IRWELL HILL LOCATION
Irwell Hill Location
Location! Location! Location! Without a doubt, location matters and it is one of the top criteria to look out for when buying a residence for your own stay or investment property. With the launch of the brand new development by City Development Limited, let’s take a closer look at the Irwell Hill Location!
Though Singapore is a small island, the residential areas are systematically divided into 3 major regions namely the Core Central Region, the Rest of Central Region, and the Outside Central Region. Each of these regions covers numerous locations. The Core Central Region, also known as CCR for short, comprises of Downtown Core Planning Area which includes parts of respective districts such as District 1 which features Boat Quay, Raffles Place, Marina Downtown and Suntec City, Shenton Way, and Tanjong Pagar in District 2, Sentosa in District 4, City Hall in District 6 and Bugis in District 7.
In addition to all these places in the city, Core Central Region also includes District 9, 10, and 11. These 3 Districts are commonly known as the prime residential districts in Singapore and Irwell Hill Location is strategically located in District 9.
3 Minutes Drive to Orchard Road
The 3 prime districts in Core Central Region are not located in the Central Business District. However, they are located within very close proximity to the business and financial districts and many renowned sites in Singapore. The Irwell Hill Location is under District 9 which also includes Orchard, Somerset, and River Valley. For both locals and tourists, Orchard Road is the number one shopping belt in Singapore. Lined with major retail stores such as ION Orchard, Wisma Atria, Paragon, Ngee Ann City, 313@Somerset, and Orchard Gateway, this famous retail enclave is only 5 minutes drive or a 15 minutes walk from Irwell Hill Location.
Besides being renown for Orchard Road, District 9 is also well known to business travelers worldwide and tourists as it is home to many top hotels such as St Regis, Four Seasons, Marriott, Grand Hyatt, Hilton, Mandarin Orchard, and many others. Furthermore, many embassies are located close to the Irwell Hill Location. For instance, the American Embassy and the Australian High Commission are both located at Napier Road which is about 5 minutes drive from Irwell Hills Residences via Grange Road.
Similarly, the Chinese Embassy and the British High Commission which are both located along Tanglin Road are also about a 5-minutes drive from Irwell Hill Residences. Therefore, it is not surprising that many foreign investors are very familiar with District 9 and are very much in tune with the investment potential of the Irwell Hill Location.
URA Plans Green Oasis From Orchard Road To Singapore River
As part of the major plans to transform Orchard Road into a vibrant lifestyle destination with lush natural surroundings, National Parks Board (Nparks) and URA have unveiled plans in February 2020 to form a 6 kilometers green linkway, connecting Orchard Road and major landmarks such as Singapore Botanic Gardens, Istana, Fort Canning Park, and Singapore River. When completed, Orchard Road will no longer be just a street lined with buildings. It will offer an enhanced experience for visitors as they can now enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings and family-friendly facilities outside the malls and retail shops.
As Irwell Hill Location is only 5 minutes drive from this urban oasis, residents can look forward to a vibrant and attractive neighborhood for their own enjoyment or also a potential upside for their investment! It is truly commendable that URA is constantly looking for ways to renew and refresh the landmarks in Singapore, enhancing their appeal, offering unique experiences, and drawing an increasing number of visitors year after year. As such the value of property in District 9 and Core Central Region has been enjoying very healthy growth over the decades.
Transformation At District 9
District 9 where Irwell Hill Location is sited, comprises various sub-precincts such as Tanglin, Orchard, Somerset, Dhoby Gaut, and River Valley. Besides Orchard Road, which is Singapore’s signature retail district, the sub-precincts around Orchard Road are also undergoing major transformation and rejuvenation.
For starters, the present Istana Park will be expanded to an area thrice its current size of 1.3 hectares. According to URA, the park will be integrated with Dhoby Ghaut Green, an urban park adjacent to Dhoby Ghaut MRT, and Penang Road Open Space which is located at the confluence of Penang Road and Oxley Road. From Istana Park, visitors can seamlessly transit to Fort Canning Park via a linkway at 9 Penang Road.
With the integration of these famous natural landmarks, residents at Irwell Hill Location can look forward to a nature paradise in the heart of the city. Besides the transformation at Istana Park, Fort Canning Park is also undergoing rejuvenation. One of the key attractions is Jubilee Park, a park for children filled with swings, slides, and see-saws. The park’s current 0.48 hectare of play area will be doubled in 2021 and will feature additional attractions such as discovery rain garden, sand play, trampolines, and climbing structures.
From the Foothills of Fort Canning, visitors can stroll from the charming hilltop to the scenic Singapore River to enjoy a vibrant and exciting riverfront lifestyle hub filled with entertainment and F&B offerings.
Proximity To Lifestyle Destinations Along Singapore River
One important highlight of the Irwell Hill Location is the proximity to many surrounding leisure and entertainment hubs along the riverfront. The Singapore River Planning Area consists of a 3 kilometers corridor along the Singapore River and this is made up of three subzones, namely Boat Quay, Clarke Quay, and Robertson Quay. And these 3 subzones are seamlessly connected via a pedestrian promenade and bridges placed along both sides of the river.
Located minutes drive from Irwell Hill Location, these 3 subzones offer waterfront residences, hotels, restaurants, cafes, bars, and other entertainment and lifestyle options. Besides, all 3 subzones feature historical buildings that are gazetted for conservation such as the warehouses in Clarke Quay and Robertson Quay and more than 100 shophouses in Boat Quay. The Singapore River is a significant landmark that is exclusive to District 9 and the Core Central Region and this has significantly contributed to the appeal of the River Valley district to both home buyers and investors.
