Chinese developer Qingjian Realty’s latest development JadeScape offers luxurious comfort, thoughtful design, extensive facilities, a host of smart features, and most importantly, a prime location.
It’s a well-known fact that prices of homes in Bishan – both HDB flats and private housing – are among one of the highest in Singapore. When it comes to the former, the flats in Bishan have made headlines multiple times for its record-breaking prices – in 2014, an executive flat was sold for a whopping $1.05 million, and more recently in 2017, a Design, Build and Sell Scheme (DBSS) flat at Qingjian Realty’s Natura Loft in Bishan was transacted at a cool $1.18 million.
The private properties in Bishan, which comes under District 20, too, are equally well sought after. According to figures from the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), the prices of 99-year leasehold condos in D20 have risen by close to 40 percent over the last eight years.
And it’s easy to see why homes in Bishan are a hot favourite among investors and home buyers despite consistently high prices – the area boasts an impressive list of qualities including its central location, a slew of dining options and proximity to shopping malls and good schools.
For those looking to purchase a property within the Bishan area, they will be pleased to know that JadeScape, developed by renowned developer Qingjian Realty and designed by award-winning architect Paul Noritake Tange, will soon come onto the market.
With more than 10 years of experience in developing properties in Singapore, Qingjian Realty boasts an impressive portfolio of almost sold out projects including Natura Loft (2008), Nin Residence at Potong Pasir (2010), the RiverParc Residence at Punggol (2011), the Riversound Residence (2012), and River Isles at Punggol.
Strategically located at Shunfu Road, residents can enjoy utmost convenience as the development is within proximity to several major expressways including the Central Expressway (CTE), the Pan Island Expressway (PIE) and the future North-South Corridor, which makes travelling to other parts of the island a breeze. For those who rely on public transportation, Marymount MRT station along the Circle Line is situated just a mere three-minute walk away.
Other upcoming transportation developments that may catalyse prices in this area would be the Upper Thomson MRT station (along the Thomson-East Coast Line), which is slated to be open in 2020, as well as the Cross-Island Line, which provides a faster commute between the east and the west, from Changi to Jurong.
Close to nature
While JadeScape is set within a central location with a slew of modern amenities, residents will be pleased to know that they can still enjoy elements of nature – the development is just a short five-minute drive to MacRitchie Reservoir and is just short distance away from Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park. Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park alone (divided into Bishan Park 1 and Bishan Park 2) stretches 2.8km and spans Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1 and the town’s canal. Ponds, bridges, footpaths and even a spa can be found here, making it ideal for fishing, biking and running.
JadeScape will also boast a 50m Skyline Pool.
Voluminous layouts and smart home features
There is plenty to like about JadeScape, comprising a good mix of one- to five-bedroom types and penthouses, all boasting voluminous and generous layouts. Apart from stylish and modern interiors, the units are all designed to provide a smart lifestyle for all occupants. A pioneer in developing homes that provide smart living solutions, Qingjian Realty has incorporated all the units with plenty of smart features complemented by hiLife, a mobile app that allows you to control the air conditioning, smart curtains and lightings with your mobile device – even when you are not in Singapore.
For recreational pursuits, the development offers over 100 facilities on-site to meet the varied needs of residents.
Home to top schools
For families with school-going children, there are several reputable schools that are situated just a stone’s throw away, such as Kuo Chuan Presbyterian Primary School, Ai Tong Primary School, Catholic High School, Raffles Institution, Raffles Girls’ School and Eunoia Junior College.
For those seeking leisure and entertainment options, or simply looking for great places to shop, they can head towards Junction 8 and Toa Payoh Hub, which are a short drive away. Junction 8 offers a host of retail shops, restaurants and even a cinema, making it the perfect one-stop dining, shopping and entertainment destination for residents. Other malls that are a short walk away from the development include Thomson Plaza and Thomson V One.
Good investment potential
Whether purchasing for investment or residential living, securing a unit at JadeScape will make an excellent choice, as its location within the Bishan-Thomson area assures owners that the property can weather the ups and downs of the property market.
Smart home features, state of-the-art facilities, convenient amenities, luxurious comfort, coupled with the development’s central location makes JadeScape an ideal choice for both new homeowners and discerning investors.
