More about Market Street
Market Street is one of Singapore’s oldest streets to date; it was part of the 1836 Map of the Town and Environs of Singapore and was home to many Indian shophouses and Hokkien businesses. The Indian shophouses housed several money-lenders at a time with each of them operating their own stations. Each money lender manned a booth with only a wooden platform, a chair, and a box for storing records and keeping money. Meanwhile, the Hokkiens operated import and export businesses which hired a number of commission agents. From 1982 to 1982, the Indian shophouses were demolished while the Hokkien businesses remained.
What to See at Market Street
The Golden Shoes Carpark
Occupying an entire side of the Market Street that connects Church Street to Malacca Street and Market Street, The Golden Shoes Carpark is a 10-storey building that had had shops, restaurants, as well as offices. In 2016, it was announced that the building would undergo redevelopment to grow it into a 51-story, 280-metre high commercial skyscraper with Grade-A office floors and modern serviced residences.
Just on the other side of The Golden Shoes Carpark stands the Republic Plaza. Designed by Kisho Kurokawa, a leading Japanese architect of the 20th century, this commercial skyscraper stands 66-storey high and 280-metre tall and was the “tallest building” in Singapore up until the completion of Tanjong Pagar Centre in 2016.
Beside the Market Street that connects Cecil Street to the junction of Cross Street and Robinson Road, Capita Green stands where Market Street Car Park used to be. Capita Green, also known as Market Street Tower, is a 40-storey high and 245-metre tall office tower designed by another Japanese architect, Toyo Ito. The building was finished in 2014 and is considered one of the tallest skyscrapers in Singapore today. True to its name, Capita Green has a facade that showcases an array of living plants and a rooftop garden that boasts 40 different kinds of trees and shrubs. Its rooftop garden features a 45m-high flower petal-like windcatcher which captures cool fresh air and channels it into the office floors.
