Located at the junction of New Upper Changi Road and Bedok South Avenue 3, the 720-unit Grandeur Park Residences condo has six 14- and 15-storey blocks spread across a 262,577 sq ft site. The project has a covered linkway to the Tanah Merah MRT Station on the East-West Line. The station is also an interchange for those heading to Changi Airport.
The project was developed by CEL Development, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Chip Eng Seng Group. Launched in March 2017; the first weekend of preview saw a crowd of 10,000. On the first weekend of the launch, 420 units (58.3%) were sold at an average of $1,350 psf.
The 99-year leasehold condominium is entirely sold and completed in 2020. Grandeur Park Residences won the Innovation Excellence and Top Development awards at the EdgeProp Excellence Awards 2022.

The development’s design concept centred around the theme of “body, mind, soul”, which was adopted in its landscape design and facilities. ADDP Architects designed the project with landscape architecture by Ecoplan Asia.
As the site is located within a mature residential estate, CEL Development was sensitive to the surroundings, holding regular dialogue sessions with residents in the neighbouring Limau Estate and the Member of Parliament for the area, Dr Mohamad Maliki Osman. Due to the difference in the sloping terrain — which ranges from 3m to 20m in height — the car park is part-basement and part-multi-storey to minimise cutting the site. Traffic analysis was also carried out to reduce the impact on the built environment.
“We took inspiration from the client’s brief, the site terrain and the project’s location near the MRT Station,” says Tang Kok Thye, associate partner of ADDP Architects.

Furthermore, the units at Grandeur Park Residences are fitted with an intelligent home system by Fermax that allows owners to control and automate their homes according to their lifestyle needs. These features include remote control, lighting control, door and window sensor and energy management.
Residents are entitled to a year’s complimentary membership to the Grandeur Club, which entitles them to classes and activites within the condominium. For instance, CEL Development has collaborated with Amore Fitness to organise fitness classes ranging from zumba to pilates.

Children have their own Grandeur Kids’ Club, with access to a clubhouse equipped with a child-friendly gym, water play area, pool and alfresco dining facilities. There is also a 70m adventure zone and an outdoor playground. The club privileges include complimentary guitar and violin lessons conducted by Mandeville Conservatory of Music.
A one-stop concierge service is offered for the residents as part of the Grandeur Club membership. Services include home cleaning, handyman and laundry to pet grooming. There is also a parcel self-collection station for the convenience of residents who shop online.
Residents can also book facilities and send requests to the condominium’s management team via the development’s Iplus app. The development has a wide range of amenities catering to all generations of family members. There is a family gym and fitness studio with space for yoga and other wellness lessons.

There is also an outdoor fitness pavilion equipped with the Omnia Fitness System for multiple users. Other facilities include a sensory spa, an ice therapy corner and a Himalayan salt room.
Amid lush greenery are the hilltop dining pavilions that offer picturesque views of the grounds, given its elevated site. The landscaped gardens include a chess lawn and a maze garden, while recreational facilities include a jamming studio, games room and theatre.
