SPECIAL ADVERTISING FEATURE: This nature-themed project is among the most affordable freehold mixed-development in Singapore.
Set in a leafy low-rise neighbourhood of Changi, Parc Komo is a newly launched freehold residential mixed development that is an extension of the tranquillity of its surroundings. With prices starting from just $1,394 per square foot (psf), the opportunity of owning a freehold home has rarely come at a more affordable price point.
Envisioned as a resort within a lush tropical paradise, Parc Komo seeks to emulate Changi’s idyllic coastal lifestyle, drawing inspiration from the iconic Heritage Trees, and flora and fauna that surround the kampong-styled boardwalks at Changi.
Parc Komo comprises of 276 residential units across ten blocks, in addition to 28 retail units. When completed in 2023, the condo will boast a full suite of facilities and several other distinct advantages that should place it top of mind among buyers looking for a condo in the Outside Central Region (OCR) of Singapore.
Parc Komo: Designed for relaxation
Parc Komo is located along the tree-lined Upper Changi Road North in District 17, and is a redevelopment of the former Changi Gardens by listed construction and property development group CEL Development. It aptly derives its name and concept from the Japanese word Komorebi, which describes the interplay between light and leaves when sunlight filters through trees.
It is this peaceful and delicate phenomenon of light and leaves that gave shape to its nature-themed design, helmed by the renowned Park + Associates architectural firm. Mindfulness and overall wellness are core design concepts.
To retain a peaceful, laid-back vibe, CEL decided to build just 276 residential units on the 202,000 square feet (sq ft) site, fewer than the 330 units that the site could accommodate. CEL’s commitment to keep the density of the development low affords residents with a greater sense of space and tranquillity, and a greater enjoyment of Parc Komo’s abundant facilities and common areas.
The lower-density advantage
There are various advantages that come with a lower-density project, with added privacy, a quiet environment and a more closely-knit community being just a few.
With a lower density, crowdedness will not be an issue for residents of Parc Komo who will benefit from extra comfort and freedom when using the project’s facilities and common areas. Residents also stand to benefit from the better upkeep and maintenance of common areas and condo facilities. For investors, projects with fewer units tend to offer better investment potential since there are fewer competing landlords within the same project. Moreover, the lifestyle associated with living in an exclusive, smaller project contrasts against a much larger one and could prove more appealing to expatriate tenants.
Furthermore, Parc Komo sets itself apart from smaller boutique projects with a full suite of facilities that include large swimming pool areas, including a full 50-metre lap pool, and unique offerings such as Glamping, Reading Pods, Herb Pavilion, Groto Jacuzzi and Night Water Lily Pond.
To cater to different buyers’ needs, Parc Komo offers a mix of unit sizes ranging from 452 sq ft for a one-bedroom apartment to 1,905 sq ft for the largest five-bedroom penthouse. Due to popular demand for one-bedder units at Parc Komo, all such unit types have been snapped up. Prices for the balance units start from $881,000 for a one-bedroom-plus-study to $2.56 million for a five-bedroom unit.
A tranquil oasis
Central to Parc Komo is the development’s rustic, tropical theme. This is evident even from the facade; the entrance of the condominium is framed with lush green landscaping, with the drop-off is flanked by a series of stylish water features. An elegantly crafted stream, with natural rock and greenery separates the residential and commercial spaces.
Within the development, meticulously constructed swathes of greenery and water features extend to the upper floors. Streams flow along the edges of the building, winding through a designated Sunset Deck and adjoining Night Water Lily Pond to create a tranquil botanical oasis. Residents seeking to reconnect with nature may even grow their own herbs at the Herb Pavilion and urban farming plots.
Meanwhile, those in need of some quiet time may take a dip in the leisure pool, unwind in the Grotto hidden beneath the trees, meditate on the Yoga Deck or simply, immerse themselves in a book in airy reading pods that resemble treehouses.
Truly, Parc Komo is a sanctuary that you can call home.
