Shake Shack has recently announced the location of their new branch at Liat Towers.
Shake Shack is a modern day “roadside” burger stand known for their delicious burgers, chicken, hot dogs, frozen custard, beer, wine and more.
Shake Shack sprouted from a hot dog cart in Manhattan’s Madison Square Park created by Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group (USHG) to support the Madison Square Park Conservancy’s first art installation. The cart was quite the success, with lines snaking out daily for three summers.
In 2004 USHG won the bid to open a permanent kiosk in the Park: Shake Shack was born. This modern day “roadside” burger stand serves up the most delicious burgers, hot dogs, frozen custard, shakes, beer, wine and more. An instant neighborhood fixture, Shake Shack welcomed people from all over the city, country and world who gathered together to enjoy fresh, simple, high-quality versions of the classics in a majestic setting.
The submission by Kengo Kuma & Associates in collaboration with K2LD Architects has been selected as the winner of the international architectural design competition for the Founders’ Memorial. The competition, launched in January 2019, attracted a strong response of 193 submissions from local and foreign firms. From these, five designs were shortlisted by the Jury Panel.
The Jury Panel chose the winning design by Kengo Kuma & Associates and K2LD Architects as it stood out as a site-specific design that best encapsulates the aspirations of the design brief. Its organic form creates a welcome counterpoint to the domes of Gardens by the Bay. It represents a bold and imaginative new type of memorial which rises out of the landscape. Conceptually different from the other shortlisted designs, it emphasises Singapore as a “City in a Garden” and allows for future growth. More than a singular building, it is a sustainable, environmentally progressive reflection of the ideals of Singapore. In addition, the design has great potential to provide multi-layered experiences for all visitors in its blending of external and internal spaces.
Following the announcement of the winning design, Kengo Kuma & Associates and K2LD Architects will be commissioned to develop the design of the Founders’ Memorial with the National Heritage Board and Gardens by the Bay. The construction works for the memorial are expected to commence in 2022, and the Founders’ Memorial is expected to be completed by 2027. Public will continue to be consulted in the development of the detailed building design and the formulation of the content and programming concepts over the next few years.
The Founders’ Memorial will commemorate the values and ideals exemplified by the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew and Singapore’s first generation leaders, as well as other key personalities who played important roles in Singapore’s path to independence, and in the early years of Singapore’s nation-building process. The Memorial’s narrative will take a values-driven approach as guided by its concept, which was derived from the Founders’ Memorial Committee’s engagement with Singaporeans in 2015 – 2017.
Envisioned as an integrated gallery and gardens experience at the Bay East Garden, the Memorial aims to both commemorate how independent Singapore came to be, and inspire Singaporeans to commit themselves to contribute towards the nation’s future.
The Memorial is currently in its second stage of development, and the Committee will continue to engage Singaporeans to gather their views on its design. More information on the Founders’ Memorial is available at foundersmemorial.sg.

Sembcorp Industries (Sembcorp) made an announcement that it has, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Sembcorp Solar Singapore, been named as the preferred bidder to build a 60 megawatt-peak (MWp) floating solar photovoltaic (PV) system on Tengeh Reservoir. When completed in 2021, it will be one of the world’s largest single floating solar PV systems.
When completed in 2021, the solar farm could generate enough energy to power around 16,000 four-room HDB flats, and is expected to reduce carbon emissions by around 32 kilotonnes per year, or the equivalent of removing 7,000 cars off Singapore's roads.
With this project, Sembcorp will be one of the largest renewable energy players in Singapore with approximately 240MWp of solar capacity in the country. Moving ahead with the development of a floating solar farm underscores Sembcorp’s commitment to support Singapore’s move towards achieving its new solar target of at least 2 gigawatt-peak (GWp) by 2030.
Sembcorp Solar Singapore will proceed to execute the requisite project agreements, and work towards satisfaction of the conditions precedents set out in PUB’s request for proposal.

The National Parks Board (NParks) has opened the 5.4-hectare Cyclist Park, a new recreational space at East Coast Park. Featuring a longer view corridor of the marina vista, Cyclist Park boasts two new cycling circuits targeted at learners and experienced cyclists, a nature playgarden and F&B and retail outlets for families.
Located at Area D of East Coast Park, at the previous site of Goldkist Chalets, Cyclist Park is an active node, complementing the tranquillity of the nearby Raintree Cove that opened earlier this year. A one-stop hub for cyclists, visitors can practise cycling techniques at the two cycling circuits, as well as purchase and repair bicycles. It is also a stop along the Round Island Route (RIR).
