The property enjoys the quiet tranquility of the River Valley neighbourhood, an exclusive and centrally-located residential enclave with excellent views of the surrounding lush greenery and the city centre. It’s also just a stone’s throw away from the central business district (CBD) and the glamorous shopping belt that is Orchard Road. The property is also well-connected to major highways with easy access to prominent local and international schools and many nearby amenities.
Within the property are luxurious spa facilities, well-appointed lounge areas, and sky terraces—just the spot one needs after a long day, or simply to chill out with family and friends during the weekend. There are plenty of play areas for children to have fun in and stretch themselves; and for adults getting fit is easy, with a tennis court, gym, swimming pool, and fitness corner all within reach.
Garden in the sky
Designed by award-winning practice DP Architects, the two towers boast sharp, geometric architecture cocooned in lush foliage. One of the most striking features of the property is the green roof that connects the twin towers, a prime spot where one can enjoy the panoramic skyline.
The idea of a roof garden takes on new meaning with the sky terrace, which is designed with walls of cascading plants, fresh blooms and lush canopies. Here, residents can also luxuriate in the outdoor pool, take a spa bath or even relax in the steam room.

It’s not just green on the outside—as a recipient of the BCA Green Mark Gold award, 8 St Thomas is a project built for the eco-conscious resident. It uses an irrigation system that harvests rainwater, while fallen leaves on the estate are recycled and composted as fertilisers for the gardens.
The windows of selected apartments are clad with low emissivity, double-glazed glass—a passive cooling feature that helps reduce the use of air conditioning. And for car owners, no detail is too small when it comes to creating a sustainable living environment—there are even charging points for electric cars.
Each apartment features smart controls for lighting in the living and dining areas, as well as in the master bedroom. These units are also furnished with Miele kitchen appliances, Grohe faucets, and Villeroy & Boch sanitary wares. Selected apartments also enjoy unobstructed views of the Marina Bay and Orchard Road areas.
A collection of five fully-furnished show apartments offers inspiring ways to decorate. Designed individually by three local firms, these apartments encapsulate the elegance of the address. While 2nd Edition adopted a glamorous look, Design Basis created a minimalist family home; an apartment by Janet McGlennon Interiors, on the other hand, featured a vibrant colour scheme inspired by the beauty of its surroundings.
With its enviable address, well-appointed interiors and green features, the apartments at 8 St Thomas are havens that you can’t say no to.
