Sentosa-Brani Master Plan | An island playground in a global city

Known as the Sentosa-Brani Master Plan, the comprehensive blueprint for re-imagining the islands will be rolled out in phases over the next two to three decades.

It will see SDC leverage the islands’ natural attributes, from ridges to coral reefs, to form the backdrop for world-class leisure attractions, as well as lively night-time offerings. Transport connections to, and within, the islands will also be enhanced.

New public realms, which are authentic in character and environmentally sustainable, will also be created, including rejuvenated beaches and expanded nature and heritage trails.

The redeveloped islands will feature five distinct zones – Vibrant Cluster, Island Heart, Waterfront, Ridgeline, and Beachfront. Each will deliver unique experiences, with the zones progressively taking on a more leisurely and naturalistic character as visitors travel further from the urban heartlands towards the islands’ edges.

The plan to reinvent Sentosa-Brani forms part of a wider Government-backed scheme to rejuvenate Singapore’s Greater Southern Waterfront (GSW), which has been made possible by the proposed relocation of Singapore’s ports in 2027.

“The Sentosa-Brani Master Plan represents a bold future vision for Singapore as a major international leisure and attraction destination, aligned with an internationally significant landscape framework. This has been designed to protect and enhance the biodiversity of these islands whilst creating distinctive settings for the existing and proposed developments. The Plan represents the input of many consultants working alongside the SDC client team to imagine a future identity for the Sentosa-Brani environment where fun, play and nature come together to create a unique new place for global travellers and Singaporeans.”
