With the announcement of The Avenir, excited buyers expect to see more updates within the next 6 months from developers. Due to the high anticipation of the condo launch, we’ve prepared a quick review for what you can expect below:
Location: The Avenir condo location looks to be a pretty attractive one. In River Valley, right on the edge of the Orchard Road shopping belt, and close to the business district of Raffles Place / Marina Bay / Shenton Way.
- Minutes to UE Square Shopping Mall and Liang Court
- 2-3 Minutes Drive to popular attractions (F&B outlets, lifestyle malls etc)
- 12 mins walk to Orchard Road
- Excellent connectivity and mature amenities and entertainment options
- Nightlife entertainment at Robertson Quay
Shops, F&B, Hotels, Banks, Supermarkets: . This part of River Valley is opposite Killiney Road (with the famous Killiney Coffeeshop), that leads to the Somerset section of Orchard Road.
The closest big shopping mall to walk to is actually Great World City, around 600m (or an 8 to 9-minute walk). Easily shop for your basic necessities here, including finding F&B options, shopping plus entertainment.
Note: Especially with the upcoming Great World MRT, residents of The Avenir will experience ultimate access and convenience, and within minutes by public transport to many important nodes on the island and CBD.
With just 12 minutes walk to Orchard Road, expect to find even busier sections of Singapore that features luxury shopping lifestyle.
Lifestyle: The Avenir location is within walking distance of Robertson Quay. This part of the Singapore River is a fascinating mix of the old and the new.
Here we have an eclectic jumble of pubs, bistros, cafes, art houses, mixed with fine dining restaurants & alfresco cafes. Many of them housed in refurbished conservation shophouses and warehouses, in delightful contrast against the sleek outlines of the new boutique hotels and hotels skirting the river.
This nightlife spot at the upper reaches of the Singapore River offers lots of pleasant places for a cosy dinner by the river, or a relaxed evening hanging out with friends. The yearly night F1 race is also in the vicinity.
A promenade runs by the river down to Clarke Quay and the CBD. So from the Avenir condo, more energetic residents can cycle or even walk to work.
Festivals and events are also great attractions in Orchard Road. If you live and stay in The Avenir, you are just a couple of street away from all the actions and fun! Some notable festivals and events include:
- Christmas on A Great Street – Soak in the joyous mood of the most celebrated festival with beautiful lightings and street art decorations.
- Music Festivals
- Sporting Events
Schools: The Avenir is ideal as it is located nearby top Singapore Schools, due to it being situated along Duenarn and River Valley Road.
Here’s some of the schools you expect to see:
- River Valley Primary School
- St Margaret Primary
- Catholic JC
- LASELLE College of Arts
- Eton House International School
Nearest MRT Station: The Avenir is 750m from Somerset MRT (roughly 10 minutes walk) on the North-South MRT Line. The new Great World MRT will be just minutes away!
When the Great World MRT station on the Thomson East Coast line starts operations in 2021, it presents a nearer connection point. The closest entrance to the station will be around 6 minutes walk away. As the Avenir is slated to complete after that, it should work out quite nicely for residents.
