Mapletree Business City (MBC) converted some 13.5 hectares of land in the former Alexandra Distripark into a world class business park in two stages: the first stage of MBC with 3 buildings MBC10, MBC20(MBC20E and MBC20W) and MBC30 was completed in April 2010 and linked to the rejuvenated 3-storey retail Podium (total 89,000 sqft of retail space and over 75 retail outlets) of PSA Building known as the Alexandra Retail Centre (ARC in short) and the second stage MBCII to be completed in 2016. Reportedly costing over $700 million to build, Mapletree Business City II (MBCII) is undergoing construction and when completed in 2016, MBCII will have a 30-storey building terraced down to 8-storey(MBC70), 6-storey(MBC60) and 5-storey(MBC50) buildings. The development of MBCII will see some 1,343,347 sqft of Gross Floor Area being added to the Business Park. There will be a suite of F&B outlets added to the retail component of MBCII to cater to a 10,000 strong workforce. A host of other amenities include state of the art multi-purpose hall space, 11,000 sqft upmarket fitness club, squash court, 44m long heated infinity pool, jogging tracks and landscaped roof gardens will also be made available.
MBC80 at 30-storey will be the tallest business park building built. This building has a net lettable area of 872,000 sqft of large continuous floor plate spanning 32,000 sqft per floor with column-free efficient working space.

Labrador MRT is a good 5-minute walk using sheltered pedestrian bridge from Mapletree Business City, PSA building and Alexandra Retail Centre ARC are all seamlessly connected and within walking distance from this Business Park. What is noteworthy is that there is obviously a lack of short-term accommodation in this Business Park. As with an Business Park in the world, there are always hotels/serviced apartments within the Business Park as part of the integrated business hub, Mapletree Business City could benefit from having one within its premise to be considered a truly outstanding Business Park model for the world at large to replicate.
Mapletree Business City is awarded BCA Green Mark Platinum and LEED Gold for its Green and Sustainable Buildings.
For companies seeking large continuous floor plates in Grade A buildings just outside the Central Business District and qualify to be in Business Park, Mapletree Business City could be an ideal choice for you.
