CapitaLand, which owns and manages Clarke Quay, announced on Tuesday (July 26) that the $62 million transformation will begin in the third quarter of 2022 and be completed one year later, with Clarke Quay to be operational throughout. The revamp of Clarke Quay will include a rebranding of Clarke Quay to CQ @ Clarke Quay and transform the area into a day and night destination.
In future, Clarke Quay will also be connected to residential development CanningHill Piers – which is being built by CapitaLand Development and City Developments on the former Liang Court’s site and should be completed in 2025 – by a riverfront promenade situated on an existing road that separates the residential development from the river.
CQ will be split into three zone
Each new zone will focus on a different theme. Blocks A & D (Blue) will be named ‘The Riverfront’ and will focus on dinning. Block B (Green) will be repainted and named ‘The Warehouses’ and will focus on retail, workshops and F&B. Block C & D (Maroon) will be named ‘The Circuit’ and will focus on high-energy attractions such as bars, clubs and entertainment.
Some things you can look forward to include a local flagship coffee house, as well as a grocery store with in-store dining by FairPrice. Other fun offerings include a pottery-themed cafe named Catching The Waves, as well as an upcoming music lifestyle experience by music store Swee Lee.
Featuring Riverside dinning. Pet owners will be happy to know that in the near future, they will be able to bring their furry friends along to CQ with ease, as there’ll be pet-friendly alfresco dining areas. You can stop for a meal outdoors once you’re done enjoying a calming riverside walk with your pet.
Existing key tenants Zouk Group and 1-Group will also expand their day-to-night offerings, Slingshot – a thrill ride that catapults riders 70m above the Singapore River – will also be located on the property, CapitaLand said.
The future residents of the upcoming Canninghill Piers have received the news with delight, as their investments have already started paying off even before the scheduled completion in 2025.
