The Only Way is UP
City Development Limited introduces a new concept for urban living, right in the stimulating locale of Robertson Quay. Simply known as UP @Robertson Quay, it’s a 99-year mixed use project to feature private residential units, commercial units and swanky hotel suites. Its cutting-edge concept will definitely define luxury living, even way before its 2016 completion date.
First of all, the development primes you for productivity and success, as it is situated just a few kilometers from the CBD, Manila Bay, and Orchard Road. It’s also bordered by various leisure centres such as Boat Quay, Mohammed Sultan, and Clarke Quay, as well as shopping malls like UE Square, Great World City and Liang Court. To get around, you can easily hop onto the MRT at the Somerset Station (North-South), or the Chinatown Station (North-East). There will even be the upcoming Havelock and Great World Stations on the Thomson-East Coast Line.
Secondly and more importantly, it ushers in an incomparable way of living:
Interiors That Will Make You Go WOW
Luxury living is all about classy, quality interiors, and that something UP won’t cut corners on. Imagine a bright, sunlight-filled living room, a spacious dining area, large bedrooms, a fully equipped open kitchen, and a balcony. Punctuate these with full-length windows, 3-meter high ceilings, marble floors, and chic finishing.
Abundant Living Options
UP will contain 70 residential apartments comfortably nestled away from both the commercial and hotel components, so you won’t have to worry about crowds and noise. With 22 one-bedroom, 21 one-bedroom +study, and 27 two-bedroom units, you can choose a home that’s just perfect for your metropolitan lifestyle.
But that’s not all – the one-bedroom +study and two-bedroom units can be further customized according to your needs. 27 of these units come with a glass partition that you can easily slide out to create an instant additional room, or fold away to enlarge the living room. This brilliant system also comes with a stowable Murphy bed, for those times when you have a guest staying over.
Specials for Lower-level Units
On the lowermost level of the residential area (which is the 4th level of the whole development), certain units include one or more of the following:
– An extra high ceiling (4.2 meters)
– A double-volume living room (7.2 meters)
– An over-kitchen mezzanine
– Storage under the stairs
– A private outdoor space that stretches into the development’s common swimming pool, doubling as your very own pool deck
Branded Appliances, Fixtures and Fittings
Your modern kitchen will be endowed with a refrigerator, a convection oven, a cooker hob, a hood, a microwave, and a washer-dryer. Some of these will be by the premium European brand, De Dietrich. Materials by Grohe and Duravit will also be installed in your kitchen and bathrooms.
A Wealth of Amenities
How would you like to go swimming in the tropical Singaporean weather? At UP, you can go swimming as often as you want to. The development has a 30 meter lap pool as well as a family pool, edged by a sunny pool deck. For your convenience, there are shower rooms and outdoor showers.
Love to laze outdoors? You can do that at the Trees Canopy Lounge or the Hammock Court.
Do you value your health and well-being? Even if you don’t, UP has a Gymnasium, a Yoga Deck, and an Aqua Gym. With these amenities just outside your door, it will be easy for you to keep in shape!.
Stressed? Head for the Jacuzzi and let those jets and bubbles wash your worries away.
Want to forge bonds with your loved ones? Gather them at the Gourmet Pavilion for a nice meal or some tete-a-tete over tea.
Planning a vacation but you don’t want the hassle of traveling? Remember that UP also has a hotel, with all the trappings of high hospitality. You’ll find deluxe suites and top-notch facilities, including a leisure pool, an open terrace, a gym, and a landscaped roof deck.
Agreeable Price Range
A prime, District 9 address such as Robertson Quay will naturally have a high price tag – around the range of S$2,500 per square foot. However, homes at UP are compact yet ingeniously laid out, making the units more affordable compared to those of other developments in the area. You can buy a luxury-filled, two-bedroom home for about S$2M, which isn’t so expensive considering the glamorous neighborhood. Especially if you’re a city person, it’s definitely worth it to make your new home at UP. It’s actually quite reachable if you’ve got the right financial plan and the right advisers, so be sure to compare home loan Singapore with iCompareLoan mortgage broker.
