Marina One announced on Friday that it had secured a strong line-up of anchor retail and food & beverage (F&B) brands that include Virgin Active, Cold Storage and Cookhouse by Koufu, ahead of the Singapore development’s expected issuance of its temporary occupation permit in 2017.
“Anchoring Virgin Active, Cold Storage and Cookhouse as our key retail tenants reinforces Marina One’s vision to be the choice destination to live, work and play in the heart of the Marina Bay financial district. Retailers recognise the potential of Marina One as the only premium integrated development to be completed in Marina Bay in the coming years and moved quickly to secure spaces at Marina One. Our retail strategy will continue to focus on introducing new, refreshing lifestyle and retail experiences which appeal to a sophisticated and cosmopolitan audience,” said Kemmy Tan, chief operating officer, M+S Pte Ltd.
Other tenants include Teppei Syokudo, a renowned and popular Japanese restaurant; Jewel, a “third-wave” specialist coffee house; and 4 Fingers Crispy Chicken. The Marina One store will be 4 Fingers Crispy Chicken’s first venture into the Central Business District.
M+S is owned 60:40 by Khazanah and Temasek respectively. It was set up on June 27, 2011, to develop Marina One and DUO, two integrated developments in Singapore.
