Another New Launch . The Gazania Condo

On August 23, 2018, in The Inflora Condo, by Developer Sales Team

The Gazania condo is a new launch coming up in 2018 that follows the same tradition of being named after a flower. It is a safe bet – you can’t go far wrong with that, and it usually sounds pretty.

While the Gazania condominium is not part of this series of floral themed residences by Hong Leong Holdings at the aptly named Flora Drive, nevertheless it shares many similar characteristics.

Firstly, the Gazania is also a low-rise high development, in a low density area. It is just 5 storeys tall in a mainly landed estate, making for a pleasant resort-like ambience. The low density of the site allows for more landscaped areas and gardens, compared to built-up areas too.

It is also located in an almost exclusively private residential estate, with no HDB precinct in sight.

But there are quite major points of differences too. While the earlier condominiums at Flora Drive, such as Azalea Park and Ballota Park hold freehold tenure, the later ones such as Inflora and Jovell are 99 year leasehold developments. The Gazania condo, being on freehold land, differs from these later projects at Flora Drive.

The Gazania also enjoys one huge advantage – it is less than 5 minutes walk from an MRT station, making it much more attractive in terms of accessibility. On the flip side, the Flora Drive condos, being so deep inside a private residential estate and away from transport nodes, enjoys a greater sense of seclusion.

The Jovell is taller than The GazaniaThe Jovell . 8 Storeys vs 5 Storeys for The Gazania

Given these two advantages that the Gazania condo enjoys, freehold stature and proximity to the MRT network, it is inevitable that the pricing level would be a lot higher. While exact pricing details are not available yet, expectations are for an at least 50% higher price point. So we are possibly looking at somewhere around $2,000 PSF as the average Gazania price point, compared to around $1,200 PSF for the Jovell.

So it depends on what you are looking for. If a freehold tenure and having an MRT within walking distance are your prime considerations, then come view the Gazania showflat. But if price and a very peaceful quiet environment appeals more, take a look at the Jovell.


The Inflora :: Private Condo @ EC Prices

On October 2, 2013, in The Inflora Condo, by Developer Sales Team

The Inflora condo has SOLD OUT within 3 weeks of its launch (90% on its VIP Preview day alone) due to its very attractive pricing.

But another condo is launching for sale right beside Inflora, called the Jovell, at the lowest pricing on the market currently, by the same developer. If you would like to know more about this new condo, please see The Jovell.


The Inflora Condo is a lovely low-rise condominium in the cosy private residential enclave of Flora Drive near Changi Airport. Surrounded by private condominiums and low-rise housing, in an oasis of peace and seclusion. Being launched for sale by developer Hong Leong Holdings (CDL).

The Inflora Condo

If you want a condo at EC prices but without EC restrictions, or are not eligible for an EC, this project might be the answer. It is by a brand name developer too, with the same attention to detail and quality given to its higher end projects.

This 8-storey condominium comprises one bedroom, 2 bedroom, 2 + Study (at $7xxK), 3 bedroom, 4 bedroom, and even 4 bedroom dual key units, as well as 3 bedroom roof terrace apartments. The relatively low-rise nature of this, and surrounding condos, gives this estate an uncongested open feel.


The Inflora Condo :: Feature Highlights

  1. Located in an established residential estate, surrounded by mid and low-rise private housing. Quiet and laid back, relaxed environment.
  2. 8-storey high condominium: low density, with more space per resident than high-rise condos.
  3. As the crow flies, 1.2km to the nearest upcoming Tampines East (DT33) MRT station. By road, it’s 2km away.
  4. Tampines Town Centre (including Tampines MRT station, Tampines Mall, Tampines 1) are 3.5km away by road. Pasir Ris MRT station and White Sands are also around the same distance away.
  5. All units fully fitted with wardrobes, aircon, and ALL appliances including fridge & washer/dryer.
  6. Room sizes are decent. All common bedrooms can accommodate a double (queen) sized bed.
  7. The Japanese Primary School is barely 5 minutes walk up Flora Drive.

For more information see project details or prices.



The Inflora condominium is now completely sold out. But we have other projects in Pasir Ris available for sale.

Besides the Jovell, which is mentioned at the top of this page, an exciting upcoming one is Pasir Ris 8. Pasir Ris 8 is a mixed development that is being built on the empty plot of land right beside Pasir Ris MRT station. It will comprise a retail component, in addition to the housing component, and will link seamlessly to Pasir Ris MRT station itself.

The developer for Pasir Ris 8 is a joint venture of Allgreen Properties, and Kerry Properties. Both are very reputable in their own rights. They won the tender to develop this parcel based on a 2 envelope system, where the design was assessed and shortlisted, before the price offered was considered.

The launch and VIP Preview of the Pasir Ris 8 showflat is likely to take place in the 2nd half of 2020. The Pasir Ris 8 prices and floor plans have not been released yet, as they generally come out around the same time as the showflat launch.

However if you are interested, just head over to the Pasir Ris 8 webpage and drop us a line there, and we will keep you posted.


