Ensconced in heritage: Haus on Handy
Those who love the inspiring and eclectic mix of modernity and heritage our nation has to offer will be particularly drawn to this development. Located along Handy Road in District 9, Haus on Handy has the best of both worlds.
Nestled in a unique and highly convenient location that bridges the old and new Singapore, this development has the Dhoby Ghaut and Somerset shopping districts of Orchard, the historical districts of Bugis and City Hall, and the various offices of Winsland House I & II and The Atrium@Orchard all in its backyard. From restaurants to supermarkets, cinemas to museums, parks to fitness studios, schools to art galleries, Haus on Handy offers excellent accessibility to residents.

The 188-unit condominium even boasts of a slice of history right on home ground. Residents living in the two towers of Haus on Handy have the use of an exclusive clubhouse that is converted from a rare heritage bungalow, formerly known as the Tower House – a prominent landmark in the Mount Sophia neighbourhood. The “Club Haus” features several fitness studios ready for your workouts, and recreational spaces for rest and relaxation.
Those who like city life tend to appreciate smart living as well. To meet the needs of such residents, Haus on Handy’s interiors are fitted with smart technology and mod-cons of the highest quality from Hansgrohe, Villeroy & Boch, V-Zug and Bosch.
Prime positioning: Boulevard 88 (Freehold)
New and investment-worthy freehold property launches in the prime Orchard area are hard to come by – which is something discerning buyers know all too well. A highly anticipated development is the 154-unit ultra-luxury freehold Boulevard 88, which boasts an enviable address along Orchard Boulevard at the nexus of the Tanglin and Orchard Road sub-precincts.
In addition to its convenient location just a few minutes’ walk to Orchard MRT Station and the upcoming Orchard Boulevard MRT Station on the Thomson-East Coast Line, Singapore’s finest stores, restaurants and services are also at its doorstep, while the downtown financial and heritage civic districts as well as top schools are just a short drive away.
Each unit is positioned to offer the best views, and features a layout that maximises privacy. The bedrooms showcase premium-quality materials and fittings, such as the Italian Caccaro wardrobe for the bedrooms, while the master bathroom is lined with Van Gogh accent marble and comes with Antonio Lupi and Hansgrohe AXOR Citterio E fittings. The indulgence extends to the kitchen, where top-of-the-line Ernestomeda Icon cabinetry is used.
Both Boulevard 88’s commanding architectural design and luxurious lifestyle offerings add to its appeal. To connect the two 28-storey residential towers, Moshe Safdie, the Canadian-Israeli architect behind well-known landmarks like Jewel Changi Airport and the ArtScience Museum, put in place a stunning Sky Boulevard featuring a spectacular Infinity Sky Pool. Not only does it offer panoramic views of the cityscape, its handsome lines add depth to the skyline, making it another iconic standout like the Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort, which is yet another masterpiece by Moshe Safdie.
Boulevard 88 rises above a yet-to-open eight-storey luxury hotel – The Singapore EDITION Hotel. The literal connection with the global hospitality brand conceived by Ian Schrager and Marriott International gives residents direct access to more F&B and lifestyle services – perfect for well- heeled local and international buyers. It is set to offer a distinctive hospitality experience defined by Singapore’s embrace of the future, technology, arts and culture.
An iconic masterpiece: Nouvel 18 (Freehold/Ready to move in)
Designed by French architect and Pritzker Prize winner Jean Nouvel, Nouvel 18 adds a new and dramatic dimension to the uber-exclusive Ardmore Park-Anderson Road enclave.
This freehold development of two 36-storey residential towers is an original masterpiece of strong modernist lines, and the masterful arrangement of complementary tones of glass creates an ever-changing palette from every different angle – making Nouvel 18 an unmissable landmark.
Bringing nature indoors through vertical greenery is an important design concept here. This comes in the form of eight themed sky terraces across various floors, each offering panoramic views. Recreational facilities such as whirlpool jacuzzis, the gymnasium, the leisure pool and an open kitchen for an al fresco dining experience are spread across the sky terraces to elevate your lifestyle. The Club on level 2 features a screening room and gourmet dining room, making it ideal for hosting a poolside party where guests can lounge in comfort.
All these features are definitely planned with the idea of Nouvel 18 as an oasis of calm in the heart of Singapore’s most refined neighbourhood, which is just a few minutes’ walk from the Orchard Road shopping belt. Showcasing the ultimate in gracious high-rise living, each of the 156 units at Nouvel 18 is generously sized with a thoughtful layout, and immaculately appointed with designer fittings and finishes from Grohe and Duravit. The kitchen is fully equipped with Miele appliances, which are ideal for whipping up culinary creations of all kinds.
Nouvel 18 is managed by Trentwell Management Pte Ltd (a subsidiary of City Developments Limited).
Redefining luxurious East Coast living: Amber Park (Freehold)
Designed by award-winning SCDA Architects, the 21-storey Amber Park gives living the high life a whole new meaning. Within the development, there are two distinct recreation zones that allow residents to take full advantage of the fantastic coastal location: The Stratosphere on level 22 overlooking the sea, and the Lagoon Bay on level one.
The Stratosphere is a recreational deck measuring approximately 32,507 sq ft that connects the three 592-unit residential towers of the freehold Amber Park. It features a 600m rooftop jogging track that is among a handful in the world and the first of its kind for a Singapore condominium, offering unparalleled views of the East Coast at an elevation of 235 feet above sea level. Residents also get to enjoy indulgent facilities like a yoga deck, sea-facing gymnasium, spa pool, gourmet dining and lounge.
On level one, the Lagoon Bay features an expansive swimming lagoon and a hydrotherapy pool, as well as a barbecue pavilion and a private dining space at Club Amber. There is even a picturesque forest trail.
Regardless of the unit size, every apartment flaunts well-appointed interiors and thoughtful layouts. Dressed in a palette of warm wooden tones and soft greys, the bedrooms are a picture of understated elegance, while the bathrooms feature sophisticated wares and fittings from Villeroy & Boch, Geberit and Grohe. The kitchen is fully equipped with appliances from V-Zug and Bosch.
Well connected via major expressways such as the ECP, MCE, KPE and PIE to the rest of Singapore, Amber Park is just a three-minute walk to the upcoming Tanjong Katong MRT on the Thomson-East Coast Line, as well as a short drive to the CBD, Changi Airport and the Marina Bay area. With an extensive array of dining options at East Coast Park and key shopping malls like I12 Katong and Parkway Parade nearby, residents do not have to venture far for daily necessities, enjoyable meals or family activities.
