DANIEL LIBESKIND IN SINGAPORE
April 6, 2010

Daniel Libeskind Reflections at Keppel Bay SingaporeReflections at Keppel Bay, which has topped-out its first tower, will redefine Singapore’s southern coast. Tower 1A is the first of six glass towers to be completed in the waterfront residential development.
Reflections at Keppel Bay is comprised of six glass towers and 11 villa apartment blocks featuring 1,129 luxury waterfront apartments along a 750 meter shoreline, all with views of the bay, golf course, lush parks and Mount Faber.

Crowning the towers are lush sky gardens on sloping rooflines, and are linked by sky bridges, providing pockets of open spaces and platforms with 360-degree views of the spectacular surrounds including Resorts World Sentosa and Universal Studios Singapore.

At the topping-out ceremony, Mr. Choo Chiau Beng, Chief Executive Officer of Keppel Corporation and Chairman of Keppel Land, said: “As Singapore undergoes dramatic changes to position itself as an international hub attracting multi-national companies and world citizens, demand for quality residences will grow in tandem.
The positive economic sentiments, improved job market and the buzz generated by the two integrated resorts have also contributed to the return of buying interest in the residential market.
In addition, there is a worldwide trend favoring waterfront living where homeowners are seeking a lifestyle, prestige and other value propositions associated with a coveted address. This is where Keppel Bay, now with our iconic Reflections at Keppel Bay, meets the taste and demand of these discerning home buyers.”

Demand for Reflections at Keppel Bay has been strong, with 96% of the 740 launched units sold to date.

Reflections at Keppel Bay is architect Daniel Libeskind’s first residential showcase in Asia. His other works includes some of the world’s most celebrated architectural icons like the Jewish Museum Berlin, Denver Art Museum. His most recently completed projects include Crystals in Las Vegas - the luxury shopping center in MGM Mirage’s CityCenter which opened in December, 2009 and the 2100 seat Grand Canal Theatre in Dublin which opened on March 18th.

Mr. Libeskind had returned to Singapore to attend and witness the milestone ceremony together with Dr. Lee Boon Yang, Chairman of Keppel Corporation, as well as senior management representatives from Keppel and main contractor, Woh Hup.
Mr. Libeskind commented “Turning a dream into a reality is always a thrill for an architect. Reflections is an expression of the wonderful collaboration with the Keppel Corporation and exemplifies the ongoing and future success of Singapore.”
