IT'S called the Mapletree Business City (MBC), but its 10,000-strong working community do more than just business. As early as 6.30am every weekday, fitness enthusiasts can start working out at the 11,000 square foot gym, which is operated by Fitness First and located on the seventh floor.

Those who aren't keen to work up a sweat can take a dip in its 44-metre long infinity pool, which also offers a view of the surrounding landscape. And you won't catch a cold from chilly water, because the pool comes heated.

MBC's focus on providing a healthy lifestyle is set to get even stronger once redevelopment work starts at the end of this year on The Comtech - a 10-storey building which currently stands adjacent to MBC and, when completed in 2016, will form Mapletree Business City II. The people behind the business park at Mapletree Investments have decided to enhance the work and play component, and have dreamt up a blueprint for the $700 million project that includes two futsal and two basketball courts.
