CDL Group General Manager, Mr Chia Ngiang Hong, said, “Sengkang Grand Residences offers a one-of-its-kind vibrant urban living experience with seamless access to over 300,000 sq ft of lifestyle conveniences under one roof. Envisioned as the new heartbeat of Sengkang, the integrated development exemplifies the importance of placemaking and adds a new dimension to the concept of ‘integrated developments’ with its dynamic mix of residential and retail components with active civic spaces that serve the needs of the wider community.
“Residents can enjoy convenience to a myriad of amenities and multiple recreational options at their doorsteps as well as unmatched transport connectivity. Together with our partner CapitaLand, we will create a distinctive development with bustling community spaces that will redefine the Buangkok neighbourhood and uplift the area’s vibrancy.”
Mr Ronald Tay, CEO of CapitaLand Singapore, Malaysia & Indonesia, Residential & Retail, said, “Set to emerge as the new focal point for the Buangkok neighbourhood, the upcoming integrated development will inject vibrancy and enrich the lifestyle and community offerings for residents in the North-East region.”
“Given its convenient location atop a transport hub and direct access to a mall and community amenities, we are optimistic that Sengkang Grand Residences will be well-received. Together with our partner CDL, we look forward to activating the precinct with placemaking initiatives and bringing added value to the wider community with a premium integrated development.”
Leveraging synergies from CapitaLand’s and CDL’s proven expertise in mixed-use developments, the joint venture (JV) will transform this plum 3.7-hectare site at Sengkang Central into the first integrated community and lifestyle hub in the North-East region.
Complementing the residential component, the integrated development also comprises a three-storey mall spanning over 160,000 sq ft of gross floor area. Residents in the vicinity will enjoy convenient access to specialty stores, services, childcare facilities and a supermarket. They can participate in community events at the plaza or shop at the various retail offerings. Buangkok residents can also look forward to an exciting line-up of activities at the upcoming community club.
Unparalleled connectivity and access to amenities
Besides easy access to community and retail amenities at their doorsteps, residents will enjoy seamless and sheltered connectivity to Buangkok MRT Station and the future bus interchange.
Green Highline, a garden ramp, provides direct connectivity from the adjacent Compassvale Ancilla Park to the residences and hawker centre on the second storey of the integrated development.
Residents will enjoy excellent connectivity to public transportation nodes via the North-East MRT Line and future Cross Island MRT Line as well as easy access to major expressways such as CTE and KPE in the vicinity, making the Central Business District a mere 20-minute drive away. Sengkang Grand Residences is also well connected to major hubs such as the Seletar Aerospace Park and future Punggol Digital District.
Myriad of experiences in themed lifestyle clubs
Sengkang Grand Residences houses a comprehensive range of recreational facilities with two clubhouses and five exclusive lifestyle zones (Recreation, Adventure, Fitness, Wellness and Sensory Clubs), with each offering its own immersive facilities.
Within the Recreation Club, dine under the stars at the Poolside BBQ Pavilion, or partake in community gardening at the Teepee Gardens. The Adventure Club features Trampoline Thrill, Tower Tree Slide and Pets’ Play area that will delight children. A plethora of health and wellness facilities await, starting from the Fitness Club with its 50-metre Lap Pool and Parkour Gym, the Wellness Club with its relaxing Aqua Hammock and colour-changing Spectrum Spa Pool, and The Sensory Club, which offers a scenic TreeTop Walk and Five Senses Gardens. For nature and outdoor lovers, Punggol Park, Coney Island, Punggol Waterway and Punggol Reservoir are within close reach.
Eco-conscious, sensitive community design
With sustainable building design at its heart, the project features a passive cooling architectural design with residential blocks oriented to provide good natural ventilation in the common areas and residential units, as well as facade glazing to reduce solar heat gain. Units also have deep-recessed balconies which provide shade for the interiors. The development will be built using the innovative Prefabricated Prefinished Volumetric Construction (PPVC) method which improves site productivity and product quality control.
The CapitaLand-CDL JV clinched the site – the largest commercial and residential site awarded since 2015 – for S$777.78 million in August 2018. The bid was submitted on a Two-envelope Concept and Price Revenue tender system, with emphasis on the design concept.
