A City Of The Future
Following the success of Guoco Tower, the spotlight has now shifted to GuocoLand’s newest venture–Guoco Midtown. Guoco Midtown, located in Singapore’s Downtown Core Business Sector, mirrors the blueprint of Guoco Tower. The 3.2-hectare mixed-use integrated development will include 770,000 square foot of premium Grade A office space in its 30-story tower, as well as three retail clusters and more than 400,000 sq ft of landscape and public areas. It will also feature two luxury condominiums. The preserved historic Beach Road Police Station will also form part of this new urban community.

GuocoLand envisions this project as a “City of the Future,” featuring a harmonious balance between urban vibrancy and nature. Guoco Midtown
will include 30 landscaped gardens in the heart the city. Upon completion in 2024, this new “Midtown” neighborhood in the Beach Road-Bugis area expects to welcome over 10,000 corporate executives, residents, retailers and tourists every day.
A distinctive element of Guoco Midtown is its emphasis on “Placemaking,” a multi-faceted approach to the planning, design and management of public spaces. This concept seeks to leverage a local community’s assets, inspiration and potential to create public spaces that improve urban vitality and promote its people’s health, happiness and well-being. With over 400,000 sq ft of landscaped and public spaces, the development will facilitate social interactions and host large-scale events such as concerts, pop-up markets and mass fitness activities. Furthermore, Guoco Midtown’s luxury residences offer a novel take on urban living, replete with flexible spaces and a comprehensive suite of public and private facilities.
Future-Proof Workspace and Livingspace
Recognizing that adaptability is key in today’s volatile business landscape, Guoco Midtown will introduce an innovative concept know as Network Hub. The facility offers spaces that are flexible enough to seamlessly switch from seminars to networking events. It includes meeting rooms, town halls, training facilities, and cafe lounges. The future is hybrid. The demand for flexible workspaces will only grow as workplace dynamics evolve,” says Valerie Wong, GuocoLand’s Managing Director of Asset Management.

With 80% pre-commitments or negotiations, it promises to be an exciting and vibrant mix of finance, technology, chemicals, and consumer brands. It’s not just about renting a space; it’s about being part of a vibrant business community, leading to unforeseen collaborations.”
Collectively, Guoco Midtown’s various innovative features represents the developer’s exciting vision of the future of living. Guoco Midtown, with its visionary approach and comprehensive expertise, is poised to elevate Singapore’s urban fabric once more. The developer is creating new transformative spaces that are not only redefining Singapore’s future but also the skyline.
