaces for exercise, special events and meetups.

All ground floor restaurants will have alfresco dining spilling into the two large sheltered public spaces called the City Room and the Market Place.

The development will be served by four MRT lines - the East-West, Downtown, North-South and Circle lines - plus a direct underground link to the Bugis MRT interchange station

Besides conserving the three-storey former Beach Road Police Station, Guoco Midtown will have internal street -- called Seawater Street -- flanked by public spaces and low-rise retail options and restaurants.

GuocoLand says more details of the residential component of Midtown Bay offering more than 200 exclusive units, will be announced in the second half of 2019.

Shares in GuocoLand closed 1 cent lower at $1.97 on Monday.
