Explore Tanjong Pagar like your home

Located at the gateway of the Central Business District, Tanjong Pagar has an interesting mix of old and new charm. It is home to one of the oldest Historic Districts with beautifully conserved shophouses, local hawker centres and markets, hotels, residences, and also the tallest building in Singapore.

The precinct also has a diverse mix of uses such as commercial, hotel, residential (private and public housing); as well as some of the most popular local food, traditional pastries and teahouses.

Discover Tanjong Pagar is a private-sector led partnership inaugurated in August 2019 formed by property owners in the precinct to carry out the placemaking of the precinct.

The Discover Tanjong Pagar pilot Business Improvement District (BID) is made up of eight commercial stakeholders, and they include Carlton City Hotel Singapore by The Carlton Collection, Downtown Gallery by OUE Limited, Guoco Tower by GuocoLand Singapore, Icon Village by Far East Organization, International Plaza by Tian Teck Group, Oasia Hotel Downtown Singapore managed by Far East Hospitality, Orchid Hotel and Sofitel Singapore City Centre.

Set up under Urban Redevelopment Authority’s pilot Business Improvement District (BID) programme, the property owners aim to build a strong community, connecting people and businesses and create a place where people want to be.
