Inspired by the Italians’ community-spirited way of life and the natural beauty of Tuscany, Le Quest promises to be a mixed-use development that creates la dolce vita for residents; a green lifestyle residence with retail outlets, restaurants, childcare facilities and lifestyle services.
A suburbanites’ retreat in Singapore’s well-developed and densely populated Bukit Batok West region, Le Quest is the real estate vision of renowned Singapore-listed developer Qingjian Realty. The property heavyweight is aiming high, on a quest to introduce a new lifestyle philosophy that will “revitalize the way you live” and a project “where every need is at your doorstep”.
As a result, the unique Le Quest development has garnered attention, with Qingjian earning a Best Mixed Use Development accolade at the 8th annual PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Singapore) in October 2018. Le Quest reshapes the possibilities of city life, urging residents to “live”, “shop”, “dine” and “play” within a complex of uptown amenities in a suburban setting within easy reach of the new CBD, thus impressing the judging panel.
“Le Quest comprises a residential condo with the convenience of a commercial retail mall, supermarket, food court and childcare centre below. The planning and architecture are rigorously resolved for each function and cohesive as a whole. Combined with smart technology, Le Quest affords residents the luxury of condo living with amenities with the convenience of shared services at the press of a button,” said Benedict Lim, one of this year’s judges and partner at EY and ASEAN real estate M&A leader, an investment management and professional real estate expert in Singapore.
With input from ADDP Architects, Ong & Ong for interior design and Ecoplan Asia for the spectacular landscaping, Le Quest is on target for completion in late 2021. The development boasts five blocks of 12 storeys, comprising 516 residential units from studios to four-bedroom condos. It also has 100 commercial outlets made up of 49 shop units with street-facing facades, 49 restaurants, a supermarket and a food court.
The landscaping at Le Quest is set to be a green oasis reawakening the senses with a Zen garden, fitness corner, picnic ground, 50-metre lap pool and aqua lounge, social room and recreation club, deck, lawn and outdoor dining. Meanwhile, residents can rediscover shared experiences with a family pool and pavilion, dining pavilion, sky BBQ and bubble water jets.
Creating a zest for life and re-energising residents is a tennis court as well as kids’ pool, pavilion and playground, BBQ pavilion and retreat space. Reinvigorating residents’ lifestyles is a putting green, gym, spa lobby and therapy pool. Along with these social spaces, Le Quest is creating tranquil retreat hideaways for alone-time with an herb garden, garden trail and maze garden.
Lifestyle services combined with smart-living technology, plus adherence to sustainable building, energy efficiency and universal design principles, create a seamless residential experience for the modern age. Thoughtfully designed to reflect the glamorous lifestyle aesthetic of Europe, Le Quest embraces a dynamic expression of contemporary resort-style living.
