WHEN Qingjian Group bought the Shunfu Ville en bloc in 2016, it marked the first purchase of a collective sale site in Singapore by the Hong Kong-listed construction and real estate player. Qingjian was ahead of the collective sale wave that took off last year.
The new, well-located and much-anticipated project to be built on the former Shunfu Ville private HUDC estate is called JadeScape, and is the largest residential project in Qingjian’s Singapore portfolio so far. The project has 1,206 residential units sitting on a 398,114 sq ft plot. The project is designed by award-winning architectural firm Tange Associates, which is headed by celebrated Harvard-trained Paul Tange, son of the legendary Kenzo Tange, who founded Kenzo Tange Studios in 1946.

Recent projects in Singapore designed by Tange Associates include mixed-use retail and office complex Orchard Gateway, which features the first pedestrian overhead bridge across prime Orchard Road; The Rochester, a mixeduse development with residential units and a mall at one-north; and One Raffles Place Tower 2, which was completed in 2012 and is situated adjacent to the first tower, One Raffles Place (formerly known as OUB Centre) — designed by Kenzo Tange in 1986.
JadeScape will also be the biggest residential project designed by Tange Associates in Singapore.
JadeScape will capitalise on the prime site in the much-sought-after Thomson area. The project fronts Marymount Road on one side and Shunfu Road on the other. It is within a three-minute walk of Marymount MRT station on the Circle Line. The Bishan MRT Interchange station for the Circle and North South Lines is just one stop away. Meanwhile, the future Upper Thomson MRT station on the Thomson-East Coast Line is just a seven-minute walk from JadeScape and is scheduled for completion in 2020.
Residents of JadeScape will be well connected to the major expressways, CTE and PIE, making the journey to and from the CBD a seamless one. In addition, the 21.5km North-South Corridor, now under construction, will significantly reduce travel time between the CBD and the northeast region. The North-South Corridor will contain integrated transport corridors, including express bus and cycling trunk routes that link the towns in the northeast region to the city centre.
JadeScape is therefore the most highly anticipated new launch of a city-fringe or Rest of Central Region (RCR) project in 2018. Besides public transport and expressway connectivity, amenities in the neighbourhood include Thomson Plaza mall with a large FairPrice Finest supermarket; Junction 8 retail- entertainment-F&B mall in Bishan (just one MRT stop away); AMK Hub in Ang Mo Kio (two MRT stops away); and HDB Hub in Toa Payoh (three MRT stops away).

Residents of JadeScape will have plenty of choices when it comes to food. At the Shunfu Mart and Food Centre, which is more than 20 years old — famous stalls include the muffins at Chocolat N Spice, Leong Hainanese Chicken Rice and Heng Heng Bao Bing popiah. Other well-known eateries in the Shunfu Thomson area include the Sin Ming Roti Prata, Casuarina Curry Restaurant and Sushiro Japanese restaurant.
Families with children will have a choice of many top schools, such as Ai Tong Primary School, Catholic High School and Raffles Institution.
For recreational activities and nature trails, MacRitchie Reservoir Park and Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park are nearby.
The seven residential blocks of 23 storeys each at JadeScape are oriented such that the majority of the units will enjoy unobstructed panoramic views of the MacRitchie Reservoir Park.
Residents of JadeScape can expect to move into the new condominium in 2023. Given that Qingjian purchased the site before the collective sale fever drove up prices of residential projects, buyers at JadeScape can look forward to attractive prices.
