Location

Nestled within lush greenery, Avenue South Residence is a first-of-its kind condominium with an unrivalled location near mega projects and direct connectivity to the scenic Rail Corridor. Mega projects in the vicinity include the Greater Southern Waterfront and SGH Campus. The 56-storey development redefines the live, work and play lifestyle due to its proximity to dynamic work opportunities, F&B offerings and entertainment options.

Connectivity

In terms of accessibility, residents can cruise down either of the three neighbouring expressways – Ayer Rajah Expressway, Central Expressway and Marina Coastal Expressway to various regions in Singapore. Enviably close to the Central Business District and Orchard Road Shopping Belt, one need only take an eight minutes’ drive down the expressways, or walk to the nearby Outram Park MRT station, merely two stops away from Raffles Place MRT station. It is also close to the upcoming Cantonment MRT station on the Circle Line. With sustainability as the new buzzword, residents can also cycle through undulating stretches of greenery down the upcoming Rail Corridor, from Anson to Marina Bay.

Under the URA Draft Masterplan 2019, Avenue South Residence will become an even more attractive investment option. Close proximity to new mega projects, such as the Greater Southern Waterfront, will strengthen the development’s value proposition.

Schools

Avenue South Residence provides families with strong support infrastructure, be it securing a place at the childcare centre within the compound to facilitate the needs of working parents, to being within a 1-kilometre radius of established primary schools such as CHIJ (Kellock) and Radin Mas Primary School. For families with older children, well-known tertiary institutions such as Crescent Girls’ School, Gan Eng Seng School, National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore Management University (SMU) and Singapore Polytechnic (SP) are within the vicinity, to meet their educational needs.

Lifestyle

A thrilling array of landmark attractions lay close to Avenue South Residence. From experiencing vibrant cultures at Chinatown, to soaking in good old-fashion fun at the theme parks in Universal Studios Singapore. With the array of lifestyle choices available near Avenue South Residence, residents will be spoilt for choice in ways to enjoy life to the fullest. Everyday conveniences are served through nearby dining options and shopping malls.

Summary

Avenue South Residence is a rare find. Not only does the project offer quality furnishings and comprehensive amenities at reasonable prices, the development embodies brilliant concepts whilst balancing the old with the new – integrating conserved heritage apartments from ages past with burnishing 56th-storied twin towers. Careful planning was also undertaken to ensure all the units in the two towers are oriented in the north-south direction with none looking into other units.

For potential investors seeking prime city-fringe property with a growth story to match, then Avenue South Residence could be your best bet.
