Living On Top Of The World

The phrase “a place to live, work and play” comes to mind to many people when they are asked what their ideal home would be. This is especially so for young professionals and executives who often have to arrange their own personal schedules around their work commitments. They may have to fit in an hour or two to go for a workout or to find time for a nice meal with friends or family before heading back to office to take a conference call, as an example, with their headquarters based in the United States.

Sitting directly above Tanjong Pagar MRT station is Tanjong Pagar Centre (TPC), a new iconic integrated development standing at a height of 290m. Built by developer GuocoLand, TPC is now not just Singapore’s tallest building, but it is also the epitome of integrated city living as it is Singapore’s only 5-in-1 integrated development combining luxury residences with a shopping mall, urban park, grade A office space and a business hotel.

Guoco Tower is home to several multi-national companies who have also set up regional headquarters in Singapore, while Sofitel Singapore City Centre is a new 5-star luxury business hotel offering 222 elegant rooms and suites, 8 meeting rooms and a ballroom that accommodates up to 350 persons. TPC also has 100,000 sq ft of retail space spread over six floors with a wide selection of F&B establishments and fashion brands as well as the largest Virgin Active fitness centre in Singapore, with state-of-the-art facilities such as a Himalayan Salt Inhalation Room, high altitude studio and relaxing sleep pods. At the foot of TPC is Tanjong Pagar Park, an urban park that also serves as a large community space for people to work out together and is also a popular event space for major brands such as Singapore Airlines who recently used the space to promote their new aircraft including the Boeing 787-10.

The crown atop Tanjong Pagar Centre is Wallich Residence, located from the 39th (180m) to 64th floors with 181 exclusive units including four penthouses and, the crown jewel – an ultra-luxurious super penthouse. Luxury fills the air of each of the units with the finest of fixtures and fittings, but what will really make guests stop and look is the breath-taking view one gets from inside the various units. At level 39, where the stunning infinity pool is also located, one can already get a bird’s eye view of the area.

Residents of Wallich Residence can also enjoy their signature Wallich Concierge Service, managed by GuocoLand’s concierge team in partnership with Sofitel Singapore City Centre. The services range from booking of residence amenities and facilities to transportation arrangements, housekeeping and entertainment planning. A casual dining room at 180m and an even more exclusive private dining room with a custom-built kitchen at 220m of Wallich Residence will surely impress guests while maintaining the privacy of one’s own home. Finally, at level 62 which is 270m above sea level is the Apex – a sky observatory near to the top of TPC.

Sprawling over 21,108 sq ft and spanning from level 62 to 64 of TPC, the super penthouse of Wallich Residence redefines luxury city living by offering its owner the experience of living in a bungalow in the sky.

Tanjong Pagar Centre is the brainchild of world-renowned architectural firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, who are also the minds behind more than 10,000 projects across 50 countries, including some of the world’s most iconic buildings such as One World Trade Centre in New York and the tallest building in the world today, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

TPC offers easy access to the rest of Singapore via MRT and major expressways such as Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE) and Ayer Rajar Expressway (AYE). It is also seen as a gateway to the new Greater Southern Waterfront with its 30km stretch of waterfront in future, with even more public spaces for leisure activities.Register Your Interest For The Wallich Residence
