AWARDS: Living with nature at The Clement Canopy

The 505-unit Clement Canopy is jointly developed by Singapore-listed UOL Group and its sister company Singapore Land. Launched for sale in February last year, the development was popular among homebuyers, with more than 200 units sold on its launch day. The Clement Canopy was fully sold by August this year. The 99-year leasehold development comprises two 40-storey blocks with a mix of two- to four-bedroom units of 635 to 1,539 sq ft.
The Clement Canopy won the Top Development Award in the uncompleted project category in the Non-Central Region at the EdgeProp Singapore Excellence Awards 2018 on Oct 3. The condominium also won the Landscape Excellence Award in the same category. The project’s concept, location and affordability were some of the factors that contributed to its high demand. With its immersive landscape environment, nature takes centre stage within the development, which stands out from other projects.

According to the judges of this year’s Edge- Prop Singapore Excellence Awards, one of the distinguishing aspects of The Clement Canopy is that its landscape adds to the overall usability of its space. “A pretty space that looks great but is not comfortable to use, or does not meet user needs, is an opportunity lost,” says Yvonne Tan, director at DP Green and one of the judges.
A development such as The Clement Canopy attracts homeowners who appreciate living close to nature and enjoy the relaxing lifestyle it provides, says fellow judge Ong Choon Fah, CEO of Edmund Tie & Co. “Wellness is a big draw for buyers today, and a well-conceived landscape and design concept adds value to a development and makes a difference in the type of home you come back to each day,” she says.