The two circuits - the Learner Circuit and Advanced Circuit - are conducive spaces for cyclists to hone their skills. Beginners can attempt the 280-metre long Learner Circuit, where gentle slopes, large expanse of flat areas, and a mini BMX adventure trail help improve balance and stamina. The 500-metre long Advanced Circuit, with its undulating tracks, sharp turns, gradual granite steps and narrow bridge, provides a fun challenge for more experienced cyclists.
Open plazas with multiple entry points have replaced what was once the gated Goldkist Chalets and visitors can now enjoy unobstructed views of the sea. Visitors who seek a more tranquil experience can soak in the coastal ambience while lounging on terrazzo benches under the shelter of ketapang (Terminalia catappa L.) and handkerchief trees (Maniltoa browneoides). There are also two F&Bs, one convenience retail store and a bicycle retail shop that also run bicycle related workshops as well as repair services.
Families with children can enjoy a new nature playgarden at East Coast Park within the Cyclist Park. The playgarden uses natural materials such as upcycled wood to create curated play features for children to engage in spontaneous play amid nature. Young ones can develop a sense of discovery and train their balance at the simple obstacle course, and older children can try their hand at the 1.5-metre tall mini climbing wall installed with grips, that was fashioned from a log.
The opening of Cyclist Park marks the completion of the second of three phases in the rejuvenation of East Coast Park, which aims to create more open spaces and vistas of the sea, improve accessibility and enhance amenities. This follows the successful reopening of Raintree Cove earlier this year. The enhancement will be completed in 2020 with the opening of Big Splash.
Cyclist Park is located at East Coast Park Area D and is accessible via East Coast Park Service Road, via the underpass linking Mandarin Gardens to D3 Carpark and via Siglap Park Connector. The nearest bus stop is 90 metres away and is served by bus number 401.
Qantas has officially opened its newest First Lounge, a luxury space spread over 1,000 sqm at Singapore’s Changi Airport.
The new First Lounge will operate in tandem alongside the airline’s existing International Business Lounge, providing capacity for 240 customers and a bespoke offering for Qantas’ First Class passengers and top tier frequent flyers.
The new build was designed by Australian designer David Caon in collaboration with Kelvin Ho of architecture and design firm Akin Atelie and features a number of Singaporean influences across the look and feel of the lounge as well as the food and beverage offering.
Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce said the opening of the new lounge is a reflection of the airline’s extensive premium investment in the region.
“Since our A380 flights have returned to Singapore, we’ve seen an increase in demand for premium travel which has also translated to an increase in the number of travellers enjoying our lounge hospitality.
“This is our fourth Qantas First Lounge, and each time we build an entire new lounge facility from scratch, we speak to our frequent flyers to get a better understanding of how customers like to spend their time in the lounge and tailor it accordingly. Our customers told us their key priorities when travelling through or from Singapore is space to relax and do some last-minute work, a quick shower, and a meal before departure so they can maximise their sleep onboard.”
An open kitchen will serve up a Rockpool a la carte seasonal menu designed with Singapore’s vibrant dining culture in mind.
The lounge also features a cocktail bar with lounge seating, serving French champagne, seasonal spritzes, unique cocktails inspired by Singapore, like a Calamansi Mojito – made from the local Calamansi fruit, Singaporean and Australian beer – and a variety of Australian wine. View Singapore First Lounge Menu here.
Non-alcoholic healthy beverages such as kefir and kombucha, barley water and a Rockpool ‘House Lemonade’ are available, along with all day barista service with Vittoria coffee and a selection of savoury bar snacks and fruit.
Wellness continues to be a major inspiration and the new Qantas First Lounge brings the outside in. Live greenery features throughout the lounge to soften the space and bolster the atmosphere, while the use of natural materials and colour palettes is designed to help relax customers.
A unique faux ‘skylight’ in the shower suites and lounge area will replicate natural daylight and help adjust the body clock as customers transition through multiple time zones.
Business travellers have the choice to work in an open, communal setting or individual lounge chairs with high dividers. USB and charging ports are located throughout the lounge, with wireless printing, Wi-Fi and TV screens for customers to stay charged and connected.
The new premium space is Qantas’ fourth First Lounge across its global network, joining Sydney, Melbourne, and Los Angeles. The opening is part of the multi-million-dollar investment for customers on its Singapore services and complements the expanded Qantas International Business lounge at Changi, which combined now offers seating for more than 800 customers.
By 2023, national servicemen will be able to access all their National Service (NS)- and training-related activities in a one-stop centre.
The NS Hub just marked the start of construction in a groundbreaking ceremony officiated by Defence Minister Dr Ng Eng Hen recently.
With the NS Hub, national servicemen will no longer have to report to various camps across Singapore for different NS services.
