The complex, part of the continuous necklace of activities surrounding Marina Bay, forms a gateway to the city.

Marina Bay Sands, located on the Marina Bay waterfront, is a mixed-use integrated resort. The complex is organized around principal axes that extend into the surrounding urban fabric. Both the north – south promenade and the grand arcade traverse the entire project and are crossed by two east – west spines (view corridors), which connect the planned Gardens by the Bay, the local Metro station, Bayfront Avenue and the waterfront.

Marina Bay Sands integrates a diverse program including an event plaza, three 55-story hotel towers containing 1000 rooms each, a hotel sky garden bridging across the tops of the towers, offering 360-degree views of the city, bay and sea, accommodating outdoor amenities for the hotel including jogging paths, swimming pools, spas and gardens.

Seen from ships anchored at sea, the two windows created by the towers and Hotel Sky Park frame the vistas towards downtown Singapore.

Viewed from this vantage point, the project’s foreground, composed of the ArtScience Museum, the promenade and undulating roof structures, serves as a base from which the hotel towers rise, curving skyward.

Also included in the project is a state-of-the art convention center, two theaters seating 2,200 and 1,800, a casino, and a garage for 4,000 cars.
