The new tower, designed by Safdie Architects, promises to be a paragon of luxury. With an all-suite hotel that sets new standards in hospitality, the tower will feature a sky roof, offering breathtaking views of the city. This architectural marvel is not just an addition to the existing structure but a testament to the innovative spirit that drives Singapore's development.

The 15,000-seat entertainment arena is poised to become a hub for international events, attracting top entertainers from Asia and around the globe. Its strategic positioning between the existing property and the fourth tower allows for an integrated experience, blending luxury with entertainment. The arena will serve as a vibrant venue for concerts, sports events, and other large-scale gatherings, providing an unparalleled experience for attendees.

The expansion is more than just a construction project; it's a significant investment in Singapore's future. As noted by Patrick Dumont, president and chief operating officer of LVS, this development will drive tourism growth and contribute to Singapore's position as a leading MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions) destination.

The project is expected to create numerous jobs and attract millions of visitors, boosting the local economy and enhancing Singapore's global appeal. Its completion is targeted for July 2029.
