AMO Residence, the 372-unit condo at Ang Mo Kio Rise by UOL Group, Singapore Land (SingLand) and Kheng Leong Co, racked up seven awards at the EdgeProp Singapore Excellence Awards (EPEA) 2023. At the awards ceremony held on Oct 6, the project garnered wins for Top Development, Landscape Excellence, Design Excellence, Sustainability Excellence, Innovation Excellence, Marketing Excellence and Showflat Excellence.
AMO Residence occupies a 99-year leasehold site off Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1 in District 20. The 136,480 sq ft residential plot was awarded to Unite Venture Development (2021), a 60:20:20 joint venture between UOL Group, SingLand and Kheng Leong through a Government Land Sale tender in June 2021. The joint venture partners beat 14 other competitors for the site with a winning bid of $381.38 million ($1,118 psf per plot ratio or psf ppr).
A year later, the developer previewed AMO Residence. Designed by P&T Consultants, the condo consists of two 25-storey towers. It has a mix of two- to five-bedroom units ranging from 614 sq ft to 1,475 sq ft. There are also three penthouses measuring between 2,293 and 2,497 sq ft. The development is slated for completion in 2026.

The project launched for sale on July 23, 2022, and saw a stellar response, with 98% of the condo’s units sold on the first day of launch. Caveats lodged with URA as of Oct 1 show that only two units remain to be sold, both penthouses measuring 2,293 sq ft each. The 370 sold units were transacted at an average price of $2,112 psf, setting a new benchmark for condo prices in the Outside Central Region.

Mature estate

The launch of AMO Residence marked the first new condo in Ang Mo Kio in over eight years. The area’s last new private residential project was the 698-unit The Panorama at Ang Mo Kio Avenue 2, launched in January 2014 and completed in 2017.
AMO Residence’s location in the mature Ang Mo Kio estate contributed significantly to its appeal among buyers. The condo enjoys proximity to several amenities, including malls such as AMK Hub, Thomson Plaza and Junction 8, less than a 10-minute drive away, and hawker centres such as Cheng San Market and Mayflower Market. Residents can also access nearby parks and green spaces like the Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park and Lower Peirce Reservoir Park. A cycling path looping around the estate is currently being constructed in phases, bolstering connectivity within Ang Mo Kio and surrounding neighbourhoods.
Several schools are located in the estate, making it an attractive neighbourhood for families. Schools within 1km of AMO Residence include Ai Tong School on Bright Hill Drive, CHIJ St Nicholas Girls’ School at Ang Mo Kio Street 13 and Ang Mo Kio Primary School at Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3.
The development is a five-minute walk to the Mayflower MRT Station on the Thomson-East Coast Line, one stop from the Bright Hill MRT Interchange Station on the future Cross Island Line. The future North-South Corridor, slated to be completed in 2026, will reduce driving travel times to the CBD by up to 30 minutes.

Reservoir-themed landscape

Given its proximity to beautiful parks, it is little wonder that the AMO Residence’s design draws inspiration from nearby natural landscapes. “AMO Residence blends harmonious architecture with a reservoir-themed landscape design inspired by the surrounding nature and greenery,” said Jesline Goh, UOL’s chief investment and asset officer, in a July 2022 press release announcing the condo’s preview.
Over 60% of the project’s site is dedicated to landscaping and facilities. The condo’s grounds incorporate several pools and water features into the reservoir theme. The focal point is the 50m infinity pool between the two blocks of residences. Other facilities include a tennis court, a clubhouse, three function rooms, outdoor cooking and dining areas, a gym and a playground.

The facilities are divided into three main zones throughout the site, which in turn provide a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces that cater to residents’ different lifestyle needs. Three different function rooms can be used for entertaining guests and working. Different pockets of spaces to relax and rejuvenate have also been weaved into the development, such as the picturesque cabanas by the pool, a hammock deck and a foot reflexology area.
Yvonne Tan, director of landscape architecture consultancy DP Green and one of the judges for the EPEA observes that the project’s facilities have been thoughtfully curated and placed throughout the site. “By having a good placement of the facilities, the project was able to include a very long swimming pool, which contributes to the interesting waterscape,” she adds.

Consideration was also given to the condo’s orientation, with the towers positioned in a north-south direction that allows over half the condo units to have unblocked views of the surrounding parks and low-rise housing enclaves.
According to the developer, the landscaping at AMO Residence is designed to make the development blend in with the natural surroundings. Various indigenous and tropical planting will offer a lush and organic landscape. Over time, as the plants mature, the landscape will create a natural barrier between the development and its immediate surroundings while visually contributing to the area’s greenery.

Luxurious and functional homes

The residences at AMO Residence were crafted to provide modern, luxurious homes balanced with functionality. Two-bedroom units feature a dumbbell layout that maximises efficiency, while two-bedroom premium apartments come with an additional niche space that can be turned into a study or used for additional storage. Four- and five-bedroom units have private lift access, while five-bedders have separate wet and dry kitchen areas.

Interior finishes chosen for the homes offer both aesthetics and ease of maintenance. In the two- and three-bedders, tiles with a marble effect are used for the living, dining, and bathroom flooring, while the bedrooms have vinyl flooring. Three-bedroom premium units and four- and five-bedders have marble flooring in the living, dining and kitchen areas, while timber flooring is provided in the bedrooms. In five-bedroom units, the dry kitchen area comes with a marble feature wall.
The three penthouses at AMO Residence were exclusively designed by Takenouchi Webb, a Singapore-based design firm that has worked on projects such as the Citadines service apartment at CapitaSpring, The Coconut Club restaurant on Beach Road, and Tanjong Beach Club in Sentosa.

Penthouses at AMO Residence feature marble flooring in the common areas and timber flooring in the bedrooms. The master bedroom timber flooring is installed in a herringbone pattern, while the bathroom has a customised marble vanity.
All homes at the development are equipped with smart home features such as a digital lockset, IP cameras for home security and surveillance, and smart air-conditioners. Residents also have access to a mobile app for services such as the bookings of facilities and visitor e-registrations.
