Three giant real estate developers have teamed up to redevelop former Liang Court into a new mixed-use development – the Canninghill Square. Located on a prime strategic area, the River Valley Road, this new high-end project will offer its future tenants and owners a view like no other! The serene Singapore river, the city center skyline, a direct access to Clarke Quay, and a world-class convenience within. Two towers catering both residential and commercial uses, along with a hotel and a serviced residence will soon rise in the proposed location occupying a total gross floor area of 100,263 square metres (sq m).
The project, estimated to include 700 units, 475 hotel rooms, and 192 serviced apartments is a team-effort vision of the three giants namely: City Developments Limited (CDL), a leading global real estate company with a network spanning 106 locations in 29 countries and regions; CapitaLand Limited (CapitaLand), one of Asia’s largest diversified real estate groups; and Ascott Residence Trust (Ascott Reit), the largest hospitality trust in Asia Pacific.
Once approved by the Authority, the proposed project will set afire once again the buzz and fun of the river side, including Clarke Quay. This integrated development is aligned with the Master Development Plan 2019 which aims to create spaces with mixed uses and will be a safe space for locals and tourists alike who will choose to make Singapore their home. More amenities will be constructed around the project to connect the future owners and tenants to the heart of Singapore – the District 9.
So what is in District 9? How will the location benefit the future owners? The proposed location is ideal for those who are working in the Central Business District (CBD) as it is just a walking distance away. Not just that. Shops, malls, food establishments and other commercial areas are within the reach from this location. Some of the shopping stores are The Riverside Point, a mall located in Singapore Canninghill Square; UE Square Mall, although smaller than Riverside Point but this structure is considered as a protected historical site by the National Historic Board; and the Clarke Quay Central, home to several retail stores, shopping and entertainment establishments.
It is not just bonus point for the corporate workers and shopaholics! Gastronomic cravings will also be fulfilled as the area is near a pool of food establishments which offer a variety of foreign and local cuisines. One can enjoy a seafood platter while on a river cruise in Tongkang River Dining, a unique pump boat restaurant which sails across the river, a savory lobster at Ramen Keisuke Lobster King which combines French and Asian cuisine, or just simply a relaxed night feasting over the yummy street foods lined up in the streets of the CBD.
One won’t experience Singapore fully without the pulsating energy of the city’s night life. Canninghill Square is not just near the malls and food establishments but also to the top entertainment hotspots like Get Juiced, Chupito’s Shots Bar, Crazy Elephant and Zouk & Attica to name a few. It will bring anyone to the local live beats of the city, a diverse mix of clubs from the exclusive to the cheap and cheerful. If one wants to make some friends, expand network or just simply unwind, these bars offer to quench one’s thirst from cheap to labeled liquors, cocktails and a variety of booze while being serenaded by the calming view of the river – a contrast of lively and calm resonating in every nook and cranny!
The future site of Canninghill is not just for the young professionals, millennials and tourists who are more into the lively scene. This is also an ideal place to live in for families. The area is accessible to several institutions like schools. Cost and time of travel will be cut off, children will have the opportunity to walk and therefore enhance their health, and with the presence of several pocket parks and open spaces, surely this will encourage families to move in. Some of the schools near the location are River Valley Primary School, Singapore Management University, School of The Arts (SOTA), Stamford Primary School, Nexus International School, and Finnish Supplementary School to name a few. For leisure and quality time, several parks and open spaces are also nearby like the Amped Trampoline Park where more or less fifty trampolines are installed to serve as workout space and playground and the Polliwogs where parents could spend quality time with their kids through entertaining games and interactive activities.
You won’t run out of reasons why Canninghill Square is the place to be. From the presence of world-class amenities, to the excellent interconnectivity, access to the city core, and a myriad of activities to be done, it will surely steal and heal your heart all at once. In Canninghill Square, you will find HOME.
