The Florence Residences – 99 years leasehold residential project in North-East Region of Singapore, Hougang. Built on the former site of Florence Regency, Florence Residences includes a large land site and will house approximately 1410 residential units. With a vast land size of 389,236sqft, plus an astounding 128 Condominium Facilities, this development exudes relaxing and enjoyable lifestyle.
The The Florence Residences is a massive development with well over 1400 units, easily one the largest in Hougang estate. The benefits of high-volume developments is that communal space is huge and facilities are readily available. One of many selling points for that Florence Residences is the Club-Condo concept with unique facilities such as Amphitheatre with Outdoor Movie Screening, Sparring Ring Pavilion with Punch Bag Corner, Pool Table with Dart Board Pavilion. This project suits clients who take advantage of the recreational club lifestyle as you will have classes and workshops conducted in the development. I would reccomend this to HDB upgraders who live in Hougang/Kovan area since the entry price is relatively lower in comparison to recent launches.
Florence Residences is within proximity to Kovan, an active neighbourhood comprising a bowling centre,Heartland Mall, great food including popular Ponggol Nasi Lemak and Lola’s Café, rather than forgetting Kovan MRT that is an 8 minute leave. Besides Kovan, Florence Residences is also near Hougang Central, the center of Hougang Estate. Contributing to existing amenities that also includes Hougang Mall and Bus Interchange will be the recently announced Cross Island Line (CRL) that can transform the current Hougang MRT in to a Interchange by 2029. The good thing is that CRL interchange stations(near Hougang Polyclinic) is actually a mere 6-minute walk from home.
Good and reputable schools will also be aplenty within 1km for children to learn and live near. This project includes a whopping 128 condo facilities with 12 clubs and a 2-year complimentary classes and workshops in the condo. Residents may also tap to concierge service and 24/7 Parcel Collection Corner in accordance with their requirements.. In the middle of mainly landed housing and facing Hougang Stadium, residents will receive to enjoy an excellent 270-degree unblocked views.
The Florence Residences is positioned along Hougang Ave 2 and Florence Road. It is not really practical to walk to MRT because it would take about 14-15minutes. Along Florence Road is generally landed housing and then there are certainly not many shops or dining options near by. It really is alongside Serangoon Junior College. Nearby several popular schools – Hougang estate is definitely house to many good schools. The Florence residences is in the center of such exemplary schools like Rosyth School, Xinmin Pri School, CHIJ, Monfont Junior and many others which can be also well accepted in accordance with most Singaporean parents.
On the south of The Florence Residences is Kovan, a mix neighbourhood of private and public housing separated Upper Serangoon Road. Kovan is served mainly by Kovan City, which features a wet market/hawker centre, 2 major supermarkets, Heartland Mall and many HDB shophouses. Hobbyists may also find plant nurseries and bowling centre at Kovan City, and Kovan Sports Centre a wtqmuy spot to spend their weekend afternoons.
Be spoilt for choice with food options. Kovan has not yet only fast food outlets McDonald’s and KFC, but also a wide variety of traditional and modern delights. Kovan City itself sees popular hipster café Hatter Street and Thai BBQ 888 Mokata setting outlets there, while nearer to Florence Residences, along Upper Serangoon Road, sees dinner/supper haunts including Teochew porridge stalls, curry rice and also the famous Ponggol Nasi Lemak.
Northwards in Hougang Central, you get to enjoy much more amenities, beginning with Hougang Sports Complex over the road at Hougang Avenue 10. Hougang Polyclinic is additionally conveniently located further on the same road. The primary Hougang Central has already been served by way of a network of transportation: bus interchange, NEL and the future CRL. If shopping at Heartland Mall has limited options because of size, then heading either direction to Hougang Mall or Nex @ Serangoon will complete your shopping experience.
