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.

新オフィスビル&レジデンスMarina One. 金融庁も三菱東京UFJ銀行もPwCも移ってくる最先端ビルですが、早速出だしから素敵な内需な看板。Marina Stationという駅はシンガポールに存在しない。でもいいんです。この国の内需産業はこれでいい。外需王国だから、ここは。内需と外需どちらも成長できる国は今まで世界に一つもないです。しかし、ついに内需と外需が両立できる国が2018年に現れましたね。あの国です。凄いことです。 #coldstorage #opening

The complex is connected to four MRT lines (Downtown, North South, Circle, and the upcoming Thomson line) through an Underground Pedestrian Network.

Happy snapping.
