Gem Residences. The latest upcoming launch in Toa Payoh. Minutes to city area. Three MRT stops to Orchard Road.
Living at Gem Residences means comfort in a house fitted with thoughtful design, carrying the age-old refinery of world-class brands like SMEG and Hansgrohe. Multiple facilities, from outdoor teppanyaki, grill pavilions, spacious clubhouse with cooking facilities, 50m swimming pool to unparalleled views from rooftop spaces, cater for every facet of living. Being in one of Singapore’s most mature estates also means that the best hawker food and daily essentials are within easy reach. Even if you need to step out, the 12,154 sqm development at Toa Payoh Lorong 5 is just minutes’ drive from the city’s prime shopping belt and walking distance from two MRT stations.
We make it even better by integrating concierge services seamlessly into the everyday. With access to international priority bookings and personalized requests for all occasions, the world is at your fingertips. This is the pleasure of being home: a triadic luxury of facilities, activities and on-demand concierge services coming together for a definitive new experience – where one has the time to enjoy the precious things in life.
Gem Residences was designed to be complementary to the larger estate and its historical roots, with an ambition to be a home of the future. The design thus infuses the traditional into contemporary by its juxtaposition of sleek curtain walls with traditional solid panels, and layering of intricate motif screens against simple base elements. The urban fabric of Toa Payoh estate comprises older slab blocks with modern towers. Gem Residences, with its twin towers, adds another rich layer to the current urban fabric through a unique reinterpretation of a contemporary design with links to its past.
How connected is Toa Payoh, really? Besides being a 20-minute drive away from CBD, a mere three train stops from the Orchard shopping belt and close to recreational areas like MacRitchie Reservoir, the town also boasts well-established public transport nodes. Just minutes away is a library, a 3900-seat stadium, swimming complex, gymnasium, and a vibrant mix of modern and traditional stores. And of course, the relatively small size of the town means that it is almost too easy to get to the many famous hawker and cafe joints dotted along the lorongs. And the town is still spotlighted for upgrading under the Housing and Development Board’s (HDB) Remaking Our Heartland programme, which will see a revamped town centre and town park, along with improved pedestrian access to the town centre. It will also benefit from the new Thomson East Coast Line (TEL), which adds 31 stations in stages from 2019 onwards.
