To adapt to a post-pandemic lifestyle, Clavon has adapted its offerings to suit. Comprising 640 residential units, the 99-year leasehold development provides an on-site co-working space with dedicated working pods for residents’ privacy. Singapore-listed UOL Group and its joint-venture partner and UOL subsidiary, Singapore Land Group, have described the project as being “designed in response to changing lifestyles”.
As a result of its future-forward approach to a new lifestyle, Clavon was awarded the title of Innovation Excellence at the annual EdgeProp Excellence Awards (EPEA) 2021 Ceremony held on Nov 24.
Located along Clementi Avenue 1, the development occupies a 99-year leasehold site of 178,067 sq ft. The residential units are spread across 37-storey twin towers in a north-south orientation to avoid the glare of the morning and afternoon sun. At night, the crown atop each tower is illuminated with concealed lighting, forming an iconic image against the city skyline.

“Minimising its footprint on the site with its two sleek glass-clad towers that are architecturally modern in outlook, the organisation of facilities on the site is clear and well thought out,” says Khew Sin Khoon, group CEO of CPG Corporation and one of the six judges at EPEA 2021.
Clavon was well-received at its launch weekend on Dec 12 last year, with 70% of its total units snapped up by eager buyers at an average price of $1,640 psf. Although one- and two-bedders were heavily sought after, the larger three-, four- and five-bedroom apartments also saw high demand.

Amenities on a landscaped terrain
UOL utilised the sloped terrain of Clavon’s site, creating layered landscape decks with pools, gardens and cascading waterfalls. “In designing the softscape, an emphasis is placed on the layering of plants to enhance the character of a verdant urban resort. Priority is given to indigenous species and shade-giving trees to increase the ground cover and restore the site’s natural biodiversity,” UOL explains.
To that end, the upper deck comprises facilities like a 50m lap pool, cabanas and air-conditioned pavilions near the residential blocks. UOL had planned for this area to be a “tranquil zone”, more suited for adults and smaller group gatherings.

In contrast, the lower deck offers facilities for children, like a kids’ pool and playground, which are “more conducive for family fun”, it adds. “This subtle but important delineation allows the residential blocks and upper deck to enjoy a greater level of privacy while still being able to oversee the children’s activities below.”

“The planning of the site using clever landscaping layers and level changes employing its blue and green strategies lends itself to creating a variety of intimate spaces for the residents to enjoy, whilst still being able to relate well to the whole site,” notes Khew.
The lap pool is flanked by two glass pavilions, housing the function and entertainment rooms, a gym and social space. The latter was conceived as an “innovative space”, a balance between a typical work-from-home environment and a more formal workplace, says UOL.

Keeping in line with Singapore’s vision of Live, Work and Play, Clavon also boasts a childcare centre and bicycle parking facilities on its grounds. This hones in on the “concept of active mobility, while [providing] access to nearby amenities”, it shares.
To create a dedicated public access zone, the childcare centre and tennis court at Clavon will be located to the north of the site, near the development’s entrance.

Strategic location
Located in District 5 within the Clementi neighbourhood, Clavon allows fuss-free travel for homeowners to the city centre through major expressways like PIE and AYE. It is a 12-minute walk to Clementi MRT Station on the East-West Line.
On top of that, the development is also a stone’s throw away from a wide range of reputable educational institutions, including the National University of Singapore and Nan Hua Primary and High School.
In July 2019, UOL won the land plot for Clavon in a government land sales tender with a bid of $491.3 million or $788 psf per plot ratio. This rode on the momentum of The Clement Canopy, another UOL project located next to Clavon that was launched at the end of February 2017 and fully sold by March 2019.
To date, the latest transaction at Clavon was for a 1,281 sq ft unit on the 27th floor that transacted for $2.21 million ($1,721 psf) on Nov 14, based on caveats lodged with URA. On Nov 12, a 1,690 sq ft unit on the 19th floor sold for $2.71 million ($1,604 psf).
