Bijou is an integrated development at Jalan Mat Jambol in Pasir Panjang. It is a five-storey building featuring 120 residential units and 15 commercial spaces, including a grocery store operated and managed by developer Far East.
Bijou is just across the road from Pasir Panjang MRT station, to which it is currently connected by a sheltered overhead bridge.
Though situated in a relatively quiet enclave, Bijou borders the very busy Pasir Panjang Road, with the West Coast Highway overhead. The development is close to numerous restaurants on either side of the road, including 24-hour minimarts, all of which are within walking distance.
However, Bijou is expected to have its own shops and grocery stores which will inject a dose of modernity in Jalan Mat Jambol while providing its residents, as well as landed house owners in the immediate vicinity, with more amenities within a shorter distance.
Several buses that service both sides and connect Bijou to places like Mapletree Business Park, VivoCity (four train stops down), Jurong, Clementi and even Bedok, make Bijou well-connected and conveniently located.

The sky garage parks two cars, typically collectors’ cars which are visible en route to the apartment via a glass elevator. The cars sit in a display setting within the spacious living room, like priceless museum pieces.
Orchard Road is a short train ride or 10-minute walk away, so residents at Reignwood Hamilton Scotts will not have to deal with traffic by driving along Singapore’s perennial shopping belt.
