The guest rooms will vary in size from 30m² to 56m² and cater to luxury travellers.
21 Carpenter will host a neo-bistro and bar, which will be led by Michelin-starred chef Andrew Walsh as the culinary director.
Situated in the hotel’s centre under a triple-volume glass skylight, the lobby will serve as a cocktail destination, a communal workspace and an all-day cosy spot.
The property will also feature commissioned art by local artists, selected by The Artling, an online art gallery.
Among the amenities to be provided at the property include a rooftop infinity pool, a lounge offering city and Marina Bay views and a garden terrace on the third floor.
This announcement comes just after Marriott International launched a brand in September for the midscale segment called Four Points Express by Sheraton.
