This condominium is connected to several expressways: Central Expressway (CTE), Tampines Expressway (TPE), Seletar Expressway (SLE) and the future North-South Expressway (NSE). It would take you about 23 minutes to drive to the Central Business District (CBD) and 20 minutes to Orchard Road.

The newly opened Canberra Plaza, also known as the “New Generation Neighbourhood Centre,” is a 12-minute walk away. You can find amenities such as supermarkets, food courts, enrichment centres, gardens, and a water playground too!
