Parksuites is a five-storey development with 119 apartments and 22 retail units on Holland Grove Road in prime District 10. Far East Organization did more than develop the project; it initiated a redesign and reconstruction of the public park, Henry Park, which fronts the development.
DP Architects has designed the project to integrate with the park seamlessly. The result is an intimate setting that fits the surrounding landed housing estates of Holland Grove and Mount Sinai. The project was completed earlier this year and won the Design Excellence Award for a mixed-use project at the EdgeProp Singapore Excellence Awards 2023.
The development has a post-modern industrial façade, and units come with semi-outdoor spaces like balconies and terraces to capitalise on the surrounding park views. Perforated screens at the balcony are provided for privacy and shading. Residents can therefore enjoy the greenery and tranquil atmosphere as an extension of their home.

The development sits on a land area of 101,023 sq ft with a 110-year lease from 2017. It has a wide variety of unit types. One-bedroom and one-bedroom-plus-study of 581 to 689 sq ft make up 38 units. Another 38 units comprise two-bedroom and two-bedroom-plus-study of 700 to 872 sq ft.
Double-storey, Soho-style, dual-key units make up another 38 units. These dual-key units are a mix of two- and three-bedders with sizes of 1,098 to 1,475 sq ft, and are on the fourth floor. The remaining five units are triplexes spanning the second to fourth floors. They are four-bedroom units with sizes from 2,885 to 3,068 sq ft.
All units come with high-end appliances, fittings and finishes, and smart-home features for each apartment. The units have been designed for functionality and flexibility, says the developer.

The 22 commercial shops on the ground floor provide convenience for residents of Parksuites and in the surrounding areas. There are F&B options, clinics, education centres and a supermarket.
“The development was well thought out in terms of its design and planning of the units,” says Yvonne Tan, director of DP Green and one of the judges this year. “The retail cluster was nicely done, and you have all the amenities there, including a doctor, a dentist and a vet.”
Integrating the grounds of Parksuites with the public park was also a move that scored well with the judges, adds Tan.

Despite its openness with the public park in front of the project, Parksuites has maintained its exclusivity, says Sky Seah, academic director and senior lecturer at NUS School of Real Estate and a judge on the panel this year.
Seah adds that the retail offerings at Parksuites are also an amenity for the residents and the community. “It complements the neighbourhood and makes it more vibrant.”

The project is close to Holland Village, Rochester Park, Dempsey Hill and the Orchard Road shopping district. Other amenities include Jelita Shopping Centre and Ghim Moh Market & Hawker Centre. Henry Park Primary School is just one street away, while Methodist Girls’ School, Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) and Raffles Girls’ Primary School are also nearby.
Based on caveats lodged, the latest transaction at Parksuites was in late July, when a 786 sq ft, two-bedroom-plus-study unit on the third level was sold for $2.07 million ($2,471 psf). Another similar-sized unit on the second level fetched $1.91 million ($2,434 psf) in May.
