We are shaping our future by diversifying into commercial, retail and residential developments, in addition to our hospitality excellence.
OUE Bayfront and Adjoining OUE Tower and OUE Link
Prominently situated along the shoreline of Collyer Quay, OUE’s flagship commercial property − OUE Bayfront – is a Grade-A 18-storey office building overlooking the spectacular Marina Bay. It is linked via an aerial mall OUE Link and an underpass to Raffles Place MRT station which is just a 5-minute walk away.
Owing to its vantage location between the new Marina Bay downtown and the Raffles Place financial hub, OUE Bayfront has drawn a notable tenant base comprising multinational companies such as Allen & Overy LLP, Bain & Company SE Asia, Inc., Citrix Systems Singapore Pte Ltd, Hogan Lovells International LLP, Merrill Lynch International Bank Limited (Merchant Bank), Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (PUBL), Singapore Branch, Union Bancaire Privee (Singapore) Ltd, amongst others.
Completed in January 2011, OUE Bayfront has a total gross floor area of 503,502 sq ft, with a net lettable area of about 402,039 sq ft. As at 31 December 2012, it has garnered a committed occupancy rate of 93.3% and continues to attract strong interest from prospective tenants.
Adjoining OUE Bayfront, OUE Tower has a net lettable area of 11,800 sq ft spread over two levels. It is currently occupied by Tung Lok Group’s Tóng Lè Private Dining, offering Chinese fine dining. Complementing the luxurious dining ambience, a section of the restaurant is dedicated to a special collaboration with SHINJI By Kanesaka – a premium Japanese restaurant by Chef Shinji Kanesaka of the 2-Michelin-starred Sushi Kanesaka in Tokyo, Japan. This exclusive “restaurant-within-a-restaurant” concept allows diners to enjoy the best of both Chinese and Japanese cuisines, whilst enjoying the splendid waterfront views of the Marina Bay.
OUE Link connects the Raffles Place MRT station and the new Marina Bay financial district. The aerial mall linkway, with a net lettable area of 2,854 sq ft, is fully leased to an exciting line-up of retail and food and beverage options.
Formerly known as DBS Building Towers One and Two, OUE Downtown is a landmark situated along the financial artery of Singapore in between Raffles Place and Tanjong Pagar. The 49-storey OUE Downtown 1 and 37-storey OUE Downtown 2 have a combined total gross floor area of about 1.24 million sq ft and a net lettable area of about 867,000 sq ft. These prime office assets continue to see strong interest from prospective tenants and have impressive tenant base that includes Aviva Ltd, Daiwa Capital Markets Singapore Limited, Deloitte & Touche LLP, Global Blue Singapore Pte Ltd.
A unique feature of this development is its 262-metre wide street frontage and pedestrian walkway. To capitalise on its strategic location and leverage the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s long-term plans to develop Tanjong Pagar into a vibrant work-play-live environment, plans are underway to convert the existing podium in between the two towers into an eminently sophisticated retail space. The mall will have a wide range of retail and food and beverage options, as well as a supermarket, to cater to the needs of the rising number of residents and global business visitors in the vicinity.
One Raffles Place
One Raffles Place is strategically located in the heart of Singapore’s Central Business District and is well-served by Raffles Place MRT station. From the station, pedestrians have a direct connection to the sheltered basement of One Raffles Place.
The distinctive One Raffles Place encompasses two magnificent Grade-A office towers and a retail mall with a total lettable area of over 860,000 sq ft of office, retail and entertainment space. Tower One, a landmark 62-storey Grade-A office building, is the tallest building in Singapore at 282 metres high. The skyscraper’s tenants include leading financial, banking and other professional firms. The observation deck on the rooftop and the restaurants on 61st and 62nd levels offer panoramic views of the city and are very popular entertainment and tourism spots in Singapore.
Newly-completed Tower Two, a 38-storey Grade-A office building, has drawn keen interest from international companies and professional firms, following the success of Tower One. The new tower has a Green Mark Platinum certification for its energy efficiency and environmentally sustainable design, awarded by the Building & Construction Authority (BCA).
Tower Two is also one of only a few commercial buildings in the financial district to capitalise on both lighting and art incentives provided by Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), incorporating special lighting on its façade and showcasing artworks by worldrenowned artists Tony Cragg, Hiroshi Senju, Anna Chiara Spellini and Han Sai Por at the lobby and outdoor space.
The five-storey retail mall, which includes a basement level, is currently under refurbishment. Upon completion in early 2014, the new mall will offer almost 100,000 sq ft of unrivalled retail, dining and lifestyle space at Raffles Place.
