Wallich Residence catalysing the creation of a new prime district
Wallich Residence is part of Tanjong Pagar Centre by GuocoLand — a one-of-a-kind development that integrates five components and transport connectivity. The development sits atop and is linked to the Tanjong Pagar MRT station, and also houses the five-star Sofitel hotel, 890,000 sq ft of Grade A offices at Guoco Tower, a 100,000 sq ft retail and F&B component and a lush 150,000 sq ft urban park.
Condos in District 10, along with those in Districts 9 and 11, have long been regarded as the crème de la crème in Singapore. According to Knight Frank Research, however, the prime districts have expanded beyond the usual 9, 10 and 11 to include Districts 1 and 2 (the city centre).
Similar to the way Tanjong Pagar Centre has transformed the area surrounding it, Wallich Residence has set new benchmarks for prices in District 2 and is catalysing its transformation into one of Singapore’s new prime districts.
Unique urban luxury
At 290m, Tanjong Pagar Centre is the tallest building in Singapore. The project is designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, the renowned architectural firm behind other skyscrapers in the world, from Burj Khalifa in Dubai to Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago, the US. Unlike other mixed-use developments, where offices or hotels are located at the top, Wallich Residence’s location from 180m above sea level, on the 39th to the 64th floor of the landmark, means that every unit enjoys unblocked views. They comprise one- to four-bedroom units as well as four penthouses and one super penthouse.
The hotel-inspired service at Wallich Residence begins on the ground at the separate vehicular drop-off and entrance for residents. The lobby, where the concierge is located, is spacious and equipped to welcome residents home or to receive guests. On the 39th floor, at 180m above sea level, breathtaking views serve as a backdrop to the infinity pool, landscaped gardens and al fresco dining space equipped for BBQs. There is also a Jacuzzi, entertainment rooms and a gym on the same level.
On the 62nd storey is the observation deck — the highest within a residential development in Singapore. Panoramic views from its height of 270m is a privilege reserved for the residents. All the facilities at Wallich Residence enjoy some of the most stunning views Singapore has to offer, owing to its lofty height. This makes them ideal locations for the residents, who are likely to be captains of industry, to hold meetings and entertain their business partners in a less-corporate setting.
Being part of the same integrated development, the other components of Tanjong Pagar Centre serve as an extension of and complement Wallich Residence. Its residents have the luxury of having everything they need in a single location.
Given its central location, residents of Wallich Residence can reach any place on the island easily. The area has connections to major highways such as the Marina Coastal Expressway and Ayer Rajah Expressway. Changi International Airport is just a 16-minute drive away, while Marina Bay and Orchard Road are a mere four- and eight-minute drive away. With the CBD as a backdrop and future developments in the area, Wallich Residence at Tanjong Pagar Centre represents not just a trophy home, but also an opportunity for investors with foresight.
