The Riverside Dining Location In The Heart Of Singapore

One of the best ways to enjoy both Singapore and dining would be finding your dining spot along the Robertson quay which will not be all that difficult. A quiet breezy stretch along the Singapore River, The Robertson quay stands out from the other two quay as a more peaceful and enjoyable location, deftly packed with hot dining spots serving authentic international cuisine. By daytime one can hop into one of the restaurants for a quick coffee and cake. Later on, as the sun sets in, the atmosphere along the Robertson quay is magical with the breeze from the Singapore River growing stronger. With the deepening dusk, a perfect restaurant by the wayside completes the perfect dinner out.
The variety of cuisine leaves very little to complain about especially for the globe-trotting traveller. One delightful association with this place is the number of Japanese restaurants that lie quite closely huddled, giving rise to its fame as the Japanese hub in the Singapore dining scene. One may well marvel at the authenticity of the food offered at these restaurants which preserve the Japanese trademark excellence and culture. There is even a caf where the theme is centred on books. A bookworm or even an ordinary traveller can cuddle up with a good book and enjoy some hot cake or coffee at the same time. Speaking of cake and coffee, there are also excellent bakeries like the renowned Patessier and even the Chocolatier, where can enjoy baked goodies and fabulous chocolaty items to fulfil the whim of your taste buds.
The Robertson Quay indeed brings the world dining scene closer with its variety of restaurants from pasta and pizza paradise of Italian delights to French restaurants. There is also a Lebanese restaurant as well as a Belgian bar and Bistro to lounge in while casually enjoying its superb casual dining atmosphere.
While visiting, one should not miss out on the fabulous Singapore Hotel Offers which include a pleasant stay right in the city centre with ultra modern conveniences in a superb atmosphere. Studio M Hotel Singapore is wonderfully close to the Robertson quay as well as the Central Business District and its dazzling loft-inspired architecture is merely a prelude to its chic interior, lavish comforts and high tech facilities that is after the heart of the modern traveller. From among the Singapore hotel restaurants, this one also delivers some of the best dining options in the city with exceptional Japanese and French cuisine.

John D. Dingell Transit Center Begins Operation


Dearborn, Mich. (PRWEB) June 12, 2015

The new $ 28.2 million John D. Dingell Transit Center has begun operation in Dearborn, Michigan, positioning the city as a pivotal player in transit connections within southeast Michigan and throughout the region. Planning and design of the project was the result of a collaboration of SmithGroupJJR and Neumann/Smith Architecture.

The new, 16,000-square-foot, two-story transit center, named after former U.S. Congressman John Dingell, Jr., replaces a smaller passenger rail station that dated back to the 1970s. The new center now connects passengers to Amtrak’s Wolverine service, extending from Pontiac to Chicago, and also links to SMART, DDOT and Greyhound buses; corporate and hotel shuttles; taxis; and non-motorized greenways for bicyclists and pedestrians. The project was made possible by a $ 28.2 million grant from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

SmithGroupJJR, Ann Arbor, Michigan, served as landscape architect and civil engineer for the project, working with the City of Dearborn to select the transit center site, manage the environmental clearance stage and prepare a transit-oriented development (TOD) plan for West Dearborn.

“From the very beginning, Dearborn’s goals for the location of the new transit facility were all about connectivity,” said Patrick Doher, PE, SmithGroupJJR principal-in-charge. “The location needed to serve as a gateway and provide regional connection to the city’s great assets, the non-motorized greenway system, businesses and residential neighborhoods.”

In addition to connectivity, the transit center also needed to be a catalyst for economic growth. With opportunities for transit-oriented development and partnerships with private enterprises in the community, its location on Michigan Avenue and adjacent to The Henry Ford met all of those goals.

Neumann/Smith Architecture, Southfield, Michigan, led the multidisciplinary design team during the preliminary and final architectural design phases, including all necessary systems, rail side improvements, platforms and site work, and development of associated linkages to The Henry Ford.

The architectural and site design was based on a unique blending of traditional building details and contemporary elements drawn from transportation cues. The design of the transit center and towers contrasts Romanesque arches of brick and stone masonry with a sleekly inserted metal-paneled bridge that pierces the station’s volume. The building’s traditional detailing elements were implemented to achieve a visual compatibility with its neighbor, The Henry Ford, a National Historic Landmark.

“The transit center’s public face on Michigan Avenue merited a streamlined, contemporary design statement,” explained Neumann/Smith principal Mike Kirk, AIA. “However, the view of the center from within Greenfield Village required a more traditional blending with the village’s historic structures.”

To emphasize the important relationship between the siting of the transit center and The Henry Ford, the passenger bridge over the tracks is aligned on an axis with The Henry Ford Museum’s historic clock tower. “It was an opportunity to honor the past while defining the modern character and design of the transit center,” Kirk said.

Modern site materials, such as stainless steel light columns, wire brushed concrete pavers and concrete bands were utilized for the main entry plaza to contrast with the traditional architecture and automatically draw pedestrians to the “front door.”

“The importance of the Dingell Transit Center can’t be overstated enough,” said Barry Murray, Dearborn’s Director of Community and Economic Development. “It positions Dearborn as a key player in the future of rail transit for Southeast Michigan and is a focal point for economic development in the city’s West Downtown District.”

The transit center is one of the busiest stops on the high-speed corridor between Detroit and Chicago. The highly anticipated commuter rail service between Ann Arbor and Detroit will stop at the station, offering a variety of modern transit options for Dearborn’s residents and visitors.

Since the new transit center began operating in December 2014, plans for a new mixed-use development on underutilized adjacent sites are already underway. Also in development are walkable connections to downtown Dearborn and The Henry Ford, as well as the campuses of the University of Michigan-Dearborn and Henry Ford College.

The transit center is the first train station in Michigan to design and engineer a platform with flip-up edges, helical piers and decorative platform jointing to accommodate both passenger and freight rail while meeting new Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) guidelines that the platform height be 15” above top of rail (ATR).

The building is on track to receive LEED Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design program. It boasts a metal roof with solar collectors, energy efficient lighting, geo-thermal heating and cooling, solar shading glass, electrical vehicle charging stations, bioswale storm water management features and durable finishes of terrazzo, granite, burnished block and metal panels.

The station will support the eventual operation of the Detroit to Chicago High Speed Rail Corridor and the proposed Ann Arbor to Detroit commuter rail line. Also in the future, the commuter rail line will allow easy bus connection to Detroit Metropolitan Airport.

Joining SmithGroupJJR and Neumann/Smith were Tooles/Clark, A Joint Venture, construction manager; Quandel Consultants, rail engineering, Chicago; Kaltsouni Mehdi, rail station consultant architects, Chicago; Penhale & Yates, structural engineers, Southfield, Michigan; DiClemente Siegel Design, mechanical and electrical engineers, Southfield, Michigan; and Somat Engineering, geotechnical engineers, Detroit.

Neumann/Smith Architecture (http://www.neumannsmith.com) specializes in architecture, planning, interior design and historic preservation for corporate and municipal offices, mixed-use developments, multi-unit housing, parking structures, commercial and retail centers and higher education facilities. In addition to the Transit Center, Neumann/Smith has multiple projects in the City of Dearborn, including the City Hall Artspace Lofts, Dearborn Administration Center and the Dearborn Animal Shelter.
