A unique mixed-use development
CanningHill Piers Overview
CanningHill Piers will take over the former Liang Court District, located in Singapore's prime district 6 and heart.
District 6 is widely known for being both a business and leisure hotspot. Therefore future residents of CanningHill Piers can enjoy the best of both worlds within the neighbourhood. Destinations and activities suitable for day till night, professional to recreational, city and nature, surround CanningHill Piers, waiting to be explored. The dual frontage of the river and hill is a rare advantage in Singapore especially. This highlight thus brings out more of CanningHill Piers' charms. Moreover, Fort Canning MRT Station is right on their doorstep, seamlessly connecting residents to the rest of Singapore too.
The area of the whole site is 12,925.4 square metres, and it has a 99-year leasehold. CanningHill Piers offers a wide range of apartments, from 1-5 bedroom apartments to Sky Suites and Super Penthouse. This exciting development is estimated to open its doors by 2024.
The CanningHill Piers is a unique mixed-use development, comprising of:
- 2 Residential towers (one block of 48 storeys and another block of 24 storeys, 696 units total) with deluxe condominium facilities
- 21 storey Moxy Hotel (477 guest rooms), operated by Marriott International
- 20 storey Serviced residence with hotel licence (192 guest rooms owned by Ascott Reit)
- 2 storey commercial podium, managed by CapitaMall
- 4 storey basement carpark with commercial at Basement 1
Developers of CanningHill Piers are the reputable and experienced CapitaLand and City Developments Limited. This joint venture is carried out in equal shares. CapitaLand is one of Asia’s largest real estate companies and investment management businesses. In total, CapitaLand has 9 residential developments in Singapore so far. The Group assures to deliver their projects with the utmost quality.
Similarly, City Developments Limited is a leading global real estate operating company with a network spanning 100 locations in 28 countries and regions. In addition, it has over 50 years of experience in the field and a solid development pipeline in Singapore and many overseas markets. With such strong industry leaders developing the condominium, it will surely be promising.
Furthermore, CanningHill Piers is designed by renowned Danish architecture firm Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG). They have an extensive portfolio that won multiple awards, such as the 8 House in Copenhagen and VIA 57 West in New York.
The firm is led by Bjarke Ingels, one of the most inspirational of our time, often producing expressive and elegant works. He has received numerous awards and honors, including the Danish Crown Prince's Culture Prize in 2011, the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale in 2004, and the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Award for Excellence in 2009. In 2011, The Wall Street Journal awarded him the Architectural Innovator of the Year Award, and in 2016, Time named him one of the 100 most influential people in the world today.
We can look forward to the exciting new design of CanningHill Piers, which, in the near future, will be a new landmark along the Singapore River, as the Liang Court, the former architecture, has fallen out of date.

CanningHill Piers have the most strategic location beside an MRT Station. Fort Canning MRT station, serving the Downtown Line, is only a short 2 minutes walk away. A little further away, approximately 9 minutes walk, is the Clarke Quay MRT station (North East Line). With these 2 MRT lines in the vicinity, residents can enjoy the efficiency of other MRT lines too. For instance, Chinatown, Dhoby Ghaut, Outram Park, Little India, HarbourFront, Bayfront and more are interchange stations that are just a few stops away. Furthermore, there is also an upcoming Thomson East Coast Line station, Great World, in the vicinity, adding even more value to this prestigious location.

By road, the major expressways are also within minutes' drive; 3 minutes drive to Central Expressway (CTE), 5 minutes to Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE), and 9 minutes to East Coast Parkway (ECP). Travelling via public or private transport will be a breeze.
In addition, residents can also experience a fun and unique transportation mode, which is the river taxi that stops just by the Fort Canning, connecting all the way to the Esplanade via Clarke Quay and Boat Quay. Another mode of transport residents can consider is cycling, especially for those working in the CBD. It is a healthy and eco friendly option.
It takes around 6 minutes by train to get to Bayfront Station. Therefore, the estimated time to get to the Central Business District (CBD) is less than 10 minutes by train. By car, it will take around 10 minutes too.
One North is an easy 10 minutes ride away. It is a research and business park that houses many technologies and innovative international companies and research institutes. For instance, it comprises R&D hubs like Biopolis, Fusionopolis, The Star (a mall and a performing arts centre) and Rochester Park. One North aims to foster a work-live-play-learn environment through integrating various lifestyle amenities with schools, community and, of course, the industry-centric hubs. Moreover, big companies like Grab and Razer recently have their headquarters built there too. Meanwhile, a new Dover Knowledge District, an extension to one-north, will be created. It is a mixed-used site and contains business parks, academic and research institutions.
This strategic location will entice anyone working in these areas, especially professionals working in the CBD.
Prestigious and award-winning preschools like Cambridge Preschool and EtonHouse Pre-School are 8-minute walk away, a relatively comfortable walking distance.
As for primary school, River Valley Primary School is within the 1 km distance from the development.
There are several secondary schools some distance away. School of the Arts (SOTA) is the nearest school, only around an 11 minutes bus ride away. LASALLE College of the Arts, a post-secondary and soon to be university, is around 15 bus ride away, which is still very convenient.
University is the highlight of CanningHill Piers’ location, education-wise. There are many reputable art and design schools in town. For instance, MAD School, 3dsense Media School and FZD School of Design are highly sought after design schools in Asia. Meanwhile, The School of Positive Psychology and Singapore Management University (SMU) are in the neighbourhood too. Residents studying in these prestigious universities will definitely enjoy the short distance from school to home.

