• New Lifestyle Hub Opens

    4 September 2017

    Singapore residents are no strangers to high-rise buildings. Indeed, the city has a plethora of skyscrapers in its famous Marina Bay area and in the greater Downtown Core district. So for older Singapore hands, it may come as a surprise to hear that the city’s newest super-high building is to be found due south of the core – in the historic Tanjong Pagar neighborhood.

    Rising some 290m, the newly opened, Samsung C&Tconstructed Tanjong Pagar Centre now dominates the local skyline. The monolithic structure represents a deepening of the bond of trust established between the city authorities and Samsung C&T, a company that has been active for over two decades in Singapore, building subway stations, airport facilities, hospitals and expressways – as well as 60m-deep subterranean power tunnels.

    The elegant Tanjong Pagar Centre represents a new design and living concept for urban Singaporean residences; the Centre is a multi-purpose structure that features a giant selection of lifestyle facilities built into a single, ultra-large building. Within the Tanjong Pagar Centre itself, you can work, rest, play – and dine – in style, without ever leaving the confines of the building. Source: news.samsungcnt.com
