The current state of the Marina Bay is as a result of remarkable transformation and high-class developments. This place was once a silent place at the mouth of Singapore River off Collyer Quay where passager ships docked. Big ships back in those days made a stop in the Bay to offload their cargo as they were not able to penetrate the Singapore River. Small boats ferried the good to warehouses which were along the river banks. In 1992, however,the government relocated them in other areas to open up the waterways. Plans to develop this area started way back in the 1970s with some stages of land reclamation.

It was a milestone project that leads to the land reclamation off Nicole highway and Clifford Pier. As a result, a new location emerged known as the Marina center which was to host both commercial and residential developments. The government continued with land reclamation along the shoreline of Katongto Tanjong Rhu. This initiative gave rise to East and South Marina. The reclamation process had created an area of approximately 660 hectares which created the space for the development of Marina City. The procedure of land reclamation continued which gave rise to the current Marina Bay.
The clear vision of Marina Bay emerged in 1983. The master plans and how the area would look like after development involved public inputs as they also participated in planning. One of the areas that the government spent a colossal amount was the rebranding of the Marina Bay, but
after the tedious task, they settled on original name Marina Bay. Marina Reservoir is a source of fresh water and helps control flood. The structure of the reservoir is a unique design which acts as a tourist attractions site.
