I estimate this will be about 130-140m tall (The 46 floor ICON is 163m).

The design seems vaguely like 1 Moulmein Rise.

Haha..I did see a thing rising up before, but it might be another development...I forgot. I was walking near Tanglin Shopping Centre, which might be too far?

From the developer's website:









One of the first things you will notice about The Boulevard Residence is the intriguing way in which the building seems to change during the course of the day. At times it appears translucent and skeletal. At others impervious and mirror-like, its two streamlined towers-placed diagonally opposite each other - are linked by bridges in the sky. Yet what gives The Boulevard Residence such an arresting presence is its combination of sleek lines and the fascinating manipulation of light and materials.

The series of intersecting and overlapping places are constructed with materials of inherently different characteristics: solid, transparent, opaque and translucent. The glass fins on its fašade play an optical game with light by simultaneously casting half shadows and reflecting radiance from unexpected directions. The result is a distinctively fluid quality in the building's appearance.

Running the entire height of both towers is a perforated steel staircase enclosed by a medal screen that is reminiscent more of fabric than of building matter. This screen forms an intricate and porous sheath that silhouettes the staircase while catching light on its reflective surfaces. At night the towers make a dramatic statement, lighting up like elegant lanterns or beacons in the urban landscape.



The Boulevard Residence makes a bold statement of its truly contemporary high-rise lifestyle through the use of shared spaces in the sky. Two sky terraces contain fitness equipment as well as gardens and horizontal podium holds the pool deck and a multi-function platform. At this podium, the clever use of a small strip of glass at the water's edge makes the pool appear like a large glass object cantilevered into the surrounding tree canopy, these extraordinary architectural touches are only appropriate as they reflect the lifestyle and sophistication of the buildings' discerning residents.

The Boulevard Residence's design philosophy of clean lines, attention to detail and rich materials is carried through to each individual apartment. Inside, no luxury is spared. These apartments also convey a sense of living that is at once elegant, modern and stylish. This combination of innovative architecture and refined lifestyle can perhaps only be described as "The Ultimate Living".
