Exciting urban renewal underway in Lavender and beyond

Featuring a plethora of ethnic eateries and cafes operating out of colourful shophouses, an eclectic blend of heritage sites with modern developments, Lavender is a delightful neighbourhood that blends the quaint charm of yesteryear with the dynamic pulse of the city.

The district is bounded by Tessensohn Road in the north, Balestier Road, Lavender Street and Crawford Street in the east, the Rochor River and Rochor Canal in the south, as well as Syed Alwi Road, Serangoon Road and Rangoon Road in the west.

Enjoying a strategic location at the city fringe, the subject property is within walking distance from Bendemeer MRT station, and it is also a short drive to the Central Business District (CBD) and Orchard Road. Prominent landmarks in the immediately vicinity include CT Hub, Aperia Mall, Mustafa Centre, City Square Mall and the Jalan Besar Stadium and Swimming Complex.

Supported by a mature road network, the property enjoys excellent connectivity to other parts of Singapore via Pan Island Expressway (PIE) and Central Expressway (CTE).

The Lavender and Jalan Besar precincts have undergone exciting rejuvenation with the addition of new commercial developments such as ARC 380 and Centrium Square. The upcoming completion of nearby residential estates such as Kempas Residences and Towner Crest will also contribute to higher footfall and buzz in the area. In recent years, the area has become a hotspot for lifestyle amenities, hotels, hostels, eateries and cafes.

The region will also benefit from developments on-going at the nearby Kallang River. Plans are underway to develop Kampong Bugis and transform the existing Kallang Industrial Estate into a vibrant mixed-use waterfront precinct. The area is expected to house 4,000 private homes and 50,000 sq m of retail, office and community facilities spread over a sprawling site spanning 14 football fields. This will fast-track the transformation of the neighbourhood and nearby areas into an exuberant cosmopolitan township of the future which experience-focused and fun-oriented residents can call home.

EDMUND TIE is marketing shophouses at 296 to 308 Lavender Street (even-numbered lots only), and is offering the seven adjoining units of shophouses for sale via an expression of interest exercise.
