The Former Liang Court Site
Opened in 1984, Liang Court was the first large shopping mall in the area, with Japanese department store and supermarket chain Daimaru being a key attraction for locals and expatriates looking for Japanese wares.
Following a series of restructuring and refurbishments due to the ups and downs of business in the mall, it was sold in March 2019 to a joint venture between CapitaLand and City Developments Limited.
In November 2019, CapitaLand and its subsidiary Ascott REIT, along with City Developments Limited announced that Liang Court will be redeveloped into a mixed-use, integrated development named Canninghill Piers.
This redevelopment effort was made possible following the proposed sale by CDL Hospitality Trusts (CDLHT) of its entire stake in Novotel Singapore Clarke Quay to the 50:50 CDL-CapitaLand joint venture entities and CDL.
Concurrently, Ascott Reit, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of CapitaLand, will sell part of its interest in Somerset Liang Court Singapore to CDL.
The sale of Liang Court to Capitaland and CDL cost $400 million.

CanningHill Piers Introduction
CanningHill Piers is so named to reflect is unique trait as being the only residential development in Singapore complemented by both the Singapore River and Fort Canning Hill.
It is an integrated development that boasts excellent connectivity defining the best of urban living. The development is directly linked to Fort Canning MRT station on the Downtown Line, and right beside F&B and lifestyle destination Clarke Quay.
A wide selection of unit types from one- to five-bedroom premium apartments, Sky Suites and a Super Penthouse, ranging in size from approximately 410 to 8,950 sq ft, will be available.
Targeted for completion in 2025, CanningHill Piers enjoys convenient access to the CBD via the Central Expressway. It will be directly linked by an underpass to Fort Canning MRT station on the Downtown Line, and a mere eight-minute walk from Clarke Quay MRT station on the North East Line.
CanningHill Piers Design
The design scheme for CanningHill Piers comprises four towers of different heights, set atop a double-storey commercial podium named CanningHill Square.
The residential towers are diagonally facing and houses 696 units, with 1 tower being 48 storeys tall, and the other being 24 storeys tall.
A 21-Storey Hotel operated under the Moxy brand by Marriott International offers 477 Guest Rooms. The last of the 4 towers is a 20-Storey Serviced Residence with Hotel Licence, managed by the Somerset brand, offering 192 Guest Rooms.
All four towers are distinctly spaced apart from each other to maximise views and allow the courtyard at the heart of the commercial podium to open to the sky.
A single continuous drape adorning the façade ties the various components together into an iconic and sculptural whole. Strategic parts of the façade drape are lifted to unveil building entrances, communal areas and green spaces at various heights, creating a strong and unified architectural identity for the integrated development.
The design architect is Bjarke Ingels Group, a renowned Danish architecture firm behind some of the world’s award-winning residential developments such as 8 House in Copenhagen and Via 57 West in New York.
CanningHill Piers Facilities
The 2 residential towers are connected by an iconic sky bridge on Level 24, filled with a wide range of lifestyle facilities such as the Sky Gym, Infinity Lap Pool, Sky Gourmet, Flexi Lounge and Function Room offering unobstructed views of Fort Canning Hill, Singapore River, the Central Business District (CBD), Marina Bay and beyond.
More amenities and vantage points await residents on Level 3, where an outdoor jogging track, a bouldering wall and an adventure-themed children’s play area can be found amidst verdant landscaping.
The Sky Club, a luxurious clubhouse spanning over 1,900 square feet (sq ft), with breath-taking views of Marina Bay, together with the Sky Garden, are located on Level 45.
CanningHill Piers Upcoming Transformations
Part of an existing road that currently separates the project site and the river will be transformed into an attractive riverfront promenade that connects seamlessly with the vibrant Clarke Quay lifestyle precinct along the same stretch. In the future, residents can look forward to hiking from Fort Canning Park to Pearl’s Hill City Park through the scenic Singapore River, as part of the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s Master Plan 2019. In addition, Clarke Quay’s revitalised retail services and F&B offerings will suit the needs of the enlarged population of residents in the River Valley vicinity.
