What’s great about the Sky Garden has its own operating hours which is from 7AM to 2AM. It is an accessible hang-out place for the entire family, escalators and elevators are provided at the ground level. The ground level has a parking area and public transport terminal. The bridge way is connected to the MMDA overpass and the entire development will be connected to the combined LRT1, MRT1 and MRT7 Grand Terminal in the future.
