The iconic Tembusu tree is well-known for its beautiful foliage and the fact that it is the oldest living thing in Singapore. The evergreen tree has stood for 150 years, and is a popular attraction in the Singapore Botanic Gardens. It was even featured on the five dollar note. But the Tembusu tree is not just a symbol of the past; it also stands for the future. This is why the new residential development at tembusu grand, inspired by this evergreen, seeks to be an embodiment of its legacy.
The project is a collaboration between City Developments Limited (CDL) and the Tembusu Group. The developers are looking to create a neighbourhood of 620 private condo units and 6 commercial shophouses. The residential condos will offer different floor plans with 2 to 5 bedrooms and are designed with the needs of families in mind. The commercial shops will cater to the needs of locals and serve as a complement to the community.
It is located in the Kallang Planning Area and is within walking distance to Farrer Park MRT station. The site is also accessible by major roads such as Race Course Road, Bukit Timah Road, and the Central Expressway. The development will feature a mix of residential, retail, and office spaces, as well as landscaped terraces, sky decks, and a central garden. The design is expected to be environmentally conscious and will incorporate renewable energy sources, water-efficient systems, and green building features.
With its modern and innovative architecture, the project will offer a contemporary lifestyle with a sense of place. The development will have a range of amenities, from vibrant pools to relaxing lounges, to ensure that every resident has a place to call home. The development will be surrounded by nature, as well as a variety of schools and hospitals.
The development will also feature a community club, a polyclinic, and a sports centre. It will also feature walking paths along the roads, in line with the Car Free Town concept. It will be one of the first smartly built sustainable communities in Singapore, using technologies like solar-powered cooling towers, vacuum waste disposal, electric vehicles, underground highways, and urban agriculture.
Lastly, the community will benefit from the redevelopment of the neighbouring Ang Mo Kio Hub. The hub will be transformed into a new cultural, educational, and retail destination, featuring a new hawker centre, library, community club, and more.
The development is expected to be completed by 2024. It will be a place where you can find the perfect balance between work and play, so that you can live a life full of happiness both inside and outside your home. With thoughtful design and exceptional craftsmanship, the project promises to be a place of lasting value for generations to come.
