SINGAPORE (July 13): There is a reason for the new development at Golden Shoe Car Park (GSCP) to be tall and fat, says Lynette Leong, CEO of the manager of CapitaLand Commercial Trust.

“It’s going to transform the skyline of Singapore. Our development is going to be tall and fat. It shows that the floor plate size is much larger than that of surrounding tall buildings,” says Leong.

The yet-to-be-named new skyscraper will have 51 floors and stand 280 m tall, putting it on par with UOB Plaza 1, One Raffles Place and Republic Plaza Tower 1.  But the new building will have column free floor plates as large as 23,300 sf, with the smallest floor plate at 22,200 sf.
