With their One World Trade Center safely crowned the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, the skyscraper overlords at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill have moved on, recently unveiling yet another record-breaker: Tanjong Pagar Centre, which will be Singapore's tallest tower when complete.

According to the project description, the skyscraper, the crown jewel in a 1.7M-square-foot mixed-used development in the Central Business District, will rise 951 feet and contain apartments on the upper floors and retail on the lower floors. The complex will also boast a luxury hotel, event space, cafes, office space, and, at the base, something called a "City Room," a 32,000-square-foot "covered public gathering space" meant to "contribute to the urban vitality of the neighborhood." And because one can't swing a dead cat these days without encountering some colossally tall project with a laundry list of eco-friendly bragging rights: green features such as solar-shading devices and photovoltaic panels have qualified the building for LEED Platinum Precertification.
