SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - Developed by UOL Group, Principal Garden is located on Prince Charles Crescent in the sought-after Jervois Road neighbourhood, and was completed last year.
Befitting its name, close to 80% of the entire 268,713 sq ft site occupied by Principal Garden is an expanse of lush gardens, lawns, pools, and water features.

The positioning of the residential blocks against Alexandra Canal frees up the site to create an expansive foreground of open greenery and the greenery between the towers and Prince Charles Crescent ranges from 40m to 90m.
