CapitaLand will launch an integrated development consisting of residential apartments and serviced residences in the Orchard Road district to the public next month.
At 122 metres tall, it is set to become one of the tallest buildings in the area, and will be directly linked to Paragon via a covered link-bridge.
Located at Cairnhill Road, the 30-storey Cairnhill Nine is the first condominium to launch in the Orchard area in the last three years, and features 268 one, two and four-bedroom apartments and penthouses.
Unit sizes range from 591 sq ft to 3,864 sq ft, with prices starting from $1.35 million for a one-bedder, $2.49 million for a two-bedder, and $3.68 million for a four-bedder. The project’s average price of around $2,500 psf was benchmarked against neighbouring projects.
“Cairnhill Nine is targeted at young professionals, families and foreign buyers who enjoy living amidst the buzz of Singapore’s world-renowned shopping belt,” said Wen Khai Meng, CEO of CapitaLand Singapore.
“We have identified the profiles and lifestyle choices of potential buyers after conducting extensive research on the preferences of those seeking homes in the heart of Orchard Road.”
Last weekend, the property developer held a roadshow in Jakarta targeting Indonesians, as the Orchard area has traditionally been popular with this group of buyers, shared Wen.
Aside from premium finishings, quality fittings and built-in storage systems, the units will also incorporate smart home technologies.
“We will provide our home buyers a smart home starter kit which allows them to remotely control Internet-of-Things (IOT)-enabled home devices such as the air-conditioning system, digital lock with biometric access, and security camera,” noted Wen.
The 99-year leasehold project is close to the Orchard and Somerset MRT stations, as well as shopping malls, established schools and medical facilities. It is expected to be completed at the end of this year.
A VIP preview of Cairnhill Nine will be held at the project’s showflat at Indus Road this Saturday (27 Feb), while viewings by appointment will start next weekend.
Adjoined to Cairnhill Nine is the 20-storey Ascott Orchard Singapore. The serviced residence will feature 220 luxury apartments ranging from studios to two-bedroom units and penthouses. Scheduled to open early next year, the property will offer short- and long-term stays.
CapitaLand’s other integrated development in the vicinity, ION Orchard shopping mall and The Orchard Residences condominium, was completed in phases from 2009. During the launch of the first phase, 98 of the 175 residential units were sold for an average of $3,213 psf.
