The transformation of stations through placemaking, community building, introduction of new concepts and curation of retail mix has breathed new life to underutilised common areas. Through placemaking and community building efforts, our stations have evolved into vibrant and engaging environments that cater to the diverse needs and aspirations of the communities we serve.
Hive by Stellar Lifestye
Launched at Esplanade MRT in October 2022, Hive is a dedicated resource centre with practical, go-to-market implementation solutions to develop a robust, innovative digital ecosystem for SMEs. Hive serves as a dynamic platform for business experimentation and growth, providing participants from the Accelerate programme with a supportive environment to refine their business concepts and have greater market presence. The lively atmosphere created by vibrant Hive activations for our tenants, SMEs and the innovation community has led the tenant occupancy at Esplanade MRT Station to be near full capacity
Stellar Lifestyle launched its first Singapore-based corporate start-up, pioneering multi-concept lifestyle centres starting with Marsiling MRT station in September 2022. Addressing the changing needs of a hybrid workforce, Staytion Spaces offers co-working facilities at train stations, a convenient solution for professionals on the go. Following its success, additional Staytion Spaces have also been established at Paya Lebar and Woodlands MRT stations.
With a range of lifestyle spaces, hot desks, meeting rooms and creative spaces, this innovative approach bridges the gap between work and travel, catering to the evolving demands of a mobile workforce.
Stellar@TE2, the retail space at the Thomson-East Coast Line’s Woodlands MRT Station, is an example of community building and engagement within stations. The space has incorporated initiatives such as a hand-painted Yamaha community piano, where aspiring musicians and talented individuals can delight commuters with captivating musical performances.
