Singapore’s premier luxury residential development, Marina Bay Suites, has won the Silver Award in the Residential (High Rise) category at the highly acclaimed FIABCI Prix d’Excellence Awards 2015.
“The consortium behind Marina Bay Suites – Cheung Kong (Holdings), Hongkong Land and Keppel Land – is delighted to achieve this significant award and the international recognition it garners for Singapore. This also cements Marina Bay Suites’ status as one of the most iconic luxury residential developments in Marina Bay,” said Mr Warren Bishop, CEO of Raffles Quay Asset Management Pte Ltd (RQAM), representing the consortium.
“The award will spur us at RQAM in our commitment to high standards of excellence in all our projects, to meet and even surpass the expectations of our tenants and homeowners.”
Marina Bay Suites’ previous win at the FIABCI Singapore Property Awards 2014 for the Residential (High Rise) category qualified the development to participate at the international FIABCI Prix d’Excellence Awards 2015.
The FIABCI Prix d’Excellence award is widely regarded as one of the most prestigious in international real estate. The award recognises Marina Bay Suites for its excellence in real estate disciplines such as architecture and design, development and construction, financial and marketing, environmental impact, as well as contribution to the community.
Designed by the renowned Kohn Pederson Fox Associates, the 66-storey development’s prevalent water theme featured sculpted balconies creating a textured building facade that mirrors the rippling of water. Embodying the spirit of ‘garden city by the bay’, Marina Bay Suites ensured efficient use of land space and minimised the environmental and social impact during the construction process. Natural materials were also incorporated into the design and lush greenery is integrated within the development.
With a breath-taking view of the bay, the Marina Bay Suites highlights the ‘live’ component of the work-live-play concept of Marina Bay Financial Centre (MBFC) where it offers an exclusive waterfront lifestyle with close proximity to the business district and world-class attractions. Marina Bay Suites is the second residential development under MBFC.
In 2012, Marina Bay Residences won the Runner-Up award in the Residential (High Rise) category at the FIABCI Prix d’Excellence Awards 2012, while MBFC (Phase 1) clinched the top award for the Office category.
Other recent awards conferred to Marina Bay Suites include the Building and Construction Authority of Singapore’s Design and Engineering Safety Excellence Award 2015 in the Residential category. The award recognises efforts in overcoming challenges to achieve safety and excellence in design and engineering works, and accords recognition to construction projects that have demonstrated the highest standards of construction excellence in Singapore.
