EDGEPROP (SINGAPORE) - In July last year, Allgreen Properties and Kerry Properties launched the 487-unit Pasir Ris 8, a 99-year leasehold private condo that is part of an integrated development located in the eastern region of Singapore. To date, about 94% of the units have been taken up. The median price of Pasir Ris 8, which was at $1,623 psf a year ago, has risen 14.1% to $1,852 psf over the three months from July to September.
Pasir Ris 8 has seven residential blocks sitting on top of a three-storey podium. The first two levels are the retail mall fronting a town plaza. The mall includes eateries, shops, a supermarket, a childcare centre and a polyclinic. The third level houses the carpark. On top of the carpark is the landscaped deck and residents’ facilities. The residential units of the seven blocks, therefore, start from the 4th floor to the 11th floor.

The integrated development is directly connected to an air-conditioned bus interchange and Pasir Ris MRT Station, slated to become an interchange for both the East-West and Cross Island Lines. Pasir Ris 8 has won three awards, namely Landscape Design Excellence, Sustainability Excellence and Top Development at this year’s EdgeProp Excellence Awards.

Allgreen and Kerry Properties won the 400,000 sq ft white site at Pasir Ris 8 for close to $700 million ($685 psf per plot ratio or psf ppr) in March 2019. It marked the first collaboration between the two entities which are part of The Kuok Group of companies, controlled by Rob- ert Kuok, the richest man in Malaysia with a net worth of US$11 billion ($15.78 billion) according to Forbes 2022.

Sustainability Excellence

Pasir Ris 8 is not the first integrated development that Allgreen has been involved in. Allgreen’s flagship development in Singapore is Great World City, an integrated development with a 35-storey, 304-unit serviced apartment block, an 18-storey office tower and a six-storey mall.
The mall underwent asset enhancements in 2018, with the first phase completed in 2019, and the second phase in 2Q2020. The mall also has a direct connection to Great World MRT station on the Thomson-East Coast Line which is scheduled to open on Nov 13.
Allgreen has close to four decades’ experience in developing and managing a diverse real estate portfolio, from residential, serviced apartments, retail, office, hospitality (Shangri-La and Jen hotels) and mixed-use developments. With its wealth of experience in managing shopping malls in Singapore’s prime districts — Great World City in River Valley and Tanglin Mall in the prime Orchard-Tanglin Road area — Allgreen will be managing the upcoming mall at Pasir Ris too.

‘Community focal point’

The new Pasir Ris Mall will have a total net lettable area (NLA) of 250,000 sq ft. It will not be the only mall linked to the Pasir Ris MRT Station. A mall that has been there for the last 25 years is the 128,631 sq ft White Sands, which is also connected to the MRT station. Nearby is a family- and youth-oriented leisure and entertainment hub, the 1.58 million sq ft Downtown East man- aged by NTUC club, which includes the Wild Wild Wet water park and Escape Theme Park.
Pasir Ris 8 will play “a pivotal role” in the “Remaking our Heartland” initiative and serve as a community focal point for Pasir Ris Town, according to HDB. The town plaza is connected directly to a central greenway with pedestrian paths and bicycle trails leading to Pasir Ris Beach and Pasir Ris Park located less than 10 minutes away.

Beyond its location and the convenience of an integrated development, Pasir Ris has an auspicious address too: 8 Pasir Ris Drive 8. Allgreen has also paid attention to the residents’ amenities and interiors of the residential units. The design architect of Pasir Ris 8 is DCA Architects with SHMA Company as the landscape consultant.

Besides the kids’ play area, clubhouse and 50m swimming pool, there are also pockets of landscaped zones called “dunes” with gardens and recreational facilities. There are quiet corners for reading, yoga and even urban farming as well as function rooms with gourmet kitchen facilities for those who want to hold events and parties.
Catering to the hybrid work culture, the common areas and the clubhouse of Pasir Ris 8 will have free Wifi network. The clubhouse lounge is designed with co-working pods for people to plug in and work. A self-serve pantry will be installed to provide coffee and tea. Some of the outdoor pavilions will be fitted with comfortable chairs and ceiling fans to create a tranquil, resort ambience that is conducive to work as well as relaxation.
Yvonne Tan, director of DP Green and part of a panel of judges for EdgeProp Singapore Excellence Awards, is pleased to see developments like Pasir Ris 8 focus on biodiversity, even as they create landscaped spaces for residents to enjoy or work in. “It helps promote the health and well-being of residents,” she adds.

‘Greater flexibility of space use’

“We anticipated that more people will be working from home post-Covid and will require more space,” said Allgreen CEO Lee Yew Kwung, when the project was launched last year.
Recognising the desire for “greater flexibility of space use” within the home, Allgreen engaged SuMisura to design the interiors of the one- and two-bedroom units and Cynosure to design the interiors of the three-bedroom units. Units come with a built-in cabinet for storing umbrellas and for parcel delivery at the entrance. Three- and four-bedroom units have a flexible room with dual access — from the kitchen and the living room. It is ideal as a helper’s room, a utility room or a study. The master bedroom comes with a walk-in wardrobe that doubles as a dressing room adjoining the master bathroom.

According to Angela Lim, director and co-founder of SuMisura, two-bedroom units come with a swivel-out table with attached stools that can either be used as a workspace or a dining table for five. Concealed storage space outside the common bathroom comes equipped with an ironing board. Meanwhile, one-bedroom units are fitted with a sliding door panel to separate the living room from the master bedroom for privacy. For the showflat, SuMIsura also incorporated a swivel TV cabinet that allows the owner the flexibility of watching TV either in the bedroom or living room.

The master bedroom will be provided with a flip-top dressing table that doubles as a workstation. The kitchen is fitted with a pull-out table too. Even the balconies of the apartments have been designed to allow residents to work from there.
Pasir Ris 8 has a wide range of unit types. One-bedroom units start from 517 sq ft; two-bedroom units from 710 sq ft; three-bedroom units from 1,023 sq ft; and four-bedroom premium units from 1,464 sq ft.
“Allgreen Properties has a legacy of developing quality projects and integrated developments,” says Koh Choon Fah, who is part of the EdgeProp Singapore Excellence Awards for the fifth year running. “They are continuing that legacy and have demonstrated their ability to innovate.”
