This is the 774-unit tower duo taking over Singapore’s iconic Pearl Bank apartments

This is the 774-unit tower duo taking over Singapore’s iconic Pearl Bank apartments.

The developer who bought over one of Singapore’s most iconic apartment buildings has unveiled new artist impressions of the development that will replace the 43-year-old Pearl Bank Apartments.

On Tuesday (May 14), CapitaLand released images of what its One Pearl Bank is slated to look like when it is completed in 2023.

Designed by multi award-winning architecture firm Serie+Multiply, the new 178-metre development takes on a curved shape that’s somewhat reminiscent of the original cylindrical Pearl Bank Apartments.

In a statement, CapitaLand said One Pearl Bank will house 774 apartment units – of various sizes ranging from 430 sq ft to 2,800 sq ft – in two 39-storey towers.

This is almost 3 times more than the old Pearl Bank Apartments, which housed 280 units in 38 storeys.

The buildings will be linked at the roof by sky bridges overlooking the Outram-Chinatown district of Singapore.
