Wallich Residence. Whenever people ask me what I think about this majestic property, I reply them in a single word; “grandeur”.

But, that’s about all I know about this building.

Just click on the topic you need more information about if you’re already familiar with Wallich Residence.

Trust me; once you finish reading, you’re going to fall in love with the property (just like how I did).

Let’s start with the first section, more on the basic details about the not-so-basic Wallich Residence.

Wallich Residence details

So, remember how I said it’s the tallest residential building in Singapore?

The residential units start from the 39th to the 64th floor. You can find Wallich Residence right above Tanjong Pagar MRT and on top of Guoco Tower.

Move over Marina Bay Sands.

You could probably get an equally great view of Singapore, or better (psst, there’s an observation deck on the 62nd floor).

Its architects are from A61. They weren’t playing around when they built it to exemplify grand living in the heart of the Central Business District (CBD) from the outside.

The ones responsible for beautifying the interior and turning it into a luxurious abode are designers from Wilson Associates. Here’s a sneak peek:

A work of art huh?

The 99-year tenure property is an integrated development, making it a convenient one-stop-shop for most of your daily necessities and a destination for entertainment and relaxation.

Note: The Temporary Occupation Permit (TOP) date is 31 December 2019.

Shawn’s one-liner perfectly explains the developer’s ambition for this magnificent residence:

“It transforms Tanjong Pagar Centre into a new heartbeat of the CBD with its dynamic mix of commercial, retail and residential elements.”

I don’t know about you, but it’ll be a dream if I could be part of that.

Next, let’s dive into where it’s located and how it’s very convenient.

Wallich Residence location

As they say, location is everything (well, it is at least to me).

Here’s the exact address where Wallich Residence is; 3 Wallich St, Singapore.

As mentioned previously, the property sits at the centre of Tanjong Pagar. If you’re like me who goes to work around the area, that’s a huge bonus.

The MRT is literally below your house, so if public transport is your choice for the commute, it doesn’t get any easier. And since it’s an integrated development, you can get your daily necessities below too.

If you’re a bum like me, say hello to convenience.

Shawn did a neat picture showing how near famous landmarks are, here’s what it looks like:

Wallich Residence location and what's nearby

Shawn also shared some predictions himself:

“Wallich residence is like a long-term investment with high potential and vision of Tanjong Pagar district because of the planned Greater Southern Waterfront over the next 15 years.”

Doesn’t it look great? The bragging rights don’t just stop at how high up your potential home might be; your location is gold.

If the location sold you, let’s get to the exciting part; the condominium’s facilities.

Wallich Residence condo amenities

Ok, so get ready for a jaw-drop.
