Encouraged by the trust and confidence that buyers have placed in us, we are excited to bring our vision of this architectural icon to fruition. CanningHill Piers is truly a unique residential masterpiece that offers an exemplary design in an excellent location.

“Anyone who wants to own a residence in a history-packed site which sits right next to the Singapore River, should first speak to a mortgage consultant,” said Mr Ho.

With a myriad of Smart Home features and curated recreational facilities, this prime luxury residence is within one of the largest integrated redevelopment projects in the Central Area, with a gross floor area of 1.1 million sq ft. Scheduled for completion in 2025, CanningHill Piers is part of an integrated development that includes CanningHill Square with F&B and retail outlets, a 475-room hotel operated under the Moxy brand by Marriott International and a 192-unit serviced residence with a hotel licence operated under the Somerset brand, managed by The Ascott Limited.

Designed by Danish architecture firm Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), the project’s façade is artistically draped in an iconic geometric lattice that unifies the entire integrated development with a sculptural form. The 48-storey (180 metres) residential tower facing the riverside will be the tallest residential development along the Singapore River, while the 24-storey (100 metres) residential tower overlooks Fort Canning Hill. The two majestic towers are connected by a scenic sky bridge on Level 24 with spectacular views of the city, river and hill. Residents at CanningHill Piers will enjoy easy access via a direct link to Fort Canning MRT station and a short walk to Clarke Quay MRT station.

The CanningHill Piers sales gallery, located along Merchant Road, is open daily from 10.00 am to 7.00 pm, by appointment only.
