CapitaLand Residential Singapore and Mitsubishi Estate Asia Pte. Ltd. MEA jointly unveiled their upcoming condominium at Bishan Central recently, which will be designed by renowned international architect Moshe Safdie as a distinctive example of new urban living. Located on a 11,997-squaremetre (129,137 square feet) site in the heart of Bishan Central, one of Singapore’s choice residential areas, the condominium will comprise approximately 500 apartments across two 38-storey towers.
Moshe Safdie has introduced a strong and distinctive stepping form for the condominium, moving past the traditional approach of deploying individual towers to create a three-dimensional matrix of homes, private terraces and public gardens. His design provides for lush vertical greenery, optimal orientation relative to the sun, naturally ventilated units, and generous views.
Instead of independent towers, the condominium’s two towers are linked by three bridging “sky gardens”. This offers opportunities for commonly shared garden and leisure spaces, while giving rise to an overall mass that is porous and open. This non-traditional approach allows air to breeze through and sunlight to penetrate, while maximising views for families and for the community spaces. Residents on the towers’ upper floors will be able to enjoy breathtaking views of the lush greenery of Bishan Park. At ground level, 70% of the site area will be developed into a series of lush gardens, outdoor event rooms, swimming pools, and walking paths for residents to enjoy their leisure hours.
Mr Safdie added: “While providing an unprecedented quality of life, mitigating a sense of density and concentration and maximising contact with nature, the complex also results in a village-like clustering of residential units, echoing hillside developments and the integration of architecture and plant life into a singular experience. Carefully-considered design features have greatly expanded family and community space amenities, in part by providing generous community gardens and outdoor spaces on the ground and in the air as well as individual penthouse-like roof terraces and gardens for more than one-third of the individual residences.”
CapitaLand Residential Singapore acquired the site at Bishan Central for S$550.1 million through a government land sales tender in February 2011. CapitaLand Residential Singapore holds a 75% equity stake in the project while MEA, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi Estate Co., Ltd. (“MEC”), holds the remaining 25% equity stake. CapitaLand will be the lead development manager for the project, responsible for the full spectrum of sales and marketing, product design and development, and project management.
Design and development works are in progress and the condominium is targeted to be launched for sale in the first half of 2012. Temporary Occupation Permit for the condominium is expected to be obtained in 2015.