Situated along a vibrant lifestyle hot spot, residents of CanningHill Piers get to enjoy all the fantastic food and leisure spots right at their doorstep. Of course, there are many famous restaurants right at Clarke Quay and the malls nearby, but CHIJMES is another popular hotspot for Singaporeans to eat, drink, chill, and take Instagram worthy photos too! This food spot mainly consists of bars and restaurants. All this good stuff is only a good 15 minutes stroll or 5 minutes drive away. Next, introducing Chinatown food cluster that mainly has popular coffee shop stalls and restaurants. Chinatown is famously known for its good food. People all over the country are willing to travel just for food here, but residents will only need a good 6 minutes drive. Lastly, the ever so famous Tiong Bahru Cafe cluster. It is popular not just for its rich cultural and picture-worthy landscape but also because they serve delicious food there.
The nearest supermarket is Cold Storage @UE Square so far, which is a few minutes walk away. The good news is that the 2 levels of commercial space are likely to include a supermarket and definitely plenty of dining and shopping outlets. If residents are feeling lazy, they can go downstairs and grab something they need.
There will always come the point when residents are sick of the food nearby. Still, the overwhelming amount and variety of dining places around the site will give residents too many options that they may even have a hard time deciding. Clarke Quay is in the middle of the Singapore River Lifestyle Corridor. Therefore residents can travel to both Robertson Quay and Boat Quay conveniently. There are loads of entertainment spots such as speciality cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, clubs, alfresco dining, wine bars and art houses.

CanningHill Piers Site Plan
There is no place quite like CanningHill Piers. On one side lies glittering Singapore River. On the other side, the verdant tranquillity of Fort Canning Hill provides the perfect foil. Beyond its unmatched position overlooking two of Singapore’s historic sites, this new luxury residence, being the tallest residential tower along Singapore River, is set to be a landmark.
There are 3 levels of facility decks located at level 3, 24 and 45.
With its rugged landscaping and open-air fitness facilities at level 3, you can catch your vitamin D in between exercises here. Test your limits at the Bouldering Wall or the Rope Climb, beat the clock at the 300m Outdoor Jogging Track. Get the kids in to have some fun at Splash Play.
It doesn't matter which level you stay, you can always go to the sky park to enjoy the magnificent view of Singapore River or the Hill.
Level 24 is spanning two towers and filled with wellness and relaxation facilities from end to end. Start your day with brisk laps in the Infinity Lap Pool, and wind down at the Infinity Lounge Pool come sunset. At the Yoga Deck or the Sky Gym and Power Gym, set your eyes on the horizon and push on to a new record
If you need a quiet spot to think or to pen down your thoughts, there’s always the Flexi Lounge or the Flexi Pods, both equipped with WiFi and charging points. Housing a co-working space, the Flexi Lounge is also where the Residential Services Reception is located so assistance is readily on hand.
Entertain in style in an unforgettable setting high above the city. The clubhouse at level 45 gives you the pick of two well-appointed lounges equipped with a kitchenette as well as an island counter.

Some thoughts on CanningHill Piers
Mr Sherman Kwek, CDL Group Chief Executive Officer said: “After our recent sales success at Sengkang Grand Residences, we are honoured to be partnering CapitaLand on yet another integrated development that will redefine Clarke Quay, one of Singapore’s most exciting entertainment precincts. With multiple frontages, breathtaking views and convenient access to Fort Canning MRT Station, the Liang Court site has outstanding locational attributes for an integrated development comprising residential, commercial, hotel and serviced residence components. By harnessing the strengths and capabilities of all the partners involved, we plan to transform the site into an iconic landmark along the Singapore River.”
Opportunities to own a piece in such a prime site is hard to come by. Investors should try to get a share if budget allows.
CanningHill Piers is estimated to be launched in Q4 2021.
CanningHill Piers is 99 years lease hold.
Fort Canning MRT station, Downtown Line, is only a short 2 minutes walk away.
