CanningHill Piers by Bjarke Ingels Group

Located between the historic Fort Canning Hill and the iconic Singapore River in District 6, the project was named to reflect its rare hill and river dual-frontage. The project is the only residential development in Singapore complemented by these two nature elements in its immediate surroundings. Boasting excellent connectivity, the development is directly linked to Fort Canning MRT station on the Downtown Line, and right beside F&B and lifestyle destination Clarke Quay.

Integrated Development

The landmark residence is part of an integrated development that also includes a commercial component with F&B and retail outlets, a hotel and a serviced residence. The design scheme comprises four towers of different heights—a pair of diagonally-facing residential towers and one each for the hotel and serviced residence—set atop a double-storey commercial podium.

All four towers are distinctly spaced apart from each other to maximise views and allow the courtyard at the heart of the commercial podium to open to the sky. A single continuous drape adorning the façade ties the various components together into an iconic and sculptural whole. Strategic parts of the façade drape are lifted to unveil building entrances, communal areas and green spaces at various heights, creating a strong and unified architectural identity for the integrated development.

Connectivity with the Surrounding

Part of an existing road that currently separates the CanningHill Piers project site and the river will be transformed into an attractive riverfront promenade that connects seamlessly with the vibrant Clarke Quay lifestyle precinct along the same stretch. Drawing inspiration from its surroundings, the landscaping of CanningHill Piers extends the lush greenery of Fort Canning Hill to its various sky terraces. In the future, residents can look forward to hiking from Fort Canning Park to Pearl’s Hill City Park through the scenic Singapore River, as part of the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s Master Plan 2019.
