A new choice chic shopping and dining destination enhances the vibrancy of Marina Bay Financial Centre

Singapore, 24 November 2010 – Envisioned as an exciting work-live-play integrated development, Marina Bay Financial Centre (MBFC) is set to further enhance the vibrant Marina Bay precinct with the opening of Phase One of its retail component, the Marina Bay Link Mall (MBLM).

About 55 tenants across 93,800 square feet of retail space will offer convenient lifestyle shopping, delectable dining choices, as well as convenient treats for some of Singapore’s most affluent professionals, residents and visitors in the area. Some of these tenants are either making their debut in the CBD or new to the market, well-poised to liven up the retail scene in the heart of the central business district.

Located below The Lawn@Marina Bay, the subterranean mall will feature dining outlets such as Din Tai Fung, New York eatery Madison Deli, Japanese pasta house Yomenya Goemon and Absolute Thai. For retail therapy and convenience treats, shoppers can look forward to Four Seasons Gourmet Market, Mode Hair Gallery and fashion labels Konplott (from Germany) and Adore from the U.S.

Adding to the charm and vibrancy of Marina Bay Link Mall on street level are restaurants which offer a splendid view of the Marina Bayfront and ideal for corporate dining and entertaining. These restaurants include Akari Dining & Bar, Brawn d+b by MeatWorks, Harry’s Gastro Bar, exquisite modern Chinese restaurant Paradise Pavilion and Boulevard Bayfront (on the ground floor of MBFC Tower 1) with its interactive wine bar, carpaccio and seafood offerings.

Taking dining to a new high at Marina Bay Link Mall will be LeVel 33 – the world’s highest urban craft-brewery, restaurant and lounge located at the penthouse of MBFC’s Tower 1. Covering over 6,000 square feet – including a sprawling 1,600 square feet outdoor terrace the prime locale of LeVel 33 promises a spectacular panoramic view of Marina Bay and the city skyline.

Wilson Kwong, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Raffles Quay Asset Management, the asset manager of MBFC, said: “Marina Bay Link Mall is well placed to further enhance the dining and shopping pleasures for all who work and live at MBFC, as well as nearby hotel guests and tourists to Singapore’s newest destination hub at Marina Bay. The Mall’s seamless connectivity to Raffles Place and new developments around Marina Bay help to attract additional shopper and dining traffic to the mall, enhancing its attractiveness as a retail address.”

“About 92% of Marina Bay Link Mall’s Phase One is leased, which is a testament to the Mall’s positioning as a much coveted retail address. We also have the strong support of our Tenants who have rolled out attractive retail and F&B promotions to drive awareness, traffic as well as spending at the mall. With their commitment, we are well-placed to make Marina Bay Link Mall an attractive and successful retail and dining destination in the CBD, and in the new Marina Bay,” said Rose Tong, Director of Marketing, Retail, for Raffles Quay Asset Management.

Marina Bay Link Mall will also be central to the host of exciting events and activities taking place around the 3.5km Promenade around the Marina Bay waterfront, The Promontory@Marina Bay and The Lawn@Marina Bay. These activities will generate buzz and excitement all year round, bringing locals from all corners of Singapore and tourists from the world over.

Marina Bay Link Mall represents the finishing touch to Phase One of the 3.55 hectare site where MBFC resides. Located in the heart of the new downtown at Marina Bay, the Mall is an essential component of MBFC – the single largest integrated mixed-used development in the area. Phase Two of the Mall is expected to be complete in 1Q 2012, along with the completion of MBFC Tower 3 and the Marina Bay Suites in the following year, further enhancing the vibrancy of this premium address.
