Anticipate the impeccable quality the developers can bring to Penrose Condominium


Come home to a fantastical forest-themed Penrose Condominium

What caught our attention was its forest themed inspired architecture and decor that will revitalize your soul and body whenever you come home to Penrose.

As a joint venture development by Hong Leong Group and City Developments Limited, excitement for this luxury project is definitely reasonable given their stellar past track record.

Both developers have a long-established reputation in the real estate industry. Hong Leong Group has started out since the 1960s and has since become the market leader, launching projects including The St. Regis Hotel and Residences, W Singapore Sentosa Cove and Residences, Quayside Isle and One Shenton.

Hong Leong Group has also bought a majority stake in City Developments Limited, which has since become a listed international property and hotel conglomerate. With that, you can already imagine the impeccable quality that the developers will be bringing to Penrose.

Seamless flow of the 50-meter lap pool and these green spaces will allow you to be immersed in the tranquility of nature.


Penrose Condominium’s Floor Plan

Looking at the floor plan of Penrose, the apartment blocks include a mix of 1-to-4 bedroom, penthouse and even dual-key units.

In a previous video, we had an in-depth analysis of the top dual-key condominium developments in Singapore, but during then, information of Penrose was not released yet.

The 2-bedroom units have a popular “dumbbell-shaped” layout with the rooms at each side of the living area. 

 

The forest-inspired estate includes 3 different luxurious woodland pavilions, of which includes a keen attention to detail and vast nature is realized from the moment of entry.

Seamless flow of the 50-meter lap pool and these green spaces will allow you to be immersed in the tranquility of nature.

Residents can also enjoy hosting dinner parties and alfresco dining amidst the greenery, with BBQ pits available as a bonding activity for families and friends.

Penrose also has a generally much larger unit size as compared to the neighbouring Sims Urban Oasis because they are being hit by the new URA policy that restricts developers from building small shoebox units right outside of the city centre.


Location is top-notch at Penrose

Aljunied MRT is the closest MRT and is located just a 5 minutes walk away from the doorstep of Penrose. On top of that, with its proximity to key expressways PIE, KJE and public transportation networks, it’s very convenient for those who drive.

Aljunied is also fairly close to the CBD, only a 10 minutes drive away from City Hall. Home owners can be rest assured that location is prime, here at Penrose. 

For your shopping and daily groceries needs, a vibrant neighborhood awaits around!

The location that Penrose sits at, also offers much convenience for families with school-going children of all ages. This includes many schools in the vicinity, including:

There is an integrated childcare centre in the development right at the first floor! You will also enjoy sheltered walkways from a bus stop, 1-1 parking lot allocation and a grand entrance drop off.
We will expect that Penrose condominium will  be popular among investors for its recession resilience qualities. Nearby, Parc Esta at Eunos MRT & Park Place Residences at PLQ at Paya Lebar MRT have been super popular since their launch.

The prices for Park Place Residences at PLQ integrated developments are even hitting $2,281 per square foot for a studio unit!


A hot favourite among property investors

Penrose Condominium is very popular among investors for its recession resilience qualities. Other than being backed by reputable developers, the surrounding neighbourhoods have very promising future growth in URA’s Master Plan.

As we all know, location is king when it comes to property, and with the Aljunied region so close to the central business district (CBD) the demand for both residents and tenants will be aplenty and moreover, the Singapore CBD is not going to shift anywhere else so soon.

Kallang Riverside Park will even include beachside lagoons and recreational water sports fun such as boating or canoeing.

Another transformation is happening at the other end of Aljunied, with Kallang Riverside poised to become a waterfront lifestyle destination.

This 64-hectare entertainment precinct will be presenting thousands of new homes, hotel rooms and around 400,000 sqm of office, retail and entertainment facilities.

Kallang Riverside Park will even include beachside lagoons and recreational water sports fun such as boating or canoeing.
