SINGAPORE will be home to possibly the world's largest sky garden - 500m long and 24m wide and perched up to 50 storeys above ground.
The garden, spread along a network of skybridges, will be on the doorsteps of HDB residents, so to speak, as part of it will sit atop the tallest-ever public housing project here, with another section further down.
National Development Minister Mah Bow Tan yesterday launched the 12th and final skybridge at the 1,848-unit The Pinnacle@Duxton in Cantonment Road. Twelve skybridges link the seven residential blocks at the 26th and 50th storeys, to create a long continuous sky garden on both levels.
The Pinnacle@Duxton is located where the first two HDB blocks in the area were built 50 years ago - an important tribute to the HDB's 50th anniversary next year, said Mr Mah.
Residents will be able to collect their keys at the end of the year, said Mr Mah.
