A crowd of of 9,000 people wee drawn to the weekend preview of JadeScape. JadeScape, Singapore’s first fully-smart multi-generational residential project, is Qingjian Realty’s latest residential project. The JadeScape Sales Gallery is located beside Bishan MRT station and opposite of Bishan Bus Interchange while the actual development sits on the former Shunfu Ville site. The Sales Gallery opened to the public last Saturday, 8 September 2018, and remains open daily from 10am to 7pm.
Yen Chong, deputy general manager of Qingjian Realty (South Pacific) Group, said: “We designed JadeScape with a unique offering to complement its outstanding location. We expected the market to welcome the project but the response is overwhelming.”
“This is the first launch in the area in three years. We have been receiving queries about JadeScape for months now. The turnout is really not surprising. The developer has also attracted many families by offering a mix of unit types,” said George Tan, executive director at Savills Residential, which is marketing the project. He attributed the strong turnout to the fact that there hasn’t been a new launch in the Thomson area in three years. Besides Savills, there are 4 other marketing agents – Savills Singapore, ERA Realty, PropNex Realty and SLP International.
JadeScape was bought en bloc by Qingjian Realty for $638 million in 2016, and it is the largest collective sale since 2007 at that time.
