CROSSROADS OF MANY WORLDS.
The history of Singapore is inextricably linked to that of the Singapore River.
From the moment Sir Stamford Raffles stepped foot at its mouth, the British transformed a small fishing village and settlement into a free trading port and changed the fortune of Singapore forever.
Along its banks, immigrants from China, India and other nearby countries flocked here in search of a better fortune. Built in 1823, Boat Quay served as a commercial centre for barges to transport goods upstream to the warehouses at Clarke Quay and Robertson Quay along the Singapore River. Commerce and trading flourished along the jetties and piers, paving the way for greater financial success.
In 1977, an ambitious project to clean up the Singapore River gave the river a much-needed makeover and 10 years later, schools of fish have returned to its waters.
The result was a clean and sparkling river, flanked by a 6km promenade and river wall. Even the old quays and warehouses were metamorphosed into entertainment and retail zones, offering a multi-sensory lifestyle experience that continues to beckon even till today, transforming the Singapore River precinct into an exciting waterfront lifestyle destination.
当年史丹福 • 莱佛士爵士在新加坡河口登陆的那一刻，就注定了新加坡的未来。英国人将这个只是小渔村的殖民地变成自由贸易港，永远改变了新加坡的命运。
A New Riverside Lifestyle
The centrepiece of the rejuvenated Singapore River will soon be unveiled with the launch of CanningHill Piers.
Designed by world-renowned BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group architecture practice, CanningHill Piers is primely located on the site of the former Liang Court next to the vibrant Clarke Quay. This highly anticipated redevelopment will be reborn as an iconic integrated development, which will set new standards in riverfront living. Comprising two towers of luxury residences, a new concept hotel, serviced residence and CanningHill Square, featuring F&B and retail shops, CanningHill Piers will epitomise what riverside city living is all about.
With rare dual frontage of both Singapore River and Fort Canning Hill, its unique location affords residents stunning views of the CBD and Marina Bay financial districts, a riverside promenade and access to two MRT lines at Fort Canning and Clarke Quay MRT Stations, and easy connectivity to the historic Fort Canning Park.

由世界著名建筑事务所BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group设计的康宁河湾，坐落于前亮阁旧址上，毗邻生机勃勃的克拉码头。这个备受期待的重建计划将以标志性的综合开发项目再度亮相，为河滨生活树立新标杆。 康宁河湾由两座豪华公寓塔楼、一座新概念酒店、酒店式公寓，以及集餐饮与零售为特色的康宁坊(CanningHill Square)组成，体现河滨城市生活的全方位理念。
A GREEN CITY OF PARKS
Once, the highest natural point of the old port city and sacred site of regional royalty and later a military fort, Fort Canning Park has undergone delicate preservation and sensitive enhancements with family-friendly Jubilee Park and its play gardens, discovery rain gardens, see saw logs, trampolines and hillside slides.
In addition, the Foothills, an extension of Fort Canning Park, features F&B offering and flexible event spaces, adding even more vibrancy to this elevated green lung area.
Longer term considerations are also in the works to create a continuous hill-to-hill connection from Fort Canning Park to Pearl’s Hill City Park by Chinatown via the Singapore River.
福康宁公园曾经是旧港口城市的天然制高点及本区皇家圣地，还一度成为军事堡垒。经过一番精心维护及修复之后，现今的福康宁公园拥有适合一家大小的 Jubilee 公园及其游乐花园、Discovery Rain花园、木头翘翘板、蹦床及山坡滑梯。
TRANSFORMING THE OLD AND REDEFINING THE NEW
With so much to enjoy today and even more to look forward to, CanningHill Piers is the perfect nexus of hillside and riverfront living – and an exciting next chapter of the Singapore River story.
