SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - Joint developers Qingjian Realty (South Pacific) Group and Perennial Real Estate Holdings, opened the sales gallery at Forett At Bukit Timah for preview on July 25. The 633-unit condominium is the first large-scale project to open for preview in the second phase of reopening after the Covid-19 circuit breaker was lifted.
All the 250 appointment slots made available over the weekend for interested parties were taken up. "The turnout over the weekend is very encouraging," says Yen Chong, deputy general manager of Qingjian Realty.

To appeal to a mix of investors and owner occupiers, unit types range from one-bedroom-plus-study of 474 sq ft to five-bedroom suites of 1,884 sq ft.

Targeted to be completed by September 2024, the project is a redevelopment of the former Goodluck Garden, built in 1984. Qingjian and Perennial had purchased Goodluck Garden en bloc in 2018 for $610 million in a 60:40 joint venture. In order to keep a piece of Goodluck Garden’s history, the developers are conserving a 120m long, ivy-covered wall, which has been there for the past 36 years.

It’s also within a 10-minute drive of the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, Bukit Batok Nature Reserve and the upcoming Rail Corridor, as well as near the top schools in the Bukit Timah area.
