Marina One, located in Singapore's Central Business District, is a mixed-use development project combining office, residential and commercial space, with restaurants, stores and gyms.

- The project is comprised of four towers, all connected by what's called the "heart center," an area filled with thousands of plants, trees and even a waterfall. There are also skybridges and terraces decked out in greenery, making for a total of 160,000 plants. In fact, the biodiversity throughout Marina One is equivalent to six Olympic-sized swimming pools, according to the developers.

- The development is LEED Platinum-certified and designed and constructed in a manner that reduces carbon dioxide emissions, water and electricity consumption. The orientation of the building was designed to reduce heat gain and the glare of Singapore's scorching sun to help the offices stay cool. The greenery, meanwhile, helps reduce heat and improve air quality.
