CapitaLand unveils rooftop garden design for 39 storey One Pearl Bank towers
About 18 gardens with 200 plots in total will be arrayed vertically at one edge of each tower.
CapitaLand will add 18 sky allotment gardens to its 178-metre One Pearl Bank development, an announcement revealed. The development’s two 39-storey towers will have sky allotment gardens every four storeys arrayed vertically at one edge of each tower.
Moreover, the gardens will house 11 plots each, translating to a total of 200 plots in which residents can grow their own herbs, fruits, and vegetables. These allotment gardens will also have two sky terraces and two roof gardens across the two towers and a sunken planter in every balcony.
The gardens are part of the overall design of One Pearl Bank, which the company said, “elevates the concept of high-rise living with a total of 774 apartments.” Unit types ranging from studio apartments to penthouses will soon be made available, with sizes ranging from approximately 430 to 2,800 sqft.
The two towers are lifted 21 metres from the ground to allow a visual continuity flowing from the greenery of Pearl’s Hill City Park to the upcoming green connector to Fort Canning Park. Over 500 trees across 35 species and more than 135,000 shrubs, plants and flowers will be planted throughout One Pearl Bank, occupying over 60,000 sqft of space – equivalent to 75% of the total site area.
One Pearl Bank is a three-minute walk via a sheltered linkway from Outram MRT Station, a triple-line interchange station serving the East-West Line, North-East Line and upcoming Thomson-East Coast Line. It is also linked to two highways, namely Central Expressway and Ayer Rajah Expressway.
One Pearl Bank is scheduled for completion in 2023.
