Once completed, The Antares is set to be a focal point of accessibility and convenience, a rising star in the Macpherson enclave. The development, by consortium FSKH Development, lies on Mattar Road in District 14, and will be linked directly to Mattar MRT station through a sheltered walkway, reducing the walking distance to a mere one minute.

Befitting its name as the brightest star in the galaxy, The Antares is designed to illuminate the skyline of Macpherson. Guests will be greeted at an arrival plaza that is accentuated with metal stripes, creating an interplay of lights and shadows. The starlit lap pool will also boast a ceiling, fitted with hundreds of lights - residents will be made to believe they are swimming under the Milky Way, as though under a blanket of stars.
For those who are seeking an active lifestyle, there is a 24-hour gym and a CrossFit circuit. Meanwhile, water facilities such as a water spa offer relaxation. There are also ample corners throughout the development offering reprieve - residents can cosy up at the lush rooftop garden, the swing nook, or the cabana and hammock alcove.
The Antares also comes with a range of outdoor dining options, from the sky lounge, to the sky al fresco pavilion that offers the option for gatherings to be held under the night sky. Residents also get to enjoy a unique farm-to-table experience, plucking garden-fresh condiments from the project’s own herbs garden.
The young ones are also not left out at The Antares, with dedicated children facilities, such as a Kid’s Rock Climbing Zone and a space-themed Kid’s Planet for them to roam about safely.

Unparalleled connectivity and upside potential

Located at a strategic location, The Antares is close to major expressways that connect all of Singapore. It takes just 15 minutes to the CBD via Nicoll Highway, and is within a 10-minute car ride to the Pan Island Expressway (PIE) and Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE). Even those who use public transport will benefit from the convenience of proximity, as Macpherson MRT station, which serves both the Circle and Downtown lines, is just one stop away from Mattar.
The Antares is poised to enjoy an unlimited upside potential. With the Singapore government’s push to rejuvenate the business districts in the city as areas to “live, work and play”, residents can witness and enjoy the transformation of the Downtown CBD, Marina Bay Financial Hub and Kallang Hub. Undoubtedly, this would help create buzz and livelihood in office precincts, and add further convenience to residents at The Antares.
With its proximity to the CBD, the development is bound to receive demand from working professionals who need to commute to the business district daily. Undeniably, the proximity would also create rental opportunities for the project.
Two stops away from Mattar, one can find Paya Lebar Central, an upcoming regional business hub that is linked directly to Paya Lebar MRT station. Retail and lifestyle options are aplenty with offerings from the recently completed Paya Lebar Quarter (PLQ), Paya Lebar Square, Singpost Centre, and Lifelong Learning Institute.
Even the Kallang neighbourhood, which houses the Singapore Sports Hub, is set to be further enhanced as a world-class destination for sports and entertainment by 2025. Once brought to fruition, the area around the existing Singapore Sports Hub, called Kallang Alive, is set to occupy 89ha of land as a mixed-use lifestyle precinct, comprising a football hub, tennis centre, youth hub and velodrome. There are also plans for an iconic circular walking and cycling loop which links to the Park Connector Network, offering homeowners at The Antares yet further recreation choice.
Presently, the Singapore Sports Hub sprawls some 35ha, and comprises sporting and entertainment facilities, such as the 55,000-seater National Stadium, Singapore Indoor Stadium, OCBC Aquatic Centre and Kallang Wave Mall. To add further vibrancy into the Kallang area, six new developments will be built to complement the Singapore Sports Hub.
The Singapore Sports Hub is within close reach to residents at The Antares, at 10 minutes away by car. For those keen on taking public transport, a direct bus or train right outside the development brings residents to the destination.
Closer to home, the Macpherson neighbourhood is about to receive a facelift. Three residential blocks at MacPherson Lane are set to undergo the Selective En Bloc Redevelopment Scheme, or SERS - a programme offered only to HDB blocks in high redevelopment potential sites. With the injection of a new housing hub, shops and other lifestyle facilities, this would undoubtedly highlight further value to the neighbourhood.

Endless dining and recreation amenities

The Antares is already home to a host of food options within its vicinity. Popular eateries can be found along MacPherson Road, and at Circuit Road Hawker Centre nearby. It is also close to FairPrice and Giant supermarkets. Even NEX Mall in Serangoon is a short eight-minute drive away from the development.
For outdoor lovers, a tributary of the Kallang River - Pelton Canal - cuts diagonally through the MacPherson estate, offering a scenic view within the city. The Pelton Canal Park Connector, at 2.52 km, links to the Kallang Park Connector, which provides users with access to Kallang Riverside Park and Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park. Residents can also jog or cycle through the residential areas in Upper Boon Keng, Paya Lebar Way and Circuit Road. The 10ha Bidadari Park, slated for completion in 2022, is only a five-minute drive away.
For homeowners with families, the development is also close to several prestigious schools - Nexus International School, Canossa Catholic Primary School, Kong Hwa School and Geylang Methodist Primary and Secondary Schools.
At such a close proximity to work and play options, The Antares is at the heart of the location to reap the upside value of the transformation and rejuvenation of Singapore’s major business districts.
