  • This building has 15 double-decker vertical lifts.
  • Republic Plaza is one of three 280 metres tall buildings in Singapore. 280 metres is the maximum height permitted by the National Aviation Authority.
  • The tower is turned 45 degrees from the axis of the ground floor level to maintain ocean views from the upper floors
  • The building is built to resist strong winds and even earthquakes by a combination of a core wall system and a moment-resisting frame on the exterior, including outrigger braces.
  • The main lobby is four storeys high, finished in polished granite and ceramics.
  • After nightfall, only the glass top is visible when it is lit from within.
  • The tower rose rapidly despite building complications which included a subway line beside the site, historically important buildings nearby, as well as natural boulders and abandoned piles underground.
  • The construction was completed in just under two years using the fast track process.
  • A total of 8,600 tons of structural steel and 31,000 cubic metres of concrete was used.
  • The exterior facade transitions from granite with strip windows to tinted wall glass, smoothly inclining from an octagonal base to a square top.
  • It is framed by concrete-filled tubular steel columns.
  • Building the tower on a caisson with more than 900 mini piles was used as a solution.
  • This tower was designed to reflect a subtle Oriental influence.
