Guoco Midtown will have many amenities catering to the well-being of its office tenants. Workers can take a break from work at the
sky garden on level 7 or go for a swim in the 40 metre swimming pool, jog along the circuit, or work out at the outdoor gym. For a bit of peace and quiet, they can also retreat to the event plaza, rest pods and snooze areas. These dedicated recreational areas allow office tenants to ‘relax &
rejuvenate’ even while at work. This is part of Guoco Midtown’s attempt to respond to the growing integration of work and play. Tenants can join in fitness programmes like Zumba and Body Combat, just like the programmes at Guoco Tower, which have been well received by tenants and public.

 

Project details :
Guoco Midtown will be the game changer, the final piece of jigsaw that completes the transformation of the area, connecting the three major office micro-markets of City Hall, Marina Centre and Bugis.

The name Guoco Midtown represents GuocoLand’s vision for the area to be like the Midtown areas in many capital cities around the world where there is an exciting mix of shopping, culture, entertainment, amenities and prime corporate offices. Based on key trends anticipated, Guoco Midtown has been designed with the present and future needs of the user in mind, especially for those who spend a large part of their day in the office tower but not necessarily at their desks.

In line with GuocoLand’s vision of breathing new life into the district, Guoco Midtown is poised to become the new social heart for the Beach Road and Bugis area. It will foster community street life by providing a series of community spaces that can adapt and cater to different public activities
and events.

Although Guoco Midtown is a mega mixed-development, it is unlike most such developments that often comprise podium blocks. Instead, street level buildings and public spaces have been designed to the human scale. Besides conserving the three-storey former Beach Road Police
Station, the design also draws inspiration from the shophouse districts across Beach Road; an internal street - called Seawater Street - has been created, flanked by public spaces and low-rise retail and restaurants.

All ground floor restaurants will have alfresco dining spilling into the two large sheltered public spaces called the City Room and the Market Place. Seawater Street can also be closed to vehicles during the weekends so that it can link up all the various public spaces to become a large event
space to host more than 2,000 people.

In fact, the whole development comprises 10 different plazas and gardens on levels 1, 2, 3, 7, 15 and 30; six of which are open to the public. Altogether, they form more than 170,000 sq ft of landscape and public spaces, and more than 34,000 sq ft of vertical greenery. The plazas and
gardens provide spaces for exercise, special events and intimate areas for unhurried and meaningful human interaction.
