A 63-story, 305-m-tall mixed-use tower that is part of the redevelopment of former AXA Tower site at 8 Shenton Way in Singapore is set to become the country’s tallest building, Office Finder reports. Approved by Singapore’s Urban Redevelopment Authority, the height surpasses the 290-m height approved for Guocco Tower. Being developed by Alibaba and a consortium led by Perennial Holdings, the tower is set to rise opposite Tanjong Pagar Mass Rapid Transit station, along with a two-story podium housing stores and restaurants. On the drawing board are residential, hotel and office space, four basement levels and sky terraces. Office space would occupy more than half of the tower’s gross floor area (GFA) (1.6 million ft2), which the source observes is “a huge increase from the former AXA Tower’s GFA of 1.03 million ft2.”
