This week's theme is chosen by Gordon.
Singapore is such a little country yet you'll be able to find something under constructions, whether it's a small project or a mega one like the Marina Bay Sands.
Marina Bay Sands Resort and Casino
The Marina Bay Sands will be Singapore's second casino after Resorts World at Sentose ( still under construction) , being developed by one of the world's biggest gaming companies, Las Vegas Sands at Marina South in central Singapore. Completion of the Integrated Resort is expected for early 2010.
Las Vegas Sands has committed to invest S$3.85 billion in the project, not including the fixed $1.2 billion cost of the 6,000,000 square feet (560,000 m2) site itself. The total cost of the development is placed at S$8.0 billion. In addition to the casino, other key components of the plan are three hotel towers with 2,600 rooms and suites, a 200,000-square-foot (19,000 m2) arts and sciences museum and a convention centre with 1,200,000 square feet (111,000 m2) of space, capable of accommodating over 52,000 people. The resort, inspired by card decks, was designed by Moshe Safdie. The company has promised to create 10,400 jobs for the project, 75 percent of them reserved for Singaporeans.
Marina Bay Sands 26.1.09
Marina Bay Sands will feature three 55 storey hotel towers which were topped out in July 2009. The three towers will be connected with a 1 hectare sky terrace on the roof.
In front of the three towers will be a Theatre Block, a Convention and Exhibition Facilities Block, as well as the Casino Block, which will have up to 1 000 gaming tables and 1 400 slot machines. The Art-Science Museum will be constructed next to the three blocks and will have the shape of a lotus. Its roof will be retractable, providing a waterfall through the roof of collected rainwater when closed in the day and treating audiences to laser shows when opened at night. The Art-Science Museum will be ready by early-2010.
