Who says you’ll only be able to get a good view of the National Day fireworks if you head to an expensive restaurant or bar in the Marina Bay area?
In this blog post, we share 5 HDB flats where you can enjoy the fireworks. If you’re morally opposed to paying $20 for a cocktail, or you’re trying to spend more responsibly, this list will be right up your alley.
#1: The Pinnacle @ Duxton
The [email protected] is arguably one of the most iconic and well-known HDB flats in Singapore. This 50-storey residential development is located at Cantonment Road, and it features the world’s two longest sky gardens of 500 metres each.
Note that the sky garden on the 26th floor is exclusive to residents, while the one on the 50th floor is accessible to the public from 9am to 10pm, for a $5 fee.
Address: [email protected], 1 Cantonment Road, Singapore 080001
#2: Skyville @ Dawson
SkyVille @ Dawson is another one of those HDBs that, regardless of which angle you view it from, simply doesn’t look like a HDB. The project was designed by an award-winning local architectural firm, WOHA Architects, and was completed back in 2015 under HDB’s “Remaking Our Heartland” initiative.
Unlike Pinnacle @ Duxton, you’re free to roam around this project; you’ll be glad to know that the sky garden on the 47th floor is accessible to the public.
Address: [email protected], 86 Dawson Road, Singapore 141086
#3: Bras Basah Complex
Ask your fellow Singaporeans about Bras Basah complex, and they’ll probably tell you that it’s the old-school open air mall that sells used books, or that there’s a huge Art Friend there. That aside, there’s actually a HDB block located above Bras Basah Complex, and the views that you get from here are pretty amazing.
Address: 233 Bain Street, Singapore 180231
#4: Toa Payoh Central
Instead of squeezing amongst hordes of people at Marina Bay, why not spend your National Day in the heartlands, at Toa Payoh?
Here, you’ll be able to indulge in delicious zichar and snack on muachee from a 60 year old heritage stall before heading to Block 79B, Toa Payoh Central to enjoy a spectacular view of the fireworks. Block 79B stands at an impressive 40 floors high, which puts you in the perfect position to witness the fireworks in their full glory.
Address: 79B Toa Payoh Central, Singapore 312079
#5: McNair Towers
If you’re living along the North-East line, check out McNair Towers, which is located a short stroll away from Boon Keng MRT. The residential blocks in this BTO project are designed to maximise the views to Sungei Whampoa and the city, and we hear that you can see all the way to the Singapore Flyer from level 35.
Address: 113 McNair Road, Singapore 322113
