Here's more from Savills:

As Singapore continues to evolve as a cosmopolitan city where heritage meets urban chic, Tanjong Pagar is fast transforming into a vibrant and popular destination for creative office spaces, swanky boutique hotels and celebrity chefs. In addition to the many new residential developments such as the Pinnacle@ Duxton, an integrated development Tanjong Pagar site, and Eon at Shenton, the quaint Tanjong Pagar is starting to stir, fast overtaking their glitzy neighbors like Club Street and Ann Siang Hill to become the precinct that never sleeps.

Tanjong Pagar is a well manicured district of historic shophouses juxtaposed with modern edifices. With the nearby docklands slated for relocation in 2026, to be replaced by low rise, sea fronting, residential developments, the area will begin to experience a sea of change expected to elevate both investment values and business activity. As more professionals strive to “work hard, play harder’, Tanjong Pagar is well positioned and aligned with the lifestyle trend towards living, working and playing in the city.

Senior Director of Lifestyle and Retail Savills Singapore, Sulian Tan-Wijaya says that Tanjong Pagar has truly evolved and transformed into a hip, colorful and exciting precinct where the rapid growth of office and residential developments have been matched by the proliferation of boutique hotels, Michelin Star and celebrity chef restaurants; trendy bars and cafes. “The main attraction for Tanjong Pagar is its quaint conservation shophouses juxtaposed with modern skyscrapers. It is this meld of contrasts that draws the crowd in-a playground that serves their needs day and night, whether at work, play or even at home” she said.
