Condo, Mixed Development
The west community of Singapore is once again getting ready to launch a new condominium. This new project is known as the Twin Vew and will be conveniently located along Sungei Pandan to give residents more spacious and comfortable living spaces. Residents will have quick and easy access to this new development through the West Coast Highway and Ayer Rajah Expressway and not forgetting the Jurong Commercial District that is only less than 5 min drive.
This review has been designed to give an accurate overview of this new condo. Like the residents of this area, we hold high expectations for the delivery of the Twin Vew project. While it is still under development, we are assured the Twin Vew will provide a luxurious homes for the residents of Singapore, more specifically the West Coast Vale.
A little background about Twin Vew
The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) has closed tenders for this development and is excited to announce China Construction (South Pacific) Development as the winner for this public tender. Bringing forward the highest bid of 291.99 million they have become the official developers of the Twin Vew project.
China Construction was followed by MCC Land (Singapore) with a tender of 289.9 million. Other companies that placed a bid on this exciting establishment include Allgreen Properties, Sim Lian Land, Far East Civil Engineering and Sekisui House. Residents can expect a large range of amenities and features located within this new establishment.
Consequently, as described on the behalf of the Government of the Republic of Singapore, Twin Vew will be located at West Coast Vale with a site area of 16,378.3 meters squared. The tenure period is 99 years and will be composed with a gross floor area of 45,860 meters squared and maximum building height of 140 m AMSL.
The future residents of Twin Vew will have easy access to the Southern Ridges Loop which is also linked to the popular Bukit Batok Nature Park and Pandan Reservoir. Nearby amenities include Westgate, Jem and Big Box located at the Jurong Lake District. The selected location for the Twin Vew will be very beneficial to current and future occupants.
Furthermore, residents will be able to spend quality time with their loved ones as this future development unfolds. It will also be perfect for families with children. Nearby schools are of good quality and ensure a decent education for all students. Nearby schools include:
As this area continues to expand, families will have various options regarding schools, entertainment, dining options, but more importantly, living units. We would like to bring attention to Parc Riviera, a nearby condo in West Coast Vale that is also being developed with a completion date in 2020.
As of early October 2017, they have 279 active listings available for sale. The rates begin at S$500,000 – S$616,000 for a one-bedroom unit and go up to S$1.119M – S$1.591M for a four-bedroom unit. With this development and the Twin Vew condo, the residents of Singapore can expect great change and more comfortable living spaces. Twin Vew prices have not been set, but we can assume they will be similar to those of the Parc Riviera.
The ultimate goal of the government masterplan is to create a safer, more comfortable city for the residents of Singapore. The upcoming development of Twin Vew will have a positive impact for Singapore as it takes place in the west area, ultimately the industrial heart of Singapore.
With the government masterplan, residents can expect several positive changes. For instance, the establishment of the High-Speed Railway (HSR) will take place to give residents a connection between Singapore and Johor. This transit system will also provide access to Malaysia and will be perfect for Malaysians who work in Singapore.
In addition, the URA has long-term plans to improve the quality of life for Singaporeans. In the next few years, this city will see numerous changes that will be beneficial to occupants. There will also be additional schools, hospitals, restaurants and shopping centres built to give residents a large array of options. Each of these innovative developments will lead to more job opportunities closer to home, with a reliable transport system for every resident in Singapore.
1. Singapore-KL High Speed Rail (HSR)
Want to get to Kuala Lumpur — which is 350km away — in 90 minutes?
The Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) terminus will be located at the current site of Jurong Country Club in Jurong East. The HSR comprises of 8 stations inclusive of Singapore having Jurong East as its station while Malaysia having Bandar Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, as its station. The high speed railway would cut down travelling time between Singapore and Malaysia to 90 minutes. The project is expected to be completed by 2026 and would potentially increase the demand for houses in the West region of Singapore. Consultants expect the new terminus to spur property prices and stimulate retail and commercial activity in the vicinity.
2. Jurong Region Line (JRL) & Cross Island Line (CRL)
With the Jurong Region Line (JRL) and Cross Island Line (CRL) in the near future, property prices in Jurong are expected to appreciate over the decade. The Jurong Lake District’s (JLD) future connectivity via the HSR and new MRT lines will give it an “unparalleled advantage over the other regional centres in attracting businesses to set up operations in the district”.
The 20km Jurong Region Line (JRL) will connect to main activity nodes in Jurong West, such as NTU, the Jurong Industrial estate, including Jurong Island and the future Jurong Gateway.
The JRL will serve residents of Choa Chu Kang, Boon Lay and future Tengah area, thus reducing travelling time for NTU students, workers of CleanTech and Jurong Industrial Estate.
The Cross Island Line (CRL) will provide a faster commute between the east and the west, from Changi to Jurong. Besides relieving the load on several of the existing MRT lines, the CRL will also provide commuters with many more travel routes to get to their destinations, bring about greater comfort to commuters and shorten journey times.
3. Future Growth: The Marina Bay / Greater Sourthern Waterfront
A huge development called the Greater Southern Waterfront is to be built on the 1,000 ha (2.5 times the size of Marina Bay) on the south coastline, from Shenton Way to Pasir Panjang. The Greater Southern Waterfront, a new place to live work play, connects green and open spaces and even a 30km of uninterrupted waterfront for cycling or walking. The possibilities of this redevelopment are immense.
4. Good rental potential from International Business Park, one-north, Biopolis, Fusionopolis
With strong presence of international business parks and wide range of research & developments hubs such as one-north, Biopolis and Fusionopolis, all these contributed to a high employment of foreign professionals. This leads to an increase in demand for housing and thus potential housing price appreciation and increase in rental yields.
