Luxury meets sustainability at Corals at Keppel Bay
A seafront home represents the height of luxury in the local property market. But just as humans need homes to live in, marine life also needs corals in order to thrive. This is why marine conservation and cultivation was an important consideration for Keppel Land’s in the process of building Corals at Keppel Bay, its newest luxury development which elegantly combines seafront splendour and urban glamour.
The upcoming Corals at Keppel Bay development comprises 366 luxurious waterfront homes designed by world-renowned master architect Daniel Libeskind. Corals at Keppel Bay is located along the historic King’s Dock, which first opened in 1913 and is one of Singapore’s oldest docks. It is also one of the richest areas in the country in terms of biodiversity. Aside from providing outstanding facilities at Corals at Keppel Bay, the developer has also been proactive in the conservation and propagation of corals within the King’s Dock area, with the aim of helping build a thriving ecosystem within Keppel Bay.
“True to its name, Corals at Keppel Bay, apart from featuring world-class waterfront homes, also provides an underwater sanctuary for marine life to thrive,” says Tan Swee Yiow, President (Singapore), Keppel Land.
Boosting biodiversity at Keppel Bay
Harvested coral fragments from donor corals are first attached to nursery tables. Once grown, the hard corals are taken from Keppel Land’s nursery and are transplanted to King’s Dock.
A corals cultivation survey conducted by Keppel Land showed that Keppel Bay is currently home to a vibrant aquatic community comprising corals, butterflyfish, common seahorse, and sea urchins, with the threatened Tiger Tail Seahorse a regular visitor to the waters. Rebecca Tan, model and marine life enthusiast, discovered firsthand how Keppel Land has spearheaded the corals cultivation process at King's Dock.
