Downtown East

A new-old habitat

Downtown East is a family-fun destination by NTUC and was first developed in 1986. Revamping it in 2013, the new Master Plan sought to integrate and update existing amenities with extended new ones so as to create a more exciting and captivating leisure experience with a sense of identity.

The Master Plan zoning comprises main components – the E-hub, the Members, Union and Community Engagement (MUCE) facilities, the Wild Wild Wet theme park and the Costa Sands Downtown East Resort – connected across the site by a new pedestrian network.

Greenery plays a large role in creating a calm and cool ambience that is perfect for relaxing.
Evoking the sense of an idyllic resort getaway in the tropics, a variety of plant species are used in the landscaping.
The use of light foliage not only softens the appearance of the entrance of D’Resort but also creates a welcoming presence.

Embracing nature

In Phase 1 of its design, mainly the accommodation component, a 117-room Hotel building, forms the central focus. Its L-shaped form affords sea views to a maximum number of rooms. Low-rise Chalets were planned around the site, encapsulating the Hotel. Zoned according to their contextual proximity, the chalets are designated the Beach, Park and Mangrove Chalets, capitalizing on the views to these varied site features and nestled amongst conserved trees and its particular natural habitat. Hence, the Chalets offer the members and public a diverse variety of choices for their holiday sojourn with its distinctive thematic landscape.
