The first residential-cum-commercial project to be launched in the thriving one-north area in 14 years has seen nearly 85 per cent or 140 out of 165 units snapped up during its first weekend of sales.
The strong take-up rate is also no surprise, as investors have been eagerly awaiting the start of sales of One-North Eden. More importantly, the good response reflects their confidence in the project and its many strong attributes – with the latter expected to draw steady rental demand and result in excellent potential for future price appreciation.
Located along leafy Slim Barracks Rise, this exclusive mixed-use development comprises 165 units of 1- to 4-bedroom apartments spread across two blocks - one 13 storeys high and the other, 15 - with six restaurants on the 1st storey.
A huge draw for buyers is its vibrant live-work-play-learn setting right where Singapore’s growth industries are.
One Location At Which To Live
Master-planned by Zaha Hadid Architects, one-north is a dynamic 200-hectare precinct that is home to key growth sectors including those in biomedical sciences, info-communications technology and media.
Thanks to its rich environment for research, innovation, collaboration and test-bedding, it is the preferred address of leading companies spread across its nine main development clusters.
These include Mediapolis, biomedical hub Biopolis, info-com technology, media, physical sciences and engineering focused Fusionopolis, the high-tech hub of digital start-ups at LaunchPad @ one-north, and a global centre for leadership training and talent development on Nepal Hill.
One-North Eden investors are also looking to the upcoming Rochester Commons with its Grade A offices, as well as the nearby National University Hospital and Science Park 1 and 2 for a ready pool of potential tenants.
One Place For Everything
One-North Eden is ideally located, with two MRT stations within a 5-minute walk. One-north and Buona Vista MRT stations connect commuters easily with the Circle and East-West Lines, and residents can reach Raffles Place MRT Interchange in seven stops, City Hall MRT Interchange in eight and HarbourFront MRT Interchange in six.
Meanwhile, the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE) is a mere 3-minute drive away, helping residents reach the Central Business District in just 15 minutes. The AYE also leads to the Central Expressway and Marina Coastal Expressway, while the Pan Island Expressway is a 10-minute drive from One-North Eden and connects to the Bukit Timah Expressway.
House hunters are also attracted to the many excellent food and beverage (F&B) options within one-north, as well as the convenience of a huge food court and Cold Storage supermarket at Fusionopolis – just a 5-minute walk away. For shopping, dining, enrichment and recreational needs, residents can conveniently head to Star Vista, Rochester Mall and the nearby upcoming One Holland Village. By year-end, Rochester Commons’ hotel, executive learning centre, F&B and retail businesses can be added to the list.
In addition, Dempsey Hill and VivoCity are just 13 minutes’ drive away, while Orchard Road is a mere 14-minute journey and Sentosa can be reached in 17 minutes.
Another draw is the proximity of educational and research institutes, including the National University of Singapore, INSEAD, Singapore Institute of Technology and ESSEC Business School.
Parents also appreciate the many reputable local and international schools in the vicinity, ranging from Fairfield Methodist Primary and Secondary schools, Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) and Anglo Chinese Junior College, to United World College of South East Asia (Dover Campus), Singapore Polytechnic, NUS High School of Mathematics and Science and Tanglin Trust School.
Situated next to one-north Park and close to the rail corridor, residents have immediate access to dedicated green and open spaces – a truly priceless attribute indeed.
