What makes the condo stand apart from the rest
 - EDGEPROP SINGAPORE
Stars of Kovan, the latest property of leading Hong Kong giant Cheung Kong Property Holdings, is set to turn a once-rustic neighbourhood into a trendy one.
Cheung Kong is renowned in Singapore as a de­veloper of upscale residential developments. Past projects include Cairnhill Crest in prime District 9, Costal del Sol in East Coast, The Vision in West Coast and Thomson Grand in the Upper Thom­son area, which was completed recently. Land­mark developments in which Cheung Kong was part of a consortium of developers are the multi­billion-dollar Suntec City, Marina Bay Financial Centre and One Raffles Quay.
When completed, Stars of Kovan will have 46 commercial units on the street level with prom­inent street frontage along Tampines Road and Upper Serangoon Road. Four 17-storey condo­minium blocks with a total of 390 units will sit atop the commercial floor; and adjacent to it will be five strata terrace units.
One of the most prominent projects launched this year, Stars of Kovan offers the best of the best in terms of address, quality living and unob­structed views.

HOT LOCATION
Being a resident of Stars of Kovan means living in close proximity to amenities. The Kovan MRT station and Heartland Mall are within walking distance. One of the biggest suburban shopping malls, NEX, is just one stop away at the Seran­goon Interchange, which is linked to the Circle Line and North East Line. Just four MRT stops away is the Punggol Waterway Point, another brand new shopping mall that opened earlier this year.
Just off Upper Serangoon Road is an eclectic mix of eateries – hipster café Sunday Market, the famous Bee Kee Wonton Noodles with truffle oil, popular Thai restaurant Nakhon Kitchen, Soon Soon teochew porridge and Punggol Nasi Le­mak. For those who want something more rustic, there’s the famous Kovan Hougang Market and Food Centre.
The Kovan area also has easy access to the CBD and Marina Bay as well as the rest of the is­land via four expressways – the Central Express­way, Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway and Tamp­ines Expressway.

“LIVEABLE LUXURY”
Stars of Kovan is designed for those who appre­ciate suburban living at its best – with a touch of glamour. The units are designed with high-spec­ification European brands. Kitchens are fully equipped with Smeg appliances, master bath­rooms are full marble, and bathrooms feature top-end sanitaryware and accessories by Duravit, Hansgrohe and Kohler. The project is expected to set a new benchmark in the neighbourhood in terms of luxury finishing and fittings.
Unit sizes are generous to meet the needs of aspiring homeowners, with a mix of one- to three-bedroom apartments sized from 506 sq ft to 1,023 sq ft. The most popular units among homebuyers are the two-bedders of 732 sq ft to 807 sq ft.

BREATH-TAKING VIEWS
The Kovan area is an idyllic neighbourhood with predominantly landed homes. Stars of Kovan is set to be the new landmark in the estate five years from now. With its striking façade and state-of-the-art lighting design, the development will also light up the night sky. It is designed by Team Design Architects, which was also involved in Cheung Kong’s two earlier projects: Costa del Sol and The Vision.
As Stars of Kovan is one of the few high-rise blocks in the area, at least 80% of its residents will be able to enjoy panoramic views from their homes.
