Project Details

Sengkang Grand Residences is an upcoming 680-unit, 99-year leasehold development located in District 19. Jointly developed by City Developments Limited (CDL) and CapitaLand, Sengkang Grand Residences is set to become the third largest mixed development in the North-Eastern region of Singapore. 

The project consists of nine, 13-storey blocks that are nicely spaced out from one another. The spacious layout of the blocks is made possible because of the large land area (401,012 sq ft) that Sengkang Grand Residences sits on, which is equivalent to the size of five full-sized football fields.

What’s notable about this development is that it’s integrated with an MRT station (Buangkok MRT), a bus interchange, community club, community plaza, childcare centre, hawker centre and a retail mall (Sengkang Grand Mall). The condo sits directly above Buangkok MRT and bus interchange, which are accessible by lift. 

As you would imagine, living in an integrated development comes with its own conveniences; you don’t have to travel a million miles to get your basic essentials and groceries, and with a shopping mall below, you’ll have lots of dining and shopping options.

At the same time, you have the hawker centre at your service if you are looking for more affordable hawker fare for your day-to-day meals. 

Apart from retail therapy, residents can also engage in active learning, living your passion, play your favourite sports or simply mingle with neighbours at the community club. Last but not least, the seamless connectivity at Sengkang Grand Residences opens up plenty of options for you to embark on adventures outside of Buangkok. Residents are just a lift away from Buangkok MRT and a few MRT stops away from other parts of Singapore.

Sengkang Grand Residences: Developer

Sengkang Grand Residences is a joint development by two mega developers in Singapore: CDL and CapitaLand. The residential area will be developed by CDL while CapitaLand will be developing the Sengkang Grand Mall that sits beneath Sengkang Grand Residences.

Both developers are top-notch developers with years of experience under its belt. Not just that, they are also award-winning developers for many of their projects.

As a pioneering force in sustainability, CDL has received multiple BCA Green Mark awards for their past developments. They have also won the World Gold Winner (Residential, high rise) of the FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence Awards in 2019 and the prestigious 2020 ULI Asia Pacific Awards for Excellence for one of its projects – New Futura. 

CapitaLand is also another award-winning developer both locally and internationally. They clinched the Best Overall Developer (Singapore) in the Euromoney Real Estate Survey in 2019. Like CDL, CapitaLand is also a winner of the FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence Awards in 2019 for its Raffles City Hangzhou development.

Given their strong track record and reputation in delivering quality condo projects, homebuyers can expect Sengkang Grand Residences to be another top quality condo development from CDL.

Sengkang Grand Residences: 1-bedroom + study (Type A1S, 474 sq ft) review

Sengkang Grand - 1bedroom + study

The 1-bedroom + study showflat (474 sq ft) is designed to suit the needs of young professionals and young couples who are looking for an affordable unit.

The layout and design of the unit ensure that space is fully utilised with the kitchen area seamlessly designed as part of the entrance corridor. Essential electrical items such as the washing machine/dryer and fridge are nicely concealed into the cabinet, which gives the kitchen area a clean look. The design of the showflat also gives the unit a visual feel that the kitchen area is cordoned off the living room area, which makes the living room area look much more spacious.

The bedroom + study is amalgamated into one with extra space for the placement of your study area. For small unit families, the study area can also be converted into a baby cot area for your newborn. Those who don’t need the study area can also consider turning the extra space into a walk-in closet.

One thing to like about the design of the master bedroom toilet is that it comes with a modern and yet functional design. The toilet water tank is nicely concealed as part of the wall, which makes it feel like you are living in a hotel room.

The master bathroom comes with multiple dual features such as dual door access and dual showerheads. The dual door access provides easy access and convenience whenever you have guests coming over to your place. The dual shower heads allow you to choose between a rain shower or standing shower. 

Furthermore, what-you-see-is-what-you-get; apart from the overhead lighting, towel and toiletries, the bathroom comes with the same fittings and finishes as the photo above.

