Marina Bay Sands Most of Retail Space Rented Out

Marina Bay Sands reported that most of its 800,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space has been rented out to tenants. Only half of the retail space will open with the resort early next year along with the casino, 1,000 hotel rooms and most of the convention center.

One of the first tenants, Luxury French fashion house CHANEL, announced that it will open a unique concept boutique at Marina Bay Sands Singapore, boosting its presence in Southeast Asia.

The new fashion boutique will be a prominent fixture in the resort’s upscale Marina Bay Sands Shoppes. It will encompass 7,600 square feet of space spread over two levels.

"CHANEL is very excited to be part of the Marina Bay Sands concept. It is a great opportunity to join the ultimate house of luxury with a truly innovative and creative retail environment. Singapore has a young, progressive and energetic retail scene,” said Mr. Vincent Shaw, President of CHANEL Asia Pacific.

The concept boutique will feature a stunning new look. It will be designed by legendary New York-based architect and longtime CHANEL collaborator, Peter Marino, the creative genius behind the interactive black-and-white signature design of the house’s boutiques worldwide. It will showcase the brand’s distinctive line of ready-to-wear women's clothing and footwear as well as
accessories including bags, eye-wear, costume jewelery, as well as CHANEL’s fragrance and beauty products.

“Marina Bay Sands’ vision for Singapore has always been to create a spectacular retail experience so we are delighted and honored that CHANEL has chosen Marina Bay Sands Shoppes for such an exciting store,” said Mr. David Sylvester, Vice President Retail Asia, Las Vegas Sands Corp. “This unique store by a quintessential luxury brand like CHANEL is recognition of Marina Bay Sands’ success in achieving its vision,” he said.

With over 800,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, Marina Bay Sands will be an attractive destination for shoppers, offering over 300 stores in a refreshing mix of international luxury brands and cutting-edge and emerging labels previously unseen in Singapore, as well as innovative entertainment options including boat rides in an indoor canal. Shoppers can indulge in cuisines from across the globe – from cosmopolitan cafes and world-class dining to restaurants run by Celebrity Chefs.
