From the visionary minds of its original developer City Developments Limited (CDL) and the acclaimed SCDA Architects, the new Amber Park is poised to redefine seafront living just as it first did over 30 years ago.
Connecting the 3 residential towers at the top is The Stratosphere. This rooftop recreation deck is the signature feature of Amber Park. Rising 235 feet above sea level, The Stratosphere lets nothing come between the sky, sea and you. Catch the dawn from the Yoga Deck, and watch the rays lingering from the Lounge at the other end. Together with the sea-facing Gymnasium, the 600-metre Jogging Track elevates exercise to a delightful sensory experience.

The Founding of CDL
CDL began in a small, rented office in Amber Mansions on 7 September 1963, staffed by only eight employees, to acquire, develop and sell property. The Company went public in November 1963 and its shares were listed on what was known then as the Malayan Stock Exchange.
The Early Years
In 1965, CDL completed its first housing project, Fresh Breezes in Johor Bahru, and pioneered the “show flat” concept. This was followed by the launch of its first high-rise residential development in Singapore, City Towers, as well as the completion of Phase One of Clementi Park, CDL’s first full condominium concept project, in 1966.
A New Beginning
In 1972, the Hong Leong Group, under the guidance and leadership of founder, the late Mr Kwek Hong Png, acquired a controlling interest in CDL and embarked on a strategic diversification into investment properties. CDL placed its diversification strategy into effect with the acquisition of Guan Realty (Private) Limited in 1972. This newly acquired subsidiary subsequently developed City Plaza, CDL’s first mixed use Development which was completed in 1980.
Singapore Property Pioneer
With the late Mr Kwek’s aspiration and strong business acumen, CDL emerged as a major property developer in Singapore. In the 1980s, CDL launched 21 residential properties and completed 12 investment properties including City House in the heart of the Central Business District, which became CDL’s headquarters.
CDL made its maiden foray into the hospitality industry with the development of King’s Hotel (now Copthorne King’s Hotel Singapore). Orchid Inn (now redeveloped into a residential project – The Glyndebourne) was also bought about this time. This was followed by rapid expansion and regionalisation.
Today, CDL’s hospitality arm, Millennium & Copthorne Hotels plc (M&C) is Singapore’s largest international hotel group and one of the largest hotel owners and operators in the world.

We look forward to achieving new milestones as we continue to transform the eco-landscape as well as to set benchmarks in innovation and sustainable developments.

Architect for Amber Park
SCDA is a design studio seamlessly integrating architecture, interiors, landscape and product design to create holistic spatial experiences. Established in 1995 by Founding Principal and Design Director Soo Chan, SCDA was awarded the inaugural Royal Institute of British Architects Award for International Excellence (2016); the RIBA International Award for OneKL (2012) and the Lincoln Modern (2003); and the SIA-Getz Architecture Prize for Emergent Architecture in Asia (2006), in addition to nine Chicago Athenaeum International Architecture Awards.
SCDA’s work strives for tranquility and calmness qualified by space, light and structural order. Architectural expressions are distilled, to capture the spiritual essence of ‘place’; while architecture and interior are inspired by the cultural and climatic nuances of context; integrating landscape, water features and blurring the boundary between inside and out. Spaces are characterized by lush gardens, water courts and air wells, effecting a sensuous engagement with the elements. A sensitivity to the inherent beauty of natural materials is expressed through clarity in construction details, and elemental architectural expression.
