Shaw Tower’s Redevelopment To Be Overseen By Lendlease

SINGAPORE – Australia’s Lendlease is set to oversee the redevelopment of Shaw Tower, a disused building in Beach Road, as the property’s owner wants to leverage on the company’s capabilities on property development, project management, and asset management, reported The Edge on Thursday afternoon (29 October).

Lendlease clinched the role after it was appointed by Shaw Tower’s owner, The Sir Run Run Shaw Charitable Trust.

Offering breath-taking views over the city and Marina Bay, the upcoming building with a height of almost 200 metres will come with 35 storeys of Premium Grade office space measuring a total of 450,000 sq ft. Moreover, its office component will come with indoor community facilities plus an outdoor amphitheatre.

The mixed-use project will also feature retail outlets such as cafés and restaurants on the first level.

Aside from that, the integrated development will be connected to nearby buildings like Guoco Midtown. It will also be linked to South Beach via overhead bridges on the 2nd floor. Apart from having end-of-trip cycling facilities, the new Shaw Tower is just a stroll away from the Bugis MRT Interchange Station.

Construction work is poised to start later in 2020, as the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) has granted Preliminary Planning Permission for the redevelopment, which is anticipated to be finished by 2024.

“As the original Shaw Tower had achieved in the 1970s, the new Shaw Tower will set leading international design standards whilst respecting the heritage and local context of this key city location,” added Shaw Group’s Managing Director in Hong Kong Raymond Chan.
