Midtown Modern – One of the major transformations unveiled in the URA Master Plan 2019 is the rejuvenation of the Singapore downtown area which includes Marina South, Rochor, Ophir, and Bugis area.
Riding on the wave of transformation of the central area in Singapore, GuocoLand has taken on the role of the master developer in rejuvenating the Beach Road-Bugis area with 2 major developments, Guoco Midtown and Midtown Modern. Being a successful pioneer in developing Guoco Tower, an unmatched embodiment of a vertical city that comprises a mix of commercial, residential, retail, hotel, and urban parks, GuocoLand continues to bring innovative transformation over the landscape of prime central areas of Singapore.
Launched in April 2019, the first phase of GuocoLand’s grand plan is to make Midtown Modern a part of Guoco Midtown, a $2.4 billion mega mixed-use development set to complete in 2022. Located at the site of the former Beach Road Police Station, Guoco Midtown spans across a gross floor area of almost 1 million sq ft. featuring a 30-story office tower, a residential development Midtown Bay of 219-units of one- to three-bedroom layouts, 2 retail clusters, food and beverage stores, entertainment venues and public spaces. In addition, a new pedestrian network will provide convenient access from Guoco Midtown to Bugis MRT, City Hall, and Marina Centre area making it an attractive location to live, work and entertain.
Following the launch of Guoco Midtown in 2019, GuocoLand unveiled the second phase of their grand plan for the Beach Road – Bugis district in August 2020 with Guoco Midtown Modern. Seated on a residential site at Tan Quee Lan Street with a land area of 124,122 sq ft, this beautiful development features two 30-story residential towers, with over 500 luxury apartments comprising one- to four-bedroom layouts catering to singles, couples, and families. Through an underground passage, Guoco Midtown will be linked and together both sites will have a combined footprint of 3.2ha and a maximum gross floor area of 1.5m sq ft.
Compared to Midtown Bay, Midtown Modern focuses on wellness and provides ample green spaces and a wide range of recreational facilities for its residents to relax and bond with loved ones. Similar to Martin Modern which is developed based on the concept of living in a botanical garden, it carries the name “Modern” to signify the similar theme of living in the midst of beautiful nature and lush greenery.
Under URA Masterplan, the Bugis-Bras Basah area around Midtown Modern will be developed into an Arts Belt where the whole area will be transformed to feature staging grounds and spaces for arts and cultural events!
