When the 99-year leasehold Artra was launched officially in April last year, 130 units were sold on the first day of launch – or 65% of the 200 units released. The mixed-used development is built by FEC Skyline, a joint venture between Hong Kong-listed Far East Consortium International and New World Development Co. Located on Alexandra View, right next to Redhill MRT Station on the East-West Line, the development comprises 400 residential units and 16 commercial lots.
As of Aug 1, only about 11.5% of units are left for sale at Artra, according to Dennis Chiu, director at FEC Skyline. The buyers are mostly locals, and were mostly attracted to the three-bedroom+study units. He attributes Artra’s popularity among buyers to its close proximity to Redhill Station: a covered walkway will link the development to the train station. The development will also boast 16 commercial lots, which will give residents added convenience with easy access to amenities, he adds. A supermarket will occupy 10,760 sq ft of space at the development. Artra is also just a four-minute walk to Redhill Market.

Amenities in Redhill

As an extension of Redhill Station, Artra will provide more amenities to residents of the neighbourhood. “Redhill is predominantly a housing estate pocketed with market shops and a games court next to children’s playgrounds,” Chiu describes. Nearby developments include The Metropolitan Condo, Ascentia Sky, Echelon, Alex Residences and Redhill Rise, an HDB development that is directly opposite Artra.
Neighbourhood residents would be able to enjoy the convenience of proximity to the childcare centre in Artra, located on the second level of the development. Occupying 5,380 sq ft, it will cater for 100 children. There will also be a 1,076 sq ft children’s playground that is linked to the childcare centre.