Convenience at your doorstep
Parc Komo will be the only mixed development with both residential and commercial offerings in the Changi vicinity. Komo Shoppes, which comprises 28 units across two floors and spans over 32,000 sq ft of commercial space, is seamlessly integrated within the development. This means that residents will enjoy an assortment of lifestyle amenities and conveniences right at their doorstep. Within the home, smart home features, such as digital locks, aircon control and a visitor management system, will also be incorporated.
Located less than a 10-minute drive away from Changi Airport, residents of Parc Komo will also benefit from the condo’s strategic location in the East of Singapore. Seamless access to business and logistics districts in Changi North, Changi Airfreight Centre, Changi Business Park and Singapore Expo will make Parc Komo a choice location for many residents. For those working further afield, three expressways—Tampines Expressway (TPE), Pan Island Expressway (PIE) and East Coast Parkway (ECP)—are within easy access.
For leisure and play, Parc Komo is also ideally located. All of residents’ shopping and dining-out needs can be fulfilled at nearby malls such as Changi City Point, Tampines Mall, Tampines One and White Sands. Of course, the spectacular Jewel Changi Airport will be a Parc Komo resident’s favourite hangout. For nature lovers, parks such as East Coast Park, Pasir Ris Park and Changi Beach Park are also nearby, with the latter two accessible via Park Connectors. Parc Komo will also be within a short distance from the future Loyang MRT station on the Cross Island Line (CRL) when it is complete in 2029.
Capitalising on Changi’s transformation
The allure of Parc Komo is further enhanced by its location within Changi Region, the city’s eastern gateway that will continue to undergo rapid development and rejuvenation under the URA Master Plan 2019.
Plans to transform Changi Region into an integrated work-live-play environment hinges on its proximity to Changi Airport, and includes key districts such as Changi Aviation Park and the Changi East Urban District.
At the heart of Changi’s vibrant ecosystem is the Changi Business Park, a business enclave with multi-national companies, research firms and academia within the same ecosystem. Market watchers estimate there are around 30,000 professionals working in the Park as the key growth area takes shape.
The area will continue to transform on a massive scale within the next decade. As these plans are set in motion, homeowners can expect their properties to benefit from capital appreciation. In the same vein, rentals are also expected to improve with the larger catchment of tenants from the increased job opportunities within the eastern business gateway.
In addition, new cycling paths will be built in Changi to complement the existing Park Connector Network and on-road cycling lanes to connect Tampines and the East Coast. These new transportation links will offer residents greater options to travel, as well as more recreational opportunities in time to come.
Last but certainly not least, Parc Komo will also stand to benefit even more from its proximity to an international air hub when Changi Airport’s Terminal 5 opens in the 2030s. Supporting industries and businesses will multiply, and the Changi region will be the choice place to live for frequent flyers and those working in the aviation industry and its supporting functions. Even for those who don’t, they can expect even more leisure amenities in the new Terminal 5.
Easy accessibility and connectivity
Other than a business hub with a ready pool of tenants, the Changi Region offers a range of recreational amenities for residents and visitors alike. They include the rich heritage of Changi Point, nearby golf and country clubs, as well as a plethora of retail and F&B options such as Jewel Changi Airport, which is only about 5-minutes’ drive away.
Residents will enjoy easy and convenient access to the rest of the island as Parc Komo is well-connected to major expressways and roads including Pan Island Expressway (PIE), Tampines Expressway (TPE) and East Coast Parkway (ECP),
Additionally, Parc Komo is also located near the upcoming Loyang MRT Station along the Cross Island Line (CRL), which is slated for a 2029 completion. The MRT station will connect residents to Changi Airfreight Centre (Aviation Park MRT) as well as the East West Line, the North East Line, and the North South Line, putting everywhere in Singapore within reach by train. With these amenities in place, residents at Parc Komo will enjoy unrivalled access and convenience to the rest of the island, while luxuriating in the intimacy of the quaint and rustic beachside locale within the Changi enclave.