The new NS Hub will house the Central Manpower Base (CMPB), Military Medicine Institute (MMI) and a new Fitness Conditioning Centre (FCC) to meet all the services that pre-enlistees and Operationally Ready National Servicemen (NSmen) need.
It will even include an e-Mart for NSmen to stock up on their combat boots and admin t-shirts!
Currently, pre-enlistees attend medical screening at CMPB at Depot Road, and head to MMI in Kent Ridge for other specialist medical services. NSmen take their Individual Physical Proficiency Tests (IPPTs) at various locations such as Maju Camp and Bedok Camp.
Once complete, the NS Hub will be directly accessible via an overhead bridge from Cashew MRT Station along Upper Bukit Timah Road.
Gone are the long queues to "book in", as national servicemen visiting the NS Hub will be able to register themselves at e-Kiosks equipped with facial recognition technology. They will also be able to perform digital transactions through the NS Hub visitor mobile app and receive personalised responses about their appointments. Such technology is expected to reduce the overall waiting time for medical screenings by 30 per cent!
IPPT will be made more convenient for servicemen. Without having to "book in" to camp, servicemen will be able to do automated In-Processing at the NS Hub’s FCC. They can then simply walk up to the gym for their IPPT Preparatory Training or head to the sheltered running track to take their IPPT. Facing the Rail Corridor, the FCC will be the Singapore Armed Forces’ first purpose-built, all-weather facility for IPPT and fitness training.
Not unlike SAFRA Clubhouses, the NS Hub may well become a go-to spot for national servicemen to relax with their family and friends. The hub will feature a wide range of amenities that are open to the public – these include a food court, a childcare center and an outdoor community area with a running track and football field. For those into live entertainment, the NS Hub will also house the Power 98 Love Songs and 88.3JIA radio stations where visitors can catch their favourite radio DJs live on air. There will also be studios for the public to catch performances.
Visitors to the new NS Hub will be glad to know that the building will make use of renewable energy – energy generated from its solar panels can power more than 110 4-room HDB units a year! The building will also adopt energy-saving solutions such as the use of natural ventilation and solar shades for cooling. The NS Hub will make use of rainwater harvesting to collect non-potable water for irrigation and other purposes.
Coming to you in 2021, the new HomeTeamNS Bedok Clubhouse will be the first clubhouse to be nestled within Bedok Reservoir Park.

HomeTeamNS is a non-profit Association set up to recognise the invaluable contributions of the Singapore Police Force (SPF) and Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) NSmen to the safety and security of the nation. Not just a regular recreation club, they seek to create a shared environment for NSmen from both forces to foster better relations while working together.
The HomeTeamNS Bedok Clubhouse is set to have features and facilities like Concept Villas, Indoor Water Adventure, thoughfully designed mancaves and more.
Their Concept Vilas, the first of their kind in Singapore, will be set on a hill slope, within forested vegetation and amidst a canopy of trees, and offer park and reservoir views.
The Indoor Water Adventure will feature several firsts for Singapore: the longest indoor water slide; the first water slide tunnel decorated with LED rainbows, dot patterns and shooting lights; and the first wet obstacle rope course.
The mancaves will be similar to those at their Khatib Clubhouse, the mancaves at Bedok Clubhouse will allow for NSmen to gather in comfortable hangout spaces.

Gardens by the Bay is at heart a People’s Garden for all Singaporeans. Bayfront Plaza is part of Gardens by the Bay’s push to provide more opportunities for all Singaporeans to enjoy the Gardens in the years to come. The amenities offered at Bayfront Plaza add to the 95 per cent of Gardens by the Bay that is non-ticketed.
CEO of Gardens by the Bay Mr Felix Loh said, “Since we began, Gardens by the Bay’s visitorship has surpassed expectations, and the success of the Gardens allows us to give back to the community. We hope to do this by establishing more beautiful non-ticketed spaces and curating myriad events and programmes without admission charges for Singaporeans from all walks of life to gather and enjoy themselves amidst nature.”
Since Gardens by the Bay opened in 2012, total visitorship to date has exceeded 50 million. Last year alone, the Gardens received more than 12 million visitors.
Bayfront Plaza is the newest non-ticketed space designed for the community, after the Japanese-themed garden Serene Garden opened in November last year.
It sits on the site previously occupied by the Future of Us exhibition that was part of the SG50 celebrations in 2015. The iconic lattice structure that was part of the exhibition has been retained and integrated into the design of Bayfront Plaza.
At Bayfront Plaza, the public can look forward to the Bayfront Pop-up Market every weekend featuring about 30 stalls selling a variety of merchandise. In line with Gardens by the Bay’s community focus, the Bayfront Pop-up Market provides a platform for social enterprises to showcase their products, with a third of the stalls intended to be run by social enterprises.
