Lendlease was appointed by Shaw Towers Realty to manage the redevelopment of the property in 2020. It will also manage the new development following completion of the redevelopment targeted in 2025.
The new Shaw Tower will comprise 435,000 sq ft of Grade-A office space, along with a five-storey podium encompassing 15,700 sq ft of retail and F&B offerings including a rooftop restaurant. There will also be 21,500 sq ft of community-centric facilities such as a multi-purpose hall with auditorium and meeting and training facilities.

According to Lendlease, the office space will feature a configuration with multiple knock-out panels, offering a flexible workplace that can be adapted to different configurations to suit each tenant’s unique needs. Floorplates will range between 17,000 and 19,000 sq ft.
Workplace access within Shaw Tower will be supported by technologies such as facial recognition, contactless entry, destination control lifts equipped with automatic UV sterilisation and smart lighting.
The new building, which will target BCA Green Mark Platinium accreditation, will integrate a biophilic design with greenery in the form of outdoor breakout and collaboration spaces, a fitness and yoga deck, two sky terraces, rooftop gardens, and end-of-trip facilities such as secure indoor and outdoor bicycle parking, lockers, and shower facilities.
Raymond Chan, managing director of the Shaw Group of Companies, Hong Kong, says that the group is committed to preserving Shaw Tower’s place as a symbol of Singapore’s modern identity. “Just as it did during an exciting time for post-independence Singapore, we hope the new Shaw Tower will again capture the zeitgeist of Singapore today in its sustainability journey and represent a breakthrough in how culture and history can be melded with cutting-edge technology to bring to life the future of workplace,” he adds.

Lendlease states that heritage elements of the original building will be incorporated into the new building, such as the original Shaw Brothers logo from the roof facade and previous Shine auditorium seats. Lendlease has also engaged professors from the National University of Singapore’s Department of Architecture as its heritage consultants for the project.
“The combination of heritage elements of the original Shaw Tower with best-in-class sustainability features and innovative design will ensure its legacy extends into the next chapter of its illustrious story,” says Ng Hsueh Ling, Lendlease’s managing director, Singapore.
