Fancy living in one of Singapore’s most sought-after residential areas, Bishan Central? Located just twenty minutes north of Singapore’s bustling center, the Sky Habitat project is a pair of balcony-covered residential towers linked by three aerial walkways which combines the best of landed and high-rise living.
Oh, did we mention that the architect who came up with Sky Habitat is the same person who designed the Marina Bay Sands?
“Step” Out From The Crowd
Designed by international architecture firm Safdie Architects and developed by CapitaLand, Sky Habitat was inspired by Habitat 67, an architectural landmark in Montreal, Canada, that transformed the face of urban living. World-reknown architect Moshe Safdie puts a new spin on city-fringe living with Sky Habitat, redefining apartment living through design, form and function.
It is an iconic landmark development comprising 509 residential units in two 38-storey towers that employ a stepped design, reminiscent of ancient hillside developments that provides for lush vertical greenery, multiple orientations relative to the sun, naturally ventilated units, and generous views, all without compromising planning or structural efficiency. Breaking down the scale of typical singular tower residential development, the community-based solution of Sky Habitat is a three-dimensional matrix of homes with private terraces, balconies, and common gardens, bringing landscape into the air and maintaining porosity on the skyline.
The Best of Bishan
Located in the neighborhood of Bishan, a residential area in the suburban heartland of Singapore, this 38-story residential complex explores the balance of high-density living with humanistic concepts of community, landscape, gardens, and daylight.
Enjoy spectacular views of the park and the best of urban conveniences and connectivity. Junction 8 and Bishan MRT are only a 3-minute walk away, while Orchard Road is just a 10-minute drive (or 5 station stops) from home.

Recreational Lifestyle @ Home
Sky Habitat was designed with three bridging sky gardens linking the two stepping towers, creating a series of interconnected streets, gardens, and terraces in the air, which provide a variety of areas for common recreation and congregation.
Take a dip in the infinity pool, enjoy your very own living space that opens to the sky, set up a picnic on the terrace for the family, or cultivate a garden corner for herbs or flowers.
