Project Details

Westwood Residences Flyer v1- front

Westwood Residences EC @Westwood Avenue is the next exciting EC development to be launched in the first half of 2015. Westwood Residences is only the second EC in the west of Singapore in 18 years — after LakeLife at Yuan ChingRoad which received strong response of interest and 95% of the units was sold out during the first day of preview.. Near Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and the future Jurong Lake District, this development promises to be a convenient option for many working professionals and families alike, whether they are looking to live near their workplace, or near their children’s place of study.  The area surrounding Westwood Residences EC is within a landed enclave, adding to the exclusive feel of the place.

Why Westwood Residences EC will be in high demand. (All sizes are only estimation. Subject to final surveyors' approval.)

1.       Low Supply of ECs in West: Westwood Residences will be only the second EC to launch in the West of Singapore in 17 years. The first being Lakelife EC which was sold out on the first day of launch in late 2014.

2.       Great Accessibility.  Westwood Residences EC is located near the entrance to PIE expressway, which makes commuting to Orchard, CBD and other areas in Singapore a breeze. AYE expressway is another option for residents traveling to CBD. The nearest MRT station is Boon Lay MRT, which is located along the convenient East-West Line.

3.       Amenities Galore. As Jurong is a mature estate, expect to enjoy lots of amenities nearby Westwood Residences. Gek Poh Shopping Centre is within walking distance away, and new exciting malls like JEM, Westgate and JCube just a short train ride away. Immerse yourself in the lush greenery that Jurong West has to offer, including the famed Japanese and Chinese Gardens.

4.       Education Haven. Westwood Residences EC is located in the west of Singapore, home to many of the best known educational institutes, bringing great convenience to students, professors and other tertiary workers. Both NTU and NUS are nearby Westwood Residences. Other notable educational institutes nearby include INSEAD, River Valley High, NUS High, Yuhua, etc.

5.       High rental potential: Westwood Residences EC is located near the future Jurong Lake District, which is slated to be the second biggest business hub in Singapore after the CBD. There will be a huge tenant base and rental demand.

6.       First bicycle-themed development with a velodrome and traffic garden to cater to all your cycling needs.

Westwood Residences EC is likely to be the last EC launch in Jurong in the foreseeable coming 2 years.

  • For e.g. a single person above 21 can buy a EC from the open market.

Unique Development

Biked-Themed

THE NATIONAL CYCLING PLAN1

With cycling as a form of sustainable, healthy and inclusive transport and recreational activity, Singapore is working towards becoming a bike-friendly city. The National Cycling Plan is a government initiative to develop cycling routes for recreational and short commuting purposes, which will be integrated into a comprehensive network throughout Singapore. By 2015, 100 km of intra-town cycling paths will have been developed in several cycling towns. Another 90 km of cycling paths will be added to more towns by 2020.

THE CYCLING LIFESTYLE STATEMENT

In the era of automobiles, taking to the roads on the bicycle is a lifestyle statement. The bicycle is not just a relatively inexpensive, healthy and environmentally friendly mode of transport, the bicycle is also an embodiment of the ethos of urban flaneur. The bicycle empowers individuals to explore their city to the less beaten path and take it slow in today’s fast-paced society. After all, life is always about the journey rather than the destination. Westwood Residences is your home where you can take a pause from your hectic lifestyle to relax and savour the experiences that life has to offer.

CYCLE TOWARDS BALANCED LIVING

Residents will be able to maintain a healthy lifestyle regime with the affordance of different cycling facilities throughout the development. The cycling enthusiast will be challenged by the changing gradients of the outdoor mini velodrome track. Situated within a park setting with pit stop and generous seating areas, cyclists will be able to take a short respite within the velodrome. Cyclists can also choose to weave through the connecting bike trail within the development. With a biometric vein scanner entry for every resident in Westwood Residences and CCTVs at every corner of the covered bike garage, you can be assured that your bikes are safely stored downstairs without having to clutter your home. Custom-design bike lockers with a lock pads provide extra security for those who choose to use them. The maintenance needs of your bicycles are also well taken care of with a dedicated space and provision of tools to wash, dry and repair your bikes.

INSPIRE YOUR KIDS IN THE RIGHT WAY

There is a special bond between kids and their bicycles that can never be broken. Riding a bicycle is a rite of passage and it is fun! Cycling is a healthy pastime that kids will never outgrow and there is nowhere better to bond with your kids and grandkids than within your residences!

Condo-Themed

Besides cycling, residents can opt to work out at two outdoor gym areas nestled under groves of shady trees or indoor gym within the clubhouse. They are all well-equipped with comprehensive sets of gym equipment required for a healthy work out. Alternatively, friendly competitions can be held at the tennis court/ half basketball/futsal court.

Revitalize the Spirit

A tapestry of green weaves through the perimeter of the residential building blocks. Interspersed within this weave of nature are pockets of gardens which will provide for intimate privacy and a quiet space of one’s own in the hectic city life. Likened to miniature pavilions, these pockets of gardens themed as flowering garden and secret garden will also cater for various activities including outdoor lounging, reading and resting. The totality of the Westwood Residence landscape will provide for a holistic relaxation experience to its future residents.