2024 Update . Lumina Grand Price & Launch

City Developments will be launching a new executive condo for sale in early 2024. This is the Lumina Grand EC at Bukit Batok, close to its border with Tengah new town. Its exact location is at the corner of Bukit Batok Road and Bukit Batok West Avenue 5.

What is interesting is that the Lumina Grand pricing will actually be a fair bit higher than Inflora’s pricing. This is despite the fact that Inflora is a private condo, whereas Lumina Grand is an executive condominium. But the market has gone up so drastically in the intervening years, that Lumina Grand prices will start from around $1,4xx PSF.

The Lumina Grand showflat is tentatively targeting to open for viewing in mid January 2024. Do drop us a line if you are interested to know more.


The Inflora Condo @ Flora Drive

On September 11, 2013, in The Inflora Condo, by Developer Sales Team

The Inflora condo is the latest and last of a line of condominium projects developed by Hong Leong Holdings at Flora Drive named after flowers or plants. The first being Azalea Park, followed by Ballota Park, Carissa Park, Dahlia Park, Edelweiss Park, Ferraria Park, The Gale (which, believe it or not, is a plant), Hedges Park, and now The Inflora (but note that this name is yet to be approved, so it might change).

Together with Palm Isles, Parc Olympia, Avila Gardens, Estella Gardens, and the landed housing nearby, the whole neighbourhood makes for a delightful and unharried residential experience. Considering how close this precinct is to Changi Airport (5 minutes drive), it is surprisingly peaceful too.

The Inflora Condo Location Highlights

There is no MRT within walking distance. Instead a bus plies the estate, shuttling residents to Tampines Mall and MRT station, 10 minutes bus ride away. (It is hard to realise amidst the slumbering peace of these condos in Flora Drive beyond sight of any HDB flat, that a whole HDB estate with its host of amenities actually sits on the doorstep.)

The condominiums here are much favoured by airport and flight staff, as well as those working in the nearby business hubs such as Tampines and Changi Business Parks, as much for their proximity and laid back lifestyle, as their affordability.

Prices here haven’t risen yet to the stratospheric heights seen elsewhere. Hedges Park, which sold out in June 2013, averaged around $900 PSF. The Inflora condo may likely (given inflation and rising construction and labour costs) sell for around the low $900’s PSF.

In today’s stimulus-driven-at-the-drop-of-a-hat global economy awash in liquidity, any new Singapore condo launching at below $1,000 PSF is a rare find. Especially one by an established and trusted brand name developer. We hope The Inflora will prove to be one of those rare finds.

Available details are The Inflora location and some project details.

Keep an eye here, and we will update when more news is available on The Inflora condo. Here is an update on the sales at the launch.




If you have been looking for a freehold development in the high-end District 9 area, this new project to be called RV Altitude or One Pearl Bank should interest you. It might be more affordable than the other new freehold developments in the area, as the developer Roxy-Pacific Holdings, is known for building boutique-like smaller units. This should translate into smaller quantum amounts, so that it will be within the financial capacities of more buyers.

One Pearl Bank will be a high rise condominium, of around 110 apartment, in the vicinity of the St Thomas Walk / Killiney Road area. This is on the outskirts of Orchard Road, within around 10 to 15 minutes walk from the most famous and upmarket shopping street in Singapore. Strictly speaking, it lies along River Valley Road itself (hence the RV in the RV Altitude name), one of a string of such upscale developments along this stretch of road leading down to the Central Business District (CBD).

The nearest MRT station to One Pearl Bank or RV Altitude right now is Somerset station. However in future, once the Great World MRT station on the Thomson East Coast line is ready, probably around 2021, that will be even nearer. Like less than 5 minutes walk.

The size of RV Altitude or One Pearl Bank, with the 110 units, is big enough to support a reasonable number of facilities. With a plot ratio of 2.8, it will be 18 storeys high, around the same height as neighbouring condominiums.

The RV Altitude showflat is not ready for viewing yet. Roxy-Pacific has not announced when the launch will be, nor any details on pricing. However if you are keen to know more, or to arrange a viewing of the RV Altitude condo showflat, just hop over to the page and drop us a line.

Another very interesting and attractive project will be the Reserve Residences. This is the residential component of an integrated development. What makes it so attractive are two things: its direct underground link to the concourse level of Beauty World MRT station, and its location directly opposite Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and Park.

Mid to high floor residents of the Reserve Residences condo will get what most projects wish for, and few enjoy – clear unblocked views of swathes of greenery, stretching all the way into the distance, to the waters of Upper Peirce Reservoir. That’s a view that won’t go away for quite a while, if ever.

On top of all that, there is the convenience of having your own mall and retail shops at the ground level too. Not to mention the number of renowned schools and educational institutes in the vicinity. The Reserve Residences showflat is likely to open for VIP Preview and launch in mid 2022. Registration for viewing slots will open about 2 to 3 weeks before that, but pricing will typically not be announced till the actual booking / sales day. The developer is quite a well-known name, Far East Organisation. They have plenty of experience in producing integrated and mixed developments. For example, they are also currently developing One Holland Village, which is another landmark project too.
