Skyscrapers in Singapore






Singapore was already the land of skyscrapers long before Asia developed. Its skyline was the envy of other Asian cities in the 1980s, before the rest of Asia began to construct skyscrapers. Today the height of skyscrapers has reach its limits, as there is a restriction to maximum height in the country. Due to this, there are three skyscrapers to have reached this maximum height, namely OUB Centre, UOB Plaza and Republic Plaza.

Although the height has been curtailed, it has not prevented architects from various parts of the world to add new cutting edge skyscrapers to the Singapore skyline. The development of Marina Bay has provided new space for their creations. On this page, we celebrate the skyscrapers that have been erected in Singapore. Also included are some of the oldest buildings that were once considered skyscrapers at the time of their construction.
