Seamlessly extending Singapore's downtown district to the water's edge, AECOM's conceptual development framework plan will transform the 698-hectare (1725-acre) Marina Bay and Greater Southern Waterfront into the nation's key focus of development for the next decade and further support the area's continuing growth as a major business and financial hub in Asia.
AECOM was selected by the Urban Redevelopment Authority to provide planning and design services that integrated sustainable design and engineering solutions.
“The long-term conceptual master plan includes benefits for the city such as a series of unique waterfront districts, promoting a network of walkable public space and a waterfront pathway for walking and cycling, as well as establishing a new reservoir for rainwater harvesting along with a human-scale canal area,” said Scott Dunn, AECOM director of development, vice president, Southeast Asia.
