Tallest building in Singapore will be Tanjong Pagar Centre by GuocoLand

Tallest building in Singapore will be mixed use-development Tanjong Pagar Centre right above Tanjong Pagar MRT station. The plans for the building is unveiled today by Malaysian tycoon Quek Leng Chan's GuocoLand. This will be GuocoLand's first mixed-use development in Singapore.

290 metre Tanjong Pagar Centre will sit along Choon Guan Street, Peck Seah Street and the new Wallich Street in the heart of Tanjong Pagar, which has been earmarked for development as Singapore’s next business and lifestyle hub in the Central Business District. It will also be the gateway to the future waterfront city that will replace the existing Tanjong Pagar ports.

Tanjong Pagar Centre will include Guoco Tower, a 38-storey, Grade A office block and TP180, offering prestigious and limited collection homes above Guoco Tower. TP180 will be the tallest residences in Singapore, starting at 180 metres (equivalent to 50 residential storeys) and reaching up to 290 metres, offering unparalleled sea and city views. The integrated development will also contain six levels of premium retail and F&B space integrated with Tanjong Pagar MRT station, a luxury business hotel linked to the main tower.

“Tanjong Pagar Centre is GuocoLand’s first integrated mixed-use project in Singapore. Its fusion of premier office, retail, residential and hospitality spaces raises the bar for what is available in this part of the CBD. The richness of the historical district, park and landscape spaces will differentiate it from other commercial developments. We have set out to build a global icon that will position Tanjong Pagar as a premier quality business and lifestyle district in the CBD and be a benchmark for sustainable and liveable developments. As such, it will become one of the CBD’s and the region’s most sought-after addresses not only for work, but for live and play as well,” said Mrs Trina Loh, Group Managing Director, GuocoLand (Singapore) Pte Ltd.
