Property developer MCC Land has decided to rename an upcoming condominium and mall in Potong Pasir to prevent a mix-up with the nearby St Andrew’s School, reported Channel NewsAsia.

The developer originally planned to call the condominium and mall as The Andrew Residences and The Andrew Village respectively.

However, the names are similar to the educational institution’s name, as well as St Andrew’s Village, the official compound of all three St Andrew’s schools. Completed in 2006, the compound houses a kindergarten, three church buildings and the Anglican Diocesan Office.

Given the similar name and proximity of these properties, this could confuse the public, said several members of the school’s alumni in a letter addressed to MCC Land.

As such, the developer submitted new names to the government and the approval is expected to come as early as today. Sales for the project are expected to start by end-2015, with completion set for 2019.
