At 178 m high, One Pearl Bank is set to be the tallest residential development in the Outram-Chinatown district of Singapore, offering panoramic views that extend from the central business district to Sentosa. It is scheduled for completion in 2023.
Designed by Serie+Multiply, a joint venture between London-based Serie Architects and Singapore-based Multiply Architects, One Pearl Bank will feature 39-storey towers linked at the roof by sky bridges, with a total of 774 apartments. It will also have a series of sky allotment gardens arrayed vertically at one edge of each tower.
With each tower featuring an allotment garden every four storeys, and each garden housing 11 plots, One Pearl Bank will have a total of 18 sky allotment gardens with close to 200 plots where residents can grow their own herbs, fruits and vegetables. These allotment gardens are intended not only to support urban farming, but also provide spaces to promote community bonding.
The allotment gardens are further complemented by two sky terraces and two roof gardens across the two towers and a sunken planter in every balcony, to maximise the greenery on the development’s facade.
Taking full advantage of Pearl’s Hill’s sloped typography, the two towers are lifted 21 m off the ground to allow a visual continuity flowing from the greenery of Pearl’s Hill City Park to the upcoming green connector to Fort Canning Park.
According to CapitaLand, over 500 trees across 35 species and more than 135,000 shrubs, plants and flowers will be planted throughout One Pearl Bank, occupying over 60,000 sq ft of space – equivalent to 75% of the total site area.
