SINGAPORE THE GLOBAL CITY
As the new heart of Asia, Singapore is renowned for a quality of life and an exceptional work environment. Diverse and cosmopolitan, yet with the security and political stability of a modern, thriving economy; Singapore is the perfect blend of Asian roots and a Western outlook, where culture and history are effortlessly integrated with innovation and progress.
Now ranked as the No. 1 city in the world with the best investment potential* and voted as one of the world’s most liveable cities**, Singapore’s strategic location makes it a global hub for business and tourism with a world-class financial, healthcare, transportation, and logistics infrastructure backbone. Adding to the character of the city is its reputation as the culinary capital of Asia, with the renowned Michelin Guide producing Singapore’s first list of Michelin-starred restaurants in 2016.
As the gateway to Asia, Singapore’s reign as the leading business, lifestyle and cultural hub of Asia remains firmly unchallenged.
A STORIED HISTORY
Wallich Residence stands at the heart of Tanjong Pagar, a historical and culturally-rich district. Today, it has evolved to become an integral part of Singapore’s Central Business District (CBD).
Tanjong Pagar has played an important role in Singapore’s political history and is best known for being the electoral ward of Singapore’s founding father Mr. Lee Kuan Yew.
The first area in Singapore to be gazetted under the Government’s conservation plan, Tanjong Pagar is now home to a vibrant mix of cultural, retail and residential developments. Wallich Residence sits at the heart of a district that is on the cusp of exciting transformation.
WHERE CHANGE IS THE ONLY CONSTANT
Tanjong Pagar plays a pivotal role in the transformation of one of the most exciting government land redevelopment projects in Singapore to date. The relocation of the nearby city terminals and ports has freed up nearly 1,000 hectares of land and provided immense opportunities to shape the future of the Greater Southern Waterfront, which will be the next waterfront city in Singapore.
By creating a seamless extension of the CBD along an uninterrupted 30km stretch of waterfront, this new promenade city will open up new live-work-play opportunities and foster community bonding, as well as becoming a catalyst for development and transformation in the area.
With its prime position in the district, Tanjong Pagar Centre is poised to become the gateway to this new waterfront city, and also as a conduit for Singapore’s continued growth and prosperity.
THE LIFESTYLE HUB OF THE CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT
The perfect extension for Wallich Residence, Tanjong Pagar offers opportunities for work, live and play.
The district houses major organisations and companies such as the Monetary Authority of Singapore, Securities Investors Association (Singapore), GIC and Maxwell Chambers, making the area attractive to other multi-national companies of similar status, as well as smaller companies that want to connect within this elite hub.
The residential catchment area of the Tanjong Pagar district is expansive compared to the other parts of the CBD. With approximately 8,600 residential homes and 32,500 residents, the district benefits from a large stable population that contributes to the vibrancy of the area, creating a lively atmosphere after office hours and on weekends. The Tanjong Pagar precinct also offers an exciting entertainment scene. Adjacent areas such as Duxton Hill, Ann Siang Hill and Peck Seah Street have a wide variety of popular bars, restaurants and cafes, while attractions, such as the Red Dot Design Museum, offer visitors a glimpse of the latest trends in international design.
The district also offers residents convenient access and connectivity to the rest of the city, via major highways such as the Marina Coastal Expressway and Ayer Rajah Expressway. Changi International Airport is a 16-minute drive, Marina Bay and Orchard Road a mere 4- and 8-minute drive respectively. Residents of Wallich Residence have direct access to the MRT network, with Tanjong Pagar MRT station situated directly beneath Tanjong Pagar Centre.
With such a wide range of possibilities, the hub of the CBD is set to shift, making Tanjong Pagar the new heart of the CBD.
