BIG, CapitaLand and CDL unveil design for CanningHill Piers residential complex in Singapore

First images have been revealed for a new residential complex in Singapore designed by BIG and developed by City Developments Limited (CDL), CapitaLand Limited (CapitaLand) and Ascott Residence Trust (Ascott Reit).

Called CanningHill Piers, the 100,263-square-metre development was officially announced on CanningHill Piers' website with all details. 

Released with two renderings, BIG's new design will comprise four towers reaching at different heights – a pair of diagonally-facing residential towers will be dedicated to residential units, while other two towers will be used for the hotel and serviced residences – all set atop a double-story commercial podium. 

CanningHill Piers, set to be built between Fort Canning Hill and Singapore River in District 6, will house around 700 apartments - on the two residential towers, commercial units, a hotel, which will be operated under the Moxy brand by Marriott International, serviced residences with a hotel licence which will be operated under the Somerset brand, and a basement car park. 

All four towers will have distinctly spaced apart from each other to grasp mazximum views and allow the courtyard at the heart of the commercial podium, to open to the sky.

Two residential towers will be connected by a sky bridge on 24th floor, filled with a wide range of lifestyle facilities and offering unobstructed views of Fort Canning Hill, Singapore River, the Central Business District (CBD), Marina Bay, and beyond. 

One of the residential tower will have 48 storey reaching at 180 metres, facing the riverside will be the tallest residential development along the Singapore River, while the 24-storey residential tower overlooking Fort Canning Hill will stand at 100 metres.

BIG's project will transform the former development on the site comprising Novotel hotel, Liang Court Mall, and Somerset Liang Court’s serviced residences.

Once the project is complete, CapitaLand will own the commercial and residential units while 192 units of serviced residence with a hotel license will be under Ascott Reit.

In addition, CDLHT is set to own the hotel featuring between 460 and 470 rooms on a forward purchase agreement with CDL.

Residential units will cover 60,158 square meters, 11,530 square meters of the complex will be dedicated to commercial units, and 15,541 square meters will be used for hotel, while serviced residences will cover a total of 13,034 square meters.
