MOMENTS TO REVERE
No man ever steps in the same river twice,
for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.
EVERY GREAT CITY HAS A RIVER.
NEW YORK. LONDON. SHANGHAI.
EVERY RIVER HAS A STORY.
THE SINGAPORE RIVER IS THE
A TALE OF OVERCOMING.
A WAY OF PROGRESS.
BRIDGING LEGACY AND MODERNITY
The history of modern Singapore dates back 200 years, beginning at the mouth of the Singapore River where Sir Stamford Raffles first landed. Today, the river is recognised by its artfully restored godowns, of which three will soon be transformed into a trendy lifestyle destination as part of Rivière’s larger precinct development.
FROM THE RIVER, FORTUNE FLOWS
When Raffles sailed into the Singapore River with William Farquhar in 1819, they were drawn by the island’s strategic location, which was on the main oceanic trading route between Europe and the Orient. A treaty was soon signed between Raffles and the local rulers to allow the British to establish a trading port at the mouth of the Singapore River.
The growth of Singapore as a trading port and the fortunes that came along with it are inextricably tied to the river. As trade flourished, trading houses and godowns were built upriver. These businesses brought wealth and opportunity to their owners, among whom were prominent Chinese leader Tan Jiak Kim and his forefathers.
As a philanthropist, Tan Jiak Kim continued his family’s legacy of giving back to society and helping to better the lives of his fellow countrymen. In his honour, Jiak Kim Street, which is next to the Singapore River, was named after him in 1920.
To this day, stories like this continue to unravel along the Singapore River, a neverending lifeline of progress and plenitude.

AN ICONIC DEVELOPMENT BY THE SINGAPORE RIVER
Part of a larger development consisting of three meticulously restored warehouses and newly built serviced apartments, Rivière comprises of two gleaming towers of luxury residential apartments, rising 36 storeys above the river. Reflecting the sky above, the water below, and the city around, the stunning architecture is an icon in the making.
FROM THE IMAGINATION OF A VISIONARY ARCHITECT
Designed by renowned architecture practice SCDA, Rivière is a showpiece in mastering the elements of architecture – light, space, transparency, materiality and order. The residential towers are raised elegantly on structural stilts, framed by intimate gardens and sensuous water pavilions. The overall design aspires to the humanist qualities of serenity and calmness, giving poetic beauty to everyday moments.
Led by principal architect Soo K. Chan, the highly esteemed practice has received numerous accolades including the President’s Design Award, the RIBA Award, the SIA Architectural Design Awards and prizes from the World Architecture Festival for its extensive portfolio covering luxury residences, hospitality and cultural institutions around the world.
THE RIVER’S CENTREPIECE
The river winds around Rivière, a sculptural masterpiece that will no doubt be the envy of its neighbours. Next to it, serviced apartments and three conserved warehouses form the rest of the development.
AN IMPRESSIONABLE WELCOME HOME
An elevated entrance creates an exclusive sense of arrival. After all, this is a private world, perched amidst lush greenery and cool waters.
A NATURAL LANDSCAPE
Although extremely private, Rivière is designed with the surroundings in mind. Nature from the river and the promenade extends inwards, creating a natural connection between river and residence, human and nature. A heritage walk also links Jiak Kim Street to the promenade.
A PRIME CITY ADDRESS, A QUAYSIDE LIFESTYLE
Nestled at the quieter and more residential end of Robertson Quay, Rivière epitomises the very best of city living in an exclusive, all private enclave. Following the river, the Central Business District and Marina Bay are to the east while Orchard Road lies just six minutes’ northside by car.
Magnificently lit up, Rivière takes on a different character as night falls.
It is the city’s beacon, seen from Marina Bay and downtown Orchard.
