SINGAPORE — Work has stopped at a construction site in Tanjong Pagar where a concrete wall collapsed on Thursday afternoon (Jun 15), killing one worker. The incident occurred at the Bernam Street off Anson Road where Fuji Xerox Towers is being demolished. The Building and Construction Authority and Ministry of Manpower have issued a stop work order for the area.
Located in the Anson precinct, this new mixed-development offers supreme connectivity and vibrant lifestyles right at your doorstep. It is within walking distance to shopping malls such as Icon Village, 100AM and Parco & Amara Shopping Centre, where a plethora of F&B, retail shops and themed coffee shops/cafes await you. It is also surrounded by numerous Grade A office buildings which bring in ready pool of quality expats tenants.
The 99-year leasehold land parcel in Bernam Street is slated for residential-with-commercial use and was put up for tender last week by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA). The GPR of the site has been increased from the previously estimated 250 to 325 dwelling units, reflecting the higher density allowed under the first half 2019 Government Land Sales (GLS) confirmed list. The higher GPR is also in line with URA’s CBD Incentive Scheme, which encourages developers to convert offices in the Central Business District into residential and hotel developments to add life and vibrancy after office hours. one bernam
