American firm SOM, the architectural practice behind Dubai’s Infinity Tower and Burj Khalifa, has unveiled plans to build Singapore’s tallest tower.
The 64-storey, 290-metre tower will be part of a mixed-use development in the city’s business district. It will be positioned on the eastern part of the Tanjong Pagar Centre site, and will contain offices on its lower floors and luxury apartments above.
A smaller tower alongside it will accommodate a business hotel with its own restaurants and conference centre as well as a pool overlooking the redesigned Tanjong Pagar City Park.
An additional six-storey building will provide a car park, shops, restaurants and entertainment as well as an area for public art and outdoor performances.
Currently, the tallest commercial buildings in Singapore stand at 280m while the tallest residential skyscraper has a height of 245m.
The project is scheduled for completion by 2016.