Sengkang Grand Residences: 2-bedroom premium + study (Type B5PS, 764 sq ft) review

Sengkang Grand - 2bedroom premium + study

The 2-bedroom premium + study unit (764 sq ft) is ideal for small families. As can be seen in the showflat image above, the bigger balcony area allows you to fit a four-seater table, which can double up as a dining area or an extra space for gatherings. 

Similar to the 1-bedroom + study unit, essential appliances are also nicely hidden behind the cupboards. This gives the unit a nice and clean look. The ample space in the 2-bedroom premium + study unit also gives rise to the possibility of placing an island in the middle of the living area that can act as both a dining table as well as a space to whip up your next meal.

Sengkang Grand Residences: 3-bedroom premium + flexi (Type C5PF, 1,012 sq ft) review

Sengkang Grand - 3bedroom premium + flexi

For those with bigger families, you might want to consider the 3-bedroom premium + flexi unit . with 1,012 sq ft of space, there’s enough room for the entire family.

The master bedroom fits a king-size bed with enough walking space to spare, whilst the common bedrooms can fit a double bed and still have plenty of walking area. Having three such bedrooms means that you can potentially have 3-generation families living together without compromising your own personal space.

sengkang grand residences review

For homebuyers who prefer to have a separate kitchen concept, the 3-bedroom premium + flexi comes with a kitchen fitted with glass panels and glass doors to separate the kitchen from your living area. One thing we like about the design is the use of glass which lets you keep an eye on the kids while you cook.

The kitchen area is also linked to a small utility room that allows flexible use. For instance, you can use it as a room for your foreign domestic worker with a built-in bed. You can also choose to use the room for extra storage space.

Sengkang Grand Residences: Fittings and furnishings

Every unit comes fitted with branded kitchen appliances and bathroom fittings. Each home is fitted with high-quality and durable furnishings that not only gives your home the luxury vibes, but it is also designed to be functional and practical. These include:

  • De Dietrich glass hob
  • De Dietrich oven
  • De Dietrich fridge
  • De Dietrich washer/dryer
  • Duravit wares
  • Hansgrohe fittings

Sengkang Grand Residences Site Plan

Since Sengkang Grand Residences is an integrated development, it is located right above the Buangkok MRT station as well as the Sengkang Grand Mall that will be developed together with the residential area.

Sengkang Grand Residences Site Plan

Thanks to the scale of Sengkang Grand Residences, the developer is able to provide a variety of facilities to its residents. Apart from the typical clubhouse, gym and pool, residents can enjoy some unique facilities that you seldom see at other condo developments. 

For instance, Sengkang Grand Residences’ poolside BBQ pavilion comes with access to a pool. It lets you have the luxury of holding your own pool party while spending time with your family and friends.

Sengkang Grand Residences also comes with pet-friendly facilities such as its pet play area where your pets can roam around freely. There are also plenty of child friendly play areas like trampoline trail, tower tree slide and animal sculpture playground for your child to have fun.

Sengkang Grand Connect To Ancilla Park

Residents who enjoy being surrounded by greenery will appreciate the developers’ effort to incorporate greenery into the development. For instance, Sengkang Grand Residences comes with its own treetop walk in the condo compound.

In addition, Sengkang Grand Residences is also conveniently connected to the existing Compassvale Ancilla Park via the Green Highline access gate. With a good amount of facilities and an external park, residents can unwind and enjoy nature after a long day of work.

Situated in Compassvale Bow,  Sengkang Grand Residences is set to improve the livability of the area by integrating the Sengkang Grand Mall, a hawker centre and a community club to the residents living in the area.

Sengkang Grand Residences is an integrated development that is located right above a suite of lifestyle conveniences that will be developed together with the residential area such as the Buangkok MRT station and Sengkang Grand Mall.

sengkang grand residences location

What makes this area unique is the upcoming developments in the next few years; Hougang MRT station, which is a stop away from Buangkok MRT, will be an interchange along the upcoming Cross Island Line (CRL), It will provide greater accessibility and connect commuters from Pasir Ris to Bright Hill by 2020.

