Marina Bay Sands on target to top out hotel towers next month

Marina Bay Sands integrated resort has said it is on target to top out its hotel towers early next month.

The company said the towers have passed level 50, just five floors away from the peak of 55 storeys.

Las Vega Sands’ Chairman Sheldon Adelson will attend the topping out ceremony.

The integrated resort will feature facilities like casino, convention and exhibition halls, a 2,600-room luxury hotel and an ArtScience Museum.

Marina Bay Sands said that once the development’s three hotel towers reach 55 floors, it will begin to lift and fit together the one-hectare Sands SkyPark.

SkyPark, a rooftop garden 200 metres from the ground, will offer a public observation deck with panoramic views of the city.

The US$5.4 billion Marina Bay Sands is scheduled to open by year-end.

General Manager and Vice President of Singapore Development, Marina Bay Sands, George Tanasijevich, said: “Marina Bay Sands will be a magnificent destination. Topping the hotel towers is a big step but it is just one of the significant achievements for us in the next few months. We are putting the roof on the Expo & Convention Centre and we are lining up luxury brands and cutting-edge designers for our retail stores.”
