Coming: A New Media Hub

Source : The Straits Times, Dec 10, 2008

SINGAPORE is setting the stage - literally - for special effects movies like Frank Miller's acclaimed 300, with a new 19-hectare media hub to be built at 1 North.

When completed in 2020, the park, which is about the size of 23 football fields, will feature digital media schools, production companies, 24-hour food and entertainment outlets, business hotels, service apartments, and Singapore's biggest and most high-tech film production set.

Mediapolis, as the park is called, will 'add significant scale and depth to Singapore's media infrastructure,' said Dr Lee Boon Yang, the Minister for Information, Communications and the Arts, at the annual Asian Media Festival on Wednesday.
