One Tree Hill Collection, a development comprising 14 houses by Singapore- listed construction and property group Lum Chang Holdings, is scheduled for launch soon.
It is not just any landed housing project, however. “Located right smack in prime District 10, in the vicinity of luxury residences such as The Marq on Paterson Hill, The Colonnade and Cliveden at Grange, One Tree Hill is a highly desirable estate,” says Peter Ow, director of property at Lum Chang Holdings. “It’s accessible from Grange Road, Paterson Road and Orchard Boulevard.”
Lum Chang therefore decided to develop a luxurious development befitting its prestigious address. K2LD Architects was selected to design the houses at One Tree Hill Collection. “K2LD has a track record for designing luxury houses, especially Good Class Bungalows,” says Ow. “That’s why we chose them.”

When it came to the interiors, Lum Chang gave the job to Peter Tay, who won the Designer of the Year Award at the President’s Design Awards 2014. He has also been dubbed “celebrity interior designer to the stars”, having designed the homes of stars such as Zhang Ziyi, Wang Leehom, Stephanie Sun and Zoe Tay.

Luxury houses in prime estate

One Tree Hill Collection occupies a freehold site of 39,063 sq ft at the junction of Jalan Arnap and One Tree Hill. The site is a redevelopment of the former One Tree Hill Gardens that Lum Chang purchased en bloc in May last year for $65 million. “That started the ball rolling in the recent collective sale wave,” recounts Ow.
The last residential project undertaken by Lum Chang in Singapore was a decade ago, when it developed several Good Class Bungalows on Swettenham Road. Besides One Tree Hill Collection, Lum Chang is in the midst of redeveloping the former The Verge in Little India, which it acquired for $190 million last year in a joint venture with a fund under LaSalle Investment Management. The new project, renamed Tekka Place, will be repositioned as a new retail and lifestyle complex, with Lum Chang handling the construction.
