The GuocoLand Limited Group unveiled preliminary details of its latest luxury residential condominium project, Martin Modern in District 9, which is targeted for launch in the second half of 2017.
Martin Modern is located at the corner of Martin Place and River Valley Close, within the posh residential neighbourhood of Robertson Quay. Over 80% of land area set aside for a beautiful botanic garden Martin Modern comes on the back of the successful launch of GuocoLand’s luxury residential projects of Goodwood Residence and Leedon Residence. Goodwood Residence is sold out while Leedon Residence is close to 90% sold.
GuocoLand Singapore’s Group Managing Director Cheng Hsing Yao said, “In land-scarce Singapore, space in a prime location is the ultimate luxury. It is extremely rare to find a large lush site in prime District 9, within the posh Robertson Quay neighbourhood. This place gives us the opportunity to create our luxury resort-home concept, as seen in Goodwood Residence and Leedon Residence.”
At Martin Modern, over 80% of the land area will be turned into a unique botanic garden and an arboretum of native trees and vegetation. The garden will have 15 different spaces with various concepts like a party lawn, a forest trail, rain gardens and a maze among others. This unforgettable gardenscape is spread over three levels because the site has a 10-metre upward slope from one end to the other.
In addition, residents will get to enjoy two rooftop gardens. There will be more than 200 species of plants and more than 50 species of trees and palms, including native ones like the jelutong, meranti and chengal. A rare majestic tree with distinct buttress roots that used to be found on site, the ficus variegata that can grow to a height of 30m when matured, will be re-introduced into the condominium project.
Mr Cheng added, “Martin Modern is in the heart of the city but the moment you cross the main gate, past the mystical driveway to the arrival porch, you will be transported into a tranquil and enchanted garden.”
The project will have 450 units, all of which come with a view of the gardens, the city or the Singapore River. Each unit is designed with the occupier in mind, with well-proportioned and functional spaces, and very high quality finishes and fittings.
Besides its expansive garden concept, Martin Modern will also have bespoke recreational facilities and GuocoLand’s concierge services. The overall feel will be that of a plush and relaxed resort within the city centre.
