Hidden Views In Singapore — Incredible Bird’s Eye View from The Pinnacle@Duxton

In this ‘Hidden Views In Singapore’ series, we bring you some of the city’s best-kept hidden gems for you to explore and experience a new adventure.

With its eye-catching sky bridges and interesting circuit board-like façade, The Pinnacle@Duxton reaches a dizzying height of 50 storeys and towers over the rest of the buildings along Cantonment Road, giving visitors panoramic views of the city’s skyline.

Its sky bridge at the 50th floor offers a scenic spot that can rival that of the Marina Bay Sands and Singapore Flyer— all with a much lesser crowd.

What Is It

Believe it or not, The Pinnacle@Duxton is actually a Housing Development Board (HDB) project and the apartments there are considered HDB flats. What sets it apart from other HDB projects is that it is the first 50-storey public housing project in Singapore with ground-breaking design and architecture.
The Pinnacle@Duxton’s main attractions are the unique sky bridges located on the 26th storey and 50th storey. Together, they connect all seven towers and create the longest continuous sky gardens in the world.

The sky bridge on the 50th floor is open to both the public and residents. Meanwhile, the sky bridge on the 26th storey sky bridge is reserved for the residents’ use only and serves as an evacuation bridge for them during a fire emergency.

Who Is It For

The 50th storey sky bridge and sky garden make lovely spots for individuals who are on the hunt for perfect #ootd shots or couples looking to enjoy scenic views of the city – all without the need to jostle with the crowds.

A quota of 200 members of the public can access the 50th storey sky bridge per day. Once the quota of 200 is met for the day, no further access by the public will be allowed on the same day. Only 100 members of the public will be allowed on the sky bridge at any one time.

What To See

50th storey sky bridge: On the sky bridge, be prepared to be wowed by the breathtaking 360-degree view that is well worth experiencing it in-person. The views stretch from Outram Park, Chinatown, Harbourfront, and even as far as Sentosa island itself if you position yourself right.

The best views can be seen at dawn and dusk where you can watch the sun rise or sink below the horizon.
Sky garden: The sky bridge is also home to a tranquil sky garden. Seats are available for you to settle yourself down and enjoy some light reading in the lush greenery with a cool breeze in your hair. Many decorations are also littered around the 50th floor for you to use as props to capture your best angles.
