Latest Update 13 July 2013
This project is named The Glades at Tanah Merah. Please click the link for latest information – this post will no longer be updated.
Tanah Merah’s latest condo development by Keppel Land next to the Tanah Merah MRT is now pending approval for sale. The land has been cleared and construction on the showflat has begun.
Located at the junction between New Upper Changi Road and Bedok Road (official address is New Upper Changi Road), the 343,171 sq ft site (with a GFA of 549,078 sq ft) was bought by Keppel Land in October last year.
The site, according to URA, has a plot ratio of 1.6, making it the site with the lowest plot ratio in the vicinity (other condo sites, such as Urban Vista, range from 2.1 to 2.8 in plot ratio).
Combined with the larger land area, this new condo would be potentially less densely built than its neighbours.
When constructed, the condo will be less than 5 minutes’ walk to Tanah Merah MRT Interchange, with direct trains to the Expo/Changi Business Park, Changi Airport, and CBD (Raffles Place and Tanjong Pagar).
It will be close to reputable schools such as Anglican High School, Temasek Junior College, and the upcoming Singapore University of Technology and Design.
A commercial hub is also in the works just across the road (on the other side of Tanah Merah MRT station), and will provide convenient shopping and dining options.
I will be posting further updates on this as the development progresses. Please leave a comment if you have any questions or contact me if you would like to be kept updated.
