Launch of Highline Residences

Keppel Land has launched its latest residential project in Tiong Bahru. The popular neighbourhood has seen few private developments, with the last major project being in 2006

Keppel Land has received positive response for the launch of its latest residential development, Highline Residences, in the heritage estate of Tiong Bahru on 30 April 2016.

The prime development comprises a total of 500 homes ranging from one- to four-bedroom units, dual key apartments as well as penthouses, spread across three residential towers and four low-rise blocks. Approximately 75% of the 270 launched units have been sold to date.

Mr Albert Foo, GM of Marketing at Keppel Land, said, “Highline Residences is another one of Keppel Land’s signature developments, following other iconic projects such as Reflections at Keppel Bay and Marina Bay Suites.

“Highline Residences presents an invaluable opportunity for homebuyers seeking a quality private development in the heritage estate of Tiong Bahru. Based on our survey, buyers are attracted by Tiong Bahru’s central location and heritage charm, as well as the thoughtful designs of the development and quality finishes provided. The lifestyle offerings, including privileged membership and personalised concierge services, have also proved to be a draw.

“We believe that Highline Residences’ modern design will add to the surrounding Art Deco-style architecture, and we look forward to being part of this vibrant Tiong Bahru community.”

Tiong Bahru has seen a rejuvenation in recent years, characterised by a wave of new-age eateries and eclectic lifestyle shops. Ranked the World’s 4th coolest neighbourhood in the world by Vogue1 and one of the 50 most stylish neighbourhoods globally alongside Harajuku in Tokyo, Soho in New York City and Le Marais in Paris2 , the Tiong Bahru precinct is certainly a coveted address in the city fringe.

Highline Residences is just a short stroll away from Tiong Bahru MRT station and the upcoming Havelock MRT Station along the Thomson Line. It is also located close to the Orchard Road shopping belt, the central business district and the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School campus.

Highline Residences in Tiong Bahru also boasts a wide range of shopping, dining and leisure amenities. Tiong Bahru Plaza, Tiong Bahru Food Centre, Tiong Bahru Conservation Area and Great World City are all a stone’s throw away. Families with school-going children will also appreciate the site’s close proximity to Crescent Girls’ School, zhangde Primary School and Gan Eng Seng Secondary School.

Designed by award-winning architect Mok Wei Wei of W Architects, Highline Residences features an elevated green ridge on level five which spans an impressive 180 metres with a wide range of recreational and communal facilities.

This was inspired by New York City’s High Line, a public park built on a historic elevated rail line.

All apartments are elegantly furnished with quality finishings and fittings from Hansgrohe to Bosch, while high ceilings of 3.2m clear height add to the expansive feel of the living space.

When completed in 2018, residents can entertain at home in spacious comfort at one of the two rooftop function rooms with panoramic views of the city as a backdrop.

Highline Residences also features a rooftop communal garden facility to encourage urban farming and healthy lifestyles. Residents can enjoy growing their own harvest of herbs, spices and fruits.

Future residents at Highline Residences can also look forward to privileged membership and personalised concierge services. These include limousine and housekeeping services, as well as complimentary golfing at the award-winning Ria Bintan Golf Club in Indonesia and privileged access to Keppel Land’s golf courses in China.
