Also, a sneak peek of the design, as seen in the City Developments 1st Half 2016 Analyst Report.
Sneak Peak of the Forest Wood Condominium Design
Forest Woods condo will be set out in 7 blocks of 12 storeys. As seen from the artist’s impression, it displays the strengths of a typical Hong Leong / CDL design: towers separated from the roads by greenery, an eye-catching clubhouse and 24-hour gym, and lovely landscaping.

The Woods Square condo unit mix bears further testimony to the wealth of experience that CDL / Hong Leong has in developing residential projects, and it’s ability to read the requirements of the local market very well.
It is a good spread, not too over or under-supplied in any particular type. However, if the most recent launch, at Lake Grande, is any gauge of current buyer demand, then the 1 bedroom + study, and possibly the 2 bedroom units, could do well on the launch day itself.
The Upper Serangoon / Paya Lebar area is also very much an owner occupied area, so the 3 and 4 bedroom units could garner good demand at the launch too.

FLORENCE RESIDENCES CONDO @ HOUGANG
Now that Forest Woods is on the point of selling out, and in fact has sold out all its smaller and mid-size units, it’s time to turn our attention to other new projects that are launching for sale soon. There are two – Florence Residences and Mayfair Gardens, both different types of condominium project from Forest Woods.
For a start, they are in different locations. The Mayfair Gardens condo is located in a much more upscale neighbourhood, at Bukit Timah along Dunearn Road. This is an exclusively private residential estate without a single HDB flat in sight, as the land around here is just too costly. Bukit Timah is by-word for being one of the most high-end residential neighbourhoods, and especially for its brand name educational institutions.
Whereas the Florence Residences condo is actually not too far away from Forest Woods. In fact they share the same MRT line, the North-East Line, a mere couple of stations apart, and both are in District 19.
Around the Mayfair Gardens condo location, are also a number of international schools, such as the Singapore Korean International School, the Swiss School in Singapore, the Hollandse School, and the German European School. It is also within walking distance of Methodist Girls’ School across the road at Blackmore Drive, the Pei Hwa Presbyterian Primary School, and Ngee Ann Polytechnic.
Whereas around Florence Residences, within walking distance actually, is Holy Innocents Primary School. This is a SAP school, and probably among the most sought after in the North East of Singapore, apart from Nan Chiau Primary.
Apart from that, Mayfair Gardens is a charming low-rise development, 5 storeys high. It numbers just 215 units ranging from one bedders, to 4 bedroom apartments, and 6 penthouses. The design is inspired by Mayfair Gardens in London, but is a modern take on the style, with a very attractive looking end result.
Mayfair Gardens is just one half of the Mayfair Collection. Next door to it is its sister project, to be called the Mayfair Modern condo, that will only be launching later. If you are interested to view the showflat just behind the King Albert Park MRT station, just drop us a line and we will be glad to send you the floor plans.
