Abstract: “Challenging Space, Meeting New Frontier” could possibly be one of the taglines that Singapore development is facing. In this report, several issues in relation to Singapore space planning and the introduction of an Underground Integrated Network City will be presented to address one of Singapore’s undeviating issues; land shortage. These issues are sub-divided into seven chapters, which include a case study on the Underground Science City below the Kent Ridge Park to provide a clearer picture of the feasibilities and benefits of the implementation of such a development in Singapore. At first view, this dissertation aims to cover Singapore’s current situation of land space limitation which will allow us to understand the broad idea of this research direction and its purpose. Further into the thesis, a review of the world’s underground city development will be reviewed so as to conceptualise on the Underground Integrated Network City that is required in Singapore’s current city built-up. Benefits and implications of such an underground development on the users’ end and construction cost will be discussed in perspectives, to allow us to understand the receptiveness of the end-users and to unravel the cost in construction, plot ratio costing and the amount of surface land space likely to be saved. This paper also aims to uncover the key factors and consideration for such a development in order to put in place a system proving the feasibility of this hypothesis implementation, which could drives Singapore towards sustainable development. At the end, a feasibility study on the planning and consideration of possible facilities to be integrated underground will be examined to determine the land space that could likely be saved and the optimisation of space on the surface for lifestyle development. This research paper would be useful and informative for the Singapore Authorities and Developers in the area of U
