Tanjong Pagar Centre, set to become Singapore’s tallest building upon its completion in 2016 has its design revealed recently.
Positioned as a premier quality business and lifestyle hub, the 1.7-million-square-foot Tanjong Pagar Centre will provide a mix of uses, comprising office, residential, retail and hospitality, in Singapore’s historic Tanjong Pagar central business district. The development will be a significant contribution to the evolving skyline of Singapore and will become a landmark destination, serving as a gateway to the future waterfront city.
The centerpiece of the project will be a re-designed Tanjong Pagar City Park to create unique public spaces that provide activity and open space to visitors. In line with a shared vision of the Singapore Urban Redevelopment Authority and GuocoLand to create lively and attractive public places, protected and useful outdoor gathering spaces and sustainable urban environments, Tanjong Pagar Centre will set the standard for sustainable, livable development in Singapore for generations to come.
Located on the eastern half of the site, the mixed-use office and residential tower will feature Grade-A office space with luxury residential units above. This tower will be the tallest building in Singapore.
The free-standing 20-story mid-rise tower to the west will accommodate the luxury business hotel and its amenities, including restaurants, a conference center, gym, and pool deck overlooking the Tanjong Pagar City Park.
The six-story podium will provide multiple levels of car parking, retail, restaurants, and entertainment, as well as the hotel, office, and residential lobby and amenities level. A large public component includes a “city room,” which will feature public art and outdoor performance areas, ground-level retail, and an underground pedestrian network that will connect to the existing MRT station.
