Developer GuocoLand is launching luxury project Martin Modern on 22 July. The development is the first major condominium launch in the last eight years in the Robertson Quay area. Nearby amenities include the upcoming Great World and Fort Canning MRT stations, as well as the plethora of bars, cafes and restaurants in River Valley.
Martin Modern comprises 450 residential units, with a mix of 2-, 2+study, 3- and 4-bedroom apartments. Unit sizes range from 764 sq ft to 1,798 sq ft. Prices start at SGD 1.8 million.
Designed by four-time President’s Design Award winner, Yip Yuen Hong of ip:li architects, Martin Modern draws inspirations from Good Class Bungalows (GCB) and the Botanic Gardens. 80 percent of the 1.6-hectare site will be dedicated to green and garden spaces, including a “secret garden” at the top of each of the project’s towers.
“We want to redefine the current conventions of luxury living. We draw inspiration from the experiences of living in a GCB and translate that into a modern condominium in an upmarket riverside neighbourhood,” said Mr. Cheng Hsing Yao, Group Managing Director, GuocoLand Singapore.
GuocoLand submitted the top bid of SGD 595.1 million for the site in June 2016. The plot was hotly contested, with 13 developers in total submitting tenders for the land.
Recent projects by the developer include the iconic Tanjong Pagar Centre, currently the tallest building in Singapore, and the 1,024-unit Sims Urban Oasis along Sims Drive.
The sales gallery and show suites for Martin Modern are located at 8 Martin Place and open on 8 July for private previews.
