Singapore’s first eco-business park will have a new S$90 million building called CleanTech One.
The building is the first structure for the CleanTech Park, and is due to be completed in December next year.
JTC Corporation, the industrial landlord, announced this at a news conference on Monday.
The two towers of the building have been designed with green sustainable features, including sky trellises that allow natural daylight into the buildings.
CleanTech One is on a 1.5 hectare site next to the Nanyang Technological University.
Building consultancy Surbana said it maximised the use of land and kept the layout naturally ventilated.
CleanTech One will house about 50 companies with green sustainability plans, including anchor tenant, Nanyang Technological University.
The CleanTech Park will be developed in three phases over 20 years.
Tang Wai Yee, director, Aerospace, Marine & CleanTech Cluster, JTC, said: “We hope to develop a very green CleanTech One, but in a practical and a cost-effective manner.
“And if this is successful, we will replicate the solution in the rest of the CleanTech Park and we will share this with the rest of Singapore and possibly in the region.
“CleanTech One will also be a test bed for urban solutions and sustainable development in the tropics. Hopefully, one day, new urban solutions, clean technologies will be discovered, developed or commercialised in CleanTech One.”
