Project Details

But enough about what’s in Newton. What about what’s within the condominium compound? 

As expected of a high-end project, Kopar at Newton features quite a suite of condo facilities and amenities for residents. It is split into three zones: Stella, Aura and Vita. 

Stella is the clubhouse area, where you can socialise with neighbours and even host guests. There, you’ll find the reception area, a theatrette and gymnasium, among other things. 

Aura is the spa and wellness zone, where the numerous pools, massage rooms and spa facilities are. There’s even a nail salon. 

Vita is the activity zone of Kopar at Newton. Its name denotes vitality and vigour, which is brought to life through a curated suite of facilities like the 50m infinity pool, floating pool deck, children’s pool and various pavilions appealing to adults and children alike.

Kopar at Newton’s biggest draw is no doubt its location. It’s very accessible via public transport, and there are many attractive amenities within the vicinity.

Only 6 minutes from Newton MRT

Firstly, Kopar at Newton is within walking distance to Newton MRT station. It will only take you 6 minutes from your condo to Newton MRT station by foot. 

Although most who can afford a unit here will probably drive, this could be useful for those with children who need to make their own way around town. If you’re looking to eventually rent out a unit here, expats who don’t drive will appreciate the accessibility too. 

Within walking distance to Newton Food Centre

Here’s one for the foodies: Kopar at Newton is one street away from Newton Food Centre, where you can enjoy good food from noon to midnight. The iconic food centre was featured in the Crazy Rich Asians movie, and is home to many famous hawker stores. 

Well-connected to the CBD

Thirdly, Kopar at Newton is located within District 9, which is reasonably near the Central Business District (CBD). Residents who stay at Kopar at Newton will be well connected to the CBD both by car (12 minutes) as well as by public transport (30 minutes). Residents will also be one MRT stop away from the Orchard Road shopping district. 

Not to forget, Newton MRT station is an interchange, so you will have easy access to two MRT lines (the Downtown Line and North-South Line).

Upcoming Health City Novena to be ready in 2030

Kopar at Newton is also strategically located near Health City Novena, which is an upcoming medical hub that will be ready by 2030. The development will expand on the existing facilities of Tan Tock Seng Hospital with a new Ambulatory Centre, National Skin Centre expansion, National Healthcare Group headquarters and Integrated Intermediate Care Hub. Beyond the healthcare facilities, Health City Novena will also be integrated with research and education, commercial, leisure and public spaces. 

Being in close proximity to Health City Novena could increase the value of Kopar at Newton once the development is complete. It could also open up rental opportunities, which may be attractive for those intending to buy a unit for investment purposes.

Elite schools ACS Junior, ACS Barker Road and SCGS also nearby

Perhaps the biggest selling point for families, Kopar at Newton is near many “branded” primary and secondary schools. 

For instance, you will be within the 1km radius for enrolment into Anglo-Chinese School Junior. This will give your child an affiliation ticket to ACS (Barker Road), which is also in the Newton area. If you have a daughter, she can opt for enrolment in the Singapore Chinese Girls’ Primary School, which also comes with affiliation to Singapore Chinese Girls’ School.

For those who are just planning to start a family, there are plenty of preschools in the vicinity of Kopar at Newton. You will be spoilt for preschool choices for your newborn.
