189 Tallest HDB Blocks in Singapore With Over 30 Storeys for Unblocked Panoramic Views

Where is the tallest HDB flat in Singapore located? The answer’s easy: The Pinnacle @ Duxton. The allure of staying on a high floor has enticed an increasing number of people to part with upwards of a million dollars for an HDB unit at the project.

Personally, having an amazing view is the main reason we’d prefer to stay on a high floor versus a low one. If you’re like us and want to look for an HDB flat on a high floor, you’re at the right place.

According to Teoalida, 38 HDB blocks in Singapore are 41 to 50 storeys high, and 151 flats stand 31 to 40 floors tall. So we’ve used the website as a resource, fact-checked the information against HDB’s brochures and generally tried our best to compile this list of HDB flats that are over 30 storeys high. Enjoy!


Tanjong Pagar (Central)

The Pinnacle @ Duxton (Highest HDB Flat in Singapore!)


At 50 storeys, these seven HDB blocks in Singapore’s CBD are officially the tallest HDB flats in Singapore. Residents on the higher floors can see all the way to Keppel Harbour, Tanjong Pagar and Sentosa. 

There are two sky bridges on the 26th and 50th floor that connect the different blocks. If you don’t live here but want to visit the 50th storey sky bridge, you can do so for a small $6 fee. Browse listings for Pinnacle @ Duxton.

Holland Village and Buona Vista (Central)


Ghim Moh Valley at night.

The Holland Village and Buona Vista neighbourhoods have a high percentage of private property covering the areas. However, there is a smattering of HDB flats around the estate.

Prominent schools in the area include Anglo-Chinese School (Independent), Fairfield Methodist Secondary School, and Anglo-Chinese Junior College. Those who have young children can look into moving closer to choice primary schools such as Fairfield Methodist School (Primary) and Henry Park Primary School.

Commonwealth and Queenstown (Central)

Commonwealth used to be a part of Queenstown. These neighbourhoods are home to some of the oldest HDB estates in Singapore. Due to their city fringe location, many million-dollar HDB flat transactions which have taken place come from properties located in these areas.

Although not the absolute highest HDB flat in Singapore (that’s The Pinnacle @ Duxton), SkyVille@Dawson deserves a special mention here. At 47 storeys high, it is only slightly shorter than The Pinnacle.

Telok Blangah/Bukit Merah/Tiong Bahru (Central)

Arguably, Telok Blangah, Bukit Merah, and Tiong Bahru are the best HDB districts to live in due to the plethora of cafes, quaint boutiques, and other amenities that serve the area. 

Soaring to a whopping 48 storeys in height, the highest HDB block in this part of Singapore’s city-fringe is City Vue@Henderson,

Whampoa and Kallang (Central)

Over the last decade, the Whampoa and Kallang neighbourhoods have gone through a significant rejuvenation. As a result, many cafes, interesting F&B concepts, yoga and spin studios have sprung up alongside old-school shops.

New BTOs such as Kempas Residences are still under construction and expected to be completed in late 2024. And thanks to the Downtown and North East lines, residents of these estates experience excellent connectivity.

Probably the highest HDB development in this area is the City View @ Boon Keng DBSS, which at 40 storeys high, offers its namesake — a dazzling view of the city.

Toa Payoh (Central)


The Peak @ Toa Payoh

Toa Payoh has become a desirable residential area, thanks to how the mature estate is loaded with amenities. Not to mention, the neighbourhood is one of the top 5 areas to live in for dog lovers, with the many dog-friendly facilities available in the area. Those who own dogs can also spend weekends at the nearby Bishan-Ang Mo Kio park with their canine BFFs.

The Peak @ Toa Payoh may not be the highest HDB in Singapore, but it’s certainly a respectable height. At 42 storeys high, it towers over most other blocks in the HDB heartland of Toa Payoh.

Ang Mo Kio, Marymount and Bishan (North-East/Central)


Natura Loft. Source: Google Maps

The centrally located neighbourhoods of Ang Mo Kio, Marymount and Bishan remain some of the most populated towns in Singapore. The trade-off for crazy peak hour crowds is excellent connectivity via public transport and roads to the CBD.

Those who live on high floors, especially residents of the DBSS Natura Loft, will have views overlooking the city and/or the park. At 40 storeys tall, it is the highest HDB in Singapore’s ‘elite school’ neighbourhood of Bishan.

Natura Loft recently made headlines, with one of its 5-room units selling for $1.36 million, making it the most expensive HDB flat sold to date. That selling price beat the previous record of $1.295 million, which also was for another 5-room unit in the same project.

Marsiling and Woodlands (North)


Marsiling Heights. Source: Facebook

Estates in the North are typically not as tall, perhaps due to air-zone restrictions. Marsiling Heights and Marsiling Greenview comprise both rental and for-sale units to allow rental flats to better integrate into the heartlands. On the other hand, Woodlands Peak is made up of studio apartments and 3-room flats.

Clementi (West)

Many of these tall flats in Clementi are BTO flats built in the 2010s. In addition, you’ll find some super new blocks like Clementi Crest, which haven’t MOP-ed yet. Clementi NorthArc is a BTO project that is still under construction. Its estimated lease commencement date is 1Q to 2Q2022.

In Clementi, notable projects include Trevelis, a DBSS project, and Clementi Towers, the first HDB project integrated with a mall and bus interchange. Standing at 40 storeys high, both projects are as tall as you get for an HDB block in Singapore’s West.

Bukit Batok (West)

Bukit Batok is a non-mature estate, which means there aren’t as many amenities, schools and facilities in the area.

However, those who love greenery can consider living here as the neighbourhood is close to several large green spaces such as the Bukit Batok Nature Park, Dairy Farm Nature Park and Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. Just picture the verdant views from these super-tall HDB blocks in Singapore’s ‘countryside’.

Choa Chu Kang and Bukit Panjang (West)

Situated in the north-west region of Singapore is Choa Chu Kang and Bukit Panjang. Though these ‘ulu’ areas are more inaccessible and hard to reach, they are perfect for those who want to live far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. 

Although not quite as tall as the highest HDB blocks in Singapore, the high-floor flats here boast lots of fresh air and picturesque views thanks to the lower density of housing here.

High-rise Living in Singapore’s Tallest HDB Flats

Note that for some HDB estates, multiple blocks within the project do not go above 30 floors. Naturally, we didn’t include those in this article. If you do spot any discrepancies, do drop us a message to let us know. We hope this article has been helpful for you!
