Mature Neighbourhood Revitalised with Bedok Residences
First integrated development in the East brings buzz to Bedok Central
by Capitaland Insider | Jan 2012
Rising atop Singapore’s mature Bedok neighbourhood will be a spanking new shopping mall and a sleek private condominium, Bedok Residences. The new kid on the block is creating quite a stir not just because a private condominium in the area has long been anticipated; this residential development is also part of the first integrated development in Bedok.
“Centrally located in one of the most popular mature estates in Singapore, Bedok Residences will offer its residents direct and seamless access to the Bedok transport hub (MRT and bus interchange), as well as easy access to the CBD via expressways. Apart from close proximity to the famous Bedok hawker centre, the development will be conveniently integrated with the biggest shopping mall in Bedok, something which is currently lacking in the

neighbourhood. With its unique and attractive attributes, we believe Bedok Residences will greatly enhance the lifestyles of people living in the eastern part of Singapore,” said Mr Wong Heang Fine, CEO of CapitaLand Residential Singapore.
Launched in November 2011, Bedok Residences comprises 583 residential units spread across eight 15-storey blocks. The urban oasis appeals to discerning homeowners with its sleek, vertical lines that contrast with the undulating, gentle sweeping curves of the mall below.
With its attractive attributes, Bedok Residences garnered strong public interest prior to its launch. Within the first hour of the launch, 66 units were snapped up, which means that at least one unit was sold every minute. By 5pm on the first day of launch, more than 350 units of the 450 units released for sale were sold. As at December 2011, over 80 per cent of the 583-unit development was sold.
Live in the Heart of Life
Nestled in an established residential enclave comprising both landed and HDB estates , the central location of Bedok Residences is a big draw. Residents will have seamless access to the Bedok transportation hub consisting of the bus interchange and the MRT Orchard Road
and all the dining possibilities in the East - Siglap, Katong, East Coast Lagoon and Changi - are just an easy MRT, bus or taxi ride away. Heading to the city or other parts of the island by car is also a breeze with quick connectivity to major expressways.
A short walk away are a myriad of amenities such as the famous Bedok food centre, Bedok Public Library, Bedok stadium, supermarkets and retail shops. There are also choice educational institutes in the area including Fengshan Primary School, Red Swastika School and Temasek Junior College. For nature lovers and families, the nearby recreational parks at East Coast and Bedok Reservoir provide the perfect spots for you to work out or unwind with your family on the weekends.

Bedok Residences is conveniently integrated with the biggest shopping mall in Bedok, something which is currently lacking in the neighbourhood. Now, shopping for a new outfit, doing your groceries, hunting for the latest gadgets and tech toys, buying a gift or dining out at cafes and restaurants – all the comforts and conveniences of modern living will literally be at your doorsteps! Plans are also underway to revitalise and improve the existing facilities at the Bedok Town Centre. These include a new hawker centre, town plaza, enhanced walkways, gateways, a state-of-the-art swimming and sports complex – adding to the dining, shopping and recreational choices in the neighbourhood.
Indulge in the Best of Designs
In between the apartment blocks of Bedok Residences are private sky gardens that are
Bedok Residences’ central location provides excellent access to major expressways, buses and MRT among other amenities
accessed exclusively from the owners' units. These
sky gardens cleverly weave in nature by creating pockets of green space and provide unique views as one moves along the development.
The units in Bedok Residences offer versatile living spaces that afford privacy and maximum use of space. A variety of unit types – from one- to four-bedroom types and penthouses offering 185 different layouts – allows you to choose a home that meets your family’s needs. All the units have a North-South orientation, allowing in natural light without the full glare of the sun. The roofs of the penthouse units also open up to a spacious terrace that commands a prominent view of Bedok estate.
With a variety of recreational facilities, there’s something for everyone in the family
Architectural elegance aside, the property boasts an extensively landscaped deck that covers over 150,000 square feet of recreational facilities. Dive into the 50-metre infinity-edged lap pool for your daily workout or ease away the stress of the day soaking in the terrace spa pods or sprawled on the sun beds. There is a children’s pool and a kinetic fish pond to occupy the young ones. Tennis courts, outdoor exercise, senior fitness stations and a gym ensure young and old can keep healthy indoors and outdoors. And come weekends, residents can entertain at BBQ pits set in a maze of lush greenery or in the club house function room. Enjoy quiet moments of meditation or have tête-à-tête at The Ritmo Pavilions under the stars or take a stroll down the Jetty Walk where Nature envelops you in her embrace. Marvel at the unique Vertical Garden and sculpture that adorn the place.
Temporary Occupation Permit for Bedok Residences is expected to be obtained in 2015. Yet many are already eagerly anticipating the new buzz and lifestyle options that Bedok Residences will bring.
