The Singapore Edition, the first in the city-state and Southeast Asia soft opened on Nov 9. The hotel will be managed by Marriott, the largest hotel chain in the world, with a portfolio of 31 brands. Edition, its luxury lifestyle brand, was conceived in partnership with American hotelier and real estate mogul Ian Schrager.
The 204-room hotel spans across six floors. The 154-unit luxury residences Boulevard 88 soars 28 storeys above the hotel block. The architect for the project is Moshe Safdie of Safdie Architects and Singapore-based DP Architects. Safdie is also the architect for two other local landmarks: Marina Bay Sands and Jewel Changi Airport.
Schrager masterminded the interiors of the Singapore Edition hotel in collaboration with Hong Kong-based interior design firm Cap Atelier. The Singapore Edition is a redevelopment of the former Boulevard Hotel by a consortium comprising Singapore tycoon Kwek Leng Beng’s Hong Leong Holdings, Singapore-listed property group City Developments (CDL) and Schrager’s Lea Investments.

The mixed-use development has a double frontage along Orchard Boulevard and Cuscaden Road in prime District 10. However, access to the hotel is from Cuscaden Road.
The freehold Boulevard 88 is over 90% sold, based on caveats lodged, at an average price of $3,814 psf. The biggest penthouse at 6,049 sq ft was sold for $31 million or $5,125 psf in June 2019, setting a new high for the development on an absolute and psf price basis.
Celebrated Australian chef Josh Niland’s first restaurant outside of Australia, Fysh, a seafood-focused steakhouse, is on the first floor of Singapore Edition. Occupying a 2,680 sq ft space, it has a main dining room that can seat 80, an indoor conservatory for up to 22 persons and an outdoor pergola that can seat another 44 diners. Adjacent to the restaurant is the signature bar, Punch Room.

Located at the heart of the hotel is a courtyard garden, which leads to a series of event spaces. There is an 872 sq ft boardroom adjacent to an event gallery spanning 6,458 sq ft with a capacity of 340 guests. The event gallery can be split into three smaller rooms.
The Roof bar features a 43m swimming pool and landscaped garden. The tiled base of the pool comes with a transparent acrylic oculus that gives swimmers a view of the courtyard garden nine floors below.
Other amenities include a spa on the second level with seven treatment rooms, his and hers changing suites, sunken vitality thermal pools, an ice fountain, a relaxation lounge, a sauna and a steam room.