Sengkang Grand Residences is also located at the intersection of the upcoming Punggol Digital District and the new estate on the existing Paya Lebar Airbase. These factors could potentially increase the value of the area.

Residents can enjoy the convenience and access to any destination from Buangkok MRT as it is only a few stops away from interchanges like Serangoon MRT and Dhoby Ghaut MRT to transit onto other MRT lines like the North-South Line (NSL) and Circle Line (CCL). The future bus interchange also provides more commuting options, which makes going out an effortless adventure.

It is also a short drive to the working hubs of Seletar Aerospace Park and the upcoming Punggol Digital District (PDD).

Sengkang Grand Residences: Accessibility 

While Sengkang Grand Residences is located in the North-Eastern part of Singapore, commuting from Buangkok MRT station to the Central Business District (CBD) is just within 40 minutes by MRT.

Besides the Buangkok MRT on the North-East Line (NEL), Hougang MRT will be an interchange station for both the NEL and the upcoming CRL by 2030, connecting East-West commuters from Pasir Ris to Bright Hill. Once the CRL is up and running, you can expect greater accessibility to the East and the West of Singapore. 

For those who drive, travelling time from Sengkang Grand Residences to the CBD will be a short 22 minutes’ drive away, thanks to the connectivity to both Central Expressway (CTE) and Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE).

Sengkang Grand Residences: Price

The land that Sengkang Grand Residences will occupy was bought by CapitaLand (in partnership with CDL) at a tender price of $777.78 million in 2018. This translates to a cost price of $923.60 per sq ft for the developers.

The units at Sengkang Grand Residences were sold at an average price per sq ft of $1,700 during their launch, and sold 216 out of 280 units launched for sale.

For some, the premium is justified given that you will enjoy the myriad of facilities at Sengkang Grand Residences and the surrounding amenities like Sengkang Grand Mall and hawker centre that are integrated into Sengkang Grand Residences. Thus, that’s one of the reasons why Sengkang Grand Residences has so far enjoyed a good response with around 40% of the units sold (updated: 31st August 2020).

Sengkang Grand Residences: D19 URA Master Plan

Sengkang grand residences ura master plan

Based on the URA Master Plan, there will be upcoming HDB developments in the area along Compassvale Bow as well as the development of a business district near Buangkok Medical Park. Furthermore, close to the development is a Reserve Site and a Business 1 Site, though a detailed plan isn’t out yet, expect a business district in time to come. 

With lots of upcoming nearby developments, residents and/or tenants might have to experience some level of inconvenience and noise. However, once the business district is complete, it should elevate the value of Sengkang Grand Residences, which would benefit you if you’re an investor/homebuyer. 

In the grand scheme of things, the biggest appreciation of Sengkang Grand Residences will probably in the next two decades. That’s because from 2023, the Punggol Digital District transformation (slated for completion by 2023) and the Paya Lebar Airbase transformation (2030 onwards) will redefine the whole landscape of the North-Eastern area. 

The Punggol Digital District (PDD) will become the next generation business district that combines a vibrant economic and learning hub with a community playground and green space. 

Slated to become Singapore’s next Silicon Valley, PDD will create 28,000 jobs spanning across technology such as data analytics, IoT, AI and cybersecurity. The new Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) campus will also be located within PDD to cater to 12,000 students in the future.

The relocation of the Paya Lebar Airbase will enable the transformation of the neighbouring Paya Lebar area into a progressive and sustainable new town. Investors who are looking to buy Sengkang Grand Residences for investment can expect the transformation of Paya Lebar Airbase into a new estate to enhance the nearby Sengkang area, including the Sengkang Grand Residences which is closely located to the Paya Lebar Airbase.

With Sengkang Grand Residences sitting right in the middle of the two major developments in Singapore’s North-East, the transformation of the two neighbouring estates will be a boon for both investors and residents of Sengkang Grand Residences.
