J.P. Morgan, the global banking and financial services provider, will take up close to a quarter of the 635,000 square feet (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.

Mr Ronald Tay, CEO of CapitaLand Singapore, Malaysia & Indonesia, said: “CapitaSpring is set to evolve into a Singapore landmark – yet another testament of CapitaLand’s capabilities in building sustainable, people-centric developments as we set new benchmarks for workplaces of the future. With our deep expertise in developing and managing offices, malls, serviced residences and integrated developments, CapitaLand is in a unique position to lead the charge in rejuvenating Raffles Place with CapitaSpring. The name CapitaSpring reflects our vision of a refreshing, vibrant, future-ready vertical community enabled by technology and seamlessly connected to transport nodes. Our best-in-class design, engineering and smart technologies will be complemented by active placemaking initiatives to define a strong sense of place and enrich the lives of the people and communities at CapitaSpring.”

The name “CapitaSpring” is inspired by the Green Oasis, a four-storey high botanical promenade between the Grade A office floors and the modern serviced residences

The name “CapitaSpring” is inspired by the Green Oasis, a four-storey high botanical promenade between the Grade A office floors and the modern serviced residences. 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. Celebrating the harmony of tech-enabled modernity and flourishing tropicality, CapitaSpring also encompasses the lineage of CapitaLand and our credo “Building People. Building Communities.” in this people-centric integrated development.

CapitaSpring which broke ground for construction in February 2018, will be one of the tallest and greenest buildings in Raffles Place, with integrated commercial and community spaces and a City Room at the ground floor. 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.
