Sol Acres’ developer, MCL Land, has made sure to accommodate a wide range of residents and their various needs. This includes singles, who can take advantage of its one-bedroom units, which are usually quite rare in EC developments.

Needless to say, this residential project with over 1,300 housing units also comes with plenty of facilities at its residents’ disposal: three clubhouses (including a function hall, gourmet chef terrace and children’s party room), four barbecue pavilions, two tennis courts, two media rooms, multiple table tennis pavilions and much more await those who choose Sol Acres.

Situated near Keat Hong LRT station and not far from Choa Chu Kang MRT, shopping malls such as Hillion and Junction 10, and schools like Choa Chu Kang Primary School and Bukit Panjang Government High School, Sol Acres is the ideal home for the family.

Average Selling Price (psf): $1,371

Located amid the lush hilly greenery of District 23, Hillview Peak is a 512-unit condo development tucked away within the Bukit Gombak and Bukit Batok estates.

Sitting on a site of nearly 137,000 sq ft, the project features one- to four-bedroom units among a wide array of amenities and facilities.

Hillview Peak is a development that straddles the seemingly opposite realities of both isolation and connectivity: it is situated near malls (West Mall, Bukit Timah Shopping Centre), schools (Chestnut Drive Secondary School, Pei Hwa Presbyterian School), supermarkets, and major expressways (the BKE and AYE), while at the same time luxuriating amid the plentiful greenery and sprawling nature of the Bukit Timah area.

The area has no shortage of good food either, with a variety of stores on the same stretch as The Rail Mall and the famous Al-Azhar prata shops in the vicinity. Stores and eateries such as Cold Storage, Subway, The Straits Wine Company, Blooie’s Roadhouse, Galbiati Gourmet Deli, The Brilliant Cut and Country Haven can all be found here.

In keeping with its nature-based theme, Hillview Peak boasts curvilinear lines and planes across its four towers, with the height and orientation of each tower carefully oriented to accommodate unobstructed views of its surroundings, and an environmental deck for maximum relaxation.

The project boasts a three-dimensional matrix of homes with private terraces and common gardens, offering stunning views of the skyline. Its unique feature comprises two stepping towers linked by three sky gardens which offer spaces for recreational and leisure activities.

Delightfully unusual features aside, Sky Habitat has one- to four-bedroom units, as well as penthouses. Furthermore, a number of the two-, three- and four-bedroom units come with patios and terraces, offering residents even more space to relax and unwind.

Conveniently located near the CTE and Bishan MRT station, Sky Habitat is at once tucked away and easily accessible, with the city centre just a short train ride or car journey away. In addition, the presence of established schools, retail malls, parks and eateries in the vicinity make this project well worth it.
