Situated at Bukit Batok Street 41, Le Quest is a mixed-use development that aims to provide a seamless way of living. Developed by the local unit of Chinese builders Qingjian Realty, the 99-year leasehold project received its temporary occupation permit last year. It comprises 516 residential units which have been fully sold as well as retail component Le Quest Mall. The residential units are spread across five blocks, with units ranging from studios to one- to four-bedroom apartments spanning between 431 sq ft and 1,528 sq ft in size.
Le Quest saw strong demand following its launch in 2017, with more than half of its 516 units snapped up during the first weekend of launch. A key factor for the robust response was the hybrid nature of the development with the integration of Le Quest Mall.
Besides ensuring buyers convenient access to eateries and amenities, Le Quest is also Bukit Batok’s first mixed-use development, and the second shopping mall in Bukit Batok other than the 22-year-old West Mall, serving households within the Bukit Batok West and upcoming Tengah estate areas.

Today, Le Quest Mall — which has a gross floor area of 64,584 sq ft — is home to key tenants such as FairPrice Finest supermarket, Koufu food court, a Guardian pharmacy as well as fast food chain mainstays McDonald’s, KFC and Pizza Hut. The mall also services the wider Bukit Batok community, being only the second shopping mall in the vicinity after West Mall, which is located at Bukit Batok Central Link. In August, Le Quest Mall was sold to private equity real estate investment firm Firmus Capital.
Smart living features
Smart living is a core feature of Le Quest and Qingjian Realty is striving to provide a one-stop solution that allows residents to control various features of their homes with the press of a button on their mobile phones.
For example, all residential units at Le Quest are integrated with a digital front door lock and smart doorbell that has remote camera access. A centralised app allows owners to check the status of their front door, as well as lock or unlock it remotely. They will also be able to view a live feed of anyone at their front door, even while they are not at home. Air-conditioning units also incorporate a smart feature for pre-cooling the house so it has perfect temperature upon arrival.

These smart features also provide a hassle-free experience for visitors. Residents can inform security of visitors through the app, allowing for faster entry and bypassing lengthy sign-in procedures. There is also handy Wi-Fi access available in all communal areas of the development.

The vast array of smart and lifestyle features has garnered Le Quest the Innovation Excellence Award in the Completed residential project, Non-Central Region category at this year’s EdgeProp Excellence Awards (EPEA). “The innovative one-touch convenience of being able to access everything in the home offered by the mobile app was impressive,” says Ong Choon Fah, board member of Edmund Tie Holdings, and one of five judges for EPEA 2021.
She also highlights the user-centric virtual concierge as a standout feature. Through the app, residents can access a comprehensive suite of services which include booking facilities and paying maintenance fees, as well engaging services such as air-conditioning maintenance, house cleaning, catering and event planning.

The app has also been harnessed for community and recreational activities. Besides using it to sign up for fitness classes such as Zumba or Pilates, residents can also learn new skills by engaging instructors for swimming, tennis or cooking and baking lessons.

Advantageous location
Beyond the technologically-driven offerings, there are also over 30 facilities available at Le Quest for residents to use. This includes a 50m lap pool, a kids’ pool, a gym, a tennis court as well as barbecue and alfresco dining areas. There are also plenty of serene spaces for residents to unwind, including a maze garden and garden trail. A childcare centre is also available at the development, meaning parents living at Le Quest can easily drop off and pick up their kids during the week without worrying about the commute.

Le Quest’s advantageous location sets it up for further growth potential. It is close to Jurong Gateway, the upcoming commercial hub for the Jurong Lake District. The upcoming Tengah Park MRT Station, located on the Jurong Region Line, will also be located nearby. It will connect commuters to key areas in Jurong, like the Jurong Industrial Estate, Jurong Innovation District and the Nanyang Technological University (NTU). The station will open by 2028.
