Be nice to have a second option in the city.
This will be an interesting development.

The DUO mixed development in Ophir is a huge plot of land, next to Parkview Square (the gotham looking building) and this land has been given to a Malaysia-led consortium (Khazanah and Temasek) as part of the swop when Malaysia agreed to give up the railway station and tracks in Singapore, back to Singapore.

The DUO development includes offices, residences, retail, and now the Andaz Hotel, and will stretch the boundaries of the CBD further out to the Rochor area which has been up to now, B-grade.

Along with the iconic South Beach Hotel opening in April 2015, which will be the next hip thing in town, the whole Beach Road area will be interesting to watch going forward.
