Raffles City, SingaporeRaffles City, Singapore (13 September, 2010)

Raffles City (GPS: 1.29401, 103.85338) is a huge retail, office and hotel complex in the Civic District, within the Downtown Core of Singapore. It occupies a whole city block bounded by Stamford Road, Beach Road, Bras Basah Road and North Bridge Road.

Raffles City was designed by the famous Guangzhou-born Chinese American architect, I.M. Pei, who later also designed the Gateway Building. It comprises the 73-storey Swissôtel The Stamford, the 6th tallest hotel in the world, and Fairmont Singapore, a 26-storey high-end twin-block hotel. In addition, there is the 42-storey Raffles City Tower, the Raffles City Shopping Centre; and the Raffles City Convention Centre.

Raffles City opened on 3 October, 1986. It was built on the site of the historic Raffles Institution, across the road from Raffles Hotel.
