The stretch of Bukit Timah Road from Newton MRT to King Albert Park MRT is becoming more and more sought-after, as the Downtown Line is expected to continue boosting property prices in this highly-prized neighbourhood that is already populated with good schools. Currently, Botanic Gardens MRT station is an interchange station with Circle Line, while Newton MRT station is an interchange station with North-South Line. By 2021, Stevens MRT will become an interchange station with the upcoming Thomson-East Coast Line, thus further boosting connectivity in this stretch of Bukit Timah Road.
Under the URA Master Plan 2019, in addition to the development of the Rail Corridor, Bukit Timah will have a new one-stop integrated facility with a Community Club, redeveloped market & hawker centre at the doorstep of Beauty World MRT station. It will also feature a range of new amenities such as an indoor sports hall and community library to enhance liveability.
Both JUNIPER HILL and SLOANE RESIDENCES sit squarely – and close to each other – at the heart of this prime locality.
JUNIPER HILL — occupying the site of former Crystal Tower along Ewe Boon Road, this is an upcoming freehold residential development by Allgreen Properties. Within 1 km of SCGS and ACS Primary schools, and minutes walk to the nearby Stevens MRT interchange station of the Downtown and the upcoming Thomson-East Coast Line. The landscaping is inspired by Juniper trees which are planted all around the development.
This project will be sought after, not just for its location but also for its attention to detail in terms of architecture and landscaping that seeks to maximise the potential of the elevated land which Juniper Hill sits on. Click here for the full review and LAUNCH WEBSITE.
SLOANE RESIDENCES — occupying the site of the former Sloane Court hotel along Balmoral Road, this is an upcoming freehold residential development by award-winning builder Tiong Seng Group and Ocean Sky. Within 1 km of SCGS and ACS Primary schools, and minutes walk to the nearby Newton MRT station. Very high ceiling for all unit types.
With a distinctive façade, the units are housed in two distinct architectural typologies conceptualized as the Sky Scraper (Tower Block) and Ground Scraper (Podium Block). Units within each of these two typologies have their separate and distinct characters – the Sky Scraper (with its tall clean glass façade) vs the Ground Scraper (with its picturesque gardens).
It may also be useful to compare JUNIPER HILL and SLOANE RESIDENCES with other new launches in this same prime locality:
FOURTH AVENUE RESIDENCES — Direct covered access to the Sixth Avenue MRT Station, which is right at its doorstep and surrounded by prestigious schools and Sixth Avenue eateries. Click here for the full review and launch website.
MAYFAIR GARDENS / MAYFAIR MODERN — The land parcel where these 2 projects sit on is bounded by Rifle Range Road and situated off the Dunearn Road and Bukit Timah Road. 5 mins walk to King Albert Park MRT, and 1km to MGS and Pei Hwa Presbyterian Pri school.
