With the completion of the Marina One project, Instagrammers now have even less of an excuse to blame Singapore’s lack of scenery for their ugly photos.

The multi-purpose complex comprises of two office buildings and two residential blocks that include penthouses.

Located in the Marina Bay financial district, the project amounts to 400,000 square meters in total, or about 74 football fields.

Named “Green Heart”, the central space houses over 350 different types of trees and plants.

There’s also retail outlets, restaurants and cafes, a fitness club, a pool, a food court, and event spaces:

And already, plenty of Instagrammers have made their way there:

More amazing images of "Marina One" in Singapore by Ingenhoven Architects. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This innovative project brings to life Singapore's "City in a Garden" concept, containing a lush garden ecosystem within the central core of the surrounding towers. This "Green Heart" provides a sanctuary of green in which to escape the hustle and bustle of the surrounding city life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ If I could live anywhere in the world, this would make it in my top five for sure. This mega block development brings the tropical rainforest inside a series of curvaceous towers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ My favorite part…besides the awesome architecture of course? Clearly the "Green Heart" a central public core reminiscent of a lush forest. This green oasis of tropical plants and water is surely one of the highlights to calling this home. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *Be sure to check out my previous post showing an expanded view of the "Green Heart". ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #marinaone #singapore #marinasouth #travel #thegoodlife #instagood #architecture #architectureisawesome #instapic #instaphoto #photooftheday #urbandevelopment #greenisgood #beautiful #awesome #amazing #urbanlife #greencitylife #urbanredevelopment #vibrant #growth #cityinagarden #sanctuary #oasis #luxurylifestyle #luxurylife #luxury #luxuryhomes #luxuryrealestate
