Architecture is the embodiment of a city’s ambition. It tells the story of its history, and of its transformation.
In every city, stands one tower that defines it. And makes everything that has come before, merely an exercise in anticipation of its arrival.
Wallich Residence stands at the heart of Tanjong Pagar, a historical and culturally-rich district. Today, it has evolved to become an integral part of Singapore’s Central Business District (CBD).

The first area in Singapore to be gazetted under the Government’s conservation plan, Tanjong Pagar is now home to a vibrant mix of cultural, retail and residential developments. Wallich Residence sits at the heart of a district that is on the cusp of

Wallich Residence Location
Tanjong Pagar plays a pivotal role in the transformation of one of the most exciting government land redevelopment projects in Singapore to date. The relocation of the nearby city terminals and ports has freed up nearly 1,000 hectares of land and provided immense opportunities to shape the future of the Greater Southern Waterfront, which will be the next waterfront city in Singapore.
By creating a seamless extension of the CBD along an uninterrupted 30km stretch of waterfront, this new promenade city will open up new live-work-play opportunities and foster community bonding, as well as becoming a catalyst for development and transformation in the area.
With its prime position in the district, Tanjong Pagar Centre is poised to become the gateway to this new waterfront city, and also as a conduit for Singapore’s continued growth
The perfect extension for Wallich Residence, Tanjong Pagar offers opportunities for work, live and play.
The district houses major organisations and companies such as the Monetary Authority of Singapore, Securities Investors Association (Singapore), GIC and Maxwell Chambers, making the area attractive to other multi-national companies of similar status, as well as smaller companies that want to connect within this elite hub.
The residential catchment area of the Tanjong Pagar district is expansive compared to the other parts of the CBD. With approximately 8,600 residential homes and 32,500 residents, the district bene ts from a large stable population that contributes to the vibrancy of the area, creating a lively atmosphere after office hours and on weekends. The Tanjong Pagar precinct also offers an exciting entertainment scene. Adjacent areas such as Duxton Hill, Ann Siang Hill and Peck Seah Street have a wide variety of popular bars, restaurants and cafes, while attractions, such as the Red Dot Design Museum, offer visitors a glimpse of the latest trends in international design.
The district also provides residents convenient access and connectivity to the rest of the city, via major highways such as the Marina Coastal Expressway and Ayer Rajah Expressway. Changi International Airport is a 16-minute drive, Marina Bay and Orchard Road a mere 4- and 8-minute drive respectively. Residents of Wallich Residence have direct access to the MRT network, with Tanjong Pagar MRT station situated directly beneath Tanjong Pagar Centre.
With such a wide range of possibilities, the hub of the CBD is set to shift, making Tanjong Pagar the new heart of the CBD.
Designed with nature and sustainability in mind, Wallich Residence has pride of place in a green building of the future. Tanjong Pagar Centre has been awarded the BCA Green Mark (Platinum) and achieved pre-certification for the prestigious Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) CS Platinum, while Wallich Residence has been awarded the BCA Green Mark (GoldPlus).
The existing greenery of the historic Tanjong Pagar Park has also been incorporated into the development, creating a welcome sanctuary for those who work and live in the area.
Located on Wallich Street, Wallich Residence bears the name of distinguished Danish surgeon and botanist Dr. Nathaniel Wallich, whose own legacy has contributed substantially to Singapore’s reputation as a Garden City.
His passion for the region’s rich flora and fauna mirrored that of Sir Stamford Raffles, a close friend and founder of modern Singapore. This culminated in the creation of the Botanic and Experimental Garden in 1822, the forerunner to the Singapore Botanic Gardens which received the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage Site accolade.
Dr. Wallich’s passion for botany and nature is carried through into the design of Wallich Residence. The botany theme is extended to social areas and landscape features, with plants originating from Dr. Wallich’s Botanical and Experimental Garden also found within the development. Staff uniforms even carry design motifs and accents with the same theme.
Forever intertwined with this historical legacy, Wallich Residence epitomises the importance of nature and the environment in creating one of the world’s most recognised green cities today.
