Tanjong Pagar Centre

The new condo at Tanjong Pagar is a landmark development from Guocoland which sits right above Tanjong Pagar MRT at Peck Seah street/Choon Guan street.

It is a SGD3 billion mixed development with residential, 5-star hotel, office and retail outlets rolled in one. The space spans about 500,000 square feet and the development will tower over the neighbourhood buildings with its 64 storeys, making it the tallest residences in Singapore at 280m when completed. Its 181 units of very exclusive and prestigious sky homes will offer unobstructed, panoramic views of the city.

The residential tower will be oriented in the North-South direction, minimizing solar heat gain and optimizing shade. At the very top will be a 3-storey super penthouse, with sweeping views to the north, east, and south of Singapore. The residents will enjoy the benefit of 2 amenities floor that will include a pool deck, 50 meter lap pool, sky gym, function rooms and BBQ area on Level 39. The second amenity floor at Level 52 will include a dining lounge, wine room, business centre and mini- theatre.

The centrepiece of the project will be a re-imagined Tanjong Pagar Park and a City Room, which will create unique public spaces that provide activity and open space to visitors. The City Room will include public art and outdoor performance areas, thus creating a vibrant public environment and extending the activity hours of the Tanjong Pagar Park well beyond business hours and provide weekend attractions.

The units will comprise 1 to 4 bedrooms, junior penthouses and a super-penthouse located right at the top of the tower. Industry sources view this development as a way for Tanjong Pagar to regain some of its lustre which has been affected by nearby Marina Bay.

The development is designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill LLP (SOM) which are famous for designing the Burj Khalifa, currently the tallest building in the world, and One World Trade Centre in New York, the first office tower to rise on the previous World Trade Centre site. In fact, SOM has designed 6 of the world’s 12 tallest buildings.
Developer Guocoland is recognized as a developer of eco-friendly projects which won it the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Green Mark Awards for projects such as Goodwood Residence, Sophia Residence, Leedon Residence, The Waterline, Elliot and The Quartz.

Singapore’s tallest building to be built above Tanjong Pagar station

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.”
