SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - Boulevard 88 is a 28-storey, 154-unit freehold luxury development situated in the heart of District 10’s Orchard Boulevard. The project, by City Developments Ltd (CDL) and its joint-venture partners – Hong Leong Holdings Limited and Lea Investments – is expected to be completed in 2022.
The two residential towers are also positioned above The Singapore Edition Hotel, a luxury space conceived by American hotelier Ian Schrager and Marriott International. Boulevard 88 comprises a range of two- to four-bedroom units, and has four penthouses.
What makes Boulevard 88 unique is its environmentally friendly design. For example, the building is equipped with features to reduce energy and water consumption while encouraging eco-conscious lifestyles and habits like recycling.

The development’s orientation also allows the building to maximise natural ventilation in the common areas and dwelling units. Indoor air quality is also kept at healthy levels with the use of low-volatile organic compounds paint for all the internal walls.
Thanks to these features, Boulevard 88 has earned the BCA Green Mark Gold Plus Award. On Oct 18, CDL also bagged an award for Sustainability Excellence at the EdgeProp Singapore Excellence Awards 2019 for the development.
According to CDL’s integrated sustainability report 2019 released in March, it is the first Singapore real estate company to set carbon emissions intensity reduction target of 59% as validated by Science Based Targets Initiative. The group also pledged to construct at least one Super Low Energy Building in the next five years, and has achieved more than $24 million in savings due to energy-efficient initiatives and retrofitting at eight office buildings from 2012 to 2018.
