What It’s Like To Live In Wallich Residence—Singapore’s Tallest Skyscraper
Luxury living takes various forms in Singapore—you could live in a good class bungalow within a prestigious district, on a yacht at a fancy marina club or a spacious penthouse.
In fact, Singapore’s biggest and most expensive penthouse at Wallich Residence was snapped up for a princely sum of $74 million in July this year. It boasts five bedrooms, each with its own en-suite bathroom, a private garden as well as a private lift, storage for 600 bottles of wine, and round-the-clock dedicated butler service.
While said penthouse is no longer for sale, there remains a collection of other private apartments within the residential floors of the tower—so what is it like living at Singapore’s tallest address?
Occupying the highest floors from the 39th to 64th levels and located 180m to 290m above sea level, the building is part of Guoco Tower, a unique five-in-one integrated landmark development located in the heart of Singapore’s central business district. It has direct access to Tanjong Pagar MRT station and is a stone’s throw away from heritage areas of Chinatown as well as the lively dining and entertainment scene at Ann Siang Hill, Club Street, Tras Street and Duxton Hill.

The amenities of Wallich Residence are segregated into three sections: Apex, Cloud 220 and Social 180. There’s no doubt that the property prioritises comfort and luxury for its residents, but the hotel-inspired Wallich Concierge Service takes things up by a notch. Additionally, there are four levels of amenities including the aforementioned service, the stunning infinity pool on level 39, the private library on level 52 and breathtaking glass observation AirDecks at the Apex that offer panoramic views from the city island’s highest point on the 62nd floor.
The Social 180 is a sanctuary of landscaped gardens, a jacuzzi and entertainment rooms. There’s also a gym and barbecue pits for residents to peruse and gather with friends and family.
