It occupies an area of 1,683 square meters, with a height of 13.8m. where the five tower blocks represent the fingers and thumb of a left hand emerging from the ground, the fountain forms the palm of the hand.
The base of the fountain is located underground, on the level of the main basement restaurant area of Suntec City. The circular ring top of the fountain is visible at ground level.
The fountain’s water is intended as a symbol of the essence of life at the center of the buildings which comprise Suntec City. At ground level, street traffic flows around the Fountain Plaza while pedestrian traffic flows through the buildings. Below street level lies the Fountain Terrace, where all the buildings are interconnected with shops and restaurants. The complex is thoroughly interconnected with underground and street-level pedestrian linkways.
