One-North Eden is a 165-unit, 99-year leasehold mixed-use development located in District 5. Located along Barracks Rise, the residential development features two residential blocks with a distinct roof design.
Jointly developed by One North Development, One-North Eden will be one of the rare condos that will be built in the One-North region, i.e. Singapore’s very own Silicon Valley for research, innovation and test-bedding.
The project consists of two, 13 and 15-storey blocks that are nicely spaced out from one another. It will sit on a decent-size land of 62,202 sq ft, which is about the size of one football field.
It is situated beside One-North Residences and in the middle of the One-North region amongst the surrounding Business Park buildings like Fusionpolis, Biopolis, Metropolis and Innovis. Like One-North Residences, its position nicely overlooks Nepal Park and the neighbouring low rise buildings such as Anglo-Chinese Junior College.
One-North Eden: Developer
One-North Eden is a joint development by Hong Leong Holdings and Mitsui Fudosan.
Hong Leong Holdings is the property development arm of the Hong Leong Group. It is one of the pioneers of real estate development in Singapore and has delivered many quality residential homes to homebuyers in Singapore. It is also one of the forward-looking developers in Singapore that continues to pursue improvement and expansion while maintaining its high design, customer service and sustainability standards.
With over five decades in the property business, Hong Leong Holdings has established itself as a market leader in the residential real estate market. A household name in building high quality homes, some of Hong Leong’s most distinctive and iconic residential developments in Singapore include The Meyerise, One Balmoral, Penrose, and The Avenir.
Hong Leong Group, which comprises CDL and GuocoLand, has won multiple property accolades such as:
- Best Developer (Asia) at PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards 2020 (GuocoLand)
- Urban Land Institute FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence Awards 2019 – World Gold Winner, Residential (High Rise) (CDL)
- 2020 ULI Asia Pacific Awards for Excellence (ULI)
- > 10 CDL developments have received global recognition at the FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence Awards
Mitsui Fusodan might not be a familiar name for the local property scene, but that’s because they go into joint ventures with local developers to develop residential development. And they also have a strong presence in Japan. It is one of the core companies of the Mitsui Group, which is one of the largest keiretsu in Japan and among the largest corporate groups in the world.
Since 1966, Mitsui Fusodan has been developing residential properties in Singapore together with Hong Leong Holdings under One North Development Pte Ltd. Developments such as Parc Emily, The Trevose, The Rainforest (BCA UD Mark Gold – Design) and Goodwood Gardens are some of the highlights of their joint development.
One-North Eden’s location in District 5 makes it one of the few condos with direct access to the business parks in the One-North area. This makes the development a good own-stay/rental option for those who are working in the area.
Not just that, being in the heart of the innovation district, residents get to enjoy the multitude of amenities that were built to complement the business park. For example, you can get easy access to healthcare at the nearby National University Hospital (NUH) and the variety of food options at One-North.
One-North Eden is also within walking distance from the one-north MRT station, which makes travelling to and from the condo easy. In just a stop, you can transit at the Buona Vista interchange towards the Eastern and Western parts of Singapore via the EWL.
It’s also excellent for families as the condo is in the middle of a cluster of prestigious schools. Fairfield Methodist School, Anglo-Chinese Junior College and Anglo-Chinese Independent are all within 1 km.
In terms of green spaces, One-North Eden does have one small nearby green space at One-North Park. But if you prefer bigger parks, you can always take a longer stroll to Kent Ridge Park or West Coast Park. Not just that, you also have the upcoming Rail Corridor, which will integrate with the expansion plans for the business park at One-North. The ongoing Rail Corridor development should be ready by the time One-North Eden TOP.
One-North Eden: Accessibility
One-North Eden is 750m away from the nearest MRT interchange at Buona Vista MRT station. From Buona Vista MRT, you are seven stops away from Raffles Place MRT in the Central Business District (CBD). The total journey will take you approximately 26 minutes, according to Moovit.
Alternatively, if you don’t want to take such a long walk, you can either take bus 198 to Commonwealth MRT on the EWL or take the CCL/DTL/NSL route if you don’t mind the frequent changing of trains.
For those who drive, you can reach the CBD pretty easily. Once you exit North Buona Vista Road, go onto Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE) followed by Central Expressway (CTE) and you will arrive at your destination. Getting to the CBD by your own transport will take you about 12 minutes.

One-North Eden: D5 URA Master Plan
From the URA Master Plan for District 5, we can observe that there is more transformation of the One-North area that will be ongoing. For instance, the white spaces at the bottom left are still subject to land use planning. It is anyone’s guess on what the land will be used for in the next five to 10 years. There are also some plots that are set aside for residential buildings (bottom right) and commercial buildings (bottom centre).
Another thing to note is the expanding green spaces that will just be behind One-North Eden. While there are no firm plans yet, this does signal that residents can look forward to green spaces in your backyard in the years to come.
There are a couple of exciting developments to look out for in the Queenstown estate.
- Rochester Park is currently undergoing a transformation into a mixed-use executive centre for talent and leadership development
- A new mixed-use development will be built in Holland Village, which means more shopping malls within the vicinity of One-North Eden
- The development of Dawson estate will add new commercial amenities, Market & Food Centre and community facilities that will provide more recreational and dining options for residents at One-North Eden
The Rail Corridor is a remake of the former railway line that links the Northern to the Southern parts of Singapore. This trans-island green artery will turn into a community space that links one million residents when it is connected in 2021. One-North Eden’s location nicely falls into part of the Rail Corridor plans, which will let residents enjoy greater access to the other green spaces across Singapore.
Not only that, but the Rail Corridor will also connect One-North Eden residents to the upcoming Greater Southern Waterfront transformation on the Southern Coast of Singapore. It will create a continuous waterfront promenade that connects workspaces and living spaces to create a distinctive urban living experience.
Besides expecting better recreational experiences, those buying a unit at One-North Eden can also look forward to a potential pool of tenants working at the new business space in Greater Southern Waterfront to rent out to.
One-North Eden offers a unique homebuying opportunity into the One-North area where there has been limited supply of residential developments in the past decade.
For own stay, One-North Eden’s location in One-North and proximity to the Rail Corridor and Greater Southern Waterfront transformation packs a lot of and promise on the living experience that one can enjoy upon moving into One-North Eden. On the investment side, One-North Eden’s location should have a good pool of tenants for landlords to take your pick from.
One-North Eden’s showflat is located at Nucleos Building, 21 Biopolis Road and is open daily from 9am to 9pm. Thinking of getting a unit at One-North Eden? Check out the available units for sale at One-North Eden on PropertyGuru. Or read our reviews of other condo projects here.
