THE TOWERING V ON SHENTON is the latest landmark in the financial district of Singapore. Completed in 2017, the new mixeduse development comprises the 54-storey residential tower, V on Shenton, and the new UIC Building, a 23-storey, Grade-A office tower.
The towers are a redevelopment of the former UIC Building. Built in 1973, UIC Building was once the tallest tower in Singapore. The new V on Shenton is a reinterpretation of the landmark development by world-renowned Dutch architect Ben van Berkel of UNStudio, whose works include Ardmore Residence in Singapore and the upcoming tallest building in Australia, Green Spine, in Melbourne.

The façade is further augmented by a series of sky gardens that provide greenery and function as a refuge from the hustle and bustle of the city.
