An old and new icon of Singapore, the Merlion and Marina Bay Sands. Raini Hamdi / Raini Hamdi, Skift.

Skift Take: The iconic Marina Bay Sands will get a fourth tower. There will also be a new concert arena. Over at Resorts World, there’ll be two new hotels, a bigger Universal Studios and an oceanarium. Singapore’s way of getting casino resorts to improve the city’s tourism appeal is smart, and fair, never mind it’s a bit of coercion. The resorts wouldn’t invest more if they aren’t benefiting.
