As the world adapts to a new normal, the desirability of a residence is increasingly extending beyond the usual attributes of design and convenience to liveability, recreation, security and sustainability.
To fulfil all these new expectations in Singapore’s urban landscape, look no further than the iconic South Beach Residences, a 190-unit property situated atop the five-star JW Marriott Singapore South Beach and part of the integrated development right within the Civic District.
At its doorstep is a stellar F&B tenant mix, which includes cafes, watering holes and fine restaurants – from Wild Honey and Masaaki to Akira Back and Madame Fan. Within close proximity are landmarks like Raffles Hotel, Esplanade – Theatres on The Bay, Marina Bay Sands and National Gallery Singapore. Directly accessible to Esplanade and City Hall MRT interchange, South Beach Residences offers excellent connection to the rest of the island.
Now that staying home is de rigueur, residents are poised to enjoy an unrivalled standard of living at South Beach Residences. They receive exclusive access to the services at JW Marriott, where a team of dedicated hosts provides on-demand concierge service and plays a significant value-added role during times of social restrictions, from ensuring regular checks on visitors to placing delivery orders and arranging dine-in options.
As the influence of the built environment on physical and mental wellness becomes increasingly important, home buyers are also putting a strong emphasis on liveability. Constructed with sustainability and good environmental designs and practices in mind, South Beach boasts many green features, including the signature wave-like microclimatic canopy, which promotes natural ventilation, filters sunlight and harvests renewable energy. Even in our tropical climate, residents get to enjoy the amenities outdoors in privacy and comfort thanks to two epic sky gardens, which offer space and tranquillity in addition to the lush greenery that helps to enhance air quality.
Every unit at South Beach Residences is also designed to maximise space and versatility with generously sized bedrooms, even for a 1,216 sq ft two-bedroom apartment where a study can be incorporated into its living area. Some units showcase a balcony, which is perfect for conversion into a home office or mini outdoor gym, thanks to the superb ventilation and spectacular views. In fact, residents will eventually enjoy long- term gains from the building’s green, sun-shielding architecture in the form of lower energy usage, resulting in reduced maintenance costs.
Indeed, South Beach Residences offers an urban lifestyle proposition and prime investment no one can deny, especially when it rides the robust rejuvenation of the Ophir-Rochor corridor. For those seeking a compact residence that combines the best of all worlds, now is an opportune time to consider this multiple award-winning property.
