By Romesh Navaratnarajah: Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his Malaysian counterpart Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak today graced the unveiling of the design of Marina One, an integrated development in Singapore's new central business district.

Developed by M+S Pte Ltd, a 60:40 joint venture between Malaysia's Khazanah Nasional and Singapore's Temasek Holdings, the project will have a gross floor area (GFA) of 3.67 million sq ft and will comprise residential, office and retail components.

The Marina One Residences will feature 1,042 luxury residences ranging from one- to four-bedroom units and penthouses within two towers.

Meanwhile, Marina One Offices, Marina One East Tower and Marina One West Tower will generate 1.88 million sq ft of prime Grade A office space. The Heart, a retail podium spanning 140,000 sq ft will house shopping and lifestyle amenities.

Designed by renowned architect Christoph Ingenhoven, the project integrates "avant garde design with cutting edge sustainable features".Tan Sri Azman Yahya, Chairman of M+S Pte Ltd, said: "True to his design philosophy, Marina One will bring to life Singapore's 'City in a Garden' concept with a unique garden ecosystem within the development, providing a sanctuary and green space for communities amidst the hustle and bustle of the CBD."

"Marina One marks a brand new chapter in the Marina Bay Masterplan. This momentous collaboration between Malaysia and Singapore will position Marina One on an unprecedented scale on the world map as a new financial centre attracting businesses," he added.

The company had earlier overseen the successful launch of DUO, another integrated project in the Ophir-Rochor area last November. Meanwhile, the two leaders will also unveil the wellness development in Medini, Iskandar Malaysia today.

    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.

    By Narae Kim JINDO South Korea (Reuters) - More than 280 people, many of them students from the same high school, were missing after a ferry capsized off South Korea on Wednesday, in what could be the country's biggest maritime disaster in over 20 years.
