Introduction

Singapore is experiencing the benefits of an increasing number of real estate developments after being on the slump for a long time in the earlier 2010’s. Almost all these projects have a strong selling point or a special feature that makes them unique to the market. Such is the case of the South Beach residences.

The project is being built on a piece of land located near 38 Beach Road that spreads over 3.5 hectares of surface parceled by well-transited routes surrounding the area. The land was purchased over by Singapore’s City Development Limited (CDL) and IOI Properties, a business conglomerate that has a deep role as landlords of high-end properties across the island.

CDL and IOI acquired the lot back on 2007 for $1.70 billion with tenure of 99 years on their leasehold. The project was developed shortly, and construction was concluded back in 2016. The total cost of the complex was $3 billion, and the result is a mixed development with a South and North towers that have very different features on each one of them.

The special location of the South Beach Residence at the seaside limits of the city, the property boasts 190 residential units with the most diverse amenities, a 5-star hotel, and over 500,000 square feet of the most luxurious space offices offered across the nation. The magnificent view of Marina Bay will offer easy access to conserved land where no further real estate developments will be built.

The project has already gathered the attention of investors all over the world because of the involvement of extraordinary French designer Phillippe Starck who was brought in by the CDL and IOI to give the project an edgy design full of daring and unconventional features combining green spaces with architectural wonders that mesh on a single unique ambiance.

Why would you invest in The South Beach Residences?

Summarizing an answer to this question is really easy after taking a first look at the project: The first one is the great natural sea view offered on nearly every angle of the property. The second one is the easy access to public transportation since the project is just shy from a ten-minute walk from the Esplanade MRT station and the third reason is that the location is surrounded by heritage land that does not allow further developments near it.

If we take a direct approach to our analysis and go further in our research, we can also notice the South Beach Residence is truly a luxury development offering a competitive property that will surely have costs measured to their relative high-end location.

While the residences offer living spaces with a wide range of units that go from basic 2-bedroom options measuring 968 sqft to large penthouses of 4 bedrooms measuring 5,629 sqft, the true mettle of the property is the hotel area and the spaces destined to commerce.

Many reviewers such as Alan Barr, the managing director of Greymatters have already stated that while the apartments offer some of the most luxurious high-end finishes he’s ever seen, is the Hotel area the one that can easily entice any investor who is looking for something unique. South Beach Residences has already earned two Green Mark Platinum Awards for their innovative use of green spaces and microclimatic canopy technology used to harvest rainwater as well as the use of lenticular cells and solar panels to convert sunlight into electricity to power at least 50% of the facilities.

The developers managed to overcome the difficulties of making the building look too obscure and darkened by the eco-friendly technology under the advice of Professor Chong Ken of the Singapore University, who works on the Department of Technology and Design Architecture and Sustainable energies. The projects surrounding the South beach residences include the development of almost 40,000 sqft of retail space destined to expand the offering of mall centers and other businesses. Initiatives such as the creation of a high-end gourmet court food rest on the lap of the developers pending approval. Established brands have already leased 14,500 sqft, so if you are looking for a prime location for a startup, this is the right place.

Overall, the best reason to invest in South beach residences could very well be for business interest rather than housing but no matter the angle it seems that each way is a reliable investment option. At least according to Professor Prem Shamdasani, from the National University of Singapore Business School who believes that with the right marketing the residence could become a “Destination Location” for passersby who wish to enjoy the Marina Bay area.

For starters, all residents have the chance to enjoy any of the beautiful sky gardens designed by Philippe Starck who infused contemporary sensibilities with ecological designs to offer a unique look and an opportunity to commune with nature in an exclusive way.

The project has a number of green technology-based features that make it stand out as one of the most eco-friendly real estate options out there. The extravagant features such as the video walls featuring animated graphics on the lobby areas also don’t hurt in the innovation department.

All the residents will surely enjoy the panoramic views offered by their own housing units, but they can also have access to shopping services that work on-site to deliver groceries, meals or any other form of service to their doorsteps.

There is more than one choice to indulge in a serious number of different options since the residences also offer high-end services in the form of concept stores, luxury restaurants and world-class theaters where you’ll be able to enjoy the latest cinema releases or stage plays. Big events can also take place on location since the plans include a big convention center for special occasions.

With the added amenities found outside location, the South Beach Residences are a world-class location that is alive at all hours of the days with many pubs, bars and entertainment centers offering their services at walking distances.

The main location of all planned features offered in the South beach residences can be appreciated on the stage by stage explained sitemap. The project as presented on these images is the most updated version planning process being developed for every space, as well as the proposed location of all the structures, facilities and amenities as well as a little historical reference of the locale:

The four conservation buildings compromise three 1930s army blocks (Blocks 1, 9 and 14) and the former NCO Club built in 1952. The old concrete buildings were given conservation status in 2002 due to their rich historical and architectural significance.

The development features two brand new buildings, one 45-stores tall and another 34-stores high; the complex is designed to house hotels, business offices, and household spaces. The original military-issued constructions of the Beach Road Camp have been remodeled to be used as retail space and lodging uses.

South Beach Residences were conceived by an architectural team on the Foster and Partners agency, at the request of the developers they applied eco-friendly technology such as the canopy filters strategically covering open spaces on the structure.

The new integrated development offers a mixture of low-rise conservation and medium to high rise buildings for commercial and hotel uses. The Urban Redevelopment Authority of Singapore required the developers to set aside at least 40% of the space for office use, and at least 30% of the space must be for hotel rooms.

The first store is laid out with internal streets and passages aimed to enhance street-level life and to allow residents and passersby to move easily. There will also be a special convention center that can hold 500 guests at all moments and a green axis from the basement MRT station exit to multi-tiered gardens.

At the present moment neither the Singapore’s City Development Limited, nor IOI Properties have released a floor plan for any of the apartments units advertised for the residences when further information becomes available the article will be updated with it. The only information released at the moment is the measure of each unit according to the number of bedrooms available on each one. The proposed list goes as it follows:

Number of Units Available Number of Bedrooms Measures of the unit
88 2-bedrooms 968 – 1647 sqft
61 3-bedrooms 1,733 – 2,260 sqft

The team behind South Beach Residences is a joined business venture formed by Singapore’s City Development Limited (CDL), and IOI Properties. Both companies have a reputation as well-established holders of real estate properties in Singapore who perceived the great potential to be exploited on the Beach road Camp housing historical buildings.

For both companies, this was a strategic location back in 2007 when Singapore was an emerging city. The property boarded the civic district and offered easy access to a good number of road, expressways and MRT stations. In a move that is very common for quite a number of real estate companies these days, each firm decided to join efforts to place a winning bid on the property instead of facings against each other.

Both companies have been heavily criticized for taking their time on the development and launch of the Residences, but given the jointed partnership cash flow and the 99-year lease, they have on the location. They have stated more than once that they rather prefer to work out all the details to perfection to launch the sale of apartment units, They currently taking leases for business units and office space.

The South Beach Residences Pricing and Payment Schedule

No information has been released about the pricing of the apartment units advertised on the project, but CDL and IOI have already turned down a $26 million offer for the 5-bedroom Penthouse from a private customer citing unsuitable conditions for the construction.
