Mr Tony Tan, CEO of the Manager of CICT, said: “We are pleased that CapitaSpring has achieved 93% in leasing commitment, a notable outcome at the point of TOP for a building of its scale, and commendable in the context of the current pandemic. The positive market reception for CapitaSpring reinforces our confidence that offices continue to remain an integral part of companies’ workplace strategies.

CapitaSpring sky garden – at 280 metres above ground, the Sky Garden at level 51 of CapitaSpring features Singapore’s tallest publicly accessible observatory deck offering 360-degree scenic views of Marina Bay and CBD:

Just as other office developments are starting to reinvent their offerings to accommodate new work norms, CapitaSpring is ahead of the curve with its forward-looking solutions that position it as a sustainable, flexible and connected workplace ecosystem. We are continuing to see healthy interest from companies in diverse sectors looking for quality workspaces in the CBD and expect to see more leasing momentum driven by tenants’ flight to quality, underpinned by the demand from new growth sectors and limited new Grade A office supply in Singapore.”
