CapitaLand has unveiled the highly-anticipated design of One Pearl Bank perched atop the verdant Pearl’s Hill. The development comprises two gently curving 39-storey towers linked at the roof by dramatic sky bridges. The slender, curved facades create a light and airy effect, providing ample space for residents and onlookers to look out and through the towers to admire the stunning views atop the hill. Towering at 178 metres, One Pearl Bank will be the tallest residential development in the Outram-Chinatown district in Central Singapore, offering panoramic views that extend from the Central Business District to Sentosa.
Designed by multi award-winning Serie+Multiply, a joint venture between London-based Serie Architects and Singapore-based Multiply Architects, the new scheme elevates the concept of high-rise living with a total of 774 apartments. It will support more urbanites in leading their dream city lifestyles at this prime location, in line with the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s vision to develop more homes in Singapore’s Central Area. A wide selection of unit types from studio apartments to penthouses, ranging in size from approximately 430 to 2,800 sq ft, will be made available.
Adding to its allure, One Pearl Bank will feature a world-first – 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. The beautifully-appointed allotment gardens not only support urban farming, they offer spaces to promote community bonding. Visible from the city centre, they make a powerful visual statement on One Pearl Bank’s biophilic design that integrates nature to enrich residents’ quality of life. These 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.

CapitaLand is giving its shoppers a new reason to rediscover the joys of experiential shopping with NomadX (pronounced as “Nomads”) — Singapore’s first “phygital” multi-label concept store offering a new blend of physical and digital experience.
Be it a gamified onboarding process, automated store assistance such as smart mirrors, interactive product walls or the cashless payment experience, NomadX is designed for shoppers to enjoy shopping intrinsically as a social activity — one of sensation, discovery, immediate gratification and convenience.
NomadX occupies 11,000 square feet of space spread across two floors in Plaza Singapura, with an attractive frontage facing Orchard Road. The multi-label retail destination is now officially open with a curated selection of 18 tenants offering a wide range of fashion, beauty, consumer electronics, gadgets and food & beverage offerings. These include the first physical outlets in Singapore for Alibaba’s Taobao, as well as that of online fashion businesses Digital Fashion Week, evenodd, Révolte and Style Theory.
New-to-market brands include audio products specialist JBL and restaurant Bizen Okayama Wagyu Steakhouse by Aston Soon. Shoppers can also look forward to limited editions of well-known brands at NomadX, including the highly-anticipated Karl Lagerfeld’s K/Klassik Pins collection.
To ensure maximum flexibility for tenants to push the boundaries, NomadX incorporates short-term leases and “plug & play” retail units that are integrated with smart retail infrastructure. Tenants set up temporary homes like nomads – thus the inspiration for the store’s name – that are demarcated by modular panels and equipped with interactive technologies to encourage product discovery and play. The store’s fluid layout and data analytics capabilities make NomadX a suitable testbed for retailers to trial new concepts and products and respond swiftly to consumer reception and feedback.

CapitaSpring will also be home to Singapore’s highest urban farm and a fine-dining restaurant on the rooftop at around 280-metres-high.
Harnessing some of the latest Internet of Things and artificial intelligence technologies, robots and sensors – executives will be securely and seamlessly connected to their offices through an all-in-one lifestyle app. CapitaSpring will also allow tenants more flexibility in space planning with the option of inter-floor network connectivity, expansive column-free floor plates as well as one of the tallest floor-to-ceiling heights of 3.2 metres in the CBD. With a prime location in the downtown core, CapitaSpring will have excellent connectivity island-wide, with sheltered access to three train lines via Raffles Place MRT interchange and Telok Ayer MRT station as well as major expressways. CapitaSpring will also have a cycling path in its perimeter, 165 bicycle lots and well-equipped end-of-trip facilities, complementing the government’s strategy for a car-lite Singapore.
Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group, in collaboration with Carlo Ratti Associati, CapitaSpring will also comprise a 299-unit Citadines serviced residence managed by The Ascott Limited, ancillary retail space, as well as a food centre located on the second and third levels of the development.
