Better known as the Sandcrawler Building, the Singapore facility that housed ILM Singapore is being sold for a hefty £132m. Here’s how Lucasfilm describe this stunning building.

Lucasfilm’s Singapore facility, The Sandcrawler — named for the classic Star Wars transport that inspired its design — is a state-of-the-art complex housing ILM Singapore.

Opened in September 2013, it is centrally located at Fusionopolis and has eight floors of office space, retail shopping, a 100-seat theater, lush gardens, trees, and dense foliage which accents its modern exterior.

Bloomberg take a deeper look at the sale.

Blackstone Group Inc. is looking to purchase Lucasfilm’s building in Singapore for about S$175 million ($132 million), according to people familiar with the matter.

The company has started the process of buying the building known as The Sandcrawler, pending regulatory approval, the people said, requesting not to be named because the matter is private.

The facility, located in central Singapore, has eight floors of office space. It also includes a retail shopping area, a 100-seat theater and lush gardens which accent its modern exterior. The building opened to much fanfare in September 2013, with Lucasfilm founder George Lucas and the city-state’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong attending the launch.
