If you are looking for the source of the iconic image that pop culture most often uses to represent the city of Miami- the one where neon pink and blue lights shine off art deco style buildings, all lined along a heavily trafficked street, separated from the Atlantic Ocean by a large strip of sandy white beach; its origin is none other than the popular tourist destination of South Beach. Situated in the very exclusive area of Silat Avenue in District 3, it is developed by UOL Group Limited; one of Singapore's largest developers of whom holds an extensive portfolio of investment and development properties, with joint venture by UIC and Kheng Leong.
Besides the shopping mall, avenue south residence showflat is also close to many major food centres such as 112 Jalan Bukit Merah Market and Food Centre, Tiong Bahru Market and Food Centre, 36 Telok Blangah Rise Market and Food Centre, 22A Havelock Road Food Centre, 11 Telok Blangah Crescent Market and Food Centre, 115 Bukit Merah View Market and Food Centre, Beo Crescent Market and 6 Tanjong Pagar Plaza Market and Food Centre.
Proposed residential flat development comprising 2 blocks of 56-storey apartments with multi- storey & basement carparks & communal facilities and additions & alterations to existing 5 blocks of conserved 4-storey flats (total: 86 units) involving new shops & childcare centre on lot (s) 04175c, 04179p & 04185k mk01 at Silat Avenue.
With plans already in motion to seamlessly combine Sentosa, Marina Bay and Labrador Park into a single incredible waterfront living experience that will span nearly twice the size of Punggol, residents can expect a couple more high-rise frontiers popping up (potentially blocking bay views) alongside increased access to various parks and nature trails linking the waterfront.
Avenue South Residence is located in the Bukit Merah area that is just minutes walk to the business district and Raffles Place and is located next to the section of the Rail Corridor that the government has plans to turn it into a community space for the residents.
Extending from Pasir Panjang to Marina East, the transformation of the Greater Southern Waterfront, comprising over 2,000 hectares of prime waterfront land, will contribute to a dynamic city centre with exuberant business and lifestyle opportunities.
According to Ms. Tricia Song, head of research for Singapore at Colliers International, Silat Avenue is an appealing site within two kilometers from the Central Business District, and we think the underwhelming tender outcome could be due to the large size of the site and relatively untested location, away from MRT stations”.
As the government recently released more information on future development plans for the Greater Southern Waterfront and the CBD under the 2019 URA Master Plan , it does seem to be a big draw for those who are considering to buy a unit at Avenue South Residence.
