A monumental mixed-use development by GuocoLand Limited is on its way to Tanjong Pagar. To be completed in 2016 is Tanjong Pagar Centre which will be the tallest building in the area. To occupy a space at the junction of Peck Seah and Choon Guan Streets, it will be made up of a commercial and office tower, a residential building, a five-star hotel, an urban park and community facilities. The existing Tanjong Pagar MRT station (East/West) will be integrated with this exciting new property, facilitating easy, breezy travel. Tanjong Pagar Centre is envisioned to be a vibrant urban lifestyle complex that will usher in a new life to Tanjong Pagar in District 2.
The upcoming Tanjong Pagar Centre’s residential arm is Wallich Residence. The 99-year leasehold will feature the highest homes in all of Singapore, overlooking the city from 180 metres above sea level, with the highest point coming up at 290 metres. 181 exclusive residential units are in 64 floors. Aptly nicknamed “sky homes”, these high-end units will provide an unobstructed panorama, as well as allow optimal light and air with the ideal north-south orientation. These sky homes will come in one-bedroom, two-bedroom, three-bedroom, and four bedroom apartments, as well as junior penthouses. Crowning the building will be a super penthouse, with 3 spacious levels and an amazing view.
The complex is designed by Singapore’s Architects 61, in conjunction with internationally celebrated firm Skidmore, Owings & Merril. Skidmore, Owings & Merril is behind the futuristic architectural design of the world’s tallest building, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa.
Lifestyle and Leisure
Wallich Residence will also have two levels of leisure amenities to make living increasingly more delightful. First off is the 39th level, which will offer a 50-metre lap pool, a pool deck, a barbecue area, a sky gym, and a bunch of function rooms. The other is the 52nd level, which will put forth a wine room, a dining lounge, a mini theatre, and a business centre. Apart from these, occupants of Wallich Residence can make use of the facilities of Tanjong Pagar Centre, including the upgraded Tanjong Pagar Park, and the City Room, which encompass outdoor activity spaces and performance areas.
In addition, the site for Wallich Residence is very near to several shopping venues, including 100 AM, Marina Bay Link Mall, UE Shopping Mall, Far East Square, China Central Square, and Icon Village. Also close by are Clarke Quay, Marina Bay, Chinatown, People’s Park Complex, and a whole lot of restaurants and food and beverage outlets. For even more recreation options, you can go check out Singapore Mariners Club, Singapore Cricket Club, Singapore Recreation Club, Fort Canning Park, Hong Lim Park, or Esplanade Park. For your daily needs, you can go to any of the nearby supermarkets, like NTUC FairPrice Tanjong Pagar, NTUC Fairprice Amara, or Giant Supermarket in Amara Hotel.
Getting around will be supremely easy if you live at Wallich Residences, since the Tanjong Pagar MRT Station will be seamlessly connected to the development. You can effortlessly catch a ride on the East/West Line. If needed, you can change to the North/South train at Raffles Place one stop away, or to the North/East at Outram Park which is one stop in the opposite direction. By the year 2021, the Thompson/East Line will be completed, offering a ride via the new Shenton Way Station or the upcoming Maxwell Station, which are both just a quick walk away.
Driving will also be a extremely rewarding experience. Just around the corner from Tanjong Pagar Centre is Anson Road, which extends southward to the Marina Coastal Expressway and northward to Marina Boulevard. Within a few minutes, you can also reach the Ayer Rajah Expressway, the Central Expressway, or the East Coast Parkway.
The new Tanjong Pagar Centre will soon enliven the cityscape with its new commercial centre, offices, and other facilities, but one thing you should look forward to is Wallich Residences. This cutting-edge address elevates the urban lifestyle, both literally and figuratively, with its collection of sky homes and various offerings.
