Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands to start construction of hotel tower and 15,000-seat arena by 2025

International news
Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands has unveiled plans for a new luxury hotel tower with a sky roof and a 15,000-seater entertainment arena as part of a multi-billion-dollar expansion.

Construction on the project is set to start by July 2025, with a targeted completion of July 2029.

The expansion project is separate to a US$1.75 billion reinvestment in the existing property, which opened in 2010 at a cost of US$5.6 billion and already boasts three separate hotel towers. A refurbishment of towers 1 and 2, in addition to new dining offerings is already complete. Refurbishment work is now underway on tower 3.

Tower 4 and the new arena will once again be designed by Sadie Architects, led by Moshe Safdie, who were the architects on the existing property.

Marina Bay Sands, which is owned by parent company Las Vegas Sands, said that the expansion project, which also involves building additional meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions (MICE) space, as well as new food and beverage and nightlife offerings, would drive additional inbound travel to Singapore.
