SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - The Woodleigh Residences, located on Bidadari Park Drive in District 13, is developed by a 50:50 joint venture between Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) and Japanese property developer Kajima Development.
Launched in May this year, the 99-year leasehold development comprises 667 residential units, and is part of an integrated development with The Woodleigh Mall, the Woodleigh MRT Station on the North-East Line, and also Singapore’s first underground bus interchange station.
In addition, a 64,583 sq ft Community Club and a 23,573 sq ft Neighbourhood Police Centre will be included as part of the integrated development. This is done in collaboration with the People’s Association and the Singapore Police Force respectively.
Dubbed the “Jewel of the Bidadari Estate Master Plan”, The Woodleigh Residences is described by the developer as “Singapore’s only premium integrated development built with Japanese craftsmanship,” with a “nature-inspired” concept.
On Oct 18, The Woodleigh Residences won the Sustainability Excellence award at the EdgeProp Singapore Excellence Awards 2019.

According to the HDB’s masterplan for the Bidadari Estate, most of the flats in the adjacent plots have predominantly a north-south orientation. However, DP Architects, as the design architect for The Woodleigh Residences, deviated from this norm.
Instead, the development takes on an east-facing, U-shaped configuration, which overlooks the picturesque Bidadari Park and Alkaff Lake across Bidadari Park Drive. More than three-quarters of the residential units are facing Bidadari Park and Alkaff Lake, and have unobstructed views from the third level.
More prominent is a Green Bridge – an overhead bridge across Bidadari Park Drive that sits atop Bidadari Park – where residents can exclusively enjoy the indoor onsen. The development is also next to the Heritage Walk, which is lined by conserved raintrees.
