8 Shenton Way (Chinese: 八珊顿道;Chinese: Bā Shān Dùn Dǎo), formerly The Treasury and Temasek Tower, is the sixth tallest skyscraper in the city of Singapore, with at 234.7 m (770 ft). It is currently the tallest cylindrical building in the world. Built in 1986 as Treasury Building, it has 52 stories and is one of the prominent buildings in the business district. The tower houses 16 double deck elevators supplied by Otis. Singapore's present Prime Minister, Lee Hsien Loong, once had his office in the building. The building was renamed to Temasek Tower (Chinese: 淡马锡大厦) when the Ministry of Finance relocated to The Treasury on High Street. Advertising agency BBDO Worldwide hosts its Asia Pacific Headquarters in there.
- The structure consists of steel beams cantilevered from a cylindrical concrete core. This allows full 360° views at the perimeter, unobstructed by perimeter columns.