To encourage ground-up efforts among organisations to bring the community together, the indoor and outdoor spaces are available rent-free for community-focused events.
Aside from Bayfront Plaza, works have also started on the building of another non-ticketed green space called Active Garden. This is an activity area for seniors, which also aims to encourage inter-generational bonding. Active Garden is expected to be ready in early 2020.
The National Parks Board (NParks) has commenced works on the new Bukit Gombak Park. Located at Bukit Batok Batok West Avenue 5, opposite Bukit Batok Driving Centre, the 4.8 ha park will feature a hill trek, a nature playgarden and other recreational facilities amidst nature and lush greenery to serve the different needs of residents. The park is scheduled to be opened in early 2020.
In planning for the new park, NParks engaged residents to gather feedback on features they would like to have in the park. In response to the feedback received, the new park will feature a Nature Area and an Active Area to meet the diverse recreational needs of the community.
Located on a hill, the Nature Area will allow park goers to appreciate nature up close. The main feature of this area is an inclined looped 400m hill trek modelled after the trails in Bukit Timah. Besides alleviating visitorship pressure on the nearby Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, the hill trek will help residents to stay healthy in nature.
NParks, together with the community, will be planting more than 2000 trees comprising some 16 species of trees, such as the critically endangered Yellow Flame (Peltophorum pterocarpum), and others like Belinjau (Gnetum gnemon) and Pink Mempat (Cratoxylum formosum) trees.
The Active Area will feature an open lawn for events, an outdoor fitness area, a community garden, a F&B outlet and public toilets. The existing basketball court next to Block 394 will also be incorporated as part of the park.
Other features at the Bukit Gombak Park will include a biophilic playgarden which will encourage children to play amid nature. A slide will be integrated into the natural sloped terrain and there will be nature-inspired play equipment, such as balancing beams set amongst trees and shrubs.
The park will also include a 480 sqm dog run, the first in the Bukit Gombak area. It will be sited on a flat terrain for dogs to run without leash, with benches for dog owners to rest.
As part of efforts to cater to the growing needs of residents and towns, the upgraded Choa Chu Kang Sport Centre will be ready in phases from 2020.
The centre will include a renovated swimming complex with water slides, a sheltered training pool and new water play equipment. Plus it will also be home to a bigger gym and dance studio, an air-conditioned sports hall, and a new active health lab by 2021.
This year, Singaporeans can also look forward to the opening of 52 new indoor school sports halls, 32 new free-to-play school fields as well as two new play fields in Jurong Lake Gardens and Yan Kit.

All activities will take place under the guidance of experienced staff, many of which are recognized coaches, and are safely away from rain, pollution, high UV or bugs and mosquitos all year round.
Family is at the heart of the SuperPark story. Taneli Sutinen, a Finnish businessman, was sitting in a café with a newspaper one day when his four-year-old daughter grabbed him by the arm and insisted that he come play with her. Tangled among the child-sized tunnels and slides, he had a light-bulb moment: why not create an activity park where children and adults could play side-by-side easily. The Superparking lifestyle was born.
The first SuperPark opened in Vuokatti, Finland in 2012, and was soon followed by 12 more sites in the Nordic country. Now, the ‘Superparking lifestyle’ is going global. SuperPark Singapore marks the continuation of an international expansion wave that includes Hong Kong, China, Sweden and France. The dream is to see hundreds, if not thousands, of SuperParks all over the globe, bringing families together through the power of joyful play.

Located 20 minutes away from Singapore’s bustling centre, the city-state’s newest residential development, Sky Habitat, is nearing its completion. Designed by the architect behind the famed Marina Bay Sands resort, Noshe Saddie, the complex is 38-stories high.
Its tall stature is representative of the high-density, high-rise housing that remains in great demand across many Asian cities. The residential complex consists of two tower blocks which are connected at the base and by three bridges at its upper levels. Two of the bridges have landscaped circulation routes, while the third upper bridge has an elevated swimming pool from which one can see the city’s rapidly developing skyline.
Just like its orthodox counterparts, the project includes common amenities at ground level in the form of outdoor spaces and communal gardens. Above its sunken parking podium, the site has been developed to contain lush gardens, outdoor event rooms, swimming pools and walking paths.
The structure has been rationalised to maximise air movement in the region’s tropical climate, thus allowing for cross-ventilation and multiple exposures in every unit. Additionally, many of Sky Habitat’s apartments boast of individual balconies, roof terraces and gardens.
The complex also mimics a village-like clustering of residential units, which one can see in hillside developments. Its development as a result can be seen as an integration of architecture and plant life into a singular experience.
