CapitaLand Limited (CapitaLand) and City Developments Limited (CDL) on Thursday (August 19) unveiled the design of their latest joint residential development in Singapore. CanningHill Piers, located between Fort Canning Hill and Singapore River in District 6, boasts a rare hill and rival frontage, and is directly linked to Fort Canning MRT station on the Downtown Line and right beside F&B and lifestyle destination Clarke Quay.
The development is part of an integrated development that also includes a commercial component with F&B and retail outlets named CanningHill Square, a hotel operated under the Moxy brand by Marriott International and a serviced residence with a hotel licence operated under the Somerset brand.
The design scheme comprises four towers of different heights – a pair of diagonally-facing residential towers and one each for the hotel and serviced residence – set atop a double-storey commercial podium. All four towers are distinctly spaced apart from each other to maximize views and allow the courtyard at the heart of the commercial podium to open to the sky.

At 180 metres, the 48-storey residential tower facing the riverside will be the tallest residential development along the Singapore River, while the 24-storey residential tower overlooking Fort Canning Hill stands at 100 metres. Housing a total of 696 units, the two residential towers are connected by an iconic sky bridge on Level 24, filled with a wide range of lifestyle facilities such as the Sky Gym, Infinity Lap Pool, Sky Gourmet, Flexi Lounge and Function Room offering unobstructed views of Fort Canning Hill, Singapore River, the Central Business District (CBD), Marina Bay and beyond.
Targeted for completion in 2025, CanningHill Piers is designed by Danish architecture firm Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) led by Bjarke Ingels, a world-renowned architect who is behind award-winning residential developments such as 8 House in Copenhagen and Via 57 West in New York. BIG is also the design architect for CapitaSpring, a soon-to-be-completed 51-storey integrated development by CapitaLand Group in Singapore’s Raffles Place CBD.
