Work in full swing on Opus Bay Phase 1 project in Batam, Indonesia

Construction of the new Opus Bay integrated township in Batam, Indonesia, is well under way. This mixed-use district is being developed by Singapore-based company Tuan Sing Holdings Limited.

Spanning 125 ha and launched in phases, Opus Bay is one of Tuan Sing’s most expansive projects in Indonesia. Under Phase 1, Opus Bay’s Cluny Villas have completed structural works and progressed on to architectural works, while the Balmoral Tower is undergoing foundation works.  

China Construction has been appointed as the main contractor of the project. Ong&Ong is the architect behind the Cluny Villas, while RT+Q is the architect for the Balmoral Tower. Lead8 and Park + Associates are respectively the architects on the design of the retail offerings and enhancement of the existing ferry terminal. Overall, New York-based Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates is the masterplan architect.

Units at the Cluny Villas, a community of luxurious resort-style villas, are scheduled to be completed from Q4 2023 onwards. The Balmoral Tower, which features high-rise residential apartments with seafront views, is expected to be ready by Q4 2025. Future developments at Opus Bay will include lifestyle offerings such as entertainment, F&B, retail, hospitality and tourist attractions.

“Opus Bay aims to unlock Batam’s untapped potential and transform the island into an exciting destination. It is designed to be a vibrant hub where residents can live, work, play and learn, surrounded by lush greenery and a stunning seafront view,” said Tuan Sing. The new township is located next to the Batam waterfront ferry terminal, about 40-minute ferry ride from the Singapore Harbourfront ferry terminal.

Whilst the progress of Opus Bay is on track, Tuan Sing is also making headway with the construction of The Grand Outlet – East Jakarta. The latter, which is a joint venture project with Mitsubishi Estate Co Ltd, is slated for completion in late 2023. This luxury outlet mall is set to be a landmark in Karawang, a rapidly growing economic hub connecting Indonesia’s capital city, Jakarta, and its third-largest city, Bandung.
