8 Shenton Way will anchor the intersection of Singapore’s Central Business District and Marina Bay, the historic Tanjong Pagar neighborhood, and the emerging Greater Southern Waterfront. With expansive public spaces, offices, retail, hotel, and luxury residences offering unparalleled panoramic views south-facing of the South China Sea, the heritage district to the North, and proximity to the Tanjong Pagar district, known for its Michelin-recommended restaurants, 8 Shenton Way will be a vibrant, 24/7 hub.
Designed with a holistic view of sustainability in mind, including post-pandemic features and wellness considerations, 8 Shenton Way is committed to secure the Building Construction Authority of Singapore Green Mark Platinum certification, one of the highest sustainability standards in the industry which mandates an energy saving of 55% as compared to the benchmark. Apart from energy efficiency, the building is designed to attain water efficiency through minimising water usage by harvesting rainwater for irrigation of the expansive green spaces, as well as the installation of water-efficient fittings that comply with Singapore’s Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards rating.
The 63-storey landmark mixed-use integrated development also seeks to minimise embodied and operational carbon through measures such as reusing 100% of the existing foundation and part of the existing infrastructure. It will also make use of sustainable building materials, such as Singapore Green Building Council-certified materials where available. Additionally, it will integrate environment factors in design planning, including orientating the building to capture prevailing winds for optimal ventilation and natural light, as well as blending in sun-shading fins on the façade to reduce heat. With vast outdoor green spaces, featuring verdant gardens and sky terraces across the verticality of the building, measuring over 10,000 square metres which exceed the footprint of the entire site by over 20%, building users can enjoy an abundance of fresh air, open space and sunlight.
8 Shenton Way will connect to Singapore’s subterranean pedestrian network, including direct underground connectivity to the Tanjong Pagar Mass Rapid Transit (“MRT”) station, as well as three additional MRT stations within a five-minute walk: the Shenton Way MRT Station and Maxwell MRT Station, which serve the Thomson-East Coast Line, and the Prince Edward Road MRT Station, which will close the loop between Harbourfront and Marina Bay MRT stations on the Circle Line in 2026. Together with bicycle and electric vehicle parking, 8 Shenton Way will provide for a myriad of sustainable modes of transport for the vibrant community, positioning the mixed-use integrated development as an ideal work, live and play destination in the heart of the city.
8 Shenton Way, designed by American architecture firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), together with Singapore architecture firm DCA Architects, is slated for completion in 2028.
