Boutique development Baywind Residences joins the exciting assemblage of developments in the East Coast of District 15, 95 Lorong N Telok Kurau. The 5-storey freehold development is developed by Baywind Properties, a conglomerate of construction group Lim Wen Heng (LWH) Holdings and mainboard-listed ABR Holdings.
Showflats for the spacious units have already commenced on May 14 2022, with buyers quickly laying down their reservations for seven out of 24 units that were up for grabs. The smaller unit density promises residents peace and solace within a vibrant neighbourhood while still placing them within reach of all the facilities they may need.
The new homeowners are expected to collect their keys in 2025, when the 5-storey development is expected to TOP.
The East Coast lifestyle: Why is District 15 so popular?
Situated in the East Coast area, District 15 has traditionally experienced high demand thanks to its proximity to East Coast Park, Changi Airport, and a selection of well established schools. Its proximity to beaches, nearby parks and common amenities lets residents truly experience the best of both city living and urban getaways.
Accessibility and convenience has also made it a choice location for modern Singaporean families, as evident from the fact that all seven takers of Baywind Residences have been local buyers thus far. These factors help buoy the value of properties in the area and bodes well for the condo’s long-term investment potential.

Transportation options at Baywind Residences
Future homeowners of Baywind Residences will immediately feel the difference in convenience and accessibility. Proximity to the major expressways of the East Coast Parkway (ECP) and Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) will allow office workers to drive into the heart of CBD within just 10 minutes.
For public transportation, residents will be heartened to know that their estate lies within 2km of Kembangan MRT and Marine Parade MRT stations which sit on the East-West Line and Thomson-East Coast Line respectively.
According to the development timeline set out by the Land Transport Authority (LTA), the Marine Terrace MRT Station will bring even more transport options to the area come 2024. The station, located just a 5-minute stroll away from Baywind Residences, will bring residents even closer to the Thomson-East Coast line reducing travel time from East to Central.
Cyclists and joggers will also get to enjoy breezy, well-shaded bicycle trips along Siglap Park Connector which will bring them to the slew of basketball courts and exercise corners littered along the track, as well as easy access to Bedok Reservoir Park, Bedok Town Park, Telok Kurau Park and East Coast Park.
Leisure and amenities around Baywind Residences
Like most boutique developments, Baywind Residences will have fewer in-compound facilities. However, the comprehensive list of nearby amenities more than make up for what’s lacking within the residential compound.
Fitness and green spaces
The active and health conscious will have their workout cut out for them from the plethora of gyms and yoga studios including (but not limited to) The Gym Pod at East Coast Park and Yoga Movement East Coast.
Additionally, joggers and cyclists will enjoy miles of unobstructed tracks and fresh air in any of the three surrounding parks of Telok Kurau Lorong N Park, Telok Kurau Park and ECP. The former two can be reached within less than 10-minutes on foot. For ECP, residents will have a direct bus in the form of 135 taking them there in just 19 minutes. From there, residents can enjoy fresh sea breeze along the short stretch from ECP to Siglap Park Connector.
Groceries and shopping
Proximity to two Cold Storage outlets plus an NTUC makes it easy for home cooks and foodies to make a quick trip to the grocery store whenever they miss out a key ingredient for a new recipe.
Being within 2km of the newly furbished Katong i12 shopping mall and Parkway Parade will also give residents plenty of dining out options such as the Magic Chicken Cutlet, Prive, Pu Tien and Ichiban Boshi whenever the resident chef does not feel like putting on their apron.
Culture and food
Another possibly unexpected perk of living in District 15 is the strong Peranakan influence on the area. The unique culture is mainly showcased through the rich architecture of the shophouses and some residential buildings.
Hipster cafes, bars and famous eateries also provide a wide range of atmospheres and menu options to suit every time of day and occasion. Notable favourites include Dunman Food Centre and the 84 Marine Parade Central Market and Food Centre that will definitely leave people coming back for more.
Reputable local and international schooling options
Baywind Residences is a prime location for parents of primary school children with reputable schools such as Ngee Ann, Tao Nan and CHIJ (Katong) primary school. The former two lie within the 1km of radius of the estate, giving students priority during balloting exercises. Also accessible are renowned secondary and tertiary education institutions such as St Patrick’s Secondary School, Victoria Junior College and Temasek Polytechnic.
There are also international schools nearby, such as the Global Indian International School (GIIS) and the Indonesian School Singapore. Both offer a comprehensive curriculum that prepares their students from ages four to 19 to graduate with an International Baccalaureate Diploma.
With amenities catering to the needs of adults and children and a low-density residential environment conducive for at home work, learning, and rest, this East Coast property is no doubt a choice option for families that are looking for convenience, serenity and a good investment.
