This is my review on Parc Clematis, 99-year leasehold condominium located in the Clementi area (former Park West). Developer price is available upon request and will be released only on balloting day. Location of showflat is along Jalan Lempeng.
Parc Clematis – 99-year leasehold development consisting of nine 24-storey tower blocks residential apartment development, 6 units of 2 storey strata bungalow and 12 units of 2 storey strata terrace (total 1468 residential units). This project is close to Clementi MRT which is just a few minutes walk via a sheltered walkway. Parc Clematis is the result of collective sale enbloc of former Park West by SingHaiyi Gold Pte Ltd, a 50:50 joint venture between SingHaiyi Group’s wholly-owned unit SingHaiyi Land and Haiyi Wealth Pte Ltd for $840.89 million which translate to $850 per sq ft per plot ratio.

Location and Surroundings:
Besides the close proximity to Clementi MRT station, there are many amenities surrounding Parc Clematis such as Clementi Mall, 321 Clementi, City Vibe and Clementi Market.
From Primary to University – The most sought-after factor for Parc Clematis would be the proximity to plenty of schools and higher educational institutes. Families with young children can enjoy going to school, with no hassle of travelling long distances. This convenience does not stop as tertiary institutes and universities are also not too far away. I think this will be appealing to parents as they do not need to worry about arranging transportation or getting up earlier than usual to send their kids to school. Park Clematis is close to several good schools which is within 1km such as Nan Hua Primary School, which is ranked 25th in Singapore.
The list of schools nearby include:
- Peitong Primary
- Qi Fa Primary
- Clementi Primary
- Nan Hua Primary

Future of Jurong district:
Many investors are drawn to new projects in the west because of the potential upside of Jurong lake district, being the 2nd CBD in future. The close proximity to Future High-Speed Rail Terminus which connects Singapore to Kuala Lumpur within 90 minutes, also is one of the reasons why buyers are suddenly attracted to this location. A new Jurong Innovation District (JID), envisioned as the industrial park of the future will be built as part of the Government’s push to encourage more innovation.

Alright, so this is what sets Parc Clematis apart from all other condos in Clementi, it is massive in size! It spans over 630,000sqft with awesome facilities such as a beach pool, community garden, Japanese Pavillion, camping garden with a pet lawn, a greenhouse and many more. I love that about 2/3 of the site is planned for facilities so that residents of Parc Clematis can really take in all the pleasure of living in a condo with a legit condo lifestyle. Check out the flythrough video to see what I’m talking about!
Parc Clematis is generally north-south oriented which means there is little direct afternoon sun coming in from balcony and bedroom windows. However, the noise from AYE expressway can be quite disconcerting as the noise from motor vehicles reverberate around the southern side of the estate.
Here are my suggestions on which units are the best based on the different unit types and number of bedrooms.
For 1-bedroom, I suggest stack 26,27,28. There is no pool facing 1-bedroom units and most of them are facing the AYE expressway. These units I have chosen is furthest from the main artery of the expressway so it would be less noisy.
For the 2-bedroom unit type, I would recommend stack 40,41,18,19. They are main pool-facing units and further from the AYE expressway as compared to other main-pool facing 2-bedroom units.
looking for 3-bedroom unit type? I would recommend stack either 39 or 13. 39 faces the main pool but if you are the type who prefers a quieter environment. Units in stack 13 offer unblock view of low rise landed housing and is not close to the expressway.
In my humble opinion, this is a crowning jewel of the west as it is the newest project to date nearest to Clementi MRT. It is also a ridiculously huge development build by a veteran developer with a reputable track record. I love that 2/3 of the site is planned for facilities so that residents of Parc Clematis can really take in all the pleasure of living in a condo with a legit condo lifestyle
Value for money: ⭐⭐⭐⭐4/5
