Words by Michelle Yee
These days, when it comes to purchasing a property, location, amenities and aesthetics are no longer the only factors that homeowners care about. In fact, wellness-focused features in a development are becoming more important than ever. Many will agree that the global pandemic has accelerated numerous trends, and among them is the demand for wellness-focused property developments, which are homes that are proactively designed and built to support the holistic health of its residents. Apart from offering an abundance of lush greenery, soothing water features, as well as well-thought out recreation spaces that are designed for ultimate relaxation around the property, wellness-focused developments also place a huge emphasis on how the building and its surroundings – lighting, air quality, noise levels etc., have on a person’s physical and mental health.
For new homeowners looking for a property that is centrally located, adopts a holistic wellness approach, and offers utmost comfort and luxury, Marina One Residences is a unique development that ticks all the right boxes.
A Holistic Wellness Approach
More than just a luxurious property located in a prime location, Marina One Residences, which adopts a holistic wellness approach covering various aspects of living: occupational, social, emotional, spiritual and physical, has been conceptualised as a sanctuary for getting re-centred and re-energised.
- Occupational Wellness
Designed to promote occupational wellness, Marina One Residences, which is part of Marina One, a 3.67 million square feet integrated development comprising luxury residences, retail spaces and Grade A offices, offers a convenient, tranquil, luxurious and well-rounded lifestyle that is second to none. For those working in the Central Business District, they will benefit from having to spend lesser time commuting to and from the office, allowing them to dedicate more time to their loved ones and hobbies. Furthermore, visiting clients and setting up meetings in the city will be a breeze. For those who will be working from home indefinitely, Marina One Residences’ spacious and flexible apartments – ranging from 657 sq ft for a one-bedder to 2,250 sq ft for a four-bedder, allow ample space to set-up a home office.
- Social Wellness
Humans are social beings by nature and studies have shown that establishing close relationships with family, friends and co-workers can contribute to social wellness. One way to stay close and connected to friends and family is to visit them often, and Marina One Residences, with its prime location, offering unrivalled connectivity to the other parts of the island, will give residents the flexibility to do so without much fuss.

Additionally, with 140,000 sq ft of retail, lifestyle and F&B spaces at its doorstep, Marina One Residences offers residents plenty of opportunities to meet new people and establish new connections.
- Emotional and Spiritual Wellness
Research has shown that green spaces in developments, such as parks, playgrounds and residential greenery offers numerous benefits to both mental and physical health by providing psychological relaxation, stress alleviation, stimulates social cohesion, supports physical activity and reduces exposure to air pollutants, noise and excessive heat.
When it comes to carefully planned green spaces, Marina One Residences offers one of the most outstanding green landscapes in the city. Aptly named the Green Heart, the green paradise is a biodiversity garden designed by award-winning Ingenhoven Architects, in collaboration with landscape architects Gustafson Porter + Bowman and ICN Design. Drawing inspiration from a rainforest valley, the Green Heart comprises 386 species of plants and trees, and includes a 13m waterfall and reflecting pools. The Green Heart has a deeply calming effect, and serves as both an outdoor civic plaza for people to interact with one another and a serene oasis within the city for residents office workers and the general public.
With Marina One Residences, the developers have successfully delivered the best of both worlds: exclusivity, tranquillity and privacy without compromising on a slew of modern conveniences.
- Physical Wellness
