Guoco Tower, formerly known as the Tanjong Pagar Centre, is a S$3.2 billion mixed-use development located in Tanjong Pagar, Singapore. With a height of 290 m (950 ft), it is the tallest building in Singapore, breaking the record held jointly by UOB Plaza, One Raffles Place and Republic Plaza for more than 20 years.
Completed in 2016, the 64-storey, 1.7 million sq ft skyscraper was developed by GuocoLand and designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. It is the headquarters of Guocoland Limited and is the only skyscraper exempted from the height restriction of 280 m. Guoco Tower houses the rooftop Urban Park, the Wallich Residence apartment complex, and a hotel by Sofitel Hotels & Resorts.
The development won the 2014 World Architecture News Mixed-Use Award in the Future Projects category, and was shortlisted for the 2015 World Architecture Festival Commercial Mixed-Use Award in the Future Projects category.
