Site Introduction

The Tourism Development, bounded by Jurong Town Hall Rd and Boon Lay Way, is located within Jurong Lake District (JLD), the largest mixed-use business district outside Singapore's city centre to support decentralisation efforts and capitalise on new growth opportunities.

The Tourism Development is part of an exciting leisure and recreational precinct that has been planned around the 70ha Jurong Lake to complement the new mixed-use district. Together with the New Science Centre and Jurong Lake Gardens, the tourism development will capitalise on JLD’s distinctive lakeside setting with abundant greenery to create unique and attractive spaces and recreational options for people to enjoy. The direct connection of the site to the Chinese Garden (EWL) MRT station also provides for easy connection via public transportation from the city centre.

Vision

The proposed concepts must be world class and distinctive, with a unique and compelling mix of offerings including attractions, a hotel, retail, F&B, entertainment event spaces, MICE spaces and public spaces. Concepts should leverage technology to provide immersive experiences that capture visitors’ imagination, and deliver fun, enriching and memorable experiences. The different components should complement each other and be well integrated in form and function.

The proposed concepts should also be a key purpose-of-visit for local and international visitors with the ability to drive repeat visitorship and growth in tourism receipts. They should set new standards and be aligned with the masterplan and positioning for Jurong Lake District, as well as integrate seamlessly with the adjacent leisure offerings such as the Jurong Lake Garden’s and the new Science Centre. Some potential themes for the tourism development which could be considered include nature, wellness, tech-based edutainment and sustainability.

Tender Brief

The Singapore Tourism Board is inviting proposers to submit their proposals for the development of the Tourism Development, on behalf of the Government of the Republic of Singapore.

SUBMISSION OF TENDER

The tenderers shall deposit the Concept Proposal, Concept Proposal- Financial Model and the Price Proposal:

• in sealed envelopes that are correctly labelled together with the physical models and AO sheets;

• in the Tender Room 1.1, Singapore Tourism Board, Tourism Court, 1 Orchard Spring Lane, Singapore 247729;

• on 18 October 2022 ("the Request for Proposal submission date") between 10:00am and not later than 4:00pm Standard Singapore Time on the Closing Date.

Any proposals submitted after 4:00 pm Singapore Time on the Closing Date will not be considered.

ACCEPTANCE OF PROPOSAL

The Company’s offer shall be valid for a period of 24 calendar weeks from the closing date of the RFP.  On expiry of the offer, the Company shall, if the Board so requires, extend the validity of the offer for one or more periods not exceeding in total 24 calendar weeks.

Selection of the winning tender will be based on the proposal concept and tendered sale price. However, the Authority reserves the right to reject the highest or any tender.

MODIFIED CONCEPT AND PRICE REVENUE TENDER

The Concept and Price Revenue Tender approach will be adopted for the tourism development to ensure that the selected concept proposals are aligned with the tourism vision for the site. Under this approach, proposers are required to submit their concept proposals and tender prices separately. Only shortlisted concept proposals will proceed to the second stage of evaluation, which will then be based only on price.

For this site, STB will modify the existing Concept and Price Revenue Tender approach in evaluating the proposals received. Specifically, a proposer with an outstanding concept proposal identified at the first Concept Evaluation stage will be offered the option to top up its bid price in the event that the proposer is not the highest bidder. This is to strongly incentivise proposers to draw up exceptional concepts, as they would have a greater chance of securing the proposal while achieving the best possible development outcome.

The top-up option will, however, be offered very selectively, limited to one or two proposals that are considered exceptionally outstanding amongst all shortlisted proposals in the first Concept Evaluation stage. In the situation where there is no such outstanding proposal identified, the award may be given to the highest bidder.
