Gardens by the Bay is an iconic park in Central Singapore that houses two cooled conservatories
Singapore’s Garden City journey began in 1963, when then Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew launched the campaign. Greenery is now a major feature of our landscape.
The Edge Property has rounded up five notable gardens and parks, and the condominiums near them for prospective homebuyers who love greenery.
Gardens by the Bay is an iconic park in Central Singapore that spans 101 hectares and comprises three waterfront gardens – Bay South, Bay East and Bay Central. The two cooled conservatories – Flower Dome and Cloud Forest – replicate the climate and conditions suitable for plants from the Mediterranean regions and the tropical highlands. Other attractions include the grove of Supertrees, which are iconic tree-like vertical gardens up to 50 m tall, and the OCBC Skyway, an 128m long aerial walkway.
Located in the vicinity of Bay South Garden, Marina Bay Residences is a 428-unit leasehold condominium completed in 2010. In August this year, two 1,066 sq ft two-bedroom units were transacted at $2,100,000 or $1,971 psf while another 1,076 sq ft two-bedroom unit fetched $2,152,000 or $1,999 psf. The development was jointly developed by Cheung Kong Holdings, Hongkong Land and Keppel Land.
