D’Leedon is an iconic condominium in Singapore’s prominent District 10 designed by Pritzker Architecture Prize winner, Zaha Hadid. It comprises seven 36-storey towers of 1,703 apartments as well as 12 exclusive semi-detached houses. According to Ms Hadid, “The towers only occupy 22% of the site enabling us to create a true urban resort – a fantastic place to relax and enjoy with family and friends”.

This thoughtfully designed condominium made it to the finals for the Urban Habitat Award category and has garnered awards such as Universal Design Mark Platinum, Green Mark GoldPLUS from the Building and Construction Authority of Singapore, as well as the Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters Certification from Public Utilities Board.

D’Leedon not only offers unobstructed views of Singapore’s skyline and large expanses of greenery of Singapore Botanic Gardens and Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, but it’s also a stone’s throw away from Orchard Road. What other impressive attributes does this property have to offer? Let’s find out.

Here’s Why D’Leedon Is an Investment-Worthy Home:

D’Leedon units range from one- to four- bedroom apartments and three- to six-bedroom penthouses. Each apartment is pretty spacious, making living comfortable for anyone, whichever category you belong to: who are bachelors, couples or families with children.

2. Monthly Rental Price

According to Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), D’Leedon’s monthly rental for a three-bedroom apartment can go up to $7,000, while neighbouring condominiums such as Charming Garden and Spanish Garden are priced at (up to) $4,100 and $5,100 respectively for the same number of rooms.

This is good news for future landlords, considering the upcoming developments within close proximity mentioned in URA’s 2019 Draft Master Plan like new commercial, recreational facilities and community amenities alongside improved connectivity involving new corridors and park connectors – enviable elements that makes your property not only attractive but uphold its value well.

3. Perks for Own Stay

D’Leedon offers a myriad of world-class amenities such as two clubhouses with function rooms, reading rooms, games rooms, karaoke rooms and screening rooms, providing residents endless indoor entertainment. There’s even three party houses for those of you who enjoy playing host (bet you’re excited already!). There’s even shops and restaurants too! Picture this – you’ll never be short of food or party supplies.

You’ll always be motivated to maintain an active lifestyle here at D’Leedon. Who wouldn’t want to work out in a scenic gymnasium overlooking an outdoor aqua-gym? Enjoy the outdoors at the 1.7km jogging route which links up six fitness stations and get to know your neighbours over a friendly tennis or basketball match. There’s also a multi -purpose court if you prefer badminton.

Dance is also a form of cardio, why not take up a class at one of the development’s dance studios? If the weather’s too hot, go for a swim instead in either one of the two 50-metre lap pools and chill in the jacuzzi afterwards. Your kids can join in the fun too at the children’s wet play area and pool. Thinking of lounging in the sun? Hangout at the dipping pools and spa pavilions, or find a cool spot at one of the six themed gardens.

By now you should know that D’Leedon never falls short on aesthetics; the condominium is an art piece in and of itself. Take a look around and you’ll see sculptures by renowned international and local artists.

4. Transportation and Accessibility

D’Leedon is easily accessible by both public transportation and personal vehicle. You can reach Farrer Road MRT Station by foot in five minutes. Holland Village MRT Station is one stop away (many food options!), while Botanic Gardens MRT Station, also a stop away but in the other direction, gives you access to the Downtown Line. You can reach the Central Business District in less than half an hour.

Queensway is just a short drive away, which in turn leads to Bukit Timah Road and the major expressways, PIE and AYE. Getting to the Central Business District takes about 15 minutes’ drive, whereas Orchard Road is a mere five-minute drive along Holland Road. Heading to the east region of Singapore or Changi Airport? It will take you less than 30 minutes.

5. Amenities and Healthcare

There shouldn’t be any complaints about finding a place to shop for groceries or have a nice meal. You can find an array of amenities within close proximity! The closest place to shop and eat is at Empress Road Market and Food Centre. More eating establishments can be found if you drive down to the famous Adam Food Centre (three-minute drive), Holland Village (six-minute drive), Dempsey Hill (seven-minute drive) and Robertson Quay (15-minute drive).

Need more shopping options? Take short drives to malls (all under 10 minutes!) such as Raffles Holland V Mall, Holland Road Shopping Centre, Holland Piazza, Coronation Plaza, The Star Vista and Rochester Mall. For shopping at designer boutiques, visit the string of malls at Orchard Road.

There’s a number of recreational places you can spend unforgettable weekends with your loved ones. Have a picnic at Botanic Gardens (five-minute drive), or play bowling and have a futsal match with at SAFRA Mount Faber, which is roughly a six-minute drive away. Want to de-stress on the putting green? Tanglin Club is just a 14-minute drive away.

6. Education

Parents, you must be wondering what schools are nearby and convenient for your children. This development is close to many educational institutions that’s within walking distance and reasonable driving distance (10-minute drive).

Preschools, primary and secondary schools such as St. James’ Church Kindergarten, Maris Stella Kindergarten, Nanyang Primary School, Raffles Girls’ Primary School, ACS (International) Singapore, Hwa Chong Institution and St Margaret’s Secondary School. Tertiary institutions (National Junior College) and International schools (Melbourne Specialist International School and Tanglin Trust School) are also in the area.

7. Future Developments within and near District 10

According to URA’s Draft Master Plan 2019, Bukit Timah will undergo a green transformation with the planned Bukit Timah-Rochor Green Corridor that connects three national gardens: Singapore Botanic Gardens, Gardens by the Bay, and Jurong Lake Gardens. The Bukit Timah Railway Station and the Station Master’s Quarter will be a gateway to the Rail Corridor, a 24km Rail Corridor (opening in 2021) that’s highly accessible and connected to heritage, recreational and business areas.

Bukit Timah residents can look forward to a revamped Beauty World. There’s going to be an Integrated Transport Hub that provides bus-rail transfers and Bukit Timah Community Building, a one-stop integrated facility that consists of a community club, redeveloped market and hawker centre at Beauty World MRT Station. More new amenities will be built too, such as an indoor sports hall, community library and elderly facility to help enhance liveability.

The new Dover Knowledge District, a mixed-use site that is meant to be an extension to one-north (suited to technology companies), the Greater Southern Waterfront (a heritage and lifestyle hub) and the expansion of two Integrated Resorts – Resorts World Sentosa and Marina Bay Sand, will produce more commercial and entertainment developments, resulting in more job opportunities and thus, a high demand in housing.

Plans to enhance Orchard Road as a Lifestyle Destination include Tanglin being a mixed-use neighbourhood with a strong arts and artisanal presence. The conserved Tudor Court will showcase more arts, cultural and lifestyle offerings. The upcoming opening of the Orchard Boulevard MRT station on the Thomson-East Coast Line will bring added convenience to visitors in this sub-precinct.

D’Leedon makes a great investment and family home – who says you can’t have the best of both worlds? With good schools and the establishment of more commercial hubs around the development, it’s definitely an ideal place for you and your loved ones to grow and live in. Love the sound of everything above? Make D’Leedon yours. We’ll be honoured to be part of your housing journey!
