SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - IOI Properties Group has topped out IOI Central Boulevard Towers, its Grade-A office development in Marina Bay. A topping-out ceremony was held on Aug 28 for the development, which is expected to receive its temporary occupation permit in 1Q2024.
Comprising two office towers of 16 and 48 storeys sitting on top of a seven-storey podium, the development will have 1.26 million sq ft of office space and 30,000 sq ft of retail, food and beverage spaces. To date, about 40% of IOI Central Boulevard Towers’ net lettable area has been committed, with another 20% in advanced stages of negotiation.
“IOI Central Boulevard Towers stand tall as a spectacular new architectural masterpiece in Singapore’s CBD,” says Lee Yeow Seng, CEO of IOI Properties Group. “This is underpinned by an integrated, connected and sustainable workplace ecosystem harnessing the most leading-edge technologies.”
The development has direct access to Downtown MRT Station, along with sheltered routes to Marina Bay, Raffles Place and Shenton Way MRT Stations. There will also be bridges linking the project to One Raffles Quay and Asia Square.
Other features include a 60,000 sq ft sky park dubbed Central Green that houses a 200m jogging track, end-of-trip facilities and a childcare centre. The building incorporates sustainable elements such as energy-efficient lifts and a double-glazed facade. IOI Central Boulevard Towers has been certified Green Mark Platinum under the Building & Construction Authority’s Green Mark Scheme, its green building rating system.
Karen Lau, head of business at IOI Properties Singapore, says the development has seen strong interest from prospective tenants. “Apart from securing commitments from global business leaders in technology and finance, we have also observed significant interest from players in asset management, fast-moving consumer goods, legal and other sectors,” she notes.
