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.
