Singapore’s skyline is set to welcome its tallest building in 2016 at a site above Tanjong Pagar MRT station.
Developer GuocoLand said the 67-storey office-cum-residential tower will form part of the upcoming integrated development called the Tanjong Pagar Centre.
At 290 metres high, the building will soar above Republic Plaza, One Raffles Place and UOB Plaza One, which are 280 metres tall each.
There will also be a hotel and a shopping mall in the integrated development.
The entire development will have a floor space of 1.7 million square feet.
GuocoLand intends to launch the residential units for sale in the second half of this year, depending on market conditions.
Group managing director of GuocoLand, Trina Loh said: “I think it is difficult to give an exact price now. When it is closer (to the date of launch) we will reveal it.
“But if you look around the area, we have achieved certain prices. And we are very confident our product and the residential component starting at above 180 metres which is really above 50 storeys for residential should command a premium price compared to the area.”
