THE GRANDEUR OF THE PAST
Known famously as Singapore's wall street, Shenton Way proudly holds the financial and trading history of Singapore.
It was not until the 1960's that the first buildings appeared along Shenton Way. The first being the Conference Hall and Trade Union House (1965), later becoming the Singapore Conference Hall, and the ICB Building (1968) and Shing Kwan House which is now the SGX Centre. Also of significance to the area in the 1970s were Robina House, Shenton House and of course, UIC Building.
Standing at 152m tall, and 39 storeys high, UIC Building at fiVe Shenton Way was the tallest of the 'three sisters' on the south side of Shenton Way. Robina House and Shenton House make up the other two.
