The Sail at Marina Bay is one of only two residential projects that front Marina Bay, the other being the Marina Bay Financial Center ("MBFC").

The two towers of The Sail at Marina Bay

The Sail sits on about 1 hectare of 99-year leasehold land that was awarded a "white-site" status. The MBFC's site was also awarded on a similar basis, except that it has only one residential tower block flanked by 3 other commercial office towers.

Eight storey car-park block

While The Sail has received its T.O.P. the MBFC is slated for completion in 2011. The Sail and the MBFC are the only residential projects located at the Marina Bay. All other residential projects in the vicinity, such as One Shenton Way & the MacQuarrie Marina Suites are sited further inland from the bay, with no direct view of the Marina Bay.

By 2011-12, Marina Bay will become the new focal point of Singapore as developments in the area are completed.

Projects already completed or in progress include the Sands Integrated Resort ("SIR"), the Marina Barrage, three new state-of-the-art Botanic Gardens, the redevelopment of the nearby Clifford Pier into a world-class F&B lifestyle hub, the Singapore Flyer, a DNA pedestrian-cum-vehicular bridge linking SIR to Marina Center, two new MRT stations (Landmark and Bayfront), and underground walkways linking amenities in the bay area to Raffles Place. Already Marina Bay is the site for the Formula One race, the World Speed-Boat race, and the National Day Parade on the bay itself.

Security

Security at The Sail is enforced through the use of card keys that permit access to the Concierge or Reception Lounge, the lift lobbies and the common facilities. Security guards do regular patrols and mann key entry points. Access is restricted to floor level. That is, the card key permits access to a specific floor only, and access to another resident floor level is either via the staircase or the intercom system.

Intercom System

Each apartment has an intercom system that is operated via the telephone. To activate the intercom system, the apartment owner first has to register a telephone number, either a fixed telephone or mobile line, with the Management Office.

To call the apartment owner, a visitor at the Concierge simply keys in the unit address on a keypad located at the entrance to the lift lobby. The intercom system will then ring the telephone number that the apartment owner has registered with the Management Office.

The apartment owner picks up the call and speaks to the visitor at the Concierge lift lobby entrance. To unlock the lift lobby door, the owner keys in the number 1 on his handphone or fixed telephone, followed by the hex "#" key. Once activated, the visitor is able to enter the lift lobby and take the lift to the owner's floor level.
