Las Vegas Sands has entered into a development agreement with the Singapore government to expand Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. The company will immediately begin work on the new project located adjacent to the existing Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort.
The key elements of the development will be a 15,000-seat arena, a luxury hotel tower and additional MICE (Meeting, Incentive, Convention and Exhibition) space.
The new hotel tower, which will have approximately 1,000 all-suite rooms, will also include a sky roof with a swimming pool and a restaurant. The tower will have an atrium and terraces, along with food and beverage offerings and a combination of meeting rooms, ballrooms and exhibition halls. Moshe Safdie, who designed the original property, Aedas and Gensler are planning to be part of the team responsible for the design elements of this new building.
Since opening in 2010, Marina Bay Sands has attracted more than 330 million visitors. The property has brought over 700 new MICE events to Singapore since opening and hosted 3,680 events at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre in 2018 alone.
The current total projected budget for the expansion is approximately $3.3 billion (S$4.5 billion) and a timeline for its completion is not yet available.
