Amenities & Important Hubs from Riviere
Singapore River is one of the major rivers of Singapore, and has deep historical tie with the development of the country, URA has defined Singapore River as a component of the nation worthy of extra attention and care, and is under the Singapore River Planning Area under URA/MND. The Singapore River is approximately 3.2 kilometres long starting from Kim Seng Bridge (where Frasers Residence Promenade is located at) to where it leads into Marina Bay. The river extends more than two kilometres beyond its original source at Kim Seng Bridge as Alexandra Canal, as far as the junction of Commonwealth Avenue. We can find many retail and dining options along Singapore River from Robertson Quay, all the way to Clarke Quay and Boat Quay which is just a taxi river cruise or an evening leisure stroll from Jiak Kim Street.
Today, Singapore River is now part of the Marina Reservoir. A dam was created at the outlet of Singapore River to the sea to protect a new reservoir that consists of freshwater. This dam is known as Marina Barrage.
The original ending point of the Singapore River empties into the Singapore Straits and its southern islands before major land reclamation took place. After the construction of Marina Barrage, Singapore River now empties into Marina Bay – an area of water partially enclosed by the reclamation work. PSA (Port Authority of Singapore) Ports of Singapore is now located to the west of the island, using most of the south-west coastal area of Singapore. Passenger ships to Singapore also berth typically at the Singapore Cruise Centre located at Harbourfront Pier. Therefore, Singapore River’s economic role from the past has now shifted away from one that of trade, towards more a role accommodated for tourism and aesthetics for the commercial zone which encloses it, which Riviere Condo located at Jiak Kim Street is now a part of.
