The new and eco-friendly Hilllview Community Club on Hillview Rise features lush greenery on its exterior and interior facades, and a special rain harvesting system which would help to conserve water.
Here's a fun fact: the CC is formerly known as Princess Elizabeth Estate Community Centre and is one of Singapore's earliest CCs. Its most popular feature back in the early 60s would be the black & white TV where neighbours would gather around to watch the news or cartoons! As the CC stands proudly in its original location today, the spirit of community bonding remains.
Singapore’s homegrown fitness brand, True Group is excited to announce its plans for a new-concept fitness centre at Millenia Walk, which will become the largest commercial gym facility in Singapore.
The facility will be opened in two phases with a 23,000 sq ft area opening in June 2019, and an additional contiguous 18,700 sq ft space opening by the third quarter of the year.
True Fitness will be vacating its current Suntec City location in mid 2019, having outgrown it. In what will be a seamless transition for its members, the huge new 41,700 sq ft facility at Millenia Walk will enable the True Group to showcase its revolutionary ‘club-within-a-club’ concept which will feature TFX, True Group’s newest premier club, as well as curated fitness trends and workouts from the world over, giving True members options to experience the latest in fitness concepts and workouts without having to leave the club.
“This club will be the confluence of ‘big box’ gyms and boutique gyms, leveraging on the economies of scale that larger clubs enjoy,” said Sean Tan, Director, True Group. “We not only aim to offer more variety and choice in workout options, we are also taking a lead in the development of the fitness community via collaborations with third party boutique studios, and new fitness concept developers,” he added.
The True Group is currently in active expansion mode and will be opening its flagship TFX club in the new Funan shopping mall in mid 2019, whilst having recently launched its premium ‘Yoga Edition’ branded yoga club in Taipei (at the former location occupied by Pure Yoga, which exited the Taiwan market in January).
Creating components for people to live long, healthy and fun lives; lululemon makes modern & technical clothing for yoga, running and most other sweaty pursuits.
Founded by Chip Wilson in Vancouver, Canada in 1998, lululemon is a yoga-inspired, technical athletic apparel company for women and men. What started as a design studio by day and yoga studio by night soon became a standalone store in November of 2000 on West 4th Avenue in Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighbourhood.
Their vision for their store was to create more than a place where people could get gear to sweat in, they wanted to create a community hub where people could learn and discuss the physical aspects of healthy living, mindfulness and living a life of possibility. It was also important for them to create real relationships with their guests and understand what they were passionate about, how they liked to sweat and help them celebrate their goals. Today, they do this in their stores around the globe.
