"The land parcel is located at the fringe of the Singapore city centre and the intersection of two key development corridors along Beach Road and the Ophir-Rochor roads. Fronting Beach Road, Rochor Road and Nicoll Highway, the future development is envisaged to provide high-quality office space with complementary uses that can meet the needs of financial and business services," URA said in a release on Wednesday.

"This new development will also reinforce the area's positioning as an attractive and vibrant mixed-use precinct within the city centre ... the future development on the land parcel can reach a height of 45 storeys ..." URA said.
