DUO is located within Bugis, an established arts, educational, heritage and cultural district. It is home to more than 20 historical sites and national monuments, and plays host to an exciting variety of events such as the monthly Bugis Arts Flea Market, and the annual Singapore Night Festival. Located near the Singapore Art Museum, LASALLE College of the Arts, and the Waterloo Street Arts Belt, DUO neighbours this exciting creative world.
Next to Bugis is Kampong Glam, a historical Malay-Arab conservation district with a rich history. The colourful shophouses were once home to a multi-ethnic community of early settlers to Singapore more than a hundred years ago. Today, boutiques, art galleries, and restaurants still intermingle with traditional businesses like carpet retailers and spice traders.
DUO’s modern design adds to the diversity of Bugis and Kampong Glam, and is the leading and largest integrated development in the area. Complementing its historical neighbours, it acts as a bridge in connecting the area’s history to the contemporary Central Business District (CBD), which is located close by.
DUO’s iconic building design adapts to its unique neighbours' rich history and vibrant personalities. At the forefront of mixed-use facilities, DUO is the largest integrated development in Bugis and leads URA’s vision for Ophir-Rochor.
DUO Residence Ophir-Rochor is envisioned as a new growth area and a natural extension from the Marina Centre. The area will feature exciting 24/7 integrated mixed-use developments with offices, hotels, residential and other complementary facilities set within an attractive garden-like environment. The area is expected to be developed over the next 10 to 15 years.
As part of the larger Beach Road/Ophir-Rochor Corridor, the new developments in this area are expected to inject greater vibrancy and activities into this part of the city and form a new office cluster for financial and business institutions that will complement the existing financial district at Raffles Place and Marina Bay.
