Downtown Core

The Downtown Core Planning Area is the economic and cultural heart of Singapore.

The prime office space, supported by a wide range of complementary uses and a live-in population, will contribute to the area becoming a round-the-clock vibrant commercial district.

At the southern end, adjacent to the existing city centre, sits the Marina Bay area which has since been redeveloped with excellent infrastructure and world-class cultural and entertainment facilities for quality working and living environments. The UD guidelines guide its transformation into a great place to live, work and play in, and a district that reflects Singapore's position as a leading business and financial hub.
