GuocoLand to launch luxury condominium Martin Modern
Property developer GuocoLand is targeting to launch its latest luxury residential condominium project, Martin Modern, in the second half of 2017.
The 450-unit property will be located in District 9 at the corner of Martin Place and River Valley Close, within the neighbourhood of Robertson Quay.
Each unit will come with a view of the gardens, the city, or the Singapore River.
In a Monday press release, GuocoLand says that over 80% of the condominium’s land area will be turned into “a unique botanic garden and an arboretum of native trees and vegetation”, with over 200 species of plants and over 50 species of trees and palms.
15 different spaces with various concepts will be spread over three levels, as the site has a 10-metre upward slop from one end to the other.
GuocoLand acquired the Martin Modern site at $595.1 million in July 2016 through a government land sales tender, and is expected to announce the project pricing at the property’s official launch.
“In land-scarce Singapore, space in a prime location is the ultimate luxury. It is extremely rare to find a large lush site in prime District 9, within the posh Robertson Quay neighbourhood. This place gives us the opportunity to create our luxury resort-home concept, as seen in Goodwood Residence and Leedon Residence,” says Cheng Hsing Yao, group managing director of GuocoLand Singapore.
“For Martin Modern, we studied the neighbourhood, terrain, views and the spirit of the place. We also looked at the market and knew it is timely to introduce a more progressive form of luxury,” he adds.
Yip Yuen Hong from ipli Architects is the appointed master architect for Martin Modern while ADDP Architects will take on the role of the project architect. The landscape work will be undertaken by ICN Design International.
