     Rock Productions and CapitaLand develop Integrated Hub at Vista Xchange

Continued from FrontPage of Article

Design Concept of the Integrated Hub

The design of the Integrated Hub will be unique to Singapore and environmentally friendly. To minimise air-conditioned spaces, the design has opened up all four elevations to encourage air movement through the volume. The retail, civic square, outdoor theatre as well as the pre-function areas of the banqueting/meeting room facilities are all open air along with the dramatic 40 meter high “Grand Foyer”. The result will be an enjoyable year round shaded and cooling environment allowing one to pass through or dwell within. On top of the facility is a large roof top garden shaded with trees and looking over a reflecting pool. Gardens are deliberately placed throughout the facility, softening the distinction of inside and outside spaces and promoting the Integrated Hub as an ecofriendly environment.

About the Integrated Hub, Vista Xchange, one-north

The Integrated Hub is strategically sited within Vista Xchange, which is one of the first three centres of excellence to be developed under JTC’s one-north masterplan. The other two centres of excellence are Life Xchange and Central Xchange which feature key developments like Biopolis and Fusionopolis respectively. Designated as a corporate and business service centre as well as a lifestyle and cultural hub of one-north, Vista Xchange is well supported by public transportation nodes such as the Buona Vista MRT station and a Circle Line MRT station which is currently under construction. Other than the Complex, the 17-hectares Vista Xchange will house high rise offices, a business hotel and quality residential developments. one-north, a 180-hectares development located in Central Singapore, is positioned as an intellectually stimulating and interesting environment where a thriving community of scientists, researchers and technopreneurs can work, live, play and learn.
