The upcoming One Bernam by MCC Land and Hao Yuan Investment is located in the heart of Tanjong Pagar. A mixed-use development, it has a 351-unit condominium in a 35-storey tower, 13-key serviced apartments and a double-storey retail podium with 15,276 sq ft of retail space.
It marks the joint venture partners’ first project in the Core Central Region (CCR). Unit sizes at One Bernam are larger than average to cater to to those working from home and requiring more space. One-bedroom apartments comprise 87 units (25%) and are sized from 441 sq ft to 463 sq ft. Two-bedroom and two-bedroom-plus-study units ranging from 700 sq ft to 872 sq ft make up 232 units (66%). One- and two-bedroom units make up 91% of the total units in the development.
Three-bedroom apartments of 1,421 sq ft make up 29 units. The two biggest three-bedroom units are penthouses of 1,744 sq ft and 1,948 sq ft each on the 35th floor topmost floor (35th floor). Besides the three-bedroom penthouses, a sole five-bedroom penthouse of 4,306 sq ft is also on that top level.

DP Architects designed the project with landscape architecture by DP Green. SuMisura designed the sales gallery and show flats at One Bernam. One Bernam won the Showflat Excellence Award under the Uncompleted Mixed-Use Development category in the EdgeProp Singapore Excellence Awards 2022. The show flats were designed to demonstrate the flexibility of space use within the units. For instance, the one-bedroom show flat was designed to show how the dining area can be converted into “an interactive study” or “interactive dining”, says Angela Lim, director and co-founder of SuMiura. “This can be done with a flip-up top or swivel-out bar table that can transform spaces and add value to the end user.”

One Bernam has two sky terraces with facilities on the fourth and 34th floors. The fourth-floor sky terrace has a swimming pool, spa pool, wellness decks, and lush gardens. The clubhouse, function room and garden dining pavilion are also there. There is also a lounge deck and a viewing deck on this level. “This is where people can have drinks in the evening while enjoying a view of the street activity below; we realise such city views are precious,” says Yvonne Tan, director of DP Green.

DP Green’s biophilic design emphasises health and wellness, with the 34th-storey sky terrace sporting a tatami garden and tatami decks for those seeking zen moments in their day. There is also a sky hammock garden for relaxation, a fitness club, and a sky lounge. “The idea is to curate spaces that cater to different lifestyles and that people can enjoy,” adds Tan.
Besides well-designed spaces, the developer has also focused on providing high-end finishes for One Bernam, for instance, kitchen appliances and fittings from top-end German brand Franke and Swiss brand V-ZUG, as well as bathroom accessories and sanitaryware from Italian brand Gessi and Swiss brand Laufen. The developer also provides a US-made ceiling fan from Haiku in all living rooms so residents can enjoy indoor-outdoor living and views from the high-rise tower in the city centre.

One Bernam is close to malls like 100AM at Tras Street and the six-storey retail podium at Guoco Tower at Wallich Street. Within a five-minute walk are the eateries on Tras Street, Peck Seah Street and Amoy Street. Nearby parks include Tanjong Pagar Park at Guoco Tower, Duxton Plain Park next to Pinnacle @ Duxton and Vanda Miss Joaquim Park at Yan Kit Road.
