The prime ministers of Singapore and Malaysia unveiled the design of an upcoming joint venture project in the republic's central business district on Tuesday.

The Marina One development, a joint venture between Temasek Holdings and Khazanah Nasional, will be designed by Christoph Ingenhoven, an architect known for green and sustainable buildings, including Google's headquarters in Mountain View, California.

Tan Sri Azman Yahya chairman of M+S, the developer set up by Temasek and Khazanah, said: "We wanted a design which would be a convergence of the energy and vibrancy of the new central business district."

Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong described Marina One as very important for both Singapore and Malaysia. He said it would be "an iconic project in our new business district for many more years to come".
