The Ministry of National Development (MND) and the Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) have awarded the design consultancy tender for the redevelopment of The Float @ Marina Bay to the consultant team led by WOHA Architects Pte Ltd.
In 2017, it was announced that The Float @ Marina Bay will be redeveloped into a permanent space that is envisioned to be a unique venue to stage large-scale national and community events such as the National Day Parade, River Hongbao, and the Marina Bay Singapore Countdown, as well as to provide spaces within Marina Bay for the public to enjoy community and recreational activities.
Creating a liveable and people-centred city for all Singaporeans is a key part of Singapore's long-term urban development plans. In this regard, the redevelopment of The Float @ Marina Bay remains a part of these plans to enhance the vibrancy of the city centre and to create public spaces where the community can come together.
Following the design consultancy tender which was held from May 2019 to July 2020 (see Annex for details), WOHA Architects Pte Ltd will act as the Principal Consultant and lead the project team to develop and implement the design for the redevelopment.
The redevelopment works are scheduled to start in March 2022 and completed by end 2025. However, given the impact of COVID-19, the project scope and timeline may be adjusted. More details on the project will be shared with the public when ready.
