The Sail
The Sail @ Marina Bay ( Chinese: 滨海舫) is a waterfront lifestyle condominium located in the Marina Bay area in Singapore. It was completed in 2008. The first tenants have moved into Central Park Tower in July 2008. Residents moved into Marina Bay Tower a few weeks later. The structure of The Sail is 245 metres (804 ft.) and 70 stories high and is Singapore's tallest condominium/apartment and among the top 10 tallest residential buildings in the world. This development offers panoramic city view of Marina Bay and the sea. It is close to some of Singapore's famous landmarks such as Suntec City, Marina Bay Sands, Esplanade, Telok Ayer Market and the Singapore River. The Downtown MRT Station is being built a few meters to the West of the building. The Central Linear Park is being built on the South Side next to the building.

The building sits on reclaimed land. Before the site was sold to developers, City Developments Limited and AIG Global Real Estate, the 9,090.9 square metre (2.25 acre) land parcel was sold as a "white site", which means the developer is free to use the site for commercial and/or residential use, by the URA. After the sale, the developer indicated their intention to use it predominantly for residential use with the first level or two for shop units. Their plan was approved by the government. Once completed, it included the first residential development in the New Downtown and is also the tallest predominantly residential development in the city. The 99-year leasehold site was launched for public tender on the 14th of March, 2002. The original design for the building was 69 storeys for Marina Bay Tower, and 58 storeys for Central Park Tower. After the design was finalised by the NBBJ, the number of storeys was revised upwards to 70 storeys for the Marina Bay Tower, and 63 storeys for the Central Park Tower. Design The condominium was designed by Peter Pran with leading design firm NBBJ. The two buildings include a glass facade, sculpted Marina Bay Tower to look like a sail, and configured the complex representative of a huge canyon, reflecting his utilisation of inspirations by the sun, the wind, and the water respectively. The site area is 9,090.9 square metres with a maximum permissible gross floor area of 118,182 square metres. It has 29,000 square feet (2,700 m 2) of retail space, and an underground link to the Raffles Place MRT Station. It will offer 1,111 99-year leasehold residential units, 438 one-bedroom units, 418 two-bedroom units, 175 three-bedroom units, 75 four-bedroom units, as well as 5 penthouses, with the largest almost 9,000 square feet (840 m 2) in size.
