Republic Plaza

Republic Plaza is one of Singapore’s three tallest skyscrapers, along with OUB Centre and UOB Plaza One, at 280 metres (equivalent to 919 feet) tall. It is located at the central business district of Singapore, towards the Southern end of Raffles Place in the Downtown Core. Completed in 1995, it incorporates earthquake proof features despite the city’s relative distance from earthquake zones. Designed to maximize space, the tower rose to success in just two years despite building complications and restraints, such as an MRT line beside the site, historically important buildings nearby, and natural boulders and abandoned underground piles. It now holds 126 businesses. Adding a new dimension of architectural beauty, the glass top is visible when it is lit from within after dark. The Commercial Building located in Raffles Place is held close to Singapore’s heart.
