Dr Kisho Kurokawa's Fusionopolis project closer to completion 

Launched in 2003, Singapore’s Fusionopolis is making slow but steady progress towards completion. The 30-hectare project will see the completion of its Phase 1 early 2008 after the deadline was postponed from end-2007; work on Phase 2A started in December 2006.

Containing a cluster of public and private sector R&D institutes from infocomms, science and engineering, Fusionopolis will be built in five phases; progression depends on market demand.

Phase 1 was designed by the late renowned Japanese architect Dr Kisho Kurokawa, who also left his touch on icons such as the Oita and Toyota stadiums in Japan, and the yet-to-be-launched Singapore Flyer. Aside business space, the two-tower cum podium complex also contains a clubhouse, rooftop swimming pool, performance theatre and sky gardens, among others. Media companies can enjoy direct satellite access on the rooftop.

Fusionopolis Phase 2A is a S$250 million complex that will contain 103,600 square metres of gross floor area, housing dry and wet laboratories, clean-room facilities and ground-floor retail units. It is scheduled to be ready by end-2009.

Fusionopolis is part of the 200-hectare development, one-north at Buona Vista. The initiative was masterplanned by JTC Corporation, a statutory board to develop industrial facilities in Singapore.
