Avenue South Residence: Live-work-play along the Greater Southern Waterfront

Singapore-listed property firm UOL Group is set to launch the 99-year leasehold Avenue South Residence later this year. With 1,074 residential units and 13,993 sq ft of commercial space, the project on Silat Avenue will have twin 56-storey towers. At this height, the project is regarded as one of the tallest condo projects in Singapore.
The project will be developed jointly by UOL, United Industrial Corporation (UIC) and Kheng Leong Co in a 50:30:20 split.
Located off Kampong Bahru Road, Avenue South Residence will capitalise on its proximity to the 24km-long Rail Corridor and the Greater Southern Waterfront – a 2,000ha site of prime waterfront land. The latter is the area that will be freed up by the relocation of Tanjong Pagar, Pulau Brani and Pasir Panjang terminals.

The area was zoned by the URA in its 2013 Master Plan for long-term redevelopment into commercial and residential projects with work-live-play components. It will also offer new opportunities for new waterfront developments in the future.

In its Draft Master Plan 2019, the URA said it would rejuvenate the Central Area by increasing housing options in sites such as Downtown, Marina South and Rochor so that people can live closer to their workplaces. This plan is part of the URA’s move to bring more life to the CBD and Marina Bay area after office hours.
The URA also unveiled plans for a continuous waterfront promenade that will seamlessly connect various places of interest along the Greater Southern Waterfront in future. Along this corridor, the new Pasir Panjang Linear Park will connect West Coast Park to Labrador Nature Reserve. This will offer users a glimpse of Pasir Panjang’s working container port and Power District up close.
Other future connections will also link up places of interest along the waterfront to the hilltops, providing recreational options.
Besides being a beneficiary of these upcoming developments, Avenue South Residence is a short stroll to the Rail Corridor, a former railway line that stretches 24km from the north to the south of Singapore. The future Woodlands North Coast and Greater Southern Waterfront areas will...
