As a world-class integrated development where the possibilities for future of work will be expanded amidst a vibrant work-live-play vertical community, CapitaSpring has secured its first anchor office tenant; ahead of its scheduled completion in the first half of 2021. J.P. Morgan, the global banking and financial services provider, will take up close to a quarter of the 635,000 sq ft of the net lettable area at CapitaSpring. This translates to approximately 155,000 sq ft of premium office space from levels 24 to 30.

Embodying a connection with nature for urban dwellers in the heart of Singapore’s downtown core, the Green Oasis will become the central social space for placemaking and community activities as well as a city-defining architectural feature at a breathtaking 100 metres above ground.

Community events such as fitness sessions and lunchtime performances can be held at the City Room, which will blend into a 12,500 sq ft public park. Occupants can also look forward to a café, treetop cocoons, sky hammocks, meeting and activity spaces connected by a spiral stairway at the Green Oasis. CapitaSpring will also be home to Singapore’s highest urban farm and a fine-dining restaurant on the rooftop at around 280-metres-high.
Harnessing some of the latest Internet of Things and artificial intelligence technologies, robots and sensors – executives will be securely and seamlessly connected to their offices through an all-in-one lifestyle app. CapitaSpring will also allow tenants more flexibility in space planning with the option of inter-floor network connectivity, expansive column-free floor plates as well as one of the tallest floor-to-ceiling heights of 3.2 metres in the CBD. With a prime location in the downtown core, CapitaSpring will have excellent connectivity island-wide, with sheltered access to three train lines via Raffles Place MRT interchange and Telok Ayer MRT station as well as major expressways. CapitaSpring will also have a cycling path in its perimeter, 165 bicycle lots and well-equipped end-of-trip facilities, complementing the government’s strategy for a car-lite Singapore.
Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group, in collaboration with Carlo Ratti Associati, CapitaSpring will also comprise a 299-unit Citadines serviced residence managed by The Ascott Limited, ancillary retail space, as well as a food centre located on the second and third levels of the development. Stallholders from the well-loved Market Street Food Centre will return to the new food centre at CapitaSpring upon the building’s completion.
