Marina Bay Sands (MBS), a  Las Vegas Sands (LVS) integrated resort in Singapore, will invest US$3.32 billion to expand the property.

The project will add a fourth luxury hotel with a sky roof; 1,000 upscale suites; a new concert arena; new food-and-beverage and nightlife offerings; and more space for meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions (MICE).

“With the ongoing support of the Singapore Government, this development will further enhance the leisure and business tourism appeal of Singapore. It optimizes the site’s programming elements and is designed to drive high-value tourism growth to Singapore,” said Patrick Dumont, president and chief operating officer of LVS.

A new 15,000-capacity arena will serve double duty, hosting concerts and other entertainment as well as large conference groups.

According to Asia Gaming Brief, the project has entered the final phase of design enhancements. Construction is set to begin in July 2025 and be complete in July 2029. Safdie Architects, which designed the original property, is once again at the helm, led by Moshe Safdie.

“The all-suite hotel tower will set new standards of hospitality, the state-of-the-art arena will help attract the highest-caliber global entertainment events and artists, and the additional convention and exhibition space will extend the success of Singapore as a leading MICE destination,” Dumont continued. “This significant investment in Singapore will help ensure Marina Bay Sands is ideally positioned to grow its economic, employment and visitorship contributions in the years ahead.”
