New luxury hotel W Singapore - Sentosa Cove is the first new hotel to be awarded the Green Mark Platinum Award, said City Developments Limited (CDL).
Property developer CDL upped its corporate sustainability ante with the unveiling of its new luxury hotel, W Singapore - Sentosa Cove.
The developer claims that W Singapore is the greenest hotel in Singapore and is the only new hotel in the country to be awarded the Green Mark Platinum Award - the highest rating tier for green buildings awarded by the Building and Construction Authority.
CDL said that it spent about 3.5% of the property's total development costs on environmentally sustainable features. The developer declined to reveal the total development cost of W Singapore.
Green features incorporated into the property include a rainwater catchment system that collects rainwater for the watering of some 5,700 sq m of the hotel's plant area, saving 15,000 cubic metres of water and about SGD 22,000 in operational costs annually.
